Salt vs Sugar Scrubs

Aside from the obvious difference, do your clients know which would be better for their skin? Clients may not always know the same information we think they do, and could be using the wrong product for their skin type or dermatological concerns.

While both exfoliate the skin, sugar tends to be less abrasive, making it preferable for clients with sensitive skin and gentler for use on the face or newly waxed skin. Sugar scrubs also tend to be more hydrating for the skin.

Salt scrubs are more abrasive, which makes them excellent for exfoliating before body treatments, are great for reducing inflammation and since salt is known for antibacterial properties, making it good for acne.

From back bar to retail sizing, we've got effective, profitable and great smelling options for both salt and sugar so you can customize for your clients!

A Spa that had me at Hello!

This past weekend, I had a spa experience that has blown all previous experiences away! Why? Upon welcoming me into the already gorgeous and serene spa, they handed me something no other spa has done to me before...Cool Treats -- Iced Eucalyptus Spa Towels. They are so refreshing, and will be a huge hit amongst all of your clients during the spring and summer months.

Eucalyptus is a popular choice, because of its wide range of benefits. When used in a spa setting it can be used to clean and sanitize, because of its anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. Have your clients use these Iced Eucalyptus Towels to clean their hands, rub their face, cool their neck, and breathe in to help decongest, especially during a terrible allergy season. Adding this powerful essential oil to the iced towels can be used to stimulate, purify, refresh, and clear the mind before starting any spa service.
What you Need?

Recipe:
Pour some water into one stainless steel bowl, and add in 8-10 drops of your favorite Eucalyptus Essential Oil. (Hint: Use 1-2 drops of essential oil per towel). Dip and drench each towel into the bowl, wring it out, roll it,and transfer it to a clean bowl. Lastly, pour crushed iced or ice chips over the towels..... and there you have a nice spa treat!

I was so impressed how something so simple & economical can lead to a more memorable, enjoyable, and therapeutic experience. I know I will be back vising that spa again!
