The upcoming event combines Jen Novakovich’s green beauty education platform the Eco Well (which includes a regular pod cast) with her Eco Market events programing. “The Eco Market is dedicated to supporting, uplifting and showcasing Canadian green innovation, entrepreneurship, and community action,” according to the Market’s online about page.
In the run up to the March Green Beauty Night event, it’s business as usual for Novakovich and the Eco Well Podcast.
Hear from Cosmetics Design
On Tuesday, Novakovich went live with her most recent interview with Cosmetics Design editor Deanna Utroske.
Together, Novakovich and Utroske look back at sustainably trends and news from 2018 and forward at the future of green beauty, exploring several of Cosmetics Design’s predictions for the year ahead. (Watch the Cosmetics Design 2019 trends prediction video here.)
In her post introducing the January 15th episode of the Eco Well Podcast, Novakovich writes, “Since we’re now fresh into the new year, I thought it would be timely to do a trends review, and I couldn’t think of a better person to take us through the topic,” noting that there is also “advice for new beauty brands entering the industry this year, and lots more,” in the podcast, and that the “overall take home from the conversation [is that] green beauty is here to stay.” Listen here to Cosmetics Design on this week’s Eco Well podcast.
Connect with consumers
As Cosmetics Design noted in an earlier item about Novakovich’s work: “Consumers today are enchanted with green beauty, clean beauty, and everything in between. Still, there’s a lot to be done in the way of consumer education when it comes to sustainable cosmetics, personal care, and fragrance products. Ventures like The Eco Well…are stepping up to fill the gap.”
Filling the gap between concerned consumers and concerned chemists is what Green Beauty Night is all about. The event is set to take place at the Social Innovation Centre Spadina in Toronto, and run from 6:00pm to 9:00pm on March 23rd.
At 7:00pm Novakovich will moderate a panel discussion among chemist and indie beauty brand founder Kenna Whitnel of Altilis Beauty, Christian Euler from personal care ingredient maker Phycus Bio, Dayna Stein from the package-free retail concept shop Bare Market, and Jenise Lee from CertClean.
Before and after the panel, attendees will have a change to shop, network with the experts, and discover research by local scientists in a poster presentation.
