Introducing the launch of Michal Morrison Inc., a new, science-first skincare company poised to revolutionize the beauty industry. With its first hero product launch, Genesis βSTEM6™ Molecular Serum, Michal Morrison Inc. will define and lead a new category of biomimetic skincare technology with its proven, proprietary, and patent-pending βSTEM6 molecule.
This biotech breakthrough has a mechanism of action validated by 25 years of research in stem cell science and regenerative medicine from the laboratory of Dr. Michael Kahn. The βSTEM6 molecule will be exclusively available in Michal Morrison products. The company was founded by Austin-based entrepreneur Michal Ann Morrison, who previously survived a Traumatic Brain Injury in 2016 and has since become a passionate advocate for people with disabilities. Michal’s experience became her inspiration to build a company dedicated to science, health, and the well-being of our communities.
βSTEM6 is a nextgen, patent-pending ‘metamolecule™’ that restores the self-rejuvenating power of our skin that has diminished over time. The result of over two decades of research in regenerative medicine and recent advances in stem cell science, βSTEM6 uses your biology’s inherent potential to extend cell longevity. As the first and only bioserum with βSTEM6, this molecular superpower works with the skin’s chemistry to awaken the millions of cells responsible for healthy-looking skin.
A formal and independent clinical study was conducted by one of the country’s preeminent board-certified dermatologists and President of Dermatology Consulting Services, PLLC, Dr. Zoe Draelos, M.D. The study demonstrated dramatic improvements in the multiple signs of skin aging such as facial lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity and uneven pigmentation. Following the eight-week study:
92% agreed skin texture is smoother and more refined
80% agreed skin looks firmer and lifted
80% agreed skin looks significantly clearer
80% agreed skin looks more luminous and radiant
80% agreed skin looks healthier and more youthful
Founder Michal Ann Morrison experienced years of frustration testing countless skincare products that never delivered the results they promised. Driven by her passion for science and entrepreneurial spirit, she began developing her own brand with a singular purpose: to revolutionize the beauty industry by developing science-first, performance-driven skincare with proprietary technology that delivers proven results.
The inspiration for the development of the company’s proprietary and patent-pending intellectual property, the βSTEM6 molecule, was Michal’s association with Dr. Fuqiang Ruan, an innovative scientist with a doctorate in Synthetic Organic Chemistry who had previously worked in Dr. Kahn’s laboratory. Dr. Michael Kahn is currently Professor of Cancer Biology and Molecular Medicine at the Beckman Research Institute, City of Hope.
The Genesis βSTEM6 Molecular Serum is available on michalmorrison.com for $175 in a premium recyclable glass bottle. The Genesis βSTEM6 Molecular Serum is also available for $140 through a 60-day replenishment program.

Timeline is a cellular health brand developed by the life sciences company, Amazentis. The company was founded on the belief that uncompromising research can unlock a new class of health backed by cutting-edge science. As scientists, the team knows that physical decline from aging can’t be stopped. However, through its groundbreaking research, Timeline is committed to developing products designed to help reduce the impact of time on health, from nutrition to skin and beyond.
Mitopure® is a highly pure form of Urolithin A, a post-biotic that is produced by gut bacteria after eating certain foods, such as pomegranates, though only 30% of people in the world get enough of this specialized nutrient from food alone. When ingested, Mitopure® has been shown to improve mitochondrial function by stimulating mitophagy, a process by which aging and damaged mitochondria are cleared from the cell, making way for healthy mitochondria to grow. Mitopure® has been favorably reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and deemed safe following a GRAS (generally recognized as safe) filing. Amazentis has previously published its research on Mitopure® Urolithin A in top peer-reviewed scientific journals such as Nature Medicine (doi:10.1038/nm.4132) and Nature Metabolism (doi: 10.1038/s42255-019-0073-4).
Hibernicis is an up-and-coming unisex skin and body-care brand dedicated to soothing and replenishing nutrients to both the body and mind. Founded by industry-veteran Catherine Logue in her homeland, Ireland, the brand also acts as an homage to the region’s cultural and historical heritage.
Inspired by Connemara, situated on the west coast of Ireland, the place is brimmed with an abundance of natural resources, which the brand obtains its ingredients from. Speaking on the conceptualization of the brand, Logue explains, “Hibernicis is an ode to Ireland, but developed to cater to all skin tones, types, and genders around the globe”.
The founder elaborates that “For me Ireland is an incredibly beautiful land with a fascinating and complex history and so I started the journey of developing a range which reflects how I feel about Ireland”. Hibernicis also lends its name from Latin, which translates to ‘from Ireland’, while its product offerings are all named in Gaelic.
Hibernicis currently offers five essential yet all-inclusive products, comprising of the Glan Bath + Shower Gel, Úr Exfoliating Gel, Athlíon Body Lotion, Síoda Body Serum, and Cara Hand Cream. Prices range from $39 – $95 USD, each featuring a skin-friendly and safe-to-use formulation infused with 95% naturally derived ingredients. Its star ingredient is seaweed extracts, a powerful skin-detoxifying antioxidant, which is also packed with vitamins K, B, A, and E for soothing, hydrating, and repairing effects.
A product that has been spotlighted by Logue is the Síoda Body Serum. The founder noted that the serum’s lightweight yet refreshing texture is inspired by her second home, Hong Kong, and its subtropical climate. As heavy moisturizers are not suitable for the city’s hot and humid air, Hibernicis’ quick-absorbent alternative is designed to hydrate skin on a cellular level without leaving a sticky-after-feel, complete with a therapeutic scent of jasmine and neroli.

