A new vegan brand called “Ace of Air” was launched recently with the ambitious mission of setting a new zero-waste precedent in the beauty and wellness industry.
It was founded by vegan supermodel Petra Němcová in association with former Revlon executive Stephanie Stahl, and finance professional David Knowlton.
“ Ace of Air” offers a system where customers “buy the product, borrow the package”—meaning customers receive a returnable box where they fill with empty containers, and once consumed they return to the company creating to create a waste-free model so that its packaging does not end polluting the eco-system.
“In the fall of 2017, we began creating the business of our dreams—an uplifting, inclusive brand for women and men designed to have a positive impact on people and our planet with powerfully nourishing skincare and supplement products, We did this, not because we thought the world needs another beauty and wellness brand. It doesn’t. We did this because our planet needs a beauty and wellness brand that fundamentally changes what and how we consume.”Stephanie Stahl
The brand’s formulas are made with natural wild-harvested and fair-trade ingredients. It is made without parabens, silicones, sulfates, formaldehyde, mineral oil, petroleum, phthalates, and allergens such as gluten, wheat, or artificial binders, and fillers. Ace of Air’s first eight products includes two serums, two moisturizers, and four supplements designed to support gut health, promote firmer skin, and provide a boost of Omega fatty acids—all made without animal products or testing.
“Our products are expertly formulated at the intersection of herbalist wisdom and modern science, focusing on products that work from the inside out, and are deeply holistic on every level,” Němcová said. “We work with a brilliant group of experts including dermatologists, herbalists, naturopaths, nutritionists, natural pharmacists, and environmentalists to formulate products that uplift our bodies, as well as people and planet, through the entire value chain.”
Ace of Air’s line products are priced between $35 to $85 and the brand is currently taking pre-orders and will begin shipping in four to six weeks.
