Page 6 LUX 2022 Health Beauty & Wellness Awards Mar22786 Everyone wants to look their best for a special event, and the use of makeup is one way of fulfilling this goal. Indeed, it is an incredibly powerful tool that can instil confidence and enhance natural beauty – or, as is the case with special effects and avant-garde makeup, complete an entire transformation. Faces By Fiona is an award-winning beauty company that supplies makeup and hair artistry for such events, with its portfolio including special occasion, photoshoots, video shoots, fashion shows, weddings, and special effects transformations. Additionally, the company utilises a private line of beauty essentials from Beluxxia Beauty such as luxury false lashes, bridal hair accessories, hair extensions, and soon to be cosmetics for event touch up needs. From clean and natural to high-glamour, Faces By Fiona’s skilled beauty team is capable of creating a range of desirable results. Henceforth, over the course of a decade in the industry, Faces by Fiona has worked with over 1,500 clients, leaving many in awe of the magical results that Fiona or her team have created. Boasting five-star ratings on Google Reviews, Facebook, Thumbtack, and the prestigious wedding planning site, The Knot, customers compliment the service that they have received, and the professionalism displayed by the team. Ash C. testifies, ‘I was pretty stressed in my search for a team to take care of my wedding hair and makeup, as well as my wedding party. Of course, this has so much value and impact on not only the day of but all of the wedding photos and memories you keep forever. If you’re searching for someone who listens, is very attentive, absolutely talented Faces By Fiona Best Beauty & Glamour Make-Up Artistry Team - North Texas Faces By Fiona is a premium makeup artistry and hair design service stemming from Texas. From weddings to quinceañeras, and proms to special events, Faces By Fiona provides complete beauty transformations, which clients have described as stunning, long-lasting, and perfection. Page 7 LUX 2022 Health Beauty & Wellness Awards Jan22124 and will without a doubt leave you 110% satisfied- this is your girl. Trust me!’ This comment is, of course, referring to Fiona Taylor, a veteran makeup artist and the founder of Faces By Fiona. Thanks to her experience within the modelling industry, Fiona developed a deep understanding of and, subsequently, a passion for behindthe-scenes beauty professions and applied creativity. She saw first hand just how impactful appearance can be. Henceforth, Fiona enrolled in fashion design course at the Miami International University of Art and Design, where she further honed her skills surrounding behind-the-scenes work. It was through her partnerships with leading brands like MAC Cosmetics, Sephora, The Body Shop, and The Red Door Spa, that Fiona harnessed her makeup prowess. Consequently, she has built an impressive range of skills that have only been enhanced by over ten years in the business. Such skills, including working in fast-paced environments, professionalism, and design, have served as a platform for Fiona to acquire an understanding of theme, mood, and facial anatomy and implement them throughout her designs to craft looks that are cohesive with clients’ tastes. Client-centricity is an element that is infused within the company’s structure, from the administrative team to the beauty team. ‘I select beauty artists who are aligned with the company core values and have 3 years of professional working experience and able to execute a range in technical ability,’ Fiona informs. In essence, the standards are exceptionally high, ensuring that each customer receives the best possible reception and transformation. Moreover, members of the beauty team are inducted into year-round training, where, under Fiona’s guidance, they are encouraged to upskill and develop as artists. Furthermore, Faces By Fiona prides itself on being inclusive. Growing up in Kansas City, Missouri, Fiona experienced rejection by beauty industry professionals due to a lack of skills surrounding her skin tone and hair type – a problem that is incredibly prevalent to this day. As such, Fiona has grown her business to be as inclusive as possible, taking it upon herself to learn how to cater to different races and identities. Her beauty team is held to this standard. Fiona exclaims, ‘I would never want anyone to feel alienated by the features that make them uniquely beautiful! Time after time we receive clients who appreciate our range of expertise as many of them come to us having lived through the same experiences of being treated differently and not given the proper service they deserve!’ Everyone is welcome at Faces By Fiona, which, in an industry that is prone to discrimination, is a standout quality. In turn, the company has numerous loyal clients, and has cultivated an abundance of success. Faces By Fiona’s future is set to be fruitful, however, Fiona herself has multiple plans in the works. Her beauty essentials brand, Beluxxia Beauty, is set to expand, with plans for a new range of cosmetics that are suitable for touch ups. Further, Fiona is set to release her eBook that will serve as a guide for brides during their makeup artist search and experience. Throughout 2022, her busy schedule will include the continuation of her position as a Professional Advisory Committee Member for a local makeup school, L Makeup Institute.

