Embody Retinol And ACV Gummies

March 5, 2021

The gummy biz is really just taking off. And now, EMBODY is the world’s first retinol gummy with a mission to radically evolve how women treat their skin. They are replacing hundreds of skincare products with one simple tasty gummy. Even better, Embody is a women-owned, minority-owned, women-led brand.

Just two a day (it’s hard to eat only two – they are THAT yummy), and your skin will appear more evenly pigmented, texture is eliminated, and collagen production is increased resulting in more youthful looking skin to produce a luminous glow.

Also right here on Amazon!

A formula designed to provide a dewy glow, reduce blemishes, promote cell turnover, strengthen hair, skin, nails and prevent premature aging (inclusive of ingredients like Vitamin A, C, D3, E, Biotin, Folic Acid, B12 and more). 

A juicy apple-flavored, inside-out wellness solution is designed to support healthy gut flora, improve digestion and replenish antioxidants. Supporting your gut health helps relieve inflammation in your skin and throughout your body; poor gut health can actually be the cause of acne and aging in the skin (it breaks down collagen!!).  Embody‘s ACV gummy provides the full recommended dose of ACV in just 2 gummies!

While Embody’s Retinol Gummy helps to promote skin cell turnover, the ACV gummy promotes gut health – while both add to the whole body approach to skin care. Most consumers don’t think about starting in their guts (healthy diet, probiotics, gut-supporting vitamins) when some of their skin concerns can be treated with a simple change in diet.

And the ACV Gummy!

 

More about Jenn Chung, founder of Embody:

Jenn Chung the founder of Embody Jenn immigrated to the US from Vietnam with her mother when she was 1 years old. She worked her way up through her family cosmetics company (Forever Beaumore) from packing boxes at age 15 to stepping in as President at age 24. Seeing first-hand how successful her family’s beauty supplements were in the Vietnamese market, Jenn was inspired to create a brand for women just like her and bring eastern beauty remedies to a modern western audience in a fun, palatable way.

Celebrating Black History Month with biophile

February 9, 2021

February is Black History Month, and as a black-owned beauty brand, biophileco-founder Grace Fooden is sharing what this month means to her and how biophile is embracing it.

Grace Fooden is an African American businesswoman with over three decades of experience as a merchant, general manager and brand innovator. Grace is on a mission to inspire the next generation of POC business executives and creatives. She is on the board of advisors at Cal Poly Pomona’s Apparel, Merchandising and Marketing division and is a guest mentor at Otis College of Art and Design and the Fashion Design department of Long Beach University.

As a black female founder, how are you celebrating diversity at biophileI take time to share my journey with students at local junior colleges. I hope to inspire them to think outside the box about their career.

Why is it important that we celebrate Black History Month?  We have to honor the contributions of African Americans in society that have been overlooked!

Who are some African American leaders that have inspired you?  Innovation in science holds a special place in my heart. Harold Amos was a microbiologist and the first African American department chair at Harvard Medical school.


Biophile is a new generation of biologically advanced, sustainable skincare that works to balance the microbiome, activate the skin’s regenerative abilities and strengthen skin barrier function. Biophile’s breakthrough trio of products—Root Bionic Refining Essence, award-winning Bio-Shroom Rejuvenating Serum, and Bio Barrier Nourishing Oil—feed the skin with probiotic bacteria and botanicals, fungi and superfoods to boost skin immunity and hydration, increase cellular energy, reduce wrinkles and pigmentation, and increase smoothness.

Show interest in the girl. Choose the right partner, try to remember the name and learn a little more about the girl. Try to get to know the person at least a little so that your fleeting connection will be remembered. See the girl as a person, not an object of desire, so that she can feel at ease. Nobody likes the feeling https://rufreechats.com/cams/random.html of being used. [8]
Take your time or you will look desperate. The girl will not want to leave with the guy who is looking for easy prey.
The girl must show a reciprocal interest. A shy gaze, a smile, raised eyebrows, and a willingness to flirt sexually are great signals. You are well on your way to success if she purses or licks her lips, strokes her hair or body in no uncertain terms, or accentuates her seductive curves.
