The meeting theme ‘Foresight’ symbolized the association’s unique predictive capabilities, empowering its members with marketplace and public policy insights, and driving a myriad of critical achievements

WASHINGTON – November 15, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

The Fragrance Creators Association (Fragrance Creators) celebrated a myriad of results the organization has delivered for business and consumers during its 2022 Annual Meeting held today in Morristown, New Jersey. Association leaders confirmed the efficacy of Fragrance Creators’ 2016 strategic overhaul, which centered around strengthening and modernizing its regulatory science capacity while building trust and appreciation for fragrance and the well-being benefits it delivers to billions of consumers every day. The association’s monitoring, analysis and custom templates and trackers are essential to providing members with the insights and tools they need to stay ahead of the curve. This Foresight is crucial in Fragrance Creators’ ability to be the proven leader representing fragrance manufacturers and others along the value chain.  

Top 2022 achievements include: 

  • Providing members access to key governmental officials at the White House, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Food and Drug Administration, and Congress; 
  • Leading and successfully influencing critical fragrance-related legislative issues, including ensuring proposals are based on sound science and protect industry competition and innovation; 
  • Encouraging stewardship principles throughout the industry that advance responsible industry growth; and 
  • Providing members with unique and meaningful predictive intelligence and custom compliance support tools. 

Work on these priorities will continue in 2023. During the public session of the meeting, former Senator Byron Dorgan and Dan Renberg of ArentFox Schiff LLP recapped the 2022 U.S. midterm elections and provided insights into the 2023 political landscape, including the impact on key Fragrance Creators’ priorities, such as cosmetics modernization and trade policy.

In addition, attendees were updated on the European Union’s Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS) and the essentiality of fragrance. Technical experts from the International Fragrance Association (IFRA), Procter & Gamble, and Estee Lauder provided attendees with background and a status update on the profoundly impactful CSS proposal. 

During another session, executives from Arylessence, Procter & Gamble and the Estee Lauder Companies explored why humans have consistently relied on scents, and what makes fragrance an essential part of everyday life. They highlighted Fragrance Creators’ recent study in this area and future plans to continue the work in this important area to educate consumers. 

Fragrance Creators was pleased to announce its 2023 leadership – with Cynthia Reichard, Executive Vice President of Arylessence, and Dr. Robert Weinstein, CEO of Robertet USA, continuing to co-chair the organization. During the meeting, Fragrance Creators members voted to confirm the 2023 Board of Directors Slate and welcomed Kevin Whelan from Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc., Ken McAlister from The Lebermuth Company, Inc., and Jacqueline Liou from LVMH as the newest additions to the Board. 

Reichard noted, “Representing industry at-large is a profound responsibility, one that I know our membership will honor by supporting science-based regulation and smart policies that empower all good companies to thrive and deliver more for people, perfume, and the planet.” 

“Leadership matters, and it is an honor to serve as the chair of a values-driven organization—values that harness the power of foresight and that will continue to prevail as we work toward a better future,” said Weinstein.  

“This is the most important time in history for many trade associations, including ours. I am privileged to work with a leadership so committed to Fragrance Creators remaining a powerful forum for corporate leaders—responsible fragrance industry stewards—to forge innovative solutions made possible by working collectively in a pre-market environment,” said Farah K. Ahmed, president & CEO, Fragrance Creators. “I look forward to working with our entire membership, putting science and industry stewardship first, to meet our future opportunities and challenges.”

Airnoggin Named One of TIME’s Best Inventions of 2022

TIME Awards the Revolutionary Technology in the AIRNOGGIN Soft Safety Helmet Special Mention as One of The Best Inventions of 2022

NEW YORK – November 15, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

 Airnoggin, the revolutionary new safety helmet that uses a proprietary soft material instead of a hard shell, has received a coveted special mention by TIME as one of the Best Inventions of 2022. The accolade is made public live today on Time.com. Airnoggin’s patented and innovative new soft material is proven to protect just as well as hard helmets and has been awarded a 5-star rating by Virginia Tech Helmet Lab. This innovative system is now available for the first time in the soft Airnoggin helmet. Available exclusively on www.airnoggin.com.

Airnoggin’s patented helmet technology took years of testing and research to perfect and is the only product on the market like it. To the surprise of professional testers, the soft safety helmet exceeded every U.S. CPSC and European EN1078 safety standard for bicycles, skateboards, and e-bikes/scooters.

The proprietary technology in the Airnoggin helmet was discovered by entrepreneur Jeffrey Klein, who realized that the rise of the micro-mobility industry in the U.S. was accompanied by a growing number of accidents and cases of head trauma. Carrying a hard-shell helmet wherever you go from work to evening hours just isn’t compatible with many people’s lifestyle. What if a helmet could be soft and could easily fold up and fit into your bag? This idea led to the development of a revolutionary material that is set to transform the self-safety market. Airnoggin is the first protective gear product to use this special soft material. The Airnoggin is inflatable and comes with its own carrying case. When inflated, the helmet looks like a trend-forward hard shell. The company is developing new soft-fabric versions that offer the same level of safety with street wear appeal.

Airnoggin exists to make self-safety second nature. The company envisions a world where everyone can move with confidence, and safety is as easy as riding a bike.
