Organic All-Natural Z-Skin-Cosmetics Hand-Made by a Pop Star

blogZSkinad5

 

 

I’m happy I had the chance to try several products from the handmade skin care line by pop star and entrepreneurial wiz-kid founder of Z Skin Cosmetics Ryan Zamo.  Right away, I thought finally, just what I’ve been looking for in a moisturizer, and I began wishing that I’d had these fresh, clean products years ago.

As an artist-painter working with my hands and lots of materials every day, I’m always on the look-out for a good hand cleaner– and I’ve tried many.  At the end of a long day in my studio, nothing beats the pleasure of cleaning up with Z Skin Cosmetic’s high-quality Coffee Almond Hand Scrub or Z’s soothing Sesame Ginger hand scrub. Both excellent! Plus I’m using the Z’s Miracle Extreme Moisturizer, which I’ll love having during the coming winter months, as well as the Z Skin Cosmetic’s Eye Cream and Nighttime eye cream,  all lovingly created by a real artist.

blogZfaceJulieCArtistZ Skin Cosmetics was born just 4 months ago and has already been recognized with multiple awards and critical acclaim for its all natural, 100% organic hand-made quality that has been proven to be more successful than any of those expensive products!  Zamo’s been called “The Creator Of The Next Proactiv” by the Wall-Street Journal, and his products called the “Best New Affordable Skincare Line” by the Daily Herald, and “Product Of The Year” by the Daily News, and The LA Times says his “New Organic Skincare Line Works Better Than Proactiv And Clinique”.

Zamo may be something of a contemporary renaissance man, hand making his products, including the labels, and single-handedly doing all his own photography, graphic design and web design. He combines pure ingredients into his products and transparently lists each on his site here.

And he demonstrates, in this just under 15 minute video, of how he creates one of his products by hand–

Zamo also conveys his personal story as honestly as he makes his products–openly telling how he turned his struggles with drugs and alcohol into an international success story. Two years ago Ryan Zamo was a drug addict and on the verge of dying. He was finally checked into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program for 90 days in January 2013, and today we are proud to report he has stayed clean and sober since.

When Ryan Zamo was finally back on his feet, he got to take a good look at himself again “my skin was terrible, I was way too skinny and I knew I had to do something about it”, he says. So Ryan started on his journey to organic food and products to help nourish himself back to health.

Ryan Zamo described how he started making skin care for himself to try to win his never-ending battle with acne. “After I realized I actually created an amazing organic product, I sized up my competition and realized I could price it at $250 or more… then, I saw that I could finally help others the way I was helped, with personal interest and care, that’s why I priced my products $15 and under!”  stated the young CEO.  Ryan Zamo also spends hours a day speaking with his customers to help them pick the exact products to use, and follows up with them as much as possible to give them suggestions and answer any questions they have.

We mentioned at the beginning of this article that Ryan Zamo is also a pop star. He recently appeared in the MTV singing show Copycat and also released a new CD (his 4th) on iTunes, with songs that didn’t make the cut on his first and third albums–here’s the link to get his tracks on iTunes.

With his dedication to helping others with affordable products and personal consultation it seems Ryan Zamo has just stepped into his upcoming success. And I have more products I’m trying that I will tell you about next time.

How ArtWorld and Artist Marketing Resources Work Jointly With Artists in Mexico, the Netherlands, USA and Internationally

 

Keith McFarlane, creator and developer of the ArtWorld app, and Marie Kazalia, Artist Agent and owner of Artist Marketing Resources are making joint efforts to connect artists with curators and collectors using both the app and e-postcard marketing plans to bring more visibility for artists internationally.

McFarlane recently met three artists who are represented on the ArtWorld app at the Window Gallery in Amsterdam, an exhibition space made available by the well-known arts patron and Amsterdam gallerist Ella Arps.  McFarlane met Mexican artist Xavier Yarto there and took home a painting on paper by Yarto, which now hangs framed in McFarlane’s space, as shown in the photos below.

