Samson & Charlie’s new release: FAMOUS 24k Glow Facial Oil is an ultra-opulent face oil that will catapult your skin to celebrity status. Launching on August 1st online currently available for presale at now. This dreamy blush pink face oil with real 24 karat gold flakes resides in a super sleek, clear glass bottle, making it not only Insta-worthy, but an amazing anti-ageing secret that doesn’t belong hidden on your beauty shelf. FAMOUS needs to be in pride of place, on centre stage. Famous 24k Glow Facial Oil is intoxicating to look at, you’ll be almost too scared to open it, but wait until you smell it. With a superfruit cocktail of powerful antioxidants including Watermelon Seed Oil, Kiwi and Blueberry Seed Oil, this powerful fruit cocktail fights wrinkle and age spot-inducing free radicals to create clearer, brighter skin with the added benefit of a fresh, delicate fruity floral finish. Blending some of the world’s most luxurious absolutes of Pink Lotus, Rose, Neroli and Champaca, this delicate oil creates an unforgettable, sensory-rich experience. It’s the world’s most attractive, effective and luscious face oil yet. Off the heels of the sold-out success of THE GIFT Balancing Facial Oil, the brand’s founders knew their customers had high expectations for their first anti-aging oil. “I absolutely fell in love with Watermelon seed Oil, and there was not one Watermelon based Facial oil on the market,” said founder Carole Staeck. “After researching its unique properties; we made Famous with a delicious combination of rare and exquisite super fruit seed oils that boast powerful anti-aging properties as well as edible aromatic qualities. When I discovered this gap in the market, I just had to create this unique, delicious blend. Whilst the value of gold in skincare is well recognised for its anti-aging benefits, not to mention its ultra-chic look, most products boasting gold don’t include real gold at all, just gold-coloured mica. For Famous, Samson & Charlie sourced their pure gold locally through one of the most reputable Australian Manufacturer. It’s made in Melbourne, and the gold originates from the Perth Mint to ensure it is pure, genuine 24 karat gold leaf, priced at $168 per gram. 24 karat gold leaf holds the highest concentration of gold per part, which ensures once the mineral’s properties are absorbed into the skin, producing the maximal anti-aging benefits. These include slowing collagen depletion, increasing elasticity and brightening the delicate skin of the face. Famous 24k Glow Facial Oil is enriched with regenerating boosters as well as the gold leaf to increase collagen cell turnover, leaving skin firmer and brighter. Vitamins C, B and E, as well as Omega 3 & 6 simultaneously provide an anti-inflammatory barrier to protect skin from the daily insults of pollution, weather and chemicals. “It feels ultra-light like a serum, but acts deep within your skin as an oil,” said Carole. “I wanted to give busy women a lavish, deeply hydrating, anti-ageing versatile product that would work all day so their foundation wouldn’t look dry by 5pm. Famous is perfect for face, lips and layering under makeup.” The Famous 24k Glow Facial Oil works deep within the skin thanks to baby soft Camelia and Squalane oil, formulated to penetrate the skin’s dermal layers. Fractionated coconut oil is also used as it’s able to penetrate much deeper. “After months in development perfecting the formula, we are so proud to share this super fruit cornucopia of nature’s most delicious creations in a bottle. It looks so luxurious with the glistening gold floating in it. I was listening to Spotify when I was creating it, and ‘Famous’ by Ivy Adara came on. That settled it, we had to call it ‘Famous!’” said Carole.

