On a warm summer’s night last week at about 7 pm, a caravan of cars pulled up to our Julius Kingdom Farm and out of the doors spilled a gorgeous gaggle of New York City’s top journalists and press, plus local Vermont friends, neighbors and family. The farm was looking its very best: votive lanterns twinkled in the willow trees, the gazebo glowed with charming string lights and dozens of dangling pink flowers, and the sun was just beginning to set. As sounds of the bluegrass band wafted up from the tent in the field below, the evening officially began: our Natural Technology Summer Summit!
In 2012, we brought together beauty writers and journalists in New York City along with a panel of experts to discuss the next generation of high-performance skincare technology, and how 100% natural, nontoxic ingredients fit into that future. This year, we brought everyone to the farm to continue the conversation, and to share with beauty journalists all that we’ve learned about advanced natural anti-aging technology from the industry experts that we work closely with when we develop our products.
Our expert guests at this year’s Summit were Judi Beerling, the Technical Research Manager at Organic Monitor Ltd in the UK and a practicing chemist; John Milligan, VP of R&D at Twincraft Labs; and Stephen Dahmer, Assistant Clinical Professor of Family Medicine and Community Health in New York City. Together, they illuminated for our visiting journalists some of the inner workings of the skincare and cosmetic industries, just how far natural, nontoxic active ingredients have come in terms of efficacy, and some of the real health reasons for opting for all-natural products.
Let’s get back to the party: Thursday night, we celebrated! We were celebrating the launch of our Honey Blossom Resurfacing Mask, the special company of our visiting guests, Tata’s birthday, and our beautiful Vermont landscape (which was in full bloom along with the rest of us). Below are some photos from the evening; notice the Honey Blossom mask on each plate, and other little details, like the floating flowers inside our fresh iced tea and lemonade containers, the guest book with polaroid cameras at-the-ready for capturing smiles, the truck full of flowers and hay bales.