Artist Marketing Resources and the ArtWorld continue to make efforts to connect with more artists in Mexico, such as Mexico City sculptor Luz Zaga Vaca whose two sculptural works are depicted on e-postcards here.

As part of this joint effort, when artists participate in either E-Postcard Marketing Plan A  or E-Postcard Marketing Plan B  they will also gain visibility with a free ArtWorld app account and are welcomed on the Artworld community page on Facebook.

All artists, art lovers and collectors are invited to download the Artworld app in the iTunes App Store.

 

For further details on the E-postcard marketing plans contact Marie Kazalia, Artist Marketing Resources, email: MarieKazalia@gmail.com

NEW! ARTOLO Site

Just two days ago, I received an invitation to do early Beta-testing of the new Artolo fine art sales site. Although the Artolo site owner Tom Brereton Downs said I would likely find bugs at this first new stage of site access, I encountered no problems when I created my portfolio, entered the dimensions of my artwork, and the sales prices. I did note that all dimensions are in centimeters and I could only input my prices in British pounds. I do not yet know if these features will expand in future, but I do like Tom’s art sales philosophy.

Tom sent me lots of materials, including logos and a brochure, and wrote, in part:

Marie

You have a great blog going there. Very useful for artists. We’d love you to tell your followers about Artolo.

We’re not entirely prepped for pushing out as we’re very much in the phase of developing the platform in partnership with a small group of users (including you!).

Essentially we’re on a mission to disrupt the art market and make it far more accessible to the average person. Most people find galleries, artspeak and the whole process of engaging with work pretty terrifying… Artolo is our attempt to address this. We would like to see a world where most people are comfortable buying original art (just as they are buying cars, furniture, music etc.) and, as such, a world in which artists can quite easily sustain their practice and not constantly worrying whether they will make another sale.

Core to Artolo are relationships and location. Relationships, in that we believe success for artists will come through building meaningful/authentic connections to people (not hiding behind galleries, obtuse language etc.). And locations, in that, we think seeing art for real and meeting artists for real is core to building these connections.

The Artolo platform will be changing and developing considerably over the coming weeks as we add new features and take feedback along the way. It would be great to hear your ideas and thoughts. We really want to make Artolo something that can make a real difference to artists and not be yet another vanity platform.

Artist Marketing Resources blog will be one of the first to inform you when Artolo opens to all artists.

Artist accounts on Artolo are free.

Tom Brereton Down’s brochure asks, Where do you go if you want to buy art?  For many, even those with a reasonable disposable income, prints from the likes of Ikea(probably the world’s largest art supplier) is a safe, if unadventurous, option. Others might be lucky and find a piece of art whilst on summer holiday. Even luckier are those who have friends or family who are artists. Only the relatively sophisticated art-buyer can claim to not to be, at least a little, intimidated by galleries.

Artolo proposes some interesting solutions, that include:

Allowing Amateur dealing: buyers and collectors will *refresh* their collections by reselling work via Artolo, and then purchasing new work (at lower than gallery prices) from emerging artists on Artolo.

Unlike the current range of sites(which expect buyers to purchase work by only seeing a photograph). Artolo encourages the buyer to see the work in a real location and then make a purchase through the Artolo payment system.

Artolo wants to become a ‘game-changer’ in the multi-billion pound art market. Using web, location and social marketing technology Artolo will revolutionize the art market in the way that iTunes has revolutionized music, Amazon has books and YouTube has video…

A PLATFORM FOR ALL–ARTOLO IS FOR EVERYONE
EVERYWHERE IS A GALLERY–core to their proposition is to make it easy for any location to be a site for selling artwork.

ARTOLO IS FOREVER–A piece of work need never leave the Artolo site…it will just exchange hands. The new owner can choose to have the work remain listed for offer. In time we expect Artolo to become a registration base for all art around the world.