Kind regards, Kylie Galbraith Seftons Tamworth NSW 2340 Ph. 0411 480 208 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ CAPTION: Brandon Stannett has taken on a new role heading up the Case IH and New Holland brands. MEDIA RELEASE CNH Industrial announces new structure for Australian ag machinery market CNH Industrial has announced a restructure of its agricultural machinery business in Australia and New Zealand, with the appointment of a new leader across both the Case IH and New Holland Agriculture brands. Brandon Stannett has been appointed the Managing Director – Agriculture, Australia and New Zealand, assuming responsibility for CNH Industrial’s Agriculture Segment from Michele Lombardi, in a new position created as part of a global restructure announced in January. At that time CNH Industrial revealed changes to its organisational structure across the five segments of its operations, in a bid to become closer to its customers, streamline decision-making processes and encourage faster and more market-focused innovations. Brandon has been leading CNH Industrial’s captive finance business in Australia and New Zealand for the past 4 years, which he said offered the advantage of a strong knowledge of the local market when it came to his new role. “It’s certainly an advantage already knowing the Case IH and New Holland Agriculture teams and having those existing relationships, and I look forward to the opportunities this new structure offers both brands, our dealers and our customers,” he said. “Taking a fresh look at our engagement with both dealers and customers will be a priority. The local Ag sector has had more than its share of challenges in recent times, so the time is right to refocus and re-invigorate our approach to products, services and support, together with business and network efficiencies. “CNH Industrial, through our Case IH and New Holland Agriculture brands, are global leaders in the agricultural equipment and products sector and are always looking to the future with advances such as automation, connectivity and alternative fuels that will be the foundations for the next generation of advances in farm productivity and efficiency. This restructure has come about because our industry is experiencing a period of accelerated change – automation and digital technology being key examples – so we need to make the changes that will secure our reputation for innovation and excellence into 2020 and beyond. “I’m privileged to be leading this process across Australia and New Zealand for CNH Industrial and know that we have the teams in place with the knowledge, passion and foresight to make some real differences where it matters: innovative products and market-leading agricultural solutions.” Brandon has a strong financial background, working in senior roles in some of Australia’s largest banks, and founding a financial consultancy practice and leasing business, before joining CNH Industrial.

HEMPLE LAUNCHES IN THE USA 2019-07-15T00:00:08Z hemple-launches-in-the-usa FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Monday 15 July 2019 Following a recent investment from MMJ (ASX:MMJ), Australian hemp & cannabinoid brand, Hemple, has launched in the USA. The millennial founders, Cade Turland (31) and Forbes 30 Under 30 list-maker, Georgia Branch (30) are de- termined to carve out their piece of the world’s biggest CBD market, projected to be worth US$22bn by 2022. The team is being on beer delivery technology for their organically grown CBD and innovation through first-to-market, functional CBG and CBN formulations to set their brand apart. Their Australian Cold Pressed Hemp Seed Oil and US grown and made, Sigma N-Osmo CBD have already made it into the hands of the Kardashian’s. Both products featured in the most recent Travel Mailer which landed Hemple in social media feeds of Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Selma Blair, Shanina Shaik and Behati Prinsloo. As Facebook and Instagram continue to disallow ingestible hemp foods and CBD advertising, the founders see this style of organic social media endorsement as key to reaching their millennial consumer - a fast growing segment of the hemp CBD market. Brightfield Group dubs the 26-35 year old CBD user group as “stressed out millennials”. This group accounts for 38.2% of the total US CBD market. More than half the members of this segment have a household income of US $50,000+ and are looking to relieve the pressures and stresses of their busy young professional lives, turning to hemp CBD to relieve a range of emotional health issues, most prominently: anxiety, depression and insomnia. Co-Founder, Georgia Branch, says, “There’s over 5600 CBD tincture brands in the USA. We’re breaking away from the commoditised products which dominate the market. Our approach is to differentiate with a premi- um brand position that’s backed up by truly innovative, effective products targeted towards the needs of our customer. Each of our products will have a specific functional benefit - from stress management (like our first CBD release, Sigma) to sleep.” Turland continues, “We’re one of few companies in the US using nano-technology to improve the absorp- tion rate of cannabinoids. Similarly to vitamins, only 10-30% of most CBD edibles and tinctures are absorbed by the body. The technology used in our N-Osmo cannabinoid range increases absorption to over 90%. Ulti- mately, this means beer value for money for the customer.” Value for money maers, as Brightfield Group shows 41.3% of this group are taking some form of CBD to manage everyday pressures, 5-7 days per week. On 29 July in the US, Hemple will launch with Fleur Marche, dubbed the “Sephora of CBD”. In Australia, Hemple’s range of hemp foods products are listed in over 350 health and specialty stores including Flan- nery’s and Healthy Life.
