Welcome to the spa…a little word about my facial treatment.  They are non-invasive, restorative, hydrating, totally customized to your skin condition and a sanctuary for the soul.  Listen to sacred sounds, enjoy divine scents and rest while your skin rehydrates, and the tension in your shoulders and neck are massaged away. No spa should promise magic results with their skin treatments, and I don’t either.  Good skin is up to you as well as your genetics.  You control the amount of sleep you get, the food you put in your body, the lifestyle habits you choose.  All of those factors have an impact on the health of your skin.  With good sleep, deep breathing, stress management, and proper nutrition…you will find even the most basic skin care works wonders on you. Pop by for some deep relaxation today and enjoy one of my customized facials.

Not all organic  product lines are created equally. Chances are that nearly all the natural  products found in your local department stores and health food stores are not  fully chemical and preservative free, which in turn, can make them more apt to  irritate the skin and be harmful. Any company can use the word “natural” or “organic” on its labels, and what often  happens is these products will contain one or two natural ingredients, but will  also have many known carcinogens or otherwise unsafe ingredients. What makes Skin Essence products different is that they have carefully selected only the  best and most beneficial organic ingredients for each one of their unique  products.

There are a number of ingredients which are currently found  in most mainstream products that have been shown in numerous studies to be unsafe for the body.

Their products DO NOT contain any of  the ingredients on the following list. This list is brief and is meant to be a  summary of some of the most common chemical ingredients to avoid.
