Understanding Acne with BiON – The Chemistry Within

Andrea Matczyszyn, LE and Director of Education for BiON Skincare will be leading you through the causes of acne within the skin based on its chemistry. The goal in treating acne is to reduce inflammation, accelerate wound healing, regulate sebum production and reduce cutaneous pigmentation.

This is accomplished by controlling the bacteria and their lipases (enzymes) and preventing irritation and blockage of the follicles. Discussion of other factors that trigger acne, such as diet, stress, menstruation and ultraviolet radiation will help you to become the expert in your community for acne treatment.

BiON Skincare – Corrective Acne Formulas

Corrective acne formulas are essential for the successful treatment of acne. Andrea Matczyszyn, LE and Director of Education will present BiON’s acne product ingredients and discuss why BiON Skincare has been a leader in the acne treatment industry for over 20 years.

Our ingredients kill P. acnes and other undesirable bacteria by using a small amount of salicylic acid and eliminating benzoyl peroxide. Use of unique antibacterial ingredients such as cinnamon bark extract, sage extract, turmeric extract and wild marjoram extract were selected because each has multiple functions in controlling acne. Learn how to treat acne with natural ingredients for clear skin.

As head of Dectro’s research & development department, Mr. Beaumont is eager to improve permanent hair removal treatment and aesthetic care application.

As such, he was intimately involved in the conception of the company’s first computerized epilation system, the ‘APILUS’, which introduced personalized programs adapted to each body areas and stored in a customer file for easy access. Mr. Beaumont is a regular attendee at international conventions to support Dectro’s worldwide distributors and to speak at specialised seminars on electrolysis or aesthetic technologies.

ELECTROEPILATION REVOLUTION – From Humble Beginnings to a Bright Future

In the last few decades, discoveries in hair anatomy put in sharp focus the key elements responsible for hair regeneration. Dectro was involved in an experimental study that investigated stem cell destruction processes around the follicle using 27MHz technology. This study shed much needed light on the way ultrarapid electroepilation treatments affect hairs. The accumulated scientific insight contributed in turn to develop new computerized modalities and patented applications allowing for ever more efficient and comfortable definitive hair removal treatments.

As we discuss the many advances that occurred over the one hundred forty-five-year history of electrolysis, we will provide pointers to what future developments in the field may look like. In this new highly competitive hair removal market, electrologists need to be prepared to keep up with the pace of change, whether by furthering their knowledge and looking into new, innovative tools to enhance the overall quality of their work as well as the comfort of their clientele. This lecture is an invitation to become part of an ongoing revolution. Get acquainted with the possibilities that are offered to you today to become a successful leader in modern permanent hair removal procedures.

Michael Beresford

Michael Beresford is the president of Moor Spa Inc – based in Vancouver, BC. Michael has a Bachelor degree in Mathematics from the University of Reading. He spent five years working in research institutes in the UK, Switzerland and Germany, developing computer software that analyzed brain function in people practicing meditation. It was during this time that he became interested in Moor therapy and the spa concept. Michael moved to Canada in 1996 to make Moor-based products and treatments available within the North America spa industry.

Michael has always felt strongly that spas should be a refuge not only from the stress of day-to-day life, but also from the toxicity of the modern world – so product purity and safety are at the forefront of the formulation and development of Moor Spa products. Michael has over 20 years experience in natural product development, and has spoken at industry events in Canada, U.S.A., Brazil, South Africa, China and Australia.

The Urgent Need For Biodegradable Product Packaging and The Moor Spa Solution

Plastic proliferation including ocean plastic garbage dumps and microplastic pollution, is one of humanity’s most intractable problems and product packaging is its single, largest contributor. Recycling is not the solution once hoped for, as only 10% of recyclable plastics actually end up being recycled. Moor Spa is the first product company in the spa industry to convert its product packaging to a biodegradable alternative.