Page 8 LUX 2022 Health Beauty & Wellness Awards Mar22208 With the motto of ‘pure luxury for your skin’ infusing every element of this business, it is easy to see what has made Portia M such a favourite for its clients. Nominally, this business serves its market segment with the best of the best when it comes to skincare products, ensuring its customers have access to a wide array of different solutions that will allow skin of all different types and combinations to be taken care of effectively. Portia M’s range boasts a little something for everyone, in short, allowing even those with the pickiest skin to build a skincare regimen that will suit them. Portia M Skin Solutions Most Innovative Organic Skincare Brand - South Africa In today’s world, the corporate entities that make up the international business community must be more aware than ever of the social, environmental, and moral responsibility they hold. Portia M Skin Solutions is one of the companies at the forefront of this movement, a skincare company that is creating the best, most socially uplifting skincare products; critically, it is a business emboldened by its own in-house non-profit, one that fosters the betterment of the communities from which it sources its ingredients. Page 9 LUX 2022 Health Beauty & Wellness Awards Jan22124 A private, black owned, and incredibly dedicated company, Portia M has been working hard since its inception to make itself a front-runner in modern personal care. Fundamentally, it found its beginnings in 2011 as a Centurion based company with a proud South African pedigree and a Level 1 BBBEE contribution status that it maintains to this day, all of which it wears on its sleeve as part of its brand identity. All its products are also made to fit an incredible level of quality that it will never take chances on, something that it is happy to say has earned its manufacturer the SABS ISO 9001:2015 certificate for quality management, and that a customer can view for themselves in its quality policy documentation. Essentially, this contributes to its vision by allowing it to continuously push the envelope in skincare whilst keeping everything safe, reliable, and sophisticated. In an industry that changes so often and in line with the myriad of worldwide innovations that come down the pipeline daily, Portia M has committed itself to only incorporating the best and boldest of these into itself; thus, it remains competitive as well as maintaining its high level of scrutiny. Having become one of the leading skincare and cosmetics brands in Africa – and, indeed, the world at large – for its leading cosmetic and personal care products, it takes pride in supporting local suppliers by sourcing its ingredients from its surrounding region. Therefore, as well as a commitment to its clients, it also shows a deep understanding of social corporate responsibility and the importance of giving back to one’s local infrastructure. After all, in this case as with many others, a rising tide does indeed lift all ships. Serving its customers with quality, transparency, integrity, and a dedication to responsibility in both its local area and further afield, it has become not just a favourite for its outstanding product lines, but also for the attitude with which it serves its customers. Above all else, it promises to go above and beyond to ensure that they and their skin are cared for. With its friendly, knowledgeable, and highly professional staff, it can answer any questions, comments, or concerns that the client might have regarding its products, ingredients, or manufacturing process, always happy to assuage any doubts or point them in the right direction. Portia M, therefore, can provide a tour de force of everything and anything one might need to get hold of in terms of skincare products. Its baby product range is gentle to newborn skin, lacking harsh chemicals and fragrances and instead containing all organic products that will encourage healthy growth and development. For the adults seeking something to refresh, rejuvenate, and revitalise, its full ranges of different scents and collections promise to provide something new and different that a client can fall in love with. As an example, it has worked hard to develop a pomegranate infused range that is enriched with vitamins that rejuvenate and firm up the skin, giving it a new lease of life and youthful glow that will let a client approach their daily lives with a renewed level of confidence. From body lotion to anti-aging cream, toner, face wash, day creams for oily and standard skin, intensive serum, body wash, lotion, and butter, this full compliment of offerings allows every element of a skincare routine to be taken care of in the same handy collection. This is mirrored in its Full Marula range, its Men’s Range, and more, including a facial skin range that is purely focusing on the exfoliation, rehydration, and renewing of the face. Nominally, Portia M understands the stressors of everyday life and the impacts this can have on the skin; from lack of sleep to harsh fumes or challenging environments, the modern person can encounter all sorts of conditions that make skincare difficult, and this is something it wishes to help with. Therefore, its skincare products – again with all organic ingredients – promise to help skin feel light and bouncy all over again. It has also