PUR ATTITUDE x CELL RENEWAL NIGHT CRÈME 

PUR ATTITUDE™ LAUNCHES ADVANCED CELL RENEWAL NIGHT CRÈME 

 

An Overnight Skincare Product with Natural Polymer Time-Released Technology, Bio-Advanced Peptides and Fermented Oil

 

PUR attitude™  released Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème, a high-performance anti-aging cream that delivers key ingredients into the skin overnight via a natural polymer time-released technology. The cream also leverages bio-advanced peptides that oxygenate the skin and promote cell renewal, and fermented oil to improve youthful suppleness of the skin.

 

“The beauty of the PUR attitude brand is that we can deliver such advanced technology using safe ingredients,” said Jerry Rayman, President of PUR attitude. “The science behind anti-aging skincare is developing at a rapid rate. The products have better performance than ever before. PUR attitude is delighted to deliver yet another high-performing product to the marketplace.”

 

Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème is enhanced with the power of natural Hyaluronix™ technology, which delivers up to one thousand times its weight in water, binding moisture deeply into the skin. This night cream uses a complex of three different molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid—combined with glucosamine and ceramides—to create a delivery system that encapsulates and time-releases key ingredients deep within the lower layers of the skin. The cream also delivers a bio-advanced peptide technology along with Acetyle Hexapeptide-3, which has been proven to help reduce the signs of aging.

 

While the health benefits of eating fermented, probiotic foods are widely accepted in the food industry at this time, their use in skin care is relatively new. Fermenting natural oils restructures complex molecules, transforming them into tiny “superfoods” for the skin, providing faster absorption that results in healthier, younger-looking skin. Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème uses a fermented olive oil for superior performance.

 

Each product in the PUR attitude line is dermatologist tested and approved, backed by independent clinical studies, and follows the brand’s standards for “Safe Beauty,” avoiding harsh chemicals, parabens, PEG’s, glycols, sulfates, petro-chemicals, synthetic fragrances and artificial dyes.

 

Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème is available in 1 fl oz at a retail price of$59. (This is approximately a six-week supply, when used once daily). For more information, visit www.PURattitude.com.

South Beach Wine & Food Festival

Prominent Illinois pig farmer Julie Maschhoff led panel of judges at the 2018 Swine, Wine & Spirits event at SOBEWFF

Julie Maschhoff, co-owner of The Maschhoffs LLC and one of the nation’s largest and most successful pork producers, led the judging panel at this year’s Swine, Wine & Spirits event as part of the South Beach Wine and Food Festival (SOBEWFF) in Miami. The Maschhoff family is the fourth largest pork producer in the United States, marketing 5 million pigs each year.

Maschhoff and the panel selected the best pork dish from about a dozen competing chef entries at Sunday’s Swine, Wine & Spirits event. She was also available at the various National Pork Board-sponsored events throughout the week where she shared her insight with consumers and media on all things pork, including pork quality and safety, animal welfare and sustainability.

“Growing up on a livestock farm, we have always focused on providing good animal care – keeping them healthy – and sound environmental stewardship,” said Maschhoff. “Today, as our farm feeds not just our family but other families around the world, it is even more imperative that we share our story of stewardship with consumers. We want consumers to know and have confidence that the pork we produce is a great, safe, healthy choice for their family.”

Through the years, Maschhoff and her husband, Ken, have been strong and consistent voices in educating and informing consumers about the importance of animal agriculture. Maschhoff has been a frequent spokesperson for pig farming through her work with the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance.

The Swine, Wine & Spirits event took place on Sunday, February 25, at the Biltmore Hotel and was hosted by local chef and restaurateur, Giorgio Rapicavoli. Additional judges included: National Pork Board Ambassador and celebrity chef, Richard Ingraham; Executive Chef of Goya Foods, Fernando Desa; and Eddie Zamora of The Yum Yum Foodie online fame.

This is the third year the National Pork Board has been the festival’s official pork sponsor, with pork featured as the event’s preferred protein. The five-day festival ran from Wednesday, February 21 through Sunday, February 25, 2018, and featured culinary events at a variety of venues throughout Miami and the beaches.

Attendees found the National Pork Board at other signature events: Tacos After Dark on Thursday, February 22; Burger Bash on Friday, February 23; and Swine, Wine & Spirits on Sunday, February 25.

“South Beach Wine & Food Festival was the perfect setting to engage with consumers who love pork and have been looking for additional ways to enjoy it,” said Jose de Jesus, director of multicultural marketing at the National Pork Board. “We know that the word ‘pork’ is synonymous with flavor and we are pleased to have had the opportunity to bring such amazing flavor to the festival attendees.”

WAKANDA FOREVER x MARVEL

The Black Panther’s Dora Milaje Meet The Marvel Universe in WAKANDA FOREVER!


Hugo and Nebula Award winner Nnedi Okorafor brings Wakanda’s most fearless warriors to Marvel!

 

After their scene-stealing theatrical debut in Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, Wakanda’s fiercest warriors are traveling outside of their country to fight new threats and new troubles, in an all-new story by award-winning science-fiction and fantasy author Nnedi Okorafor.

 

A Hugo and Nebula Award winner whose best-selling books include the Binti trilogy, Who Fears Death and Akaka Witch, Nnedi first brought her storytelling to Marvel in the digital comic series Black Panther: Long Live The King and in the Vernomverse anthology story “Blessing In Disguise.” With art by Alberto Jimenez Alqurquerque (Jean Grey), WAKANDA FOREVER: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 brings the Dora Milaje out of their vibranium city and into New York in the first of a three-part story when a Wakandan threat falls upon Manhattan – and they meet webslinger Peter Parker! The Dora Milaje’s adventures continue in WAKANDA FOREVER: X-MEN and WAKANDA FOREVER: AVENGERS in July and August.

 

Learn more about WAKANDA FOREVER #1 and view exclusive character design sketches from Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque in Okorafor’s interview with Vogue Magazine.

 

“I’m super excited about writing this storyline. Powerful disciplined African women with futuristic spears who faced their shortcomings and changed a nation? Oh heck yeah, I’m so there,” shared Okorafor. “Fans of the Dora Milaje can look forward to seeing them out in the world beyond T’Challa and the Wakandan throne’s shadow. They’ll get to see the Dora Milaje come into their own, while teaming up with the unexpected.”

 

“As millions of moviegoers now know (and as comic readers already knew!), the Dora Milaje are the absolute coolest. And the rest of the Marvel Universe is about to learn this too when Okoye, Ayo and Aneka leave Wakanda on an adventure that will see them team up with Spider-Man, the X-Men and the Avengers,” teased series editor Wil Moss. “Nnedi Okorafor and a talented team of artists will be telling one Dora Milaje story that runs through these three separate WAKANDA FOREVER one-shots. We’re lucky to have Nnedi on board for this — she’s an incredible novelist, and her recent BLACK PANTHER: LONG LIVE THE KING digital series proved that she’s a great comic book writer too. She’s come up with a crazy-tough problem for the Dora Milaje to solve — but if anyone can, it’s these crazy-tough women.”

 

Join the fearless trio of Okoye, Ayo and Aneka in all-new stories as they travel the globe to protect the country – for Wakanda!
