Lubrizol Accelerator Program a thing of beauty to some brands as it helps companies develop new products

When Curan Mehra wanted to develop a concentrated hand soap pod that would dissolve in water and dispense as a foam, he contacted the Lubrizol Corp., best known for creating specialty chemicals for transportation and industry.

He and his father, Sanjiv, the CEO of EOS Products, a multinational skin care company, wanted to work with the 92-year-old, Wickliffe-based company’s new accelerator program, which helps startup beauty brands develop and manufacture new products.

While the Mehras had access to their own chemists and had never worked with Lubrizol, they felt the accelerator provided an advantage. Not only could Lubrizol’s chemists help create a formulation for the pod, but the company also provided testing and other resources to help bring a sustainable, new product to market.

“The team was very enthusiastic about the product,” Sanjiv Mehra said.

Brandon Ford, chief accelerator officer for Lubrizol Life Science, said he and his team, based

best summer beauty products and treatments


Now your skin is all glowy and fresh. Next is the base – use a luminous primer followed by foundation. We love BeneFit Porefessional Pearl Primer, (, $25) matched with Anastasia Beverly Hills Luminous Foundation (, $70). And now for the glimmering dolphin finish: highlighter in hand (we love Nars The Multiple in Copacabana;, $62), add to the high points on your face, that is the brow bone, temples, top of the cheeks, bridge of the nose and the chin and then blend.

Try Chanel Le Lift Crème de Nuit (, $225) which is all about hydrating skin while you sleep.


Our lips need some serious TLC right now. Wearing masks and breathing in trapped air can leave them parched and flaking, so the first thing to address is dry skin. A great way to do this is to exfoliate with a sugar-based scrub that polishes

My Favourite Beauty Products Contain This Very Specific Super Ingredient

Like so many of you, I’ve found myself taking a closer look at the ingredients found in my beauty products, particularly over the past couple of years. And while I’ve certainly got a long way to go in terms of thoroughly cleaning up my routine, I’m beginning to phase out some ingredients which I know are doing my body more harm than good. As such, I’m becoming increasingly familiar with the names of ingredients which I previously wouldn’t have given a second thought. 

It wasn’t until recently, however, that I began to realise that several of my favourite beauty products all contain the same ingredient: something called monoi oil. Coincidence? I think not. All of the products I use that contain monoi oil, across haircare and skincare, happen to be incredibly moisturising and nourishing. And, after some research, I think it’s high time this hero ingredient gets the recognition it

Nordstrom’s New Circular Beauty Initiative Makes Recycling Products Easier Than Ever

Creating a circular beauty industry is proving incredibly difficult. The cosmetics and personal care categories face an obstacle course on their quest for sustainability, with hoops to jump through that include toxic ingredients, hazardous waste from common items like nail polish and perfume, plus so, so much plastic. The United Nations estimates that we produce 300 million tons of plastic trash every year (nearly the weight of the entire human population), and beauty packaging is largely to blame thanks to pumps, mirrored compacts, and caps that can’t be processed by curbside recycling programs. Up to this point, much of the innovation in low-impact environmental practices has been led by adaptable indie brands that set the standard for Big Beauty with clever mushroom-based Styrofoam alternatives and compostable materials. Today, Nordstrom’s TerraCycle partnership takes a significant step toward a more circular future with BeautyCycle, a product take-back and recycling initiative accepting a

What Is Biden Beauty? What to Know About the Mystery Brand’s Products and Creators

With the election quickly approaching, it’s more important than ever to register to vote if you haven’t already and create voting plans and back-up plans (you can still vote in person if your mail-in ballot arrives late or has an error, after all). It’s also a great time to donate to the political campaigns and organizations you care deeply for. To further encourage that, an anonymous group of people in the beauty industry has gathered to create a brand that revolves around an unlikely influencer: Joe Biden.

You read that correctly: Biden Beauty, a Joe Biden-themed makeup brand, debuted online on September 30. The brand is not officially tied to the Biden/Harris presidential campaign but does aim to raise money in support of it. One hundred percent of the proceeds from its first product launch will be donated to the Democratic National Committee, which aids Democratic political candidates like

The Best Dark Lipsticks to Wear This Fall and Beyond

It doesn’t need to be fall to wear dark lipstick, but there’s something about the cooler temperatures, longer evenings, and changing leaves that makes a lot of people want to break out deeper, vampier lip colors like burgundy, plum, espresso, and even pure inky black. While picking out a gorgeous dark-hued lipstick is a lot easier than say, finding your perfect neutral, the mass amount of options on the market does make it intimidating to know which ones to invest in. That’s why we consulted some of the top makeup artists to come up with a comprehensive list of the best dark lipstick shades out there. For starters, many of the makeup artists we spoke to prefer dark matte shades over dark shades with a shiny or satin finish. “It’s personal preference, but I feel it

Biden Beauty Products and Details

Anonymity doesn’t often have a place in the beauty industry, but it does when you’re launching a top-secret, incognito brand that’s working with the extensive power of the beauty industry to get Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and running mate Kamala Harris into office. We’re referring to a brand-new cosmetics company entering the market: Biden Beauty.

“Arguably, it’s the most important election of our lifetime and with a standing president who wants to abolish universal healthcare, women’s rights, environmental rights — not to mention 200,000+ Americans now dead from coronavirus — it’s vital we take a stand,” the founder of Biden Beauty (who asked to stay anonymous) told POPSUGAR.

Without a doubt the most influential new beauty brand of the year, Biden Beauty is merging beauty and politics in hopes to create real change in the 2020 presidential election. The first product to launch is the Biden Beat, a dual-sided
