INTRODUCING INTELLIGENT NUTRIENTS™

“because everything we put in and on our bodies must be nutritious and safe,”

–Horst Rechelbacher, Founder of Intelligent Nutrients

Horst Rechelbacher announced the launch of his new certified organic health and beauty brand, Intelligent Nutrients, at a press event in New York City. The health and beauty lifestyle brand, Intelligent Nutrients, was unveiled to the press and beauty industry and includes more than twenty SKUs for launch. The launch collection includes certified organic aromatics, certified organic scalp and hair care, certified organic hair styling, certified organic total body cleanser, certified organic lip delivery nutrition ™ , and the heart of the line—Intellimune ™ —an internal/external certified organic super antioxidant seed oil blend and tablets. This is the first phase of an entire lifestyle brand with future products to include skin care, body care, maternal/baby care, love therapy, pet care and INvironmental products for the home.

“We’ve created something that has not been done before with Intelligent Nutrients. We’ve merged food science and cosmetic chemistry to create a new paradigm in beauty. We called it Nutritional Chemistry—it’s based on using only certified organic food-derived ingredients—substances the body recognizes and readily assimilates as nutrients in the body,” said Horst Rechelbacher, founder of the company.

“At Intelligent Nutrients each product is formulated for both performance and safety -our belief is that what we put on our
bodies should be as safe and nutritious as what goes into our bodies. It’s my personal mission to change the outdated
chemistry which is used in personal care products. And rather than just talk about what’s wrong, I decided to show the
industry that beauty can be done differently—responsibly and safely—without compromising performance,” explains
Rechelbacher.

Because our bodies absorb toxins and chemicals in the air we breathe and in the products we use every day, Intelligent
Nutrients intends to educate consumers regarding the truth about ingredients. “Not all manufacturers are coming clean. In
fact, greenwashing has become an epidemic within the beauty industry. Our commitment is not only to tell the truth, but
to educate consumers and the industry alike about organics, as well as the risks associated with many harmful ingredients
commonly used in beauty products,” explains Melissa Christenson, President of Intelligent Nutrients.

NEW Product INtelligence:
The launch collection includes aromatics, hair and scalp care, styling, body cleanser and lip balm—all certified organic to the
highest standards, as well as the anti-aging, anti-oxidant powerhouse seed oil complex—Intellimune, also certified organic.
“When you look at current beauty products and their most potent active ingredients—you’ll see that most are derived from
food sources—from Omega-3, to lycopene, to fruit acids and antioxidants. We‘ve taken this chemistry and raised the bar on
cosmetic science by using the purest form of the food-derived ingredients to ensure safety, industry organic certification and authenticity — and most important—performance,” explains Christenson.

INgredients:
All IN products are free of the suspect ingredients commonly used in beauty products today, including sulfates, petrochemicals, plastics, phthalates, parabens, formaldehyde donors, heavy metals, silicone, mineral oil, petrolatum and 1,4 dioxane.

Intelligent Nutrients Launch Products Overview:
Certified Organic Intellimune™:
Intellimune ™ Oil and Tablets—USDA certified organic nutraceutical supplements– offer a super potent amount of antioxidants in a single serving. Both are made from thousands of certified organic fruit and herb seeds chosen for their extremely high antioxidant properties and blended for a synergistically higher health potential. Cold-pressed without chemicals or heat for integrity, efficacy, safety and purity. The unprecedented levels of immune-boosting antioxidants in Intellimune help prevent premature aging and help combat oxidative stress.

Each teaspoon of Intellimune ™ oil delivers the oil antioxidant equivalent of eating 10 pounds of grapes, raspberries or
cranberries.

Intelligent Nutrients feels so strongly about the value of Intellimune ™ , this powerful blend has been added into every hair, skin and body care product.

Key Ingredients:
Organic black cumin (nigella sativa) seed: Used for centuries in the Middle East. Black cumin oil is well known for its
immune strengthening properties; exceptionally high in antioxidants.

Organic red grape (vitis vinifera) seed: High in linoleic acid, Vitamin E and the antioxidant proanthrocyanidin. Its oil is
polyunsaturated.

Organic pumpkin (curcubita pepo) seed: Highly nutritious. Contains Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acids.
Organic red raspberry (rubus idaeus) seed: Its oil is very low in saturated fat. Is a good source of polyunsaturated fats
including Omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants including tocopherols and tocotrienols.
Organic cranberry (punica granatum) seed: A rich source of fatty acids and antioxidants including Vitamin E in the form of
alpha and gamma tocopherols.

Fear not the dreaded hat hair: Hair Styles For Hat Styles

Hats are the must have accessory for the fall and winter months.

But it is not always so easy to look good in a hat–here is the secret it is all about the hair.

Celebrity hairstylist, Philip Pelusi reveals how to make your hair look great under the most common hat styles of the season.

Hat Style: Fedora
Hair Style: Contrast the angles of the hat with loose feminine waves.
Why This Works: Loose feminine waves are a great way to wear your hair under a Fedora. This type of hat has very sharp “menswear” angles. This is off-set by the softer hairstyle.
How To Achieve This Look: This type of hair style works best on medium to longer length hair. If hair has a natural wave, simply apply a curl enhancing products like P2® by Philip Pelusi® ReCurl to boost waves and BeachComber to add texture and let hair dry or dry with a diffuser attachment on your blow dyer. If hair is straight, use a big barrel curling iron to add curls, some facing towards and some facing away from the face.

Hat Style: Newsboy cap
Hair Style: Create ballerina-esque bun at the nape of the neck.
Why This Works: Wearing a ballerina-esque bun at the nape is perfect combination with this tomboyish type Newsboy cap look. Also the Newsboy cap is supposed to be worn low on the forehead and this tends to cover most of the entire forehead. Wearing a ballerina bun pulls the hair back off the face opening to face up.
How To Achieve This Look: Part hair in the center and smooth hair back into a low ponytail at the middle of the nape. Use a hair smoothing bore bristle brush and a hair smoothing product like Tela® Beauty Organics Composure. Apply product to the ponytail also and brush smooth. Twist ponytail in one direction and wind around ponytail and secure with a few hair pins. Put on Newsboy and you are ready to go.

Hat Style: Beret
Hair Style: Tuck the hair back into a side pony so that soft strands peek out.
Why This Works: A side swept ponytail is a perfect way to wear your hair under a Beret. A Beret has a French romantic look and this feminine ponytail really compliments that. Tuck the hair back into a side pony so that soft strands peek out.
How To Achieve This Look: This look works best with straight or smooth hair. Create a side part and use a bore bristle paddle brush and a hair smoothing product like Tela® Beauty Organics Encore and brush into a low side ponytail at the nape on the opposite side of the part. Secure ponytail and put on Beret. The back of the Beret should slouch to the opposite side of the ponytail.

Hat Style: Shearling hat
Hair Style: Pull the hair half-way back, then unclip when the hat comes off to get the hair’s bounce back.
Why This Works: Shearling hats are beautiful and warm but they often crush the hair. A hair half-way up look is a great idea to make the hair look great while the hat is on and preserve the hair for when the hat comes off.
How To Achieve This Look: Style hair as usual and then apply a product that can act as a dry hair setting lotion like P2® by Philip Pelusi® Increase. Then divide hair in half from ear to ear and twist up the crown of the head and secure with a clip. This will work as a dry set. Once you take the hat off and remove clip, toss to separate hair and revive hair with a hair refreshing product like as P2® by Philip Pelusi® RefresHair®.
