Product Of The Week: CryoDerm® Magnesium Calming Cream

Happy Friday!

I was super excited when I saw this new addition to the Pure Spa Direct line up. I'm a huge fan of magnesium lotions and oils. It has helped me with migraines and muscle cramping, and I recommend it to friends regularly.

Aside from the benefits I have experienced with magneisum, CryoDerm® Magnesium Calming Cream is helpful with a multitude of things including fluid retention, calming nerves and detoxifying the body, insomnia, eczema and psoriasis. Harvested from the Dead Sea where the mineral content is at its highest containing 21 minerals, this product is amazing.

You can retail and use this in services making it an easy retail item. Offer it as an add on to a pedicure (medi pedi upgrade!), manicure, massage even as a simple hand/leg massage while a client is getting a facial. Advise they try it a few times to see the results, and have it ready to retail!

See you next Friday, have an amazing weekend!

Product Of The Week: Alaskan Glacial Mud

Happy Friday!

This week, I'd like to spotlight Raw Alaska Glacial Mineral Mud.

Mud is always in style in this industry, from facials masks to body wraps. As a massage therapist, after a few years in I decided to give offering various mud add-ons a shot. As a mobile therapist at the time, I thought I was nuts for just the thought of mobile mud! I was able to make it work for me, and my client response surprised the heck out of me! All of them wanted to try it. After the trial run, some alternated their massages with mud treatments.

Mud works.

Alaska Glacial mud works. Containing more than 60 nourishing major and trace elements to promote healthy skin cell regeneration, you may find clients requesting mud packages.

Raw Alaskan Glacial. The name says it all.
Straight from the Copper River Delta in Alaska, enriched with a special combination of certified organic and wildcrafted botanical extracts from the Pacific Northwest that are chosen for their moisturizing, skin-softening, and anti-aging and immunoprotective properties. Natural as natural gets.

Are your clients hesitant on mud treatments due to that lovely, mud smell?  You can choose vanilla lavender and lavender peppermint. The slight tingle from the peppermint feels amazing, in my opinion!

Available in back bar sizes in both premixed and powder, as well as a beautiful line of retail items.

If you're not ready to jump into the mud just yet, retailing is a great way to talk to your clients and gauge their response to mud.

See you next Friday for another product of the week!

Butter Your Clients Up With Shea Butter

Looking to tighten up your spending, without sacrificing anything in your services? When was the last time you took a look at shea butter?

Did you just go, "oooh shea butter, I used to use/love that a few years ago"? You're not alone! The secret weapon of some savvy spas for years has been shea butter.

Chock full of oleic acid, a super hydrating fatty acid, shea butter should be in every room, station and on every trolley. It's also one of the most versatile products I can think of, as it can be used in almost any service. Use it an add on to any service you offer, it is great for retailing, and can be used as a carrier base for essential oils.

Clients with sensitive skin? Shea butter is gentle enough for even acne prone clients.

Not sure what services it can be easily incorporated in to? Here are a few to get your thoughts moving like butter:

Hair: can be used in/as a hair mask, can be used as an add on for a scalp massage (give clients a choice of essential oil to add in as well) to any other service

Massage: can be used as a carrier for essential oils, blends well with other oils like coconut and jojoba for a ridiculously luxurious feel.

Facials: helps promote elasticity, helps fade age spots and of course, it's been rumored to be a favorite of Cleopatra to keep her skin looking young and glowing

Body Treatments: slather this on your clients with a mylar blanket for a heavenly body wrap, use after a body scrub or dry brushing treatment, mix in an abrasive of your choice (salt, sugar, raw ingredients etc) for a cost effective and hydrating scrub

Nails: you can use this as a lotion or add in sugar or salt for a scrub

Sometimes the simplest of things can have the biggest impact for your clients, and your bottom line. Shea butter is high on that list!

Say Bye to Air Pollutants From Nail Services!

I get a lot of requests for manicure tables with vents to remove air pollutants in nail salons. Nail dust is released into the air anytime you file the nail, especially when using electric nail drills. These particles, much of which are microscopic, enter the air as soon as they leave the nail bed and then float about your salon and eventually end up everywhere – your clothes, your salon furniture, and the worst place of all, inhaled into your lungs. Whether you're adding new services or trying to improve the quality of your salon or spa, these tables end up being costly. I have a much more efficient and cost effective option for you!

Sea Breeze - not just a drink!

I went to the Jersey shore back in high school with my friends one year and we stayed in some 1 star motel called the Sea Breeze Motel.

But enough about me - if you keep ordering 'em, we'll keep shipping 'em... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Sea Breeze Astringent HERE!

Check out this Cure!

The Pedistill Foot-Leg Rest was super popular last week. Curious, I finally read up on them and found out they provide clients with a comfortable leg rest while putting the foot at proper service level for the technician. AND they feature contoured surfaces and a sturdy contoured bottom that conform to the rim of a tub. I'm only guessing those are good things... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy!
