will give invited guests the opportunity to get personal with 30 beauty lines hand-selected for their commitment to non-toxicity, performance, and luxury values.
At the helm of the event, taking place at White Space Chelsea
on April 18th
2016, are four leaders in the elevated beauty category elected to serve as brand ambassadors: Little Barn Apothecary, LURK Fragrance, Captain Blankenship, and Mullein and Sparrow
Participants will not only showcase their collection of cosmetics, fragrance, and skincare, but offer an opportunity for guests to touch, smell, and test their line during the event. Buyers, Editors, Makeup Artists, and Bloggers will walk through a curated luxury experience as they saunter from brand to brand sipping champagne, enjoying hors d’oeuvers, and being surrounded by modern art.
One of Elev8’s creators Amy Turner describes the experience as “an event for beauty lovers. A chance for the industry to step inside the green bubble of non-toxic beauty without stepping outside the world of luxury.”
Confirmed lines set to present include Soigne Nails, Privai Skincare, Axiology, Bottega Organica, Kahina Giving Beauty, Birch Rose, Osmia Organics, Svelta Tan, Earth Tu Face, La Bella Figura, Florescent and Strange Invisible Perfumes.

About Little Barn Apothecary.
Launched in January 2015 and based in Atlanta, Georgia, Little Barn Apothecary creates simple and modern apothecary goods from wild-harvested, certified organic ingredients. The luxurious line features soaks, washes, scrubs, oils, balms, candles, and more. Founders Joshua Morgan and Brad Scoggins handcraft each of Little Barn Apothecary’s goods at their studio from hand-select ingredients based on their intoxicating scents and unique healing properties. The effective formulations feature luxurious textures of natural exfoliants, organic butters, cold-pressed plant-based oils, and unique aromas centered on herbaceous, earthy tones. All ingredients are sourced in the U.S. Each product label is made from TerraSkin
—a tree-free, water-free material of rock and non-toxic resins that will eventually biodegrade under normal temperature, UV light and moisture conditions. By committing to whole and certified organic ingredients, Little Barn Apothecary creates goods from scratch that are 100% safe, naturally potent, and highly effective. The pure and plant-based, unisex products are available internationally through the brand’s online shop and at over two hundred top spas and shops around the world, including Free People, Alternative Apparel, Gene Juarez Salons and Spas, Bridge and Burn, Anomie, Love Adorned, The Stell, East of the Mississippi, and many more.
LURK was founded by Anne Nelson Sanford, a perfumer, product development specialist, designer and creative director with a background in beauty marketing, branding and design. The brand compounds each scent using only organic, sustainable, CO2 extracted and wild-crafted oils and hexane-free absolutes to create products of purity and beauty to evoke not only sophistication but a unique sensorial experience. This strict adherence to high standards has yielded groundbreaking luxury-organic fragrances that demonstrate complexity, relevance and depth.
About Captain Blankenship.
Living with the tides and stars, with the smell of the oceans and forests, is medicine for the body and spirit. Captain Blankenship was born out of Jana Blankenship’s desire to create organic beauty products that create a direct link with nature. Cold pressed organic plant oils, flowers, seaweeds, sea salt and organic essential oils bring us back to the primacy of experience with the land and sea. These ingredients not only conjure the natural world, but are highly beneficial for our skin, body, hair and senses.
Our mantra at Captain Blankenship is ‘beauty wild with nature’. We are a small, women-run company in the Hudson River Valley that makes products that are luxurious and honest. We formulate our products with only organic and wild-harvested ingredients that are domestically grown when possible. We never use synthetic preservatives, parabens, sulfates or “fragrance.” We use recyclable and reusable glass packaging, making a positive environmental impact. We test on ourselves and never on animals. We believe in transparency in every aspect of our line.