‘You Make Me Feel, Mighty Real!’ Oh, how that lyric line sung by Sylvester, the Queen of Disco Sylvester over a gospel-tinged disco beat made those who heard and danced to it truly feel mighty. That one line can sum up the impact Sylvester had on a generation of club kids, an era of music.
January 13, 1979 – 44 Years Ago Today: Sylvester debuted at No. 85 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart with his single, ‘You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)’. It was written by James Wirrick and Sylvester, and released as the second single from Sylvester’s fourth album, Step II. The song was already a largely popular dance club hit in late 1978, as the B-side of his previous single ‘Dance (Disco Heat)’, before it was officially being released in December.
‘You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)’ was originally recorded as a mid-tempo piano-driven gospel song; however, after producer Patrick Cowley saw a rehearsal of the song at San Francisco’s City Club, he then offered to remix the song. The result was one of the pioneering disco records using some electronic instrumentation and effects, following closely on Donna Summers iconic ‘I Feel Love’ which heavily used electronic instrumentation ahead of its time. These 1970s songs using electronic instrumentation would have an influence on 1980s and 1990s dance music, which in turn, would have an influence on dance music in the next century.
In Sylvester’s home country, the single was billed on the Disco Top 100 Chart with ‘Dance (Disco Heat)’ and both singles were simultaneously No. 1. ‘Dance (Disco Heat)’ was his first Hot 100 entry the previous August and peaked at No. 19 on November 25, 1978. The song also reached No. 20 on the Billboard Hot Soul Singles Chart. The single was his second Top 40 hit, peaking at No. 36 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart in February 1979.
A 12″ single was released in 1978, with ‘Dance (Disco Heat)’ as the A-side and ‘You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)’ as the B-side, and these two extended dance mixes proved to be very popular in dance clubs at the time. The two songs held down the top spot on the Billboard Dance Disco Chart for six weeks in August and September 1978. These two songs helped to establish Sylvester’s career as a noted disco and dance music performer, both in the US and abroad. And we danced, and danced… He made us feel, mighty real.
Music critic Robert Christgau has said the song is “one of those surges of sustained, stylized energy that is disco’s great gift to pop music”. In 2003, Q Magazine included ‘You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)’ in their list of the ‘1001 Best Songs Ever’. In 2019, the song was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Recording Registery for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.
‘You Make Me Feel Mighty Real’ and Dance (Disco Heat) can both found on his iconic albums ‘Step II’ and ‘Living Proof’ (live album).
French Maison Lancôme is thrilled to announce the appointment of a new face of the brand, the American Gen Zer, fashion icon, entrepreneur, and girl of the 21st century, Emma Chamberlain.
With her engaging personality and relaxed demeanor, Emma became a global sensation by establishing herself as one of the most popular fashion icons and effortlessly cool content creator. Shortly after launching her YouTube channel at the age of 16, Emma broke into social media stardom at a very fast pace. The success of her social content gaining traction came from Emma demonstrating an authentic version of herself, which made her stand out as a disruptor in the crowded content creator space. Chamberlain’s fans don’t only find her content entertaining and filled with humor, but rather comforting, feeling that they are not alone in their journey.
Since then, Emma won the People’s Choice award Pop Podcast category and was acknowledged by Forbes, making it on the ’30 under 30 – Social Media’ list in 2021. With her mannerisms, her unique video editing was largely imitated, shaping a new vlogging style, by keeping it real.
Bringing her modernity and edge to the French Maison of beauty, Emma says: “I have always had my own notion of beauty and didn’t project myself within the beauty industry because of the duality that I show, mixing comfort, with being nicely put together. Hence why, when Lancôme came to me, I felt so honored and excited that the brand understood and appreciated who I am”.
Joining the Lancôme stellar group of ambassadors, Emma will add her irresistible wit and singularity. Together with Lancôme, Emma will further spread the brand’s values of positive and powerful beauty to invite a whole generation to shine inside out.
I am proud to welcome Emma to the Lancôme family. Beside achieving so much at such an early age, Emma is adored by a generation for the perspectives that she shares. We can only appreciate her humor, and the authentic tone used to discuss meaningful topics.
Françoise Lehmann, Lancôme International President
Besides being a renown content creator who openly addresses the issues of her generation, Emma also got into the realm of business and created her own brand called ‘Chamberlain Coffee’ in 2020. Being the voice of a generation, Emma runs her own podcast ‘Anything Goes with Emma Chamberlain’ where she remains unfiltered. With a social media following of almost 30M, Emma has become one of the most influential, relatable and popular personalities. She is a role model for her generation who lives by her own convictions.
Starring in the first ever Lancôme web series
Launching on January 12th on Lancôme’s YouTube channel, the unprecedented web series, ‘How do you say beauty in French’, is full of surprises and sometimes ambushes, showing Emma’s fresh perspective and modern humor. Within the 4-episode series, Emma expresses her perspective on self-image and shares her vision of beauty, while she uncovers the world of skincare and makeup.
The series reflects a new approach for Lancôme to move towards more engaging content that is designed to create entertaining and meaningful discussions online. Emma is well-versed to discuss subjects that matter to the Gen Z, has an unparallel ability to connect with her audience and speaks their language. Emma is a culture-shaper and a trendsetter with whom the brand can produce the unexpected and connect with consumers on various social media platforms.

A new icon. In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Fendi Baguette bag, a limited series of Tiffany & Co Baguette bags have been designed with the jewellers double T motif overlaying the signature Fendi FF buckle.
