VEGAMOUR Launches the Industry’s First Full-Line of CBD Products for Hair Growth

June 25, 2019

Introducing the first scientifically-back CBD line to improve and strengthen hair for scalp, lash and brow!

Check this out:

  • 100% vegan formulas
  • 94% more effective lash/brow density & volume delivery
  • 70% less hair shedding after 4 months
  • 50% greater hair density after 4 months
  • 34% more effective lash/brow length delivery
  • 0% negative side effects

It’s true, y’all. VEGAMOUR has created what could be the world’s cleanest, most effective hair restoration formulas – with trusted, scientifically proven ingredients, and without harmful toxins or unwanted side effects.

I just met with Dan Hodgdon, CEO of VEGAMOUR to learn about the new CBD line, the difference between their approach to including CBD compared to the rest of the market, and learned about the full line, which I am now a seriously obsessive fan girl of. So, the new line that is blowing me away consists of:

  • CBD & Biotin Vegan Hair Gummies, which are the first hair vitamins to harness the powerful CBD medicinal and therapeutic benefits along with vitamins and minerals that feed and support hair growth
  • CBD hair growth serum for the scalp
  • CBD hair growth serum for the eyelash
  • CBD hair growth serum for the eyebrow

Dan Hodgdon is the Co-Founder and CEO of VEGAMOUR, a vegan hair wellness company that uses powerful, plant-derived actives with proven clinical and visible results. As a pioneer in the beauty industry working with renowned brands, Hodgdon quickly realized there was a need for clean, natural products that could effectively stimulate hair growth. This was the driving factor behind launching Vegamour, the world’s cleanest, most effective hair restoration formulas on the market. While having been exposed to diverse cultures when living all over the world, Hodgdon acquired a keen interest in biodiversity and would go on to spend years both researching powerful plant actives and also creating sustainable, eco-friendly supply chains for major beauty brands around the globe. Hodgdon was instrumental in establishing a Fair Trade co-op that harvested the highest quality natural actives, including the company’s staple ingredient, marula oil, while providing sustainable, eco-friendly work to over 5,000 women in southern Africa. With a belief that the healthier you are, the better you feel, Hodgdon continues to create a company based in downtown Los Angeles that obtains a mindfulness toward social impact and ethical responsibility. 

So, what is VEGAMOUR?

It’s a vegan hair wellness company that uses powerful, plant-derived actives with proven clinical and visible results, announced today that the company is the first in the industry to launch a full-line of scientifically-created CBD serums and nutraceuticals to promote healthy hair growth for the scalp, lash and brow.

This topical product line is made by decreasing the size of the CBD molecules by over 1,000 percent so that the CBD particles are able to penetrate the skin more deeply and are proven to deliver increased efficacy.

“Our research has shown that CBD has inherent, clinically-proven actives that naturally work in tandem to stimulate healthy hair growth,” said Vegamour CEO Dan Hodgdon. “There are several companies that have announced CBD-infused beauty products as a way to be part of the CBD trend, but they often aren’t sourced or manufactured correctly and in many cases, they’re incorporated into formulations which don’t allow the CBD to actually penetrate the skin and thus consumers are receiving little-to-no benefit. Our first-to-market topical line of CBD serums is designed to penetrate the skin and has proven to stimulate hair growth by increasing blood flow around the hair follicles while reducing inflammation.“

– VEGAMOUR

The company, which has always had strict ingredient guidelines and has always stayed away from the harmful chemical ingredients found in most pharmaceutical hair growth products, will be extending their CBD line from topicals to ingestibles and supplements to create a full CBD hair health line, resulting in stronger, thicker and healthier hair.  

“Our line of full-spectrum CBD hair wellness supplements work in tandem with our topical CBD serums by providing additional synergistic health benefits such as balancing the endocannabinoid system for overall peace, stress reduction and improved sleep,” adds Hodgdon.

– Dan Hodgdon

The first CBD product set to launch from Vegamour will be CBD & Biotin Vegan Hair Gummies, available in June, which are the first hair vitamins to harness the powerful CBD medicinal and therapeutic benefits along with vitamins and minerals that feed and support hair growth. The CBD serums for the scalp, brow and lash will soon follow this summer and are all available for presale now.

