Botanicals + Beauty at Chicago’s IECSC

The Botanicals + Beauty Products at Chicago IECSC 2022

Botanicals + Beauty Products Lead The Show

There are so many beauty products from makeup, lash extensions, lash lifts, brow tinting, microblading, and so much more that are making a splash at the Chicago IECSC!

Botanicals are also coming from so many different brands. Some brands push botanicals as their entire focus while others only leverage botanicals in a small way in order to enhance the overall impact of the product on the skin. 


Relief-Bio Powder from Hale & Hush

Hale & Hush uses the power of botanicals in their products without bringing fragrance into the line. They leverage the healing properties of Willow Bark in their Relief-Bio Powder. It’s important to remember that botanicals include plants, flowers, trees and grasses.

Hale and Hush’s Relief-Bio Powder is an expert blend of eight botanical extracts makes Relief Bio-Powder a powerful dermatologist-tested sensitive skin aid.  With fast-acting abilities, it quickly rescues skin under attack from redness, irritation and itchiness. Relief Bio-Powder also helps conceal redness and, when water is added to make a paste, becomes a soothing mask.


PRO Lite Serum from Lira Clinical

One of the most popular clinical brands in the professional skin care market is Lira Clinical. If you investigate this brand, you’ll quickly find that they use botanicals almost all of their products

Take their PRO Lite Serum, your clients will discover a vivid complexion with this potent brightening serum. Effectively lightens and brightens skin tone with Sea Fennel Plant Stem Cells, Gooseberry and Mulberry Extracts. Utilizes anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and advanced redness reducing ingredients.

We Found Some Brand New Products 

We saw so many other clinical brands who were using botanicals in some very cool ways. 

We saw Cosmedix launched a new product, the Bakuchiol Complete Plant Based Retinol Alternative Serum, it is formulated with skin-loving ingredients like deeply hydrating Squalane and vegan retinol alternative Bakuchioli. 

We found Société Skincare launched an Acai Berry Peel, it reduces inflammation, requires minimal to no downtime and is a great anti-glycation treatment!  

G.M. Collin launched Nutritive Cream, a rich, nourishing cream formulated with a powerful combination of ceramides, Canadian red maple bark extract and chestnut extract, and enriched with shea and moringa butters, this extremely nourishing and enveloping cream.

Don’t Be A Make Up Artist – Be A Make Up Expert

We get it, you’re not a make up artist. But your clients are wearing make up, it’s a multi-billion dollar a year business. They’re buying it somewhere. Clients will never want that to rock a natural look day in and day out.  Be their make up expert.  Have a good quality brand on hand to sell them, so the make up they use is an extension of your skin care. 

We found Color Me Perfect which is also owned by Skin Perfect – this brand has two branches, so their make up is an extension of their skin care.

The same can be said for Gina Marie Cosmetics, it is offered to spas with their high quality skin care.   

Brows + Lashes Are A Huge Business

We have watched the brow and lash business explode over the past 3 years. Everyone was getting their brows and lashes done do make sure everything above the mask looked amazing. 

Now, that business is cemented into the U.S spa customer’s way of life.  Don’t miss a single opportunity. We met so many brands who are offering incredible products that can help estheticians expand their business to more than just skin care services. 

We talked to Elleebana about their henna tint and lash lift service. What we learned was incredible. You can charge $175 for brow henna and a lash lift.  Then we did some calculations add that to 3 regular client’s facials in a week and you’ll grow your business by over $26,000 a year! 

We met Vanessa, CEO of The Lash Professional and found that her company has everything you need for amazing lash extensions. 

If you’re looking for amazing lash tint – check out HairPearl, they have a very wide variety of shades that you can choose from!  

Intimate + Sexual Wellness

It’s the new millennium and women want amazing sex and don’t want to have to be ashamed of wanting their whole body to be treated well. Let’s stop the #shamegame and help women look and feel their best about their whole body. 

We saw your good friends Bryght in Chicago and they are shameless about intimate bleaching! While their T-shirts say ANAL BLEACHING, they will really Bryghten any area of the body – but they got your attention with anal.  TBC Academy will teach you how to do a vajacial and we love the Hale & Hush Hush Hydrate Mask or an IM SO JELLY Mask in a vajacial. 

Then we met MedAmour who preach Intimate Wellness – they sell Solutions for Sexual Wellness.  I spoke with Lily, the owner of MedAmour who told me that her the items she sells can help women with pre and post Pregnancy, pre and post menopause and pelvic floor health.  There are so many times women suffer needlessly, she wants to show them how they can have incredible sexual wellness.
