Laurie Nicoll Nord and Julio Lamberty Form Luxury Wellness International
“Julio and I were inspired by the vision of the Global Wellness Institute’s ‘Beauty Meets Wellness’ Initiative. The goal of the initiative is to scientifically connect beauty and wellness and create a new vocabulary that positions beauty as an active and positive contributor to the health and well-being,” says Nord. “We believe that living your best life means living ‘well.’ There is more of an understanding that what you put on your body on a daily basis matters to your overall health. Luxury is moving away from an emphasis on material things—today it is about living well. Consumers are redefining luxury to include sustainability and social responsibility.”
Nord’s foray into the skincare business was born out of her personal quest to find a solution to her own skin ailments and premature aging. When serving as Business Development Officer at a scientific research company, she learned about the healing properties of stem cell technology. She recruited a renowned team of stem cell specialists and began her own two-year research project to identify a protocol that would capture the healing properties of the stem cell in an entirely new way.
Lamberty was attracted to working with Nord based on the significant growth opportunity for Stemulation, along with the positive results he experienced with the products on his own skin. With 30 years of experience creating professional and retail solutions for luxury and specialty stores, spas, resorts and salons, his expertise in business development, product management and strategic initiatives work as an ideal complement to Nord’s skill set. Lamberty was the Director of Emerging Technologies at Limited Brand, launching the Victoria Secret beauty line at Bath and Body Works. Other positions and projects include COO/ Vice President of Research and Development at Peter Thomas Roth, and the development of First Aid Beauty products.
Stemulation skincare is the original leader of stem cell technology utilizing safe, nourishing and powerful ingredients that work synergistically to product optimal results. Stemulation’s formulations are primarily botanical and contain no parabens or harsh chemicals.
“We live in a unique time where beauty, health and wellness are rapidly converging in meaningful ways. The understanding that beauty is more than “skin deep” is gradually seeping into the global consciousness – a realization that we can only be our most beautiful selves when we are in good health. I am excited that Luxury Wellness International will serve the market that wants science-backed products that produce results, yet free of toxic ingredients. Our customers don’t have to decide between products that work and products that won’t cause harm,” says Lamberty.