The scientific research that is behind the Vegamour CBD line shows that CBD reduces stress and anxiety, improves sleep quality and helps the body produce less cortisol, which is known to cause weight gain and increase hair loss. These CBD products are also known to reduce inflammation of hair follicles and increase blood circulation of the follicle, all of which promotes healthy, natural hair growth.  

All of the Vegamour products are 100% vegan, gluten-free, gelatin-free, and made in the USA.

This New Way To Use Restylane Filler Will Be The Next Big Thing

June 23, 2019

RESTYLANE LYFT FOR MIDFACE & CHEEK INJECTION VIA CANNULA  Restylane Lyft Now Joins Restylane Silk as the Only Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Approved for Use with Cannula1, 2. 

We are massive all-time fans of all things Restylane to soften lines and restore facial volume. We age. We lose volume. It’s that simple. The old expression, we need to choose between our asses or faces. I’d like to think to keep both going at full volume.

Forget the days of over-filling faces to look like puffer fish – that aesthetic is our biggest turn off and has never been something we even want to associate with. At Groomed LA, we simply want to share the best tools to make you look as awesome as you feel on the inside. We give you the best tools for inner work and the best for outer to reflect your awesomeness inside – that simple!

I have used fillers in the most delicate ways, to soften under eye circles and add some fullness in areas where the face started to thin out.

Restylane Refyne is FDA-approved for smile lines and now, Restylane® Lyft it is the first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler approved for use to restore age- related volume loss in the midface and cheek area with a blunt tip cannula.

I worked with The Master Injector, Bernice Cohen, RN, PHN ,BSN, CANS, at AVA MD, as she is the expert trainer in this and tops in the country. It’s always thrilling to work with Bernice as she is such a top level pro in the field, I always learn so much and leave with my mind blown (on top of looking excellent).

Bernice Cohen is a Registered Nurse, nurse injector and laser specialist, as well as a Public Health Nurse with a B.S. degree in Nursing. Having joined the Ava MD practice in March of 2010, she is now a Top Trainer in the US for Galderma Injectables, teaching other doctors and injectors how to use Sculptra, Restylane, Restylane Lyft and Dysport. Born in Berlin, Germany and raised in Burbank, California, Bernice worked as an international model doing runway, print and commercial modeling with Ford and Elite for 15 years before making her transition to dermatology.

Why a cannula?

The use of a cannula may be associated with less potential damage to blood vessels, and may help minimize patient bruising, help decrease swelling, and allow for minimized downtime.

Natural-looking results, restored volume and fullness to the cheeks.

Restylane® Lyft

  • Created with XpresHAn Technology™, to help smooth moderate lines and provide the right amount of support and flexibility through a range of facial expressions
  • Integrates with your skin and acts like your body’s own hyaluronic acid 
  • Gives the support you need while allowing a range of facial expressions

Restylane® Lyft is the first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler approved for use to restore age- related volume loss in the midface and cheek area with a blunt tip cannula.1,2 

What is a cannula? What are the benefits of injection with a cannula? 

A cannula is a small, thin, flexible, blunt tip needle with a small opening on the side that provides an effective means for injecting HA dermal fillers into the skin.3 

The use of a cannula may be associated with less potential damage to blood vessels, and may help minimize patient bruising, help decrease swelling, and allow for minimized downtime.4 

Bernice in action….

Precise implantation of HA fillers is important for patient safety and for achieving the best aesthetic outcome and using a cannula can result in a more precise injection as compared to a needle.

When injecting with a cannula, a single-entry point is used so the cannula can be inserted through the entire midface or cheek area.6 When using a needle, the sharp tip of the needle penetrates through the skin down to the depth in each point where the filler is injected. In contrast to this, a cannula has a blunt tip, and requires only one to two insertion points on either side of the entire injection area. 

Here’s what you can expect with Restylane Lyft for midface and cheek injection via cannula: 

Bernice made sure to enhance my natural bone structure, not change it. The goal is to leave looking the same only BETTER!

