36 @dayspamagazine • April 2019 We've always used professional skincare and makeup lines that are free from parabens, synthetic fragrance, endocrine disrupters and xenoestrogens. But as clients become more aware of certain ingredients, our goal is now to provide more information about clean products, and how using them can help clear up the skin. I'm also a certifi ed holistic weight loss expert and nutrition coach, and we're putting together little workshops on nutrition and skin care, focusing on how a healthy diet can help people glow from within. Unfortunately, Northwest Indiana residents aren't typically very green, so we also try to educate them about how to be more conscious of the environment. It differentiates us from other spas in the area, which serves to make our business more successful. Jill Sullivan Spa manager and licensed master esthetician The Color Room Salon and Day Spa Crown Point and Dyer, Indiana Especially in the past year, we've seen guests really studying product labels, so we've started adding unique lines like Dr. Dennis Gross, which offers clinical solutions that are also paraben- and cruelty-free; and Alpyn Beauty, a sustainably sourced natural brand formulated with a proprietary complex of wildcrafted and hand cultivated alpine botanicals grown in the mountains of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The latter, which we added in March, has the industry buzzing and, so far, is exclusive to our spa. Amy Bell Spa director Spa Adolphus at The Adolphus Hotel Dallas Partnering with environmentally conscious skincare lines has always been a top priority for me, so I make sure the spa's products have ingredients and packaging that are as clean and green as possible. My goal is to deliver the best possible results to my clients while leaving the smallest footprint on the earth. My guests are extremely product sensitive and really appreciate that I continue to broaden my knowledge, ensuring that ever ything I use is eco-friendly. I care as much about my customers as I do about the environment. Neala Moch Owner Stratford House Salon and Spa Del Mar, California RETAIL ROCKSTAR THE SPA Alchemy Face Bar in Boulder and Denver, Colorado THE PRO Bre Morris, owner THE STAR Sorella Apothecary The Balm WHY IT ROCKS "Because of its ability to deeply hydrate a range of skin types, The Balm appeals to practically every one of our clients. Some of them use it day and night, while others use it at night only. They love the smoothing effects and that it imparts a natural, dewy glow, which is something that's tough to achieve in Colorado! We regularly present The Balm as our product of the month, and it's hard to keep it on our shelves because guests see such an immediate improvement in their skin. When they notice the results and realize that the product does what we tell them it will, it builds a deeper trust between esthetician and client, and increases our spa earnings considerably. We also love that the company is against harsh fragrances, parabens and sulfates—a philosophy that aligns closely with our own." u HOW HAS THE GREEN BEAUTY MOVEMENT IMPACTED YOUR BUSINESS? e've W ful. pec Es pa. rtn Pa nt.
