OLD WORLD, NEW WORLD
Some pretty special new products have just arrived at WORLD Beauty stores.
We're talking old world favourites that have been around for more than a hundred years.
Fancy a bit of history with your morning ablutions? Try the world's first toothpaste, Botot.
Invented in 1755 for King Louis the XV of France, this certified natural formula is still a bestseller today.
Other old world products include shave cream, mouth wash and Florentine rosewater.
LOVE THY HAIR
Believe it or not, it matters what you brush your hair with.
Harsh plastics can damage the hair cuticle, leaving it dull and brittle.
VIA's new rosewood brushes are especially designed to glide through the hair and leave it shiny and smooth.
Available from pharmacies in small, medium and paddle styles, from $25.99.
