Sonic cleansing meets smart technology for total skin transformation with the new Smart Profile from Clarisonic. As a pioneer in sonic cleansing and transformative skincare, Clarisonic reveals their biggest innovation yet: the most advanced and intuitive cleansing device to ever touch skin using Smart Microchip-technology in both the device and brush heads – automatically adjusting timing and power for a customized head and body cleanse at the push of a button. This technology also allows the device to track brush head usage and prompt users when it is time to change their brush head. Only Clarisonic devices utilise a patented oscillation movement that moves the brush head back and forth between 200-300 times a second. This, coupled with Clarisonic’s fluid forces technique, provides a gentle and effective cleanse.

The benefits of this next generation device for consumers are described simply as: Smarter, Easier & More Powerful.

The Smarter involves the Smart brush heads have a Smart Microchip pre-programmed to send information to the device on how to operate for the area you want to cleanse–automatically adjusting speed, frequency and cleansing time. It also enables the brush heads to track minutes of use in order to alert the user when the brush head has reached its recommended limit and needs replacement. Clarisonic brush heads are recommended to be changed after 3 months of twice daily use.

The  Smart Profile has been re-designed with a new look and feel to visually indicate speed, operating mode, battery- life and when it’s time to replace the brush head. Now people can care for both face and body in one easy-to-use Smart Profile device. The Turbo function makes the Smart Profile more powerful as it allows the user to temporarily increase the power of the device from any speed to obtain a more targeted cleanse at any point throughout the cleansing cycle. Battery life has also been improved.


The Smart Profile from Clarisonic (RRP $295) is now available at leading department stores and online at 



Coconut oil has been hailed as a natural miracle product, and you’ll find the best quality coco in Dr Bronner’s new Fair Trade & Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. Dr Bronner’s is North America’s best-selling natural soap brand, loved by celebrities including Kate Hudson and Bobbi Brown. Its organic rich lather and non-drying formulas are enriched with Virgin Coconut Oil, so it was only natural for Dr Bronner’s to produce the oil as a stand-alone product.

The Virgin Coconut Oil is unrefined and expeller-pressed from the fresh, carefully dried coconut kernel. Dr Bronner’s offers it in two varieties: ‘white kernel’ and ‘whole kernel’. Whole kernel oil is more nutritious and has slightly nuttier flavour, where white kernel oil provides a more familiar choice to consumers familiar with this grade. Not only does coconut oil offer a range of nutritional benefits and has multiple uses in the kitchen, but it also multi-tasks as a do-it-all beauty product.

The company established Serendipol in Sri Lanka, which now employs more than 250 staff and sources oil from over 750 farmers. Fair Trade products rightly fetch a premium price, and these proceeds are put towards a range of community development projects, including connecting remote villages to the power grid and supporting regional medical clinics with critical equipment.

Dr Bronner’s Fair Trade & Organic Virgin Coconut Oil retails for $19.60 (414mL). To locate your nearest stockist or to purchase online, please visit
