This weekend we are celebrating Global Beauty to shine a light on the beauty trends, traditions and exotic ingredients that QVC have sourced from around the world. We have asked beauty experts from some of your favourite brands to give us a little history of their companies and tell us about the unique ingredients that make your favourite products so special.
PRAI products are all based around the use of the exotic prai root from Thailand. This amazing plant has unique properties, which make it perfect for skincare. Here is a video showing the story of the prai root and the background of the PRAI brand.

Ojon oil is nature’s golden elixir – a rare and powerful natural ingredient that’s rich in essential lipids, similar to those found in healthy hair. I made this discovery many years ago in the remote tropical rainforests of Central America.
Today, it is still hand-harvested and extracted as it has been for over 500 years. In one year a single ojon tree produces less than 8,000 nuts, enough to supply just three cups of ojon oil.
First the nut cluster is cut from the Ojon tree, then the clusters are then stacked in the hot sun to dry. The individual nuts are then hand-picked from the cluster and simmered in a pot of boiling water to soften the orange outer shell, the peel is completely removed by hand and the brown nut inside is washed. We take out the kernel and cook it over an open fire until the precious elixir is extracted, then poured into a glass bottle and becomes a velvety paste as it cools.
Now after years of searching for the next ingredient, Ojon has discovered another remedy to dry, damaged hair, Rouge Olifera extract, with protective and reparative benefits yet to be discovered.
Tune in for Ojon today to find out more!

The creator, famous Parisian beauty therapist Jeanne Gatineau, started out by making her own at home products to give to her clients. Her reputation for making beautiful and innovative skincare quickly grew and soon she was collaborating with some of the most influential bio-chemists of the time.
Using her beauty therapy expertise combined with cutting edge technology, Gatineau quickly grew into the trusted brand we know today. That concept has remained all these years – science and beauty therapy working together to create skincare that is as pleasurable to use as it is effective.
Gatineau remains one of the most highly regarded brands in France and is used by beauty therapists in over 80 countries around the world. Speaking as a beauty therapist myself, I have seen first-hand the amazing results clients have achieved with Gatineau, and long may it continue!
