CALGARY, Alberta, April 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Aqua+ Skincare was recognized for Excellence of the Year for Leadership and Sustainability / Health & Beauty / Canada at the IAIR Awards® ceremony on the 14th April at the Yale Club in New York. Selected by IAIR readers and opinion leaders in business from around the world, the honor is awarded to those who represent IAIR's mission to promote business excellence.
"I am honoured to be receiving this award," said Michael Wong, Aqua+ Skincare's Chief Executive Officer. "We always focus on finding the right balance of economic sustainability, environmental care and social responsibility. We believe this is something that young chemists and skincare companies should always keep in mind. As you may know, air pollution is the main source of damage to the skin. Smog, dirt and dust in the air can clog pores, cause acne and give skin a dull appearance. Unfortunately, 80% of the world's population is exposed to harmful air pollutants. Basically our PM zero anti-pollution cream creates a shield on the skin that protects against that harmful damage from PM2.5."
"Going forward, our goal is to specifically target research on climate change and environmental pollution and its damaging effect to human skin; and to develop solutions based on the findings," continued Wong. "Climate change and air pollution have become more of a threat and as a result, skin and body health care is an emerging issue on a global basis."