grown to include hand sanitizer in its product range, as an important part of good skincare is good hygiene, and with the pandemic still being a huge going concern for the world in the macro scale, constantly keeping one’s hands clean is an imperative. Therefore, it has developed a reputation for looking out for its customers throughout all the trials and tumults that the world might throw at them, pulling through the pandemic itself with continuous hard work and a steadfast commitment to keeping its products reliably great. Thus, its growth has been due to cultivating trust amongst its clients, something that has only been emboldened by its hard work in harnessing the inherent effectiveness of African indigenous oils and organic ingredients for cosmetic use, putting each of these elements with others that will allow them to work in the best way possible. Harvesting these indigenous oils with an environmentally conscious mindset, a social aim of uplifting the communities around where they are grown, and a moral goal of the uplifting and empowerment of young people in Africa, the business has secured itself as a cornerstone element of many rural areas. Going forward, it will be continuing to achieve this through its Portia M Foundation, a non-profit actively focusing on fostering entrepreneurship, social responsibility, youth development, and mentorship schemes for women and young people.

Page 10 LUX 2022 Health Beauty & Wellness Awards Mar22237 Deli Aroma, a specialist in essential oils and personal care products, hopes to provide the utmost effectiveness and efficiency in each of its offerings. Fundamentally, being experts in the field of aromatherapy, it hopes to welcome in all lovers of natural skincare and organic ingredients, gathering all its various floral and herbal elements from reputable sources that have been vetted by experts. This has allowed it to build up a reputation of excellence and forthrightness, serving its clients only the best of the best and cultivating a brand based on incredible customer service and the impeccable delivery of results when it comes to its products. With so many glowing reviews and testimonials at its back, Deli Aroma is proud to say that it has grown to be bigger than ever in recent years. With products from its exemplary rose water serum to its all-purpose cleanser, cooling body lotion, diffuser blends, face serum, and even eye gel, its vast range promises to have a little bit of something that everyone can benefit from, resulting in a diverse client base for whom it is their onestop-shop. Moreover, this diversity in clientele brings in more new customers, as with each happy customer that goes through its shop, it finds itself recommended to more of their family, friends, and peers, allowing a boom in growth through word of mouth alone. Deli Aroma Best Essential Oils & Aroma Therapy Products Provider - Central Texas The company bringing luxury aromatherapy to the heart of Texas, Deli Aroma hopes to provide anything that a customer is missing in terms of self-care and products for their home wellness regimen. Nominally, its mission is to provide the greatest products with the greatest efficiency to the mutual benefit of those around it, helping a client to replenish, rejuvenate, and reinvigorate their bodies and souls with high quality products at competitive prices. Page 11 LUX 2022 Health Beauty & Wellness Awards Jan22124 When combined with the reviews visible through both its own website and other thirdparty review sites, the trust given to it by its clients becomes plain. Critically, a big part of the excellence it has accrued comes directly from its founder. The exemplary leader, innovative mind, and changemaker behind Deli Aroma is Austin-based Fai Chan, who herself suffered from debilitating acne scars and skin problems throughout her childhood and early years, until she found aromatherapy. She found that such treatments really helped her to recover and to begin to heal the longterms scarification that certain breakouts had left on her skin, and was inspired to start her own company that would bring the wonders of aromatherapy as an emotional and physical healer to many more people. After this realisation about where her goals lay, she began to work hard to learn more, and created a future for herself in following this passion; nowadays, she hopes to take many more people with her into the future of holistic personal care treatments. Using the right formula of essential oils, she found that she could bring a sense of calm and rejuvenation to her customers, and became a clinical member of the Aromatherapy Association Alliance of International Aromatherapists, beginning to make waves in the industry with her new ideas. This, in essence, gave her a new community to serve and to throw herself bodily into helping, and it is her dedication to her market segment, peers, and partners that allowed her to become a board member of the Alliance only a few years down the line. Furthermore, with the mentorship of experts such as Andre Butje and Gabriel Mojay, she was able to further develop her passion for using aromatherapy in emotional stimulation. The classes that these mentorship figures led in emotional issues and how aromatherapy can help such things allowed her to find a workable direction for her talents, one that made use of the theory of ‘acupoints’ as a method of alternative self-care and bodily replenishment. Critically, this knowledge formed a turning point for Fai. ‘I learned aromatherapy because I wanted to create a future for myself’, she tells us, and this is what allowed her to channel this into helping to create a future for her clients in the macro scale, opening up her own e-commerce method of getting her products to a wider market and continuing to grow and learn as a practitioner. Having taken courses, invested in education solutions, and done all the research she could possibly get her hands on over the course of her years in training, by the time she finally felt confident enough to open her own store, she was able to handle cases with complicated emotional issues. She works with each client on a personal level when it comes to her personal aromatherapy offerings and services, and the products she offers through her store reflect this, as she only sells the products that she herself believes in. Therefore, she has built her own reputation for trust and respect in her market segment and peer group. Moreover – based on a traditional Chinese medicine framework – her efforts focus on the synergy between therapy and chemistry, two elements that when combined create a new way to understand bodily and mental health. Consequentially, she finds her joy in helping her clients with advice, treatment, and guidance on what oils they should be trying, getting to know each of her therapeutic clients on a close and personal level so that she can guide them in a way that allows them to feel heard, seen, and respected.

Page 12 LUX 2022 Health Beauty & Wellness Awards Mar22550 From day one, Freshskin Beauty’s philosophy has centred around quality products and great service. Over the years, it has worked tirelessly to establish relationships with producers of the finest ingredients from around the globe. Its unique business model of dealing directly with the growers and producers of its herbs, plants, vitamins, and essential oils means it uses only the best ingredients direct from the source. Freshskin harnesses the magical power of plants to create luxurious beauty products that not only enhance the appearance of the skin, but also improve the mental state. Its gentle skincare range is so natural and pure that it’s suitable for everyone, regardless of age or skin type. Customers also go to Freshskin for wholesale essential oils, taking advantage of its quality products and low prices, whether it’s pet owners wanting to keep their homes smelling fresh while keeping their pooches safe (myrrh, frankincense, chamomile, lavender, rosemary, ginger), yoga enthusiasts seeking a scent to help them relax (lavender, lemongrass, citrus, patchouli, cypress, bergamot, clary sage), hay fever sufferers looking to ease their symptoms (lavender, eucalyptus, tea tree, peppermint, lemon, rosemary), or those looking for a sleep aid (bergamot, geranium, lavender, cedarwood atlas, ylang ylang). Freshskin’s oils come in a range of sizes, from 10ml bottles all the way up to 5l containers, with its daily orders going from a single bottle of lavender essential oil to bulk orders of oils and fragrances – each treated with the same level of care and service as the very first. Freshskin Beauty Ltd Best Homemade Candle & Wax Melt Company 2022 Founded in 2010, Freshskin Beauty supplies premium natural health and beauty products to individuals, hobbyists, and wholesale customers who are seeking the best essential oils at cheap prices.

Its product safety is ensured through a research and testing regime that sees each product and formulation tested by qualified personnel. Freshskin now stocks over 200 essential oils, fragrance oils, and carrier oils, as well as beautiful handmade soaps, moisturisers, and body lotions. But its products depend on nature’s ability to function, which is why the company is continuously seeking ways to make its products and packaging even more eco-friendly, and to offset the impact of the business on the environment. It has therefore teamed up with Ecologi, a fantastic organisation, to help combat the climate crisis. As an Ecologi member, Freshskin helps fund climate solutions both in the UK and globally, and it gets to see actual earthbenefiting results. As the company has grown, so too has its team’s passion for achieving the highest standards in customer care and a great service. This includes next day delivery, no minimum order, and hand packing every item to ensure customers get the same satisfaction from each Freshskin order as each team member does. Freshskin’s customers are delighted with its products and customer service, with Natalie saying, “I find Freshskin are very prompt and the fragrances are amazing. The product arrived promptly and securely packaged with free P&P. I must have tried five or more fragrances over the last six months, but must say the strawberry has got to be the best ever.” Karen comments, “Delighted with this purchase. Bought three essential/fragrance oils in this order and all an excellent price. Received within five days of placing the order and packaged very well to avoid damage in the post.” Indeed, if you’re looking for candle making supplies, soap making ingredients, or wish to dabble in the art of aromatherapy, Freshskin offers one of the biggest selections of essential oils and materials in the UK.

