Did you know June is National Papaya Month?

Did you know June is National Papaya Month?  Perfect for a theme!!! I'm a fan of theme days/months. I get bored with the same old routine, menus, options etc. Even if I adore a treatment, product, food etc., I get excited to see something new thrown in the mix. If a place does something different every month, it can quickly become my go to spot. It leaves me curious and looking forward to what the next surprise will be. It's like my birthday every month. Would you like your clients to think and feel that way about your business?

Ok back to papaya! This tasty fruit contains skin loving goodness including vitamin c, vitamin b, magnesium, minerals, flavonoids, and  lycopene (a carotenoid, which acts an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant) to name a few things that make it more than just a snack.

Papaya also has a natural enzyme called papain, which is excellent at skin whitening and makes for a gentle and moisturizing exfoliator. Did I mention it helps the body combat free radicals? It's like a ninja against premature aging.

June Jacobs has you covered (June Jacobs Papaya for June Papaya Month - coincidence?)The June Jacobs papaya products are a favorite among the top spas in the world, with good reason. Those familiar with her line may back me up on this one. Paraben and preservative free along with natural ingredients such as white, red and green tea extracts combined with goji berry, pomegranate and grapeseed extracts. Clients adore everything from the packaging and scents to the results they see and feel making it the perfect retail item (if you're using June Jacobs products in services, be sure to have the retail sizes close by!) that will be a repeat sale!

Get Festive with Cranberry Products

Tis the season! Now that Thanksgiving has passed, the start of the holiday season has officially begun. But is your spa prepped for the holiday craze? Why not start with cranberry products? Hopefully you and your clients aren't sick of it by now! Don't worry, the below products are most certainly not the edible type. Cranberry is great for the skin! Aside from having nearly every vitamin in the alphabet (well, at least A through D!) these delicious berries are also high in anti-oxidants - perfect for hydration and anti-aging. If you haven't heard of June Jacobs yet, you're missing out! They are an amazing skincare line, and a few of their products feature the beloved cranberry! I guarantee your clients will fall in love with these products. Their attractive packaging will look amazing on your retail stand - just in time for the holiday season! Check them out below.




To start, get your clients hooked on this delicious smelling Creamy Cranberry Cleanser. This ultra-hydrating cleanser provides moisture to the skin during the cleansing process and imparts a bouquet of fresh cranberry - umm, yummy!








After using the cleanser, be sure to have your clients follow with the Cranberry Hydrating Toner. Enriched with cranberry extracts, this toner will feel refreshing. A couple of sprays is all it takes! I use the June Jacobs Elastin Collagen Toner everyday, but this is becoming my new seasonal favorite!



Did I mention their products are paraben and preservative free? To complete the set, the Cranberry Pomegranate Moisture Masque is definitely a client favorite! This luxurious masque is combined with extracts of shea butter and sunflower seed oil to replenish the skin.






Be sure to stock up on these items, as I guarantee they will be selling out fast come December. You can even create your own retail package to include all 3 items!

Just a Fraction of Coconut Oil, Please!

If you haven't noticed our Just Added section of our site yet, you're definitely missing out! We are constantly adding new products each day, and I love seeing the latest offerings we have. My new favorite that we just got in is our Fractionated Coconut Oil by Soothing Touch. I know that coconut oil is definitely a craze that's gained quite the popularity over the past years in the beauty industry, but did you know that there are two different types? I'm sure you're used to using products that contain virgin coconut oil. Have you heard of fractionated coconut oil? It's exactly how it sounds, but with even more beautifying benefits! I'll explain why below!..

Fractionated coconut oil is processed differently than regular coconut oil. The reason being is that the oil has been through hydrolysis then steam distilled to remove the long chain triglycerides. As a result, only the medium chain triglycerides are left which makes for a highly saturated oil. This means the oil is even more abundant in antioxidants and its natural disinfecting effects! Unlike virgin coconut oil, which solidifies in colder temperatures, fractionated coconut oil remains in liquid form. This is great for use as a massage oil, and to blend with essentials oils or even for use in handmade lotions and soaps. Another plus is that this type of oil has a longer shelf life and stability which makes it cost effective for your business.



If you're in need of a new oil for your spa, I highly recommend trying out our Soothing Touch Fractionated Massage Coconut Oil on your clients! It is paraben free and unscented so you can customized the oil to whichever scent your client prefers. Unlike virigin coconut oil, this oil does not leave a greasy feel either. I promise your clients will love it!

Go Bananas with Banana Spa Products for Spring!

Aside from being super delicious and one of my favorite fruits, did you know that bananas are a beautifying food? A recent article I read claims that bananas help to hydrate cells and keep the skin smooth and moisturized due to their high potassium content. They also contain significant amounts of vitamin C and B6, which helps to maintain skin elasticity and act as a natural moisturizer. With the warmer months coming up, you might want to try incorporating a fun new treatment in your spa! 

We have a variety of banana products here are Pure Spa Direct that I love! Check below for some of my favorites...






Check out this banana mask, which can be a great way to add variety to your normal facial menu. It's loaded with skin nourishing banana extract to help maintain smooth skin. This is a very unique mask that will sweeten up any facial treatment!










With the warmer months coming up, why not change up the soap you're currently using in your spa's bathroom to something seasonal? This liquid hand soap by Pure and Basic in wild banana and vanilla is a delicious and aromatic summer scent that your clients will love! It's also paraben free!








