Impact Naturals and Socati have collaborated on a line of Revive, Restore and Rest CBD, CBG and CBN capsules that are said to offer "better and faster absorption into blood" for faster uptake and longer-lasting effects. The products are designed using a "novel pharmaceutical approach," Chylosoma, per the companies.
The products also comprise ginseng, ginkgo biloba and melatonin.
“Using our proprietary lipid-absorption technology, Impact Naturals’ products allow cannabinoids to take advantage of the body’s existing lipid transport system, boosting absorption and delivery throughout the body,” said James Lowder, MD, chief medical officer at Impact Naturals. "Independent study data has shown the products to deliver improved CBD absorption and a quicker onset."
"Our commitment is to create the next generation of CBD products using a science-based approach," said said Vassili Kotlov, CEO of Impact Naturals. "By creating products that are able to naturally boost cannabinoid absorption in the human body, we’re able to deliver products that are new and different in the wellness space. By collaborating with Socati, the leader in CBD formulations, we’ve been able to achieve something very special with these products and are incredibly excited for people to use them."
“It’s a privilege to work with so many progressive CBD brands like Impact Naturals who are dedicated to creating innovative products for customers that are passionate about improving their own health and well-being,” said Mark Elfenbein, chief revenue officer at Socati.

Beauty by Holition is launching an AI- and AR-powered try-on for the global travel retail sector via Harper Dennis Hobbs' FACE platform. The technology can reportedly apply more than 10 types of beauty products, calibrated and modified by color, opacity, shine, undertone and overtone.
The technology is designed to be deployed at airports, in-flight, on cruise liners and ferries, and at downtown duty-free stores.
Customers include Kiko Milano, Charlotte Tilbury, Maxfactor and Rimmel.
“We are delighted to be working alongside Beauty by Holition within the global travel retail sector," said Simon Black, executive director, Harper Dennis Hobbs. "We look forward to working with our partners to launch this new technology and believe that this will be a mainstay in the future of the cosmetics market. Due to the impact of COVID-19 on consumer shopping habits, people may not feel comfortable testing cosmetics in the same way that they did previously. This technology is the ideal way to interact with consumers before they fly by enabling them to have the confidence to click and collect while also engaging them in-store. Consumers will be able to test the cosmetics on their own devices or through the use of in-store tablets, while the staff will still be able to help, inform and share brand knowledge.”
"Technology has an important role in the future of beauty retail, and Beauty by Holition is fully committed to helping brands from all over the world elevate their customer experience and retail strategy through our full suite of virtual cosmetics solutions, powered by our core technology, Face By Holition," said Sam Arkless, chief product officer, Beauty by Holition.