Page 14 Apr22253 In Boca Raton, Florida, is a 12,000 square foot, state-of-the-art “Hair Hospital,” that just so happens to be one of the world’s leading hair restoration and transplant clinics. Bauman Medical was founded in 1997 by Dr. Alan J. Bauman, MD, ABHRS, IAHRS, FISHRS, and has since seen over 33,000 patients pass through its doors. The private clinic provides the perfect setting for a relaxing and ultra-comfortable hair rejuvenation and recovery experience. Dr. Alan Bauman boasts a career spanning over 25 years, within which he has pioneered numerous ground-breaking hair restoration and transplant techniques, including minimally-invasive FUE Follicular Unit Extraction, VIP|FUE™ No-Shave Hair Transplant, Low-Level Laser Therapy, PRP Platelet Rich Plasma, PDOgro™, Eyelash Transplants, Exosome Therapy, and more. Further, Dr. Bauman is one of approximately only 200 physicians worldwide to achieve the certification from the prestigious American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS), he is an accepted member of the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons (IAHRS), a Fellow of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, and has also been recommended by the American Hair Loss Association. Bauman Medical Best Hair Restoration & Transplant Surgery Clinic - Southeast Florida For many years, hair transplants have been a cause for mockery, largely due to the stereotype that hair transplants are painful, obvious, unnatural looking, and “pluggy” in nature. However, the past two decades have seen numerous innovations that have changed this procedure for the better – now, hair transplants are comfortable, discrete and natural looking. Dr. Alan J. Bauman, MD, ABHRS, IAHRS, FISHRS, of Bauman Medical, is one of the industry’s leading pioneers. Page 15 On top of his many professional accolades, Dr. Bauman has been recognised by a variety of organisations and business awards. For example, he was recognised by Forbes as one of ‘10 CEOs Transforming Healthcare in America.’ He has also been voted as the ‘#1 Top Hair Restoration Surgeon’ in North America by Aesthetic Everything for six consecutive years, and short-listed amongst ‘The Best Hair Transplant Surgeons in the World Today’ by Ape To Gentleman. Moreover, a variety of television and magazine appearances are featured in his portfolio – he has lent his expertise to Good Morning America, CNN, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, and GQ, among others. Dr. Bauman has conducted over 10,000 hair transplants, with each following the promise within the Bauman Medical tagline – Advanced Treatments. Exceptional Results. The Ultimate Hair Restoration Experience. It is this that truly sets the clinic apart. Indeed, Bauman Medical is all about the client experience, as Dr. Bauman is adamant about providing a premium service to patients throughout their hair restoration journey. One customer comments, ‘I’ve actually gone back to Dr. Bauman twice for two sessions about two years apart. I was very pleased after the 1st treatment that I wanted a little more coverage. Dr. Bauman with his friendly staff made my visits a great experience! Highly recommend and great post-surgery care!’ This testimony is further supported by the endless five-star reviews that can be found on both the company’s website and across the internet. In essence, it’s abundantly clear that Bauman Medical’s diverse clientele regularly leave the practice satisfied with their results. Such clients are often entering the clinic with severe hair loss due to conditions such as Hereditary Androgenetic Alopecia, COVID Hair Loss, Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia, Traction Alopecia, Alopecia Areata, and much more. Similarly, clients may have experienced hair loss due to hair damage, chemotherapy, scarring, malnutrition, or hormonal imbalances. Bauman Medical offers advanced and non-invasive methods to identify the exact cause behind the loss of or damage of the hair. Additionally, much of this success is supported by the Bauman Medical team. The clinic only hires the best of the best – those that possess a wealth of experience and the right qualifications. ‘We look to hire team members with experience and skills, as well as a passion to deliver 5-star service,’ comments a spokesperson for the company. In turn, the clinic is not only an excellent place for the customers, but also for the team. It provides a place in which the team members can thrive thanks to the collaborative culture that breeds leadership, commitment, trust and respect. Of course, within an industry that is constantly evolving due to scientific breakthroughs, this is a great benefit. Bauman Medical strives to remain on top of the current trends – it also pushes to create them. ‘Dr. Bauman is always at the forefront of technology and innovations in hair restoration. He’s pioneered many hair restoration treatments during his 25 years in practice. He’s also very tech-savvy. Dr. Bauman has been doing Virtual Consultations for almost 20 years and patients come to us from all over the world,’ the spokesperson continues. The future of the company is set to be incredibly busy. Bauman Medical will continue to create cutting-edge hair transplant procedures and technology, with which it will serve clients from across the globe. Innovations around genetic testing have pushed the science into a critical component for the treatment of such conditions, as it takes into account the fact that different people may respond differently to treatments based upon their unique DNA. Therefore, Bauman Medical has recently helped pioneer an innovative piece of genetic testing technology. Named the TrichoTest™, the genetic test focuses upon three variations of 16 different SNP’s (genes) which will then be able to inform the Bauman Medical team what kind of therapies and treatments might work for the client’s specific type of hair loss based on their specific DNA.