Are you looking for a fun way to change the decor in your spa? This banana leaf runner is a great way to showcase your merchandise to customers and make it seem like they're in the tropics! It's also great for displaying treatment products, refreshments, or other amenities your spa has.






Yellow is a great nail polish color for spring and summer. Our Jessica Custom Nail Color Polish in Banana Peel is a lovely creamy yellow your customers will love! This polish is meant for natural nails and is completely free of formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor. It's also eco-friendly, vitamin enriched for maximum conditioning, and contains UVA/UVB to protect nails from the sun's damaging rays.. all pluses in my book!

Old School Cool: Dr. Bronner's Multi-Use Soap

When performing aesthetic services, you go out of your way to ensure that you use the only the finest and most effective products on your clients. The goal is not only to provide an excellent service, but also immediate gratification with smoother skin, finer lines, and reduced puffiness. Unfortunately, you cannot always be there to ensure that your clients are taking care of their skin at home to the same degree that you do in your aesthetic services.

A fantastic product line to retail to your clients and help guide them towards taking care of their skin is the Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap Skin Care Line. Unlike most of the commercial brands of soaps that you clients will find in their local drug stores, all of the Dr. Bronner's soaps are formulated with pure and organic ingredients. Plus, they are completely devoid of all of the harsh chemicals, parabens, preservatives and dyes that most products contain today.

As a personal testimonial, I am completely obsessed with Dr. Bronner's Organic Castile Liquid Lavender Soap. I have always been on a constant quest to find the best shower gel, shampoo, soap etc. The search has been fun but it is no longer possible for me to use any other soap out there. I use the liquid lavender as a shower gel - the lather is completely luxurious - shampoo, shaving cream and even laundry detergent. The Peppermint Liquid Soap is also fantastic to use as a toothpaste!

Which types of facial and body soaps do you recommend your clients use at home?

The June Jacobs Spa Collection - Providing the Best for Your Clients

Hey Ladies and Gents'! I have some fantastic news!! Pure Spa Direct is now the exclusive wholesale supplier of the June Jacobs Spa Collection. Up until very recently, this elite skin care line was only available for purchase in the finest 5 and 6 star resorts and hotels around the world. However, the line is now available for purchase for Pure Spa Direct customers as well!!

From personal experience, I have found that spa treatments are one the most homogeneous services in the salon, spa, and wellness center industry. Everywhere, the treatments seem to be using the same products and same technique. In order to stand out from the rest and supply your clients with truly the finest services and retail, I highly recommend implementing the June Jacobs Spa Collection into your facial and body treatments.

I understand from talking to so many Pure Spa clients that making the leap to a new brand product can be scary. Fortunately, my coworkers and I have chronicled our favorite June Jacobs products so as to give you some more insight into this fantastic line.

1. Lemon Sugar Body Polish
The moment that you open this beautifully packaged scrub, your senses instantly become invigorated with the sweet and tart smell of lemon. It is aromatherapy at its finest. The scrub itself is rich with skin moisturizers and nourishing oils so that when the sugar on your skin has melted away, you are left with glossy, supple skin. I highly recommend this for exfoliating services in your spa.

2. Pore Purifying Mud Masque
I'm just going to say it. I have problematic skin. I have pasty, dull, highly sensitive skin with stress breakouts. When getting facials, the moment the mag lamp is turned on, I hear an 'Oh..,' a sigh, and a attempted diplomatic description of what to do about my pores. Well, I would like to personally thank Ms. Jacobs because she has changed my life. This Pore Purifying Mask has been a life saver for me. I applied a thin layer with a synthetic bristle face brush and I just let it sit for 15 minutes. In all honesty, it burned. It wasn't a burn that made it unbearable but it sure did let me know that it was cleaning deep into my pores. At the end of the 15 minutes, I was concerned with what my skin would look like. Anytime I have applied masks, my face would be as red as a lobster for hours. Upon rinsing my face, my skin looked bright and clear with not a single hint of redness or irritation. Consistently using this mask, even for a short period of time, has evened out my skin tone and cleared up my acne issues. I highly recommend this masque for acne treatments as well as back and chest facials. I also recommend retailing this so that your clients can take it home to add to their skin cleansing routine.

3. Vanda Orchid Dry Oil Body Spray
In addition to my clogged facial pores, I also have extremely dry skin. The Vanda Orchid Dry Oil Body Spray is the perfect prescription to treat this condition. This product, along with ALL June Jacobs products, is free of preservatives, parabens, petrochemicals, synthetic dyes, sulfates, and synthetic fragrances. The is a delicate hint of a floral scent to this body spray. I apply it everyday onto my wet skin upon getting out of the shower. After spraying it on, I either rub it in or let it dry. Either way, I am left with soft, supple skin that glows. I absolutely love this product! I recommend using this at the end of wet body treatments.

Spas across the country should update their services to include the elite June Jacobs Spa Collection because the entire line is mutually beneficial for the client and the business. The client is able to experience the zenith in skin care, which will then lead them to not only come back, but bring friends for the truly unique and special experience. In turn, as a business owner, this supplied you with consistent business and free advertising. So call us up today to have your spa services modified to include June Jacobs. You and your clients will be glad that you did!
