Beauty Insurance – When people think of the beauty industry, they think about glitz and glam. But there is so much more in this diverse industry. Beauticians dedicate their careers to make people feel good about their looks and appearances. Should you not do the same for your beauty business?  

Whether you are working in your salon or visiting a customer’s house to give them a service, you and your employees might be exposed to various risks. So, before you give your client a gorgeous haircut, get yourself beauty insurance. 

What is beauty insurance?

Beauty insurance covers your business and the employees during their work. It includes aspects of liability insurance related to treatments that you provide. It also covers your equipment like UV lamps, dryers, creams, oils, and other elements of your business.   

Why is beauty insurance necessary?  

When you have beauty insurance, you can stop worrying about the “what-ifs” and entirely focus on your work. Moreover, without beauty coverage, there is a high chance of losing your hard-earned business, reputation, and earnings.

The Retail Reboot For Re-Opening Series: Part One

As you prepare to re-open your salon or spa, it’s important to take some time to rethink your retail approach. While we have all been hyper focused on safety, we  will need to make some changes to the way we approach our retail sales. Many businesses have had great success with online or curbside pick up of retail products, but there is a safe and sane way to include retail sales in your re-opening plans.

1. Retail Displays

Adopt the philosophy of “less is more” when it comes to your facility’s retail displays. Simple steps you can do to increase the safety and reduce contact in the retail area include:

  • Removing all testers, and safely disposing of them.
  • If you have makeup stations, sanitize and store away. It may be a long time before tester stations are safe for use. Consider removing and disposing of any opened containers, as well.
  • Remove all props in the retail area. Sanitize those can be used again and store for later.
  • Remove artificial plants, greenery, or other unnecessary decorations in the retail area. While they look pretty, it’s just more surface area to hold germs and have to clean.
  • If you have display holders that hold multiple products in a single unit, sanitize them and store away. It is better to have fewer surfaces and contact points to clean and sanitize each day.
  • Place any shelf talkers in glass or plastic frames that can be sanitized daily or more often.
  • Remove any testers or product displays located in guest bathrooms or treatment rooms.

M.A.D. Skincare PRO introduces Four products to the market

M.A.D Skincare PRO has added four new products to their product lineup. We are happy to introduce them to you below!

Mandelic Peel 25% with CBD

Fundamental Peel Tackling Hyperpigmentation, Acne and Anti-Aging  

M.A.D. SkincarePRO brings you M.A.D’s Mandelic Peel 25% with CBD, the first Mandelic Peel in the industry containing Cannabinoids (non-THC CBD). This unique AHA peel addresses aging, discoloration and acne concerns while delivering significant skin calming, anti-inflammatory and soothing properties.

Mandelic Acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and a go-to ingredient when combatting anti-aging, is derived from bitter almonds but gentler. By assisting in the removal of dead skin cells, Mandelic Acid works to eliminate dull complexions and fine lines by accelerating cell turnover.  CBD assists cell reaction from releasing pro-inflammatory substances. Mandelic Acid works to strengthen collagen for firmer looking skin.

Packed with antibacterial properties, Mandelic Acid is extremely beneficial in treating acne. Acting as a regulator, it aids in normalizing sebum production, decreasing breakouts. It has been known to show benefits when treating those suffering with cystic acne.  CBD’s substantial skin-calming properties relieve inflammation caused by acne and minimize concerns associated with sensitive skin and skin that is easily reactive.

Also known for its anti-discoloration properties, Mandelic Acid helps in the treatment of Melasma, a common skin condition where a brown or greyish pigmentation develops on the face. Mandelic acid can reduce Melasma resulting in a more even complexion.

Wheatgrass Recovery Mask with CBD

M.A.D. SkincarePRO launches Wheatgrass Recovery Mask with CBD, a combination of Wheatgrass, Irish Moss, Watercress and Cannabinoids (non-THC CBD), active ingredients rich in anti-aging, healing, anti-bacterial and detoxifying attributes, delivering healthier, younger, more nourished looking skin.   

Wheatgrass, a natural detoxifier and healer, is a superior form of chlorophyll including 98 of the 102 earth elements incorporating the essential elements Phosphorus, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium and Potassium. In addition, Wheatgrass contains amino acids, enzymes and antioxidants, Vitamins A, C and B; and is remarkably high in Vitamin K. Combined with Watercress, this powerhouse combination prevents free radical damage helping slow the aging process as well as aiding in the prevention of collagen breakdown and increasing collagen production for healthier, radiant, more elastic skin.

Irish Moss presents anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, with the combination of Wheatgrass’s healing agents and CBD’s substantial skin-calming properties, is ideal for dry skin and skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. The masks antiseptic properties hinder acne breakouts and diminishes blemishes. CBD helps with the inflammation caused by acne and minimize concerns associated with sensitive skin and skin that is easily reactive.

Breakout Control Charcoal Peel Off Mask

M.A.D. SkincarePRO brings you Breakout Control Charcoal Peel Off Mask, packed with a superstar ingredient in skin care: charcoal.  Combined with Willow Bark Extract and Alp Sebum in a peel-off mask leaves skin clean, fresh and radiant! 

Charcoal is a much-loved, renowned ingredient in the beauty industry due to its ability to draw out toxins, dirt, and grime which can cause dull complexion, acne and blackheads. Alp Sebum, an anti-inflammatory, calms the skin and reduces the size and appearance of pores while Willow Bark Extract helps decongest skin. Toxins stick to the mask, and are pulled out when mask is peeled off, purifying and brightening skin.

A trifecta of purifying and anti-inflammatory ingredients in a peel off format that adheres to the skin, makes this an excellent mask for treating and preventing acne breakouts.  Charcoal’s purifying actives combined with Willow Bark Extract and Alp Sebum to decrease sebum production, reduce blemishes, blackheads and inflammation help say goodbye to breakouts.

Four Fruit Enzyme Exfoliating Mask with Pumice

M.A.D. SkincarePRO launches Four Fruit Enzyme Exfoliating Mask with Pumice, a combination of Pineapple, Blueberry, Cherry, Papaya and Pumice for the ultimate in increasing cell turnover, removing dull dead skin cells, reducing the appearance of discoloration and tackling anti-aging for younger-looking, smoother, softer skin.

The Four Fruit Enzyme Mask with Pumice contains over fifty minerals nourishing and feeding the skin and is less irritating than glycolic. Pumice gently etches the skin to improve enzyme effectiveness and exfoliation.

The perfect addition to your back bar and professional treatments, the fortifying Four Fruit Enzyme Mask with Pumice offers an alternative for clients who may be sensitive to alpha-hydroxy acids.
