A fresh take on beauty
Odacite is a health and beauty brand that’s cutting out retailers and delivering products right to your doorstep, all in the name of freshness.The product is made, dated and shipped individually for each customer, anywhere in the world. Odacite claims this ensures optimum delivery of super-charged antioxidants, which are most potent for only about 6 months. Since the product is dated, there is no need for preservatives, and the products are all-natural.
Why it matters
Odacite is turning the notion of shelf-stability on it’s head, and using a short life-span it its advantage. By including a “born-on date” and giving products a shelf-life of only 6 months, the brand is encouraging customers to come back for more, often. It also allows them to set themselves apart from longer-lasting products that include preservatives. We’ve seen the born-on date concept in food, of course and beer. What other consumer products could benefit from a shorter shelf life? What brands could capitalize on the idea of expiration, or a product losing its effectiveness sooner?
Forest Essentials, an Indian premium cosmetics company, blends the age old recipes from the Indian ‘Ayurvedic’ medicine system and presents them in modern formulations like serums, elixirs and emulsions. Traditional formulations are not new in itself, but in most cases, the appeal of such products is limited to a niche audience. Forest Essentials has been able to strike a perfect balance and not only create a premium image but also a viable, growing business.