Expanding on this point, Katherine explains the company’s offerings stating, “In addition to our retail blends, we offer bespoke and semi-bespoke perfume consults, which are extremely popular. These consults can be combined with scent anchoring. I have reports from the client (especially in the scent anchoring consults) that personalized experiences have been life-changing for people. Moreover, we offer a free membership to mediation training and guided meditations, specially designed to be used with our fragrances.” Because of the raw intellect and pure dedication to updating training and education on its products, Meet the Herb Halfway has been distinctively able to differentiate itself from its competitors due to its exceptional training that exceeds the industry’s requirements. Moreover, something highly regarded within the sector and amongst clients is that Meet the Herb Halfway products are made from sustainable or renewable resources and botanicals. “They are scrupulously sourced from providers who adhere to the Natural Perfumer’s Guild and NAHA (National Association of Holistic Aromatherapists) guidelines. While we use ethically sourced absolutes and essential oils from all over the world, we infuse our base oils and alcohols with botanicals that we grow locally, which reduces the need to pay for shipping,” explains Katherine. In addition to sourcing locally, products at Meet the Herb Halfway have gone the extra mile to grow many herbs, spices, and florals. Moreover, concerning its local arrangements, the business has successfully obtained access and collaboration with a local farmer to collect beeswax. Katherine expands on this, stating, “The beeswax is minimally processed and is not pressed, so it retains the bees’ characteristic, benefits, and aroma of floral pollen. In addition, we use centuries-old infusion processes to layer our perfumes.” At Meet the Herb Halfway, products and training are exceptionally thought out, crafted and fine-tuned to the smallest detail; however, its outstanding service doesn’t end with product and knowledge but expands into scent anchoring workshops and private consults. “During the consult, we use a technique that we have developed from over 800 hours of yoga and meditation teacher training and 15 years of experience of using meditation with natural perfumes. First, the private consult involves helping the client realize an attribute she or he would like to enhance, such as confidence. Next, we work together to develop the imagery and retrieve memories of the attribute. Then we put together a personal mediation that they use with their fragrance,” explains Katherine. Because the company is established within a niche market, Meet the Herb Halfway is highly regarded and growing rapidly each year due to clients increasing preference for natural and non-alcohol-based perfumes on their skin. Therefore, Meet the Herb Halfway focuses on oil-based solid perfumes (attars) that are beloved by people of all ages, genders and diversities. However, like many companies, businesses and individuals across several sectors have faced over the past two years, the impacts have the Covid-19 pandemic have fluctuated with severity throughout several establishments. Nevertheless, for Meet the Herb Halfway, the business remained inspirational and innovative. The company developed a semi bespoke perfume experience that aimed to transform from inperson bespoke experiences to virtual ones. “We send out a set of 1 ml accord set for clients to experience the aroma and then indicate what the final fragrance will smell like. We also added many workshops for anxiety and stress to support people through the most stressful times of COVID,” explains Katherine. For the future, Meet the Herb Halfway plans to release several more perfumes over the year to satisfy the demand and scope of aromas to suit an expanded clientele preference. These products have been carefully crafted and developed over the past two years to ensure quality and sustainability. On a grander scale, over the next few years, Meet the Herb Halfway aims to release up to 13 new fragrances – ones that will be removed every year and replaced with a new perfume. In addition to this, Meet the Herb Halfway will be releasing six solid perfume soliflores in late April of 2022. An exciting future for Meet the Herb Halfway is on the horizon. Regarded as the Best Botanical Perfurmer of the year, its consistent rise in success and recognition is undoubted.

