Iceland is hot right now, no question about it! Seems like everyone we know has recently been to or is about to visit the country’s many natural attractions including glaciers, hot springs, wild horses, puffins, and black sand beaches.
We are pleased to announce that we have worked for Bioeffect, a ground-breaking line of Icelandic cosmetics. Why are these products so special? They are super effective thanks to a powerful skin-rejuvenating ingredient EGF or Epidermal Growth Factor, heralded by scientists as “the future of anti-aging”.
And although there are a handful of other EGF-based products on the market, the Icelandic EGF used by Bioeffect is different in the way it is produced. Exceptionally pure, it is actually grown inside bio-engineered barley plants that thrive in bacteria-free volcanic ash.
In Iceland, the brand sold 330,000 units of EGF SERUM in its first year, back in 2010. An astounding figure for a country with a population of just 320,000, and even more impressive when you consider that 25 per cent of the population is aged under 12. To this day, 30 per cent of women over 30 here use it. But it isn’t just Icelanders who have been convinced.

Crowned the Queen of the Green Skincare Movement by Forbes Magazine, Tata Harper, the Colombian-born founder of her eponymous skincare line, relied on Beautyterm to revamp the brand’s packaging translations.
Tata and her husband turned a dreamy 1200-acre Vermont farm known as Julius Kingdom into a multinational luxury-beauty business, where they live and work with their 3 children and countless dogs.
Produced exclusively on the farm, which is nestled in the heart of Champlain Valley, the collection is dedicated to toxic-free wellness. It features many raw ingredients grown in the surrounding fields of lavender and the organic garden.
Beauty and health guru Gwyneth Paltrow described it as “pure, natural luxury”:
“With her chic green-glass jars and pots, Tata Harper set a new bar for glamour within the natural skincare space; she’s also taken authenticity in sourcing to a new level, formulating and growing the majority of the ingredients in her products on a certified organic farm in Vermont.”
“Indulgent luxury that won’t cost the earth, and could help save it.”
We are proud to announce our collaboration with this exciting niche perfumer from Paris, firmly positioned at the leading edge of sustainability and the unisex fragrance trend.
Debuting with a single scent Tentation 1: Contre Lui, a fragrance for men and women, Eve & Dapnée is conquering the world of fragrance one note at a time, while helping erase barriers between genders.
The niche perfume house celebrates sustainable luxury through its commitment to “respect mankind and the environment in order to become part of an inspiring, sustainable way of life”.
Tentation 1: Contre Lui was composed by the talented Delphine Thierry, nose behind several scents by Lubin, Masque Milano, Cloon Keen Atelier, 12 Parfumeurs Francais and most recently Malbrun extraits. It is 100% natural, created without GMOs, artificial colors, synthetic fragrance or phthalates.
Recently featured at Fashion Preview Canada, Montreal’s main fashion showcase, Eve & Daphnée is now poised to take the Scandinavian market by storm.
It will be hard to find another client with a mantra more in tune with our beliefs. Skyn Iceland’s genesis and purpose are so much like our own that we feel a particular kinship with their entire concept. And we believe that nowadays every woman out there is likely to appreciate the brand’s healing philosophy behind its products.
Skyn ICELAND was born from a life-changing mission to treat and alleviate the effects of stress on skin while promoting a stress-free life full of balance, health and wellness. The company’s founder, Sarah Kugelman, transformed her own experience of stress, which left her hospitalized, with a weakened immune system, into a personal journey to find harmony between inner and outer beauty. That journey took her quite literally to Iceland, a pure, pristine place of great beauty and peace, whose people impressed her with their incredible longevity and vibrant, healthy skin.
Having chosen a career in a fast-paced environment where deadlines are forever looming over our heads, we too have each had our share of work-related stress. And illness. That’s why we also recognize and can personally attest to the tremendous impact of stress on internal health. Our goals are therefore very much in alignment with Skyn Iceland’s.
We work daily to maintain a pleasant, stress-free and wholesome working environment that promotes respectful relationships with our clients, collaborating linguists and writers alike. We value kindness and consideration, politeness and good manners. We stand for fairness, honesty and integrity. And we love having healthy-looking skin!
I scored: 37. A great accomplishment but, believe it or not, a few years back this score would have been through the roof!
“How do you do it? Surely you live in some pastoral setting with no phone, no computer and minimal obligations. Or is it possible you’ve simply trained yourself to let things go and focus on what’s important in life?

Now just round out your amazing lifestyle with Glacial Face Wash and the ANTIDOTE Quenching Daily Lotion and you will be our hero!”

Of course everyone has their own standards. We, for one, are big fans of day-to-day kindness and considerateness. In that department, celebrity make-up artist Rose-Marie Swift of RMS Beauty is our top winner. She definitely takes the cake when it comes to simple, unadulterated human interaction with people that work for her. And she has an extremely interesting story.
Rose-Marie has been a make-up artist for over 20 years. Her work has been featured in every major beauty magazine from Vogue, W, Harper’s, Numero, Interview, to Elle. Her make-up has appeared in ads for dozens of campaigns including Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Thierry Mugler, The Gap and Victoria’s Secret. She has worked with the biggest names in the industry including Gisele, Miranda Kerr, Milla Jovovich, Mario Sorrenti, Hedi Slimane and Terry Richardson.
Rose-Marie was originally a musician, the lead singer of a punk band called Insects, who were backing up the Ramones. She needed money to buy a microphone and ended up getting a gig doing stage makeup. One job lead to another and, eventually in 2004, Rose-Marie started a website called BeautyTruth, which generated a lot of press and even more work. People were asking for her opinion, many wanting to know what she thought about natural makeup brands. This is when Rose-Marie started playing around making her own formulations and experimenting with the models she worked for.
RMS Beauty is an all-natural, raw-coconut-oil-based brand that carries one of the best face highlighters of all time, the luminzer. The line was launched at the end of 2008 with 18 products — 6 eyeshadows, 6 lip-to-cheek, 3 Un Cover Ups, 2 lip balms, and the luminizer.
Needless to say Rose-Marie is a very busy and highly successful businesswoman but she never forgets to be as kind and considerate as ever. She is living proof that you can be hobnobbing with celebrities and remain a “real mensch”. We love working with you Rose-Marie! xoxoxoxox