 Restored volume and fullness to the cheeks 

Natural-looking results 

 May be associated with less bruising and decreased swelling compared to injection via needle4 

 Results proven to last up to 12 months1 

Restylane Lyft is the only HA filler with three FDA-approved indications – the midface/cheek area, nasolabial folds, and back of the hands.1,2

Important Safety Information 

The Restylane family of products includes Restylane®, Restylane-L®, Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine, Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Refyne, and Restylane® Defyne

APPROVED USES 

Restylane® and RestylaneLyft® are for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane® and Restylane-L® are also indicated for injection into the lips in patients over the age of 21. 

Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine is for deep implantation into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and for cheek augmentation and for the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies in patients over the age of 21. Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine is also indicated for injection into the subcutaneous plane in the dorsal hand to correct volume deficit in patients over the age of 21. 

Restylane® Silk is for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral wrinkles in patients over the age of 21. 

Restylane® Refyne is for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, in patients over the age of 21. 

Restylane® Defyne is for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe deep facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, in patients over the age of 21. 

Are there any reasons why I should not use products within the Restylane® family? (Contraindications) 

To ensure a safe procedure, your doctor will talk to you about your medical history to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for treatment. You should not use products within the Restylane family if: 

• You have severe allergies with a history of severe reactions (anaphylaxis) 

• You are allergic to lidocaine or to any of the gram-positive bacterial proteins used to make hyaluronic acid 

• You are prone to bleeding or have been diagnosed with a bleeding disorder 

Are there other precautions that I should discuss with my doctor? 

• Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding, pregnant, or trying to become pregnant. The safety of these products for use during pregnancy, or in women who are breastfeeding, has not been studied 

Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are intended to treat facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane and Restylane- L are also intended for lip enhancement. Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine is also intended for injection in the dorsal hand to correct volume loss. Treatments in other areas of the face or body have not been evaluated in clinical studies. 

• The safety and effectiveness of Restylane® Silk for areas other than the lips and perioral area have not been evaluated in clinical studies. 

• Tell your doctor if you have any history of scarring, particularly thick and stiff scars, or any pigmentation (skin color) disorders. These side effects can occur with hyaluronic acid fillers in general. 

• Tell your doctor if you are planning other laser treatments or a chemical peel, as there is a possible risk of inflammation at the treatment site if these procedures are performed after treatment 

• Patients who experience skin injury near the site of injection with these products may be at a higher risk for side effects 

• Tell your doctor if you are on any medications to decrease your body’s immune response (immunosuppressive therapy). Using these medications may increase your risk of bruising or bleeding at the gel injection site. 

• Tell your doctor if you are using any “blood thinners” such as aspirin, warfarin, or any other medications that affect bleeding. Using these medications may increase your risk of bruising or bleeding at the gel injection site. 

• The use of these products on gel injection sites with skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infections should be postponed until healing is complete. Use of product in these areas could delay healing or make your skin problems worse. 

Tell your doctor if you have diseases, injuries, or disabilities of the hand. 

What are the possible side effects? 

The most commonly observed side effects are swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, itching at the injection site, and impaired hand function. These are typically mild in severity and typically resolve in less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 days in lips. Serious but rare side effects include delayed onset infections, recurrence of herpetic eruptions, and superficial necrosis at the injection site. 

One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, the complications can be serious, and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin. 

As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection. 

*To report a side effect with any of the Restylane products, please call Galderma Laboratories, L.P at 1- 855-425-8722. 

Flora & Bast Full Spectrum Cannabis

June 15, 2019

Cannabis is here to stay. Hooray. I recently sat down with Derek Chase of FLORA & BAST to discuss this stunning line he’s created (more on that on the Groomed LA Podcast soon!! ) If you’ve been awake and in the beauty / wellness scene then you know cannabis can be found in just about every aspect of self-care products, fitting seamlessly into our lifestyles and making all things, well, way better.

Aging is simply a fact of modern living – and we are aging even faster now, as we are in a race to catch up to the stress put upon us. Cannabis exerts profound adaptogenic effects by modulating the endocannabinoid system, resulting in a return to equilibrium where the body can heal itself naturally. In other words, thwarting cellular breakdown.

FULL-SPECTRUM – What’s is all about?

