Baltimore, Maryland, September 2014—The natural products industry converges at the sold-out Natural Products Expo East at the Baltimore Convention Center in September. The trade show, held this year from September 17 through 20, long dwarfed by its big sister Expo West, is developing into a show in its own right. More than 1,200 exhibitors show products at this sold-out event in Baltimore’s beautiful Convention Center. 

Attendance is up at both shows.

Expo West attracts attendees from all over United States and world. Expo East has become more of an Eastern region show, drawing from the Southeast by being in Baltimore.

The increase in exhibitors and attendees can be attributed to consumers’ insatiable demand for natural, organic, and healthy products. In addition to growing interest in healthy eating and special diets, other notable trends include GMO-free and transparency in labeling.

Atlanta, Georgia, June 2014— High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, or HBP, may be painless as it develops, but its effects on your health are incredibly dangerous.

In addition to damaging the lining of the arteries and increasing your risk of heart disease, hypertension also can cause heart failure, stroke and kidney disease, including kidney failure. It can boost your risk for dementia and, for men, cause erectile dysfunction.

Based on data from its scientifically-validated health risk assessment the RealAge Test, Sharecare, the online health and wellness engagement platform created by Dr. Mehmet Oz and WebMD founder Jeff Arnold, has identified 10 American cities where residents struggle most with hypertension: Greensboro, North Carolina; New Orleans; Memphis, Tennessee; Greenville, South Carolina; Louisville, Kentucky; St. Louis; Las Vegas, Nevada; Virginia Beach, Virginia; Buffalo, New York, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

How Clean is Your Laundry Detergent?

Friday, 26 September 2014 16:22
Tampa, Florida, September 2014 — Many consumer branded laundry detergents contain toxic ingredients, like diethanolamine, and a string of other chemicals with difficult to pronounce names. That being the case, it’s a good idea to understand the harmful potential that ingredients such as these can pose to you and your family.

For starters, it’s good that you know about potentially harmful ingredients NOT shown on the label—particularly Dioxane (1,4-dioxane). The Organic Consumers Association explains that 1,4-Dioxane is a by-product of the process called ethoxylation, a cheap shortcut many companies use to provide mildness (reduce risk of skin irritation) to harsh cleaning ingredients.

Many top laundry detergent brands contain this synthetic petrochemical, which the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers a probable carcinogen. This is a by-product contaminant of the manufacturing process and is not required to be listed on product labels.

Global Consumers Putting Their Money Where Their Heart Is

Wednesday, 30 July 2014 17:30
New York, NY, July 2014—A recent Nielsen poll finds that 55 percent of global online consumers in 60 countries say they would reward socially conscious companies with their shopping dollars. The propensity to buy socially responsible brands is strongest in Asia-Pacific (64%), Latin America (63%) and Middle East/Africa (63%). The numbers for North America and Europe are 42 and 40 percent, respectively.

Apparently, it’s no longer a question if consumers care about social impact. Consumers do care and show they do through their actions. Now the focus is on determining how a company’s brand can effectively create shared value by marrying the appropriate social cause to consumer segments.
“Consumers around the world are saying loud and clear that a brand’s social purpose is among the factors that influence purchase decisions,” said Amy Fenton, global leader of public development and sustainability, Nielsen. “This behavior is on the rise and it provides opportunities for meaningful impact in our communities, in addition to helping to grow share for brands.”
