Shōmei means "illumination" in Japanese.
Cosmedica Skincare (http://www.cosmedica-skincare.com/) is our parent company, but we want a natural / organic look and feel to our logo and brand...
Cosmedica Skincare has a very sterile, and medical look and feel. We want to get away from this.
This is exactly what we are producing here... same product, same bottles / containers, same spray caps, box sizes, and label sizes. Essentially our product will be in these same containers, but we'll be able to change the design on the box and the paper stock: http://www.cosmedica-skincare.com/c…ctions/all
Here is a site we have been using for inspiration: http://www.thedieline.com/beauty-he…-packaging

Simple design is is good.
Use 3 colors maximum for a color pallet. Anything more than that gets distracting.

5. Osmia Organics
Its namesake, osmia, which translate to “sense of smell”, is telling of Osmia Organicsattention to the scent and aromatherapeutic benefits of its products.

Butter London makes a line of “3-free” polishes which are free from formaldehyde, toluene, and Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP)—three ingredients found in most nail lacquers. They mix great colors including this great sparkly purple in honor of the upcoming royal wedding, a sparkly purple, “No More Waity, Katie.”
I just heard about this small, Brooklyn-based company that is only a year old and got so excited about what they do. Everything owner and founder Adina makes is completely natural and is made up of ingredients that you can find at the supermarket (or rather, the organic green market). It’s the way it should be, made once a week in small batches, using glass jars and supporting local, sustainable farms.
My friend Julia got a Tammy Fender facial at her Skin Care Center and she has been raving about their products ever since. Tammy’s extensive line is not only about healing the skin, but also about relaxation and inner healing. All of her all-natural products have both a physical and emotional aspect.
Patyka is a French brand that has two product lines—Absolis (body washes, facial cleansers and creams), and Biokaliftin (anti-wrinkle serums and the like)—that are pretty intense. Just look at their website; each and every product has an extensive list of all of the natural active ingredients and the wonders they do for your skin. And to top it off, the packaging is gorgeous.
These oils and creams are made from natural ingredients that are sustainably sourced. Their Body Scrub is made with a combination of ingredients made especially to energize you after a long, stressful day. They also have an all-new line of creams and serums harvested from the Amazonian rainforest. We sell Ila on goop.
