SAN MATEO, Calif., Jan. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — BFA Industries, a beauty innovation platform home to IPSY, BoxyCharm, and brand incubator Madeby Collective, is continuing to reinvent the way consumers shop and discover new products with the launch of ‘Refreshments’, a clean, cruelty-free and 100% vegan product line that includes a hand and body cream, body wash, face wipes, and a newly launched razor kit and shave cream. The collection breaks through the clutter with a fresh-take on personal care that is bold, vibrant and full of personality, and is anything but boring.

“Beauty and makeup have long been associated with self-expression and experimentation, while personal care has lagged far behind,” said Sabeen Mian, SVP of Refreshments. “With Refreshments, we wanted to inject fun and personality into the bathroom with products that anyone and everyone can feel good about using. Every product in the line is formulated without parabens, phthalates, sulfates, gluten and nut allergens, and is cruelty-free and 100% vegan. All of our products are clinically, allergy, and dermatologist tested. Plus, at least 30% of every product container is made out of post-consumer recycled plastic, and we are deeply committed to increasing this percentage over time.”

Refreshments delivers an engaging, customizable member experience that leverages IPSY’s strength in machine learning technology and rich member data to pinpoint consumer preferences and signal opportunities to meet long-unfulfilled needs. The brand quietly piloted a members-only subscription option to a small portion of IPSY’s 3M+ members in November, and received over 150,000 sign-ups within the first 30 days.

To celebrate the launch, Refreshments has teamed up with Jonathan Adler and The Skinny Confidential on a sweepstakes to give away a $750 Jonathan Adler gift card to jazz up the winner’s bathroom, the entire Refreshments collection and a full-year subscription to IPSY Glam Bag Plus.

Refreshments are available a la carte on or via subscription to IPSY members, who will be able to customize their order frequency and assortment each month, personalized for their unique routines. The collection includes:

  • NEW! Luxe Razor Starter Kit: Featuring a razor handle, shower holder, and two 5-blade cartridges. {Exclusive member pricing | $11 MSRP}
