We’ve Met Our Match

It’s not every day that a handsome, accomplished Frenchman enters our life.  So, of course Loomis & I played it très cool when we met Beautycounter’s new Head of Product Development, Xavier Ormancey.

(Please note for ONCE, I do NOT have a drink in my hand — ahem, Loomis!)


I mean, the dude moved from Paris all the way to Santa Monica.  He deserves a warm welcome, right? (my mother is cringing).

Also, I may or may not have also been speaking French to him.


I mean, the guy has given a Tedx Paris talk for goodness sakes!

In all seriousness, Xavier is kind of a big deal.  His previous experience includes product development and leadership positions at some places you may have heard of…

The X-man, as his friends refer to him (not really) is best known for his view that

living plants and the human body can and do interact in beneficial ways – including in personal care products when carefully developed for such balancing functionality.


On that note, he has developed an innovative new lotion for us that launches today.  We got a super-secret sneak peek sample of it last month.  I have to say it’s pretty-freaking-amazing.

The best way I could describe it was that I put it on in the morning, I literally felt refreshed and radiant, all day long.  Here’s why:

My skin had that sort of glow that makes people wonder if I had something done….


(I didn’t!)
