[ 72 ] • DAYSPA • april 2017 HOW DO YOU INCORPORATE ELEMENTS OF NATURE INTO YOUR SPA? building blocks quick question RETAIL ROCKSTAR THE PRO Mahvash Kamran, co-owner THE SPA Rejuvenation Clinic Day Spa in Little Rock, Arkansas THE STAR Jane Iredale PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation WHY IT ROCKS "This foundation is really more of a skincare product than makeup. It's oil-free; vegan; made from water- resistant, micronized minerals; and is free of synthetic chemicals. Clients love it because it's weightless and glides onto their skin, offers full coverage and contains SPF. It also doesn't cause breakouts, so it's ideal for people with sensitive or reactive skin," says Kamran. "I've been carrying Jane Iredale makeup at my spa for 15 years, and I've found that these products help me establish loyal customers who return to purchase them again and again." Mindy Biggar owner The Spa West 9th Street Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada We consider ourselves a green spa, therefore it's important to us that we support green practices. We select Certifi ed Organic products for our professional services and retail shelves whenever possible, and take time to thoroughly research ingredients and products to ensure their safety for staff, clients and the environment. Outside the spa, we support local organizations and projects that enhance our green space and community. We have donated tree seedlings to a nearby school to enhance their outdoor learning center, and our spa sponsors a local competitive fi shing team and organization that practices a catch and release policy for all of their tournaments. " " Mother Nature is the inspiration and backbone of our spa. Our facials and body services all feature products and essential oils from the botanical Sisley-Paris line, which is rooted in phyto-cosmetology: isolating the most effective parts of plants and adding them to skincare formulations. We believe that providing guests with products containing plant-based extracts will help reveal their skin's natural radiance. Adriana Goglas spa manager The Sisley Spa at The Carlyle Hotel New York City " " Our space was designed to refl ect the beauty and tranquility of Arizona's Havasupai Falls. As guests pass through the three levels of our spa, the color of the stone walls becomes darker to mimic the changing hues seen during a trek into Havasupai. Our outdoor grotto and stone waterfalls also pay homage to the Falls. Within treatments, many of the essential oils, scrubs and lotions we use tap into earthy scents—including wild chaparral, sage, canyon pine, mountain arnica and Coffee Arabica—that leave guests feeling at one with nature. Robert Vance managing director Well & Being Spa at The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Scottsdale, Arizona " " Want to be quoted in DAYSPA?