Page 20 LUX 2022 Health Beauty & Wellness Awards Mar22353 Sunrider Europe Inc stems from the extensive history of Sunrider International, a company founded in Utah in 1982. Its founders, Tei-Fu and Oi-Lin Chen, both have backgrounds as doctors and a shared passion for improving quality of life through boosting people’s health. Consequently, their passion infused the creation of the company, which has since become a global enterprise spanning almost 50 countries and territories. Sunrider Europe Inc provides a plethora of holistic and herbal products to the company’s European clientele – encompassing England, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Austria, Latvia, Italy, and many more. Indeed, the company’s life is entwined with that of its founders, spanning across culture, generations, Western innovation, and ancient Eastern traditions. The company’s story truly begins in Tei-Fu’s homeland, Taiwan. As a sickly child, Tei-Fu was often treated with Chinese herbal remedies by his grandfather – little did anyone know that this would serve as the catalyst for Tei-Fu’s deep interest in Chinese herbal philosophy. Subsequently, Tei-Fu opted to study herbal medicine and pharmacology at university, and it was here that he would first cross paths with Oi-Lin. The pair shared a love for science and a natural curiosity, which promptly blossomed into a relationship. Tei-Fu and Oi-Lin were soon married and setting up their lives in the United States, Dr. Oi-Lin Chen worked as a research SUNRIDER EUROPE INC Most Innovative Herbal Nutrition Brand 2022: SUNRIDER® Sunrider International has delved into numerous industries, from hospitality to the art world.

The company’s European arm acts as a direct sales provider, supplying nutritionally charged herbal supplements and skincare products across the continent assistant and Dr. Tei-Fu Chen had various jobs including 7–11 assistant manager and judo instructor. Their happy family soon began to expand, eventually resulting in five children. However, it was here, in 1982, that their lives would change drastically. Tei-Fu created Sunrider International, a herbal health food and skincare company. Whilst the company began to take off, Oi-Lin continued to practice medicine in order to support the family, but she would soon join the company as president. 1987 saw the couple move the business to Torrance, California, where they built their World Headquarters, beautifully situated on nine acres of land. Not only did Sunrider International continue to manufacture the finest herbal health solutions, but the company also increased its output. As of 2022, Sunrider International boasts approximately two million square feet of state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in the United States, China, India, Singapore, and Taiwan. Moreover, it is currently building a manufacturing plant on a 71-acre property located in Midlothian, Texas. This location is expected to open in May 2022. All five of the couple’s children hold senior positions within the company – either directly at the corporate headquarters or on the Board of Directors. Of course, this has generated numerous positives for the company – it has enabled effective communication, solid relationships, and a level of transparency that can only be found within family units. Further, they each possess impressive qualifications. For example, their daughter, Wendy Teng, earned a BA in English and biology from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a Juris Doctor from Duke University School of Law. Dr. Reuben Chen, their son, is a board-certified physician specialising in sports medicine and pain management and has extensive training in traditional Chinese medicine. He also has a Bachelor of Science in neuroscience from Brigham Young University and a Doctor of Medicine from the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine.

In addition, Eric earned himself a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry from Brigham Young University and is a PhD candidate in Organic Chemistry at the University of California, Los Angeles. Last but not least, their son, Jonathan Chen, has a Bachelor of Science in Information Systems and Master’s in Information Systems Management. Each of these aspects have benefitted the company greatly in its global pursuit, forging a solid foundation upon which the company has promoted herbal products to an international audience. Based upon thousands of years of Chinese herbal studies and contemporary science, the company has crafted a blueprint that guides each of its products, from the concept all the way to its creation.