This presentation will examine the various solutions currently available including paper, glass and bioplastics, and highlight our solution – a technology developed in the UK by a company called Symphony Environmental. This causes the plastic packaging to fully biodegrade in less than one year (conventional plastic can take up to 500 years!).

What is a Natural Product and Can It Really be Effective?

Natural and organic products are becoming increasingly popular at an extraordinary rate. These days consumers are just as likely to look at an ingredient list as they are to be impressed by the packaging of a product. But what defines a natural or organic product and just how natural or organic should it be? Also, if it’s natural or organic can it really be effective?

With over 20 years of experience in natural product development Michael will provide insight into the world of natural and organic ingredients and products; and tools that can help you to identify both contenders and pretenders.

Moor – The Perfect Spa Therapy For Purification & Revitalization

Moor Therapy has been used for centuries for purifying and rejuvenating the body. It is one of the original traditional spa therapies and is now also widely used in conventional medicine throughout Europe. In more recent times, it has also been found to produce a variety of benefits for the skin. Moor Spa’s Austrian Deep Moor is a synthesis of hundreds of herbs, plants and flowers that has been cocooned within the Earth for many thousands of years ago and consists of a large variety of minerals and organic substances including organic sulphur and humic & fulvic acids – widely recognized for their detoxifying and revitalizing benefits.

Guyane-Élise Lacoste

With a degree in marketing from the HEC, and a diploma in Podology, Reflexology and as Natural Medicine Consultant, Guyane-Élise Lacoste has cumulated over 30 years’ experience in cosmetics and esthetics. Her knowledge of important ingredients in products has led her to believe the industry needed quality products with no harmful ingredients! While studying podology, she had the idea of creating her own line of products.

After opening her clinic called Le Pied d’Estale in St-Sauveur, Québec, she initiated her research and development, which led to the introduction of her homegrown products: PodoSensé, the ultimate line of foot care products! In 2018, she opened her own school for podology and continuous trainings, Académie Conceptuelle.

Taking care of your feet with PodoSensé

I am here to talk about the importance of taking care of your feet by giving you some tips on hygiene and footcare, to avoid problems that can become very painful with time. PodoSensé has been developed for that main reason, to help, relief and give answers to most feet problems. There are several lines of products for foot care, but few combine the needs of relief and well-being.

PodoSensé is a Canadian company located in Saint-Sauveur, QC, which develops, formulates, and manufactures a complete range of products for foot care. The range offers safe solutions for all people suffering from precarious health conditions. The guideline of the range is the benefits of essential oils, natural ingredients and / or derived from natural ingredients. Our range offers the solution from A to Z for foot care. Time to discover it!

Among the panoply of products offered for foot care, how to find your way

For several years, the foot care and / or beauty market has been served by one or two international companies. These companies offer a variety of products that aim to relieve and/or eliminate certain unpleasant conditions that we find in the skin and toenails.

The offer is often the consequence of the demand, but recently, the demand has changed. Now, our environmental awareness is much higher, we learn a lot more about the ingredients to focus on and those that we should avoid as much as possible … as much as possible because it is difficult to find a product that exactly meets our needs in terms of “natural”. We are also aware of over-packaging… which contributes to the pollution of our environment. Which ingredients should we prefer, which should we avoid? We will try to resume this complex matter.

Skin Care for The Golden Years: The New Rules for Ageing well

How you age has everything to do with the choices you make right now – what you eat, how active you are, how you spend your free time.  As we enter into our 40’s and 50’s, the body begins to naturally shift into a mode of ‘maintaining’. It is not producing and growing anymore; hormones shift and cellular function is less efficient.

Cosmetic formulations have evolved to understand these physiological changes but combined with the right life style choices, you can radically alter and even reverse some of the symptoms that we accept as normal sign of ageing. Join Trish as she takes a look at a variety of factors that influence the ageing process and how the skin can be managed during this time of life.

TheraGenesis Skin care: What’s new and what’s hot
