A former Roman Catholic monk has filed a federal lawsuit seeking unspecified damages against cosmetics giant L’Oreal, accusing the company of stealing patented technology in an antiaging wrinkle cream that his charity was selling to raise money for the poor. Dennis Wyrzykowski and his company, Carmel Laboratories LLC, have been joined in the lawsuit by the University of Massachusetts Medical School, which developed the technology and licensed it to Carmel in 2009. According to the lawsuit, the cream, called Easeamine, is made using technology inspired by a discovery by two UMass scientists that adenosine, a chemical compound found in the heart, can promote skin elasticity.

- Suite Spot: The Hideaway, Carmel
By Jeanne Cooper - Friday Jun 2, 2017
Among PlumpJack’s newer lodging appellations is Carmel, where the 24-room Hideaway debuted last spring. On a semi-residential stretch of tree-lined Junipero Street, just two blocks from bustling Ocean Avenue. PlumpJack’s active partners, Hilary Newsom and Jeremy Scherer, teamed with real estate developers SMeriwether Companies and hired Napa design firm Shopworks to help transform the former Cobblestone Inn motel. The results include bright, uncluttered interiors with bold swaths of wood and leather; compact but gleaming Euro-modern bathrooms; and a handsome fireplace lounge, where staff lays out the complimentary gourmet Continental breakfast and evening wine with cheese and antipasti. Insider’s tips: A five-minute walk away on San Carlos Street, counter-service Carmel Belle (a Hilary Newsom fave) offers healthful, often locally sourced breakfast, lunch and dinner; 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday is game night. Some king rooms offer a sofa bed, although floor space is tight when the bed is in use; it’s better to pay an extra $20 to have the sofa bed in a separate sitting area.
