Higher Education Skincare Celebrates a Sustainability Milestone With a New Look -- and It's A+

Jun 17, 2021

Higher Education Skincare Group Shot IRVINE, Calif. - June 17, 2021 - (Newswire.com) Higher Education Skincare, the dermatologist-approved clean skincare brand adored by Millennial and Gen Z 'skintellectuals' for its ethically-produced products, has debuted a new look that makes a statement on the shelf and off. Newly housed in bold, bright packaging made from previously recycled materials, the redesign is part of Higher Education's sustainability initiative to be a fully eco-conscious beauty brand. Since its initial launch in 2018, Higher Education Skincare's mission has been to provide intelligent skincare to an intelligent generation. This means, the brand does whatever it takes to stay on course with the Higher Education mission and its sustainability objectives. Whether that's consulting with their Advisory Board or aligning with like-minded partners, such as its recent support of The Ocean Conservatory and Seizing Every Opportunity, to further the importance of human responsibility as it relates to both the beauty and ecological landscape. "Beauty goes beyond skin deep; it's a lifestyle that involves being kind not only to ourselves, but also to our environment," says Jim Headley, President & CEO. "At Higher Education, we hold our brand accountable to a higher standard of quality and care, and will continue to take meaningful steps toward the efficacy and ethics of our products in order to make an impact among our consumers, as well as encourage our peers to do the same." Higher Education Skincare's passion and commitment to inclusive, cruelty-free, USA-made, vegan and sustainably produced products drives the brand in its purposeful approach to skincare. The brand boasts six skincare categories, from cleansers to sun protection. Products throughout the collection are formulated with smart ingredients including antioxidants, bentonite clay and fractionated melanin in doses that deliver glowing results for healthy skin from the inside out. Its online Skin Analysis tool, which was created alongside a team of leading dermatologists, offers a personalized regimen for every skin type. While serious ingredients and ethics go into creating the Higher Education brand and collection, its relatability is reflected in the playful names of each product, speaking to both the intent of use and the everyday student life experienced by its core users. Double Major, a lightweight moisture relief gel, pulls double duty as both a skin soother and moisturizer using lush humectants and moisture-binding skin replenishers. Cram Session is a reminder that skin needs vitamins too, and is a daily antioxidant packed with plant extracts, peptides, melanin, and vitamins A, C, and E to protect the skin and limit the production of free radicals. "As a result of acquired knowledge through technology, young adults have learned to value transparency and morally-produced products like ours," said Deb Nash, Founder of Higher Education Skincare. "This generation keeps our team motivated and gives us hope for a conscientious future in the beauty world and beyond."

NEW YORK - June 17, 2021 - (Newswire.com) Pitroda Art is pleased to present the final public installation of artwork by 15 artists participating in Movement: Art for Social Change, the annual juried exhibition that celebrates artists as champions of positive social change. The 14 artworks, selected by a renowned jury and responding to the theme of racial justice and equity, will be projected onto The Brooklyn Public Library in New York City on June 21 from 9 p.m. until Midnight. The art projection in New York City is the fifth public art projection by Pitroda Art on a cross-country tour of major U.S. cities. The iconic locations for the art projection tour were carefully curated to tell a larger narrative of racial justice across the U.S. In Washington, D.C., the projection was on the Black Lives Matter Plaza, the city's notorious street mural a stone's throw from the White House. In Atlanta, the birthplace of the civil rights movement, the artwork lit up the City Hall. In Los Angeles, the artworks were featured in the historic West Adams neighborhood, dubbed Sugar Hill, where infamous Black entertainers laid the groundwork for the Fair Housing Act, while in Chicago, the projection was showcased in the Bronzeville Art District, the largest African American Art District in the U.S. In addition, Pitroda Art launched an auction of the selected artworks in partnership with Mastercard on its Priceless.com platform, closing on June 23. A portion of the purchase price will be donated to the National Urban League, a historic civil rights organization dedicated to economic empowerment, equality and social justice. The 14 artworks, selected by a panel of jurors, represent poignant, timely interpretations of Black history, racial identity and the current realities of the Black diaspora.  PARTICIPATING ARTISTS Antoine Williams (USA), Àsìkò (UK), Heather Haynes (Canada), Kadiejra O'Neal (Barbados), Lloyd Foster (USA), Mark Wilson (USA) and Paola Zarate (USA), Nombuso Dowelani (South Africa), Paul Ogunlesi (Nigeria), Penda Diakité (USA-Mali), Rohan Patrick (USA), Segun Aiyesan (Nigeria), Tim Davis (USA), Tsoku Maela (South Africa), Winfred Nana Amoah (Ghana).  Pitroda Art is a social enterprise that promotes global contemporary art through curated collections. It was founded by passionate art lovers from three different continents, Sam Pitroda (India/USA), Sonja Miokovic (Serbia/Canada) and Carolina Pozo (Ecuador/USA). Their initiative Movement: Art for Social Change features quarterly curated art collections that explore pressing social issues around the world. The Brooklyn Public Library is among the borough's most democratic civic institutions, serving patrons in every neighborhood. Established in 1896, it is one of the nation's largest public library systems with nearly 700,000 active cardholders. It is a recognized leader in cultural offerings, literacy, out-of-school-time services, workforce development programs, and digital literacy.  MEDIA CONTACT: Angie Kordic, Olu & Company angie@olucompany.com Press Release Service by Newswire.com Original Source: Artworks on Racial Justice Get a Major Public Projection Onto the Brooklyn Public Library
