Here’s your weekly recap: the most viewed stories on our site for the week ending August 13, 2022.

Last week, beloved Arkay Chairman Emeritus Howard Kaneff died at the age of 91. Howard, the father of Arkay CEO Mitchell Kaneff, took over the business when his own father – Max Kaneff, who founded Arkay Printing in 1922 – died suddenly in 1962. He remained active in the industry even after his retirement in 2004.

In skincare news, Alicia Keys, in partnership with dermatologist Dr. Renée Snyder, introduced Keys Soulcare’s first SPF skincare offering: Protect Your Light Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30.

Additionally, Uber Technologies Inc. and The Body Shop have expanded their partnership to include nearly all of the beauty company’s retail stores across the United States. This expansion brings new locations to the Uber platform and allows consumers in new cities, including Illinois, Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania and even Alaska and Hawaii, to purchase The Body Shop products through Uber Eats.
