How Green Beauty Impacts Spas

earth-day[Image: Courtesy of Unsplash]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 certified 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,” says Jill Sullivan, Spa manager and licensed master esthetician at 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,” says 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,” Neala Moch, Owner of Stratford House Salon and Spa Del Mar, California. “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 everything I use is eco-friendly. I care as much about my customers as I do about the environment.”
