Mary Kay to Launch Beauty Industry First as Thousands Convene for Canadian Seminar

Global Cosmetic Powerhouse to Revolutionize Delivery System of Vitamin C for Consumers

MISSISSAUGA, ON, July 25, 2017 /CNW/ - With a global portfolio of more than 1,300 patents for products, technologies and packaging designs, innovation leader Mary Kay is set to announce a beauty industry first at the company's annual Canadian Seminar. As roughly 2,000 Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants prepare to convene in Mississauga, Ont., the global cosmetics powerhouse will introduce a breakthrough in beauty technology, TimeWise® Vitamin C Activating Squares™. 

Since the iconic beauty company was founded in 1963, Mary Kay Inc. has fostered a culture of creativity and innovation and invests millions of dollars in research and development. The company conducts hundreds of thousands of tests each year to ensure Mary Kay® products meet the highest standards of safety and performance. 

"Mary Kay is on the front lines of innovation and we're excited to announce a beauty industry first in the form of our TimeWise® Vitamin C Activating Squares," said Dr. Lucy Gildea, Chief Scientific Officer for Mary Kay Inc. "Pure vitamin C degrades and loses its power over time when exposed to air, light or water, but with the new Mary Kay® dissolvable vitamin C square, a serum is enhanced and boosted with a fresh, pure and potent vitamin C elixir. It's a revolutionary skin care innovation in the palm of your hand."

To date, more than 1,300 Mary Kay patents have been granted and in 2016 another 130 patents were awarded. The milestones validate Mary Kay's status as one of the top innovators in the direct selling and cosmetic industries. Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants will get their first look at the newly launched innovations at the company's annual Canadian Seminar held July 28 through July 30 at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont. 

"We love summers in the Greater Toronto Area because we get to welcome thousands of Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants from every corner of the country, as well as those traffic-stopping Mary Kay pink Cadillacs," said Lynda Rose, General Manager of Mary Kay Canada.  "We cannot wait to celebrate the success of our Mary Kay entrepreneurs through recognition, education, inspiration and motivation for the year ahead."