Flora & Bast cannabis extracts are classified as “full-spectrum”.

Let’s break that down: It means the formulas mirror the composition of the plants from which they were derived, optimizing your body’s ability to utilize them and in turn, maximizing their results.

The serum below is blowing all of our minds. My best friend’s hormonal acne cleared up in days. The sleep tincture is now by my bed and I use it to set the pace of my evening and start preparing for sleep as soon as the sun sets.

AGE ADAPTING FACIAL SERUM – The foundation for your entire skincare routine. In balancing your Endocannabinoid System, skin is brought to a state of equilibrium where it can repair itself naturally, resulting in:

– Reduced acne/breakouts and blemishes

– Reduced redness and puffiness

– Enhanced firmness and elasticity

AGE ADAPTING SLEEP TINCTURE – Recovery is the key to healthy mind, body and skin. The sleep tincture works by regulating sleep-wake cycles, called circadian rhythms. When taken 30 minutes before intended time to bed, users find that they:

– Fall asleep with greater consistency and ease

– Stay asleep longer

– Wake up more refreshed, both physically and mentally.

*Best results are achieved when items are used together.

At FLORA + BAST our philosophy is simple – procure the best ingredients, process them minimally, and preserve them naturally. Our formulas are organic, food-grade, and contain only three ingredients. We exclude water, surfactants and preservatives that can cause harm to human health, leaving only what is necessary and kind to humans. All products are tested for purity, potency, safety and efficacy by a third party analytical lab.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CBD PRODUCTS WITH DEREK CHASE

I pulled this amazing Q & A with Derek Chase from Jamie Makeup (THANK YOU!!) It’s concise and perfect.

Difference between CBD and THC? – Almost Everyone

CBD and THC are both cannabinoids, which are lipids that protect the plant from pesky pests trying to get a bit of bud in their diet.  While CBD and THC are both psychoactive when ingested, CBD produces a non-inebriating state of mind, while THC is responsible for the euphoric high associated with marijuana.  Both have medical and wellness applications, though CBD is the only cannabinoid available over-the-counter at significant levels (remember the plants with > 0.3% THC are considered marijuana and therefore only sold through dispensaries in states with legal marijuana laws).

How does CBD work on lines and aging? – @AgeofFabulous

Derek Chase, Flora + Bast Founder

CBD has profound metabolic effects, slowing the rate of biological aging by balancing the skin’s endocannabinoid tone, preventing aging/lines and wrinkles from forming.  CBD also helps increase the rate at which our skin cells turn over, and upregulates apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in tissue that is compromised or unhealthy,  resulting in the reduction of everything from lines and wrinkles, to dark spots to saggy skin.

I have dry skin but also awful hormonal acne that just started in my 30s! Would CBD work? – @whitney.w.shaw

YAS! One of the biggest issues with acne products on the market today is that they are not only drying but also inflammatory.  Adding a CBD-rich product to your routine will help to balance oil production, in addition to reducing inflammation (which is the underlying cause of acne, be it adolescent or adult onset).  For best results, only use products containing salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide as spot treatments or on full face for an acute period of time (1-3 days max).  Chronic use of these actives will result in continued breakouts over time.

How do you know what dose of CBD should be in products to get the maximum benefits? – @kathp227

There is very little reliable data on dosing for CBD, especially topically speaking.  As such we led small scale consumer studies to understand where the best results were achieved, which landed us at 1% potency for our serum, and 20mg per dose (1mL, which is one full pipette) on our tincture.

When do I apply the CBD oil in my evening routine? Other lotions and serums first or the oil first? – LSG

Oil first, everything else after! Since the fatty acids in our oil is primarily that of the small molecule variety, it will absorb quickly (max 30 seconds).  If applied on top, it may be more difficult for oil to absorb.

Does it come with a regimen and will it help to remove acne scars and dark pigmentation? – @malwina.07

Our recommended regimen, both day and night, in chronological order:

  1. Wash with a gentle, low surfactant cleanser (you can tell the level of surfactant by the amount of foam it produces); oil cleansers are preferred.
  2. Apply AGE ADAPTING FACIAL SERUM, pressing and or massaging into face for 30 seconds.
  3. Depending on your skins needs, add all other products over top.  We believe in a water-free routine, with more aggressive products being reserved for nighttime use only (retinols, acids, vitamin Cs, etc…).

