EOS Brings The Fun Back To Lip Balm

For years, it was just the tube. Lip balm was boring, generic, and just a necessity of life for those with chapped lips. Then, seven years ago, EOS Lip Balm burst upon the scene, taking the beauty industry by storm. Aware that women wanted something different, less unisex and just for them, EOS researched the most common complaints about standard tubes of lip balm. Women wanted something that wouldn’t get lost in their purses. Pots of lip balm were an option, but using fingers to apply it was messy and seemed unhygienic. From these complaints, the sphere was born.

Not wanting to merely come up with a beauty fad, EOS (https://evolutionofsmooth.ca/) focused on all five senses when designing their lip balm. From pleasing colors and textures, to delightful scents and flavors, the company aimed to make using lip balm a pleasurable experience, rather than just a way to avoid chapped lips. With this in mind, the company chose a tagline, “The lip balm that makes you smile.”

Wanting to remain in a competitive price range, EOS lip balm chose organic ingredients to appeal to today’s more health and environment conscience woman. The resulting product was an immediate hit with women young and old, though it wasn’t an easy sell to stores initially. Most major chains felt the product was too wacky, but a female buyer at Walgreen’s loved the spheres and took a chance on EOS. The launch was a success and Well, Walmart, Target and Amazon also followed suit and stocked EOS Lip Balm. Creating their own production facility that is almost entirely automated, EOS has successfully kept up with the demand for their product, ushering in a world where, in terms of lip balm, the tube is no longer the only option.

Comparative Law And Its Adoption To Support The Constitutional Development Process

If there are perfect laws designed to make things to work out, then the society will find it easy to tackle even the most complex problems.

Ensuring laws answer the problems of a community takes a lot of effort and research and many experts today use comparative law to speed up the process. In comparative law, experts of law visit different jurisdictions, from which they are able to compare and review the laws they use to pick the most important parts of these laws for integration into the constitution. Comparative law comes with many benefits among them being quality since the laws present are definite and designed to cater for the needs of the community.  Source works.bepress.com.

OSI Group Is A Well Grounded Organization

OSI Group is a major international food distributor that has built its business on a solid principal. The company began with the vision of a German immigrant.

It opened as a meat market in 1909. The company later became known as Otto and Sons. Otto and Sons developed a reputation for providing a great product for a fair price. Eventually they caught the eye of McDonald’s CEO Ray Kroc. Ray Kroc was expanding his empire in the mid-1950s. He planned to open a restaurant in Des Plaines, Illinois. Kroc sought out the services of Otto and Sons to provide a very important element to his business.

Otto and Sons lived up to the demanding challenge that McDonald’s placed upon them. Their business savvy and innovations eventually made them the exclusive supplier of meat to the McDonald’s organization. Creations such as the patty cutting machine were simple, yet highly effective for the business relationship between the two organizations. The machine allowed Otto and Sons to deliver a product that was ready to use. It was something no other meat supplier to McDonald’s had thought to do.

He also talks about various fashion designers and the newfound ways to create something unique out of the most unorthodox supplies such as inner tubes of bicycles or recycled radiator copper. Technological and industrial supplies come together with fashion to create a new-age synthesis that is the future of both fields. An amazing creation is clothing that creates kinetic energy through movement and through that energy one could charge a watch, mp3 or another small gadget. This extremely recent concept has come from letting one’s imagination loose, unrestricted from the conventional notions of what fashion and technology are like.

 

 

Chris Burch shows a strong fascination of this futuristic blend of fashion and technology and understandably so for he has a background in both fashion and technology. Other fields he has an interest in are real estate, home design, décor, stationary and much more. He is a serial entrepreneur and the founder of Burch’s Creative Capital – a company that encases a few of Chris Burch’s most popular brand names.
