We selected these enticing products from an extensive range of bath & body, cosmetics, fragrances, beauty accessories and more. THE LATEST INNOVATIONS IN BEAUTY, PERSONAL-CARE AND WELLNESS products lured beauty buyers and retailers to the recent EX���TRACTS show��� one of the 10 divisions presented at the New York International Gift Fair. The winter 2013 edition of EX���TRACTS was held Jan. 27 through 30 at New York City���s bustling Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The show���which spotlighted the latest products and trends in perfumes and fragrances���also boasted a stellar range of cosmetics, skin care, and bath & body products. As always, an extensive collection of candles was part of the mix. Captivating packaging and alluring scents certainly tantalized show attendees. Among some of the standout debuts were a few ���fragrance jewelry��� collections, specifically Lisa Hoffman Beauty���s stylish necklaces, earrings and pendants that emit scent from dangling charms. Soap Baubles also unveiled its glycerin soaps, which were designed to resemble a string of semiprecious stones. Strung on silk, the soap gems debut in the form of fun bracelets and necklaces, which can be worn in the bath or displayed as a decorative soap on a rope. As for trends, a current focus on wellness is still driving the long popular food and flavor themes���more specifically to healthy food themes. ���Healthy ingredients and flavors are showing up in personal care, providing skin benefits as well as fragrance character,��� says Pam Helms, chief innovation officer, The Caldrea Co. ���Teas [in] green, white and black varieties [have] a long history of benefits and ritual. [They���re] having a resurgence in personal care. Nut oils and nut milks, especially almond, are quite popular as well. Though not technically a nut, coconut has a nice health halo related to hydration plus a comforting scent that updates vanilla. Rediscovered beauty remedies from honey, rice and chia are naturally caring and important right now.��� Kicking things up a notch was FarmHouse Fresh���s Bourbon Bubbler and Watermelon Basil Vodkatini scrubs. ���We use many ingredients from farms in the United States, including organic pumpkin puree from Oregon and Kentucky-made whiskey,��� adds Shannon McLinden, CEO of FarmHouse Fresh. 6 May 2013 | Image and logo courtesy of EX���TRACTS by Regina Molaro
