18.21 Man Made – 18.21 Man Made is a Texas based business, owned and operated by Angel del Solar, Aston LaFon and David del Solar. They are three hardworking gents that share a passion for making premium, uncommon goods that gentlemen take pride in owning. Along their journey they noticed that the landscape of men’s grooming goods had become somewhat mundane and all shared similar characteristics. They became inspired by the bootlegging of the American prohibition and began to bootleg their own custom grooming mixtures. 18.21 Man Made namesake is an homage to the 18th amendment which, started the prohibition and was later repealed by the 21st amendment. The approach is to always provide uncommon goods which, feel uniquely American in nature and provide a nostalgic yet modern grooming experience. And, they meticulously form this experience through the use of exceptional materials, choice ingredients and the custom crafted aroma of sweet tobacco. By supporting professionals with a complete strategy to Spoil Him, they can elevate the value of the Men’s grooming service and establish a movement centered upon the finest masculine grooming experience.

MasqueBAR – at Look Beauty, they are your eyes on the world. They believe that there are beauty breakthroughs out there if you look hard enough to find them. And that’s what they do at Look Beauty. Their team travels across Asia, Europe and the Americas to search out factories capable of developing unique products. The mission is to take you beyond what you will find today in stores and spas.
They are determined to seek out unique products that will make a difference in your beauty regimen. One example of Look Beauty’s go-beyond-the-expected philosophy is their line of do it yourself masques. Developed in Korea, these sheet masques are breakthroughs because the serum or essences that are made to treat the skin are either soaked or brushed onto a thin cotton or fiber sheet, that is pre-cut to match the contour of your face. They are also designed with holes to protect your eyes, lips and nostrils.
Applied professionally by a beautician, this kind of treatment can cost many times what Look Beauty lets you do at home, for so much less. If there’s a safe, effective and affordable beauty product or treatment that’s helping women to look their best, the ‘beauty explorers’ at Look Beauty are determined to find it and bring it to you.

nügg Beauty – cute but Serious! nügg’s mission is to deliver top quality, simple yet powerful, natural & clean skin treatments at pocket-friendly prices and in pocket-friendly packaging. Our award- winning nüggets of goodness are designed to make you feel great in your skin – not only by addressing specific skin issues but also by making skin feel soft, smooth and silky to the touch! They believe in a gentle and long-term approach to skincare that helps enhance and protect the skin barrier function.
Because, after all, skin is meant to form a barrier to keep irritants out and moisture in, so the ultimate goal of skin treatments should be to make that barrier as strong and healthy as possible. They are committed to clear standards for natural-ness and to avoid “no go” ingredients in their products. They follow the Natural Product Association list to determine what they consider natural. They formulate all of their products without petrochemicals, parabens, sulfates, synthetic colors and synthetic fragrances. Where they can, they also forego preservatives by formulating products without water.
The lip sugar scrub, peel-off masks and SKIN FIZZ are their first steps in that direction with more to come. The packaging is pocket-friendly and minimized for environmental purposes, e.g., the amount of packaging used for 5 x 10ml single serve face mask pods is less than that of many 50ml tubes or jars with all components and outer packaging involved. You can recycle their pods, cards, and cardboard boxes. However, when it comes to packaging, there is still lots of room to improve for the benefit of our planet and that is a big focus for nügg in the year to come! The collection is registered with the EU cosmetic regulatory body which has stringent ingredient guidelines concerning allowable ingredients and chemicals (for example, there are around 1300 ingredients banned from use in cosmetics in the EU and only 11 banned in the US).
