Escentials Brands is a refreshingly elegant mover and shaker in the retail beauty industry here in Australia, with strong hero brands.

The concept of ‘showings’, whereby a distributor or retailer shows a number of brands under one roof, for media to see, smell, experience the new launches works well and it was this format that Escentials took for its brands’ latest product news.
