NEW YORK, December 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Emerging brands will be a key feature of the HBA Global Expo Honest Beauty blog. Every month. Mary Palmieri, the editor of Honest Beauty, will select an up-and-coming beauty product that has unique attributes and efficacy as well as a compelling background story.

Since I started penning Honest Beauty, I've come across so many unique products that aren't being pushed by major marketing and promotional campaigns. These products are authentic and have amazing development stories, said Ms. Palmieri. By platforming them on the HBA Honest Beauty blog, I hope that these products get the recognition they deserve.

The Honest Beauty blog,, is part of the HBA Global events website. HBA Global Expo Conference, taking place September 28-30, 2010 at the Javits Center in New York, New York, is the largest product development event for the entire beauty community including the cosmetics, fragrance, skin care, personal care and naturals markets.

The HBA Global website features worldwide suppliers, educational content, industry resources, and event highlights. In addition, The Honest Beauty blog is distributed via e-mail to more than 50,000 opt-in beauty professionals including product development teams from major brand manufacturers including Avon, COTY, Estee Lauder, Johnson Johnson, L'Oreal, Procter Gamble, and Unilever. International industry suppliers, media, academics, and market analysts also receive the blog.

Every month, a new breakout brand will be selected for its honestly effective product line, standout attributes as well as company background and philosophy including unique packaging, philanthropy and special ingredients.

En Pointe Skin Solutions by Dr. Christine Rodgers, was October's Breakout Brand in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As a breast cancer survivor and celebrated plastic surgeon, Dr. Rodgers has intimate knowledge of the common skin and body problems that develop with aging, cancer treatment, cancer recovery, and hormone-related conditions. Having worked with countless patients, studying the skin for years, Dr. Rodgers developed En Pointe Skin Solutions to focus not just on the skin's surface, but also the skin's composition.

In November, Navajo Skin Care ( was profiled by Honest Beauty for its Walking in The Beauty Way philosophy emphasizing the need for harmony between people, nature, land, and the spiritual world. Besides using only natural, food grade preservatives in its formulation, Navajo Skincare is also an official partner with Navajo Nation and they donate substantial portions of their profits for the benefit of the Navajo People.