Is the Age Adapting Serum a day and night time usage? Can I use it with a Vitamin C serum? – @JulieG

BOTH! Safe to use with ANY product, as the cannabinoids and terpenes present in the serum are non-irritating or interactive as it pertains to other facial care ingredients.  In addition to the serum not being conflicting, it will also help reduce the irritation that can be caused by a vitamin C product.

Does it calm rosacea? – @kelseywoods79

Anecdotally speaking, YAS! There still needs to be testing done on the effects of CBD on these types of dermatological disorders, but you are a prime candidate for a CBD-rich product. 

Does it all smell like weed? lol – @SwitStacie

Our serum has a relatively mild cannabis scent that dissipates within 2-3 minutes, depending on how much you apply.  Our tincture has a more distinct cannabis aroma given the potency and variety of cannabis we have selected for this product.

Can I use this with retinol? – @Marie

YAS!  Like the vitamin C question, products that are likely to produce irritation and redness are perfect candidates to apply on top of our serum.  Less irritation means more applications and more results from your retinoids!  We love retinoids and will be launching into the ingredient in 2020.

Will you have better dreams with it? – @SwitStacie

There is a lot of data out there that shows a whole host of changes in sleep – lucid dreaming has been reported, as well as a reduction in dreams – bottom line is that it all depends on the needs of the individual, as CBD is an adaptogen and produces results depending on the needs of the individual.  We have done small scale consumer studies which show variations in both REM sleep (when you dream) and deep sleep, so changes in dreaming is to be expected but not necessarily determined prior to testing.

Do you grow your own plants to create the product? – @ljkirven

We partner with 3 independent farms in OR, CO and VT. 



The Star Science

May 29, 2019

Exciting! I finally found out the time of my birth and – aloha – my long overdue horoscope readings! Rob Perri of The Star Science dove right on in for me, and welp, now I know what a reading feels like. Intense! I’ve known Rob for years but it wasn’t until I listened to my friends’ newish podcast, The Opposite Sex Show, that I finally got a good taste of what his work is all about. I’ve been a fan of Rob’s keen eye for film photography for a long time and had a sense that his intuitive tuning in to both the seen and unseen would serve his chart reading with serious aplomb.

And was I right. I sent over my date/time of birth, and within a few days he texted “are you ready?” (Sorta, no, ok, shit, no, YES!)

What I love about Rob is his firm grasp on the ground. He is rooted in reality, the here and now, and is incredibly articulate communicating this rootedness. What do I mean? I mean his reading is not lofty and ethereal. It’s very much grounded in the present – and he does a great job dot-connecting the intricacies of your houses, orbits and all that other astrology tech to make sense of this here and now. He’s not reading to predict. He’s reading to facilitate understanding of why we are where we are and to elucidate potential predisposed paths and personal land-mines. What I learned is how deeply engrained potential areas of missteps are for me. We made sense of my loops, trips and the ways I seem to fall off course. From there, we forged a clearer direction on how to possibly course-correct when I sense these hiccups erupting.

Rob is so straight forward and I love nothing short of this approach. He also explained very thoroughly the meaning of all the language of astrology. For example – what is means when planets are squaring off, what houses mean and hold, and all the talk of rising signs, etc. It was a lot to absorb and I was furiously writing notes.

An astrology reading can assist you in many ways. It can help to illuminate your personal energetic signature and align you with your life’s purpose. It can also give specific timelines of the changing energetic tides and how those might affect your personal birth chart. In addition, a Synastry reading can offer vital information into how your chart interacts with that of another giving you valuable insight into the nature of relationships. Readings are offered on a sliding scale between $80-$250 depending on length and depth.

– Rob Perri, The Star Science

Readings run around an hour or so and he gets right into it during the call. And the sliding scale is incredible. He really impressed upon me that this work is his way of doing service. It feels like he is just as excited about what he is discovering as you will inevitably be!

Please check out this podcast to hear more from him directly, or just take the leap and book a sesh!
