Adut Akech joins Estée Lauder as global ambassador

Adut Akech

Estée Lauder, the flagship beauty brand of the Estée Lauder Companies (ELC), has announced Australian-South Sudanese model and activist Adut Akech as its latest global brand ambassador.

Starting her life in a refugee camp in Kenya, Africa, the 21-year-old began her modelling career at 16 after her family emigrated to Australia, and soon became a darling of the fashion world, working with renowned designers such as the late Karl Lagerfeld and going on to grace the cover of numerous magazines including global editions of Vogue and i-D.

Crowned Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards in 2019, Akech made her beauty debut the following year as the face of Valentino’s Born in Rome fragrance, starring alongside Palestinian-Dutch model Anwar Hadid.

Akech described her new role as a “dream come true”, saying: “Estée Lauder has such an amazing heritage, and the story of Mrs Estée Lauder continues to be an inspiration to women around the world.

“Like her, I hope to inspire girls everywhere to never give up on following their dreams.”

Outside of the fashion and beauty world, Akech is also lending her voice to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), using her own story and platform to promote initatives to support refugees globally.

Stéphane de La Faverie, ELC Group President and Global Brand President of Estée Lauder, added: “Adut is one of fashion’s biggest and most influential stars.

“We believe her incredible story, personality and beauty will help us continue to inspire and connect with our consumers and establish her as a beauty icon of her generation.”

Akech will star in campaigns for Estée Lauder’s make-up and skin care products across digital, in-store, TV and print advertisements from this July.

She joins the brand’s star-studded roster of global ambassadors that includes fellow South Sudanese model Anok Yai, as well as Ana de Armas, Bianca Brandolini D’Adda, Carolyn Murphy, Diana Penty, Grace Elizabeth, Karlie Kloss, Kōki and Yang Mi.

MAJI Organics Triple Extra Virgin Argan Oil

The Tree of Life

Argan is a unique type of tree growing only in southern Morocco. It is resilient to the harsh African climate and grows without the need for much cultivation. The tree can often be seen climbed by mountain goats attracted to the black and dry fruits.

Argan is an important source of fuel and food for the Berber community and therefore it is locally call the “tree of life”.

Organic argan oil

Often called “liquid gold”, Argan oil is an organic product extracted from the kernels of the argan tree. It is extremely rich in beneficial nutrients including fatty acids and vitamin E. Its properties make it particularly beneficial for the hair and skin.

Cold-Press extraction

Extraction of the kernels is key to the argan oil production process. In order to extract the kernels, the argan fruits are first dried in the open air and then fleshy pulp of the fruit is removed.

Sometimes the flesh is removed mechanically without the need to dry the fruits. The flesh is usually used as feed for animals.

The extraction is semi-mechanical (not chemical), then the process of filtration and decantation are proceeded.

MAJI Organics provides “triple extra virgin grade” argan oil, which is the summum quality in the world (free acidity expressed by leonic acid is less than 0.5%)

 

Novexpert Expert Anti-Aging Eye Contour

Expert Anti-Aging Eye Contour

At what age do the first wrinkles appear? On average at the age of 25 and mainly on the eye contour! If this area is affected first it is because of its fragility: an epidermis 4 times thinner than the rest of the face. The eye contour therefore requires a targeted and expert approach. The Novexpert Laboratories’ approach is available in the form of a real charter.

  • Protect: a hypoallergenic, non-photosensitizing formula with no labelled allergens.
  • Regenerate: an amino acid that restores the quantity of stem cells, key elements in tissue regeneration.
  • Correct: an algae extract harvested in France that prevents and reduces the visible signs of dark circles. A simple gesture for multiple actions. Visible performance: smoothed skin relief, reduced wrinkles and a more luminous eye contour.

Apply Expert Anti-Aging Eye Contour to the lower eyelid from the inner corner of the eye to the end of crow’s-feet wrinkles. A very small amount of product is sufficient.
Frequency of use: 1 to 2 times a day (morning and/or evening).

Comments From Mike Booth, Aura-Soma and Anastasia, Creative Perfumers

The clear pink combination is for lovers of light. It is a bottle which reminds us of the subtleties of life. The nuances of beauty and aesthetics are brought into awareness.

To help us to not judge ourselves too harshly and to be more caring for ourselves by ourselves. Can also be supportive of the intuitive sense within us. “If Night flowers were intended for the day, they would be red, not white”.

Perfumers have chosen a “bouquet of delicate white flowers” to encapsulate the warmth, tenderness and compassion associated with this bottle. Its simplicity, humbleness and yet eternal beauty is reflected in the Pink Lotus Flower which forms the heart note of this scent.
