The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York is delighted to enhance its green and sustainable offerings with the launch of its new, high-performance and eco-centric Nature’s Radiant Facials. This exclusive 50 and 80-minute holistic treatment for the face, neck and décolleté was developed with the ecologically conscious and 100% organic sustainable skincare company Amala, based in Germany where standards for natural and organic are among the most stringent in the world. The line of Nature’s Radiant Facials takes eco-conscious skincare to the next level by treating skin’s specific needs with some of the world’s most potent healing botanicals to ensure noticeable results.
Each customized Nature’s Radiant Facial begins with a thorough skin analysis to determine whether toning, deep pore cleansing, softening of fine lines and/or restoring hydration is needed. From there, Amala’s organic seed oils and whole plant products gently cleanse and exfoliate the skin to balance and renew elasticity while stimulating cell renewal and providing antioxidant protection. The facials include two masks – a Rhassoul clay mask to draw out impurities and soften the skin, followed by a customized mask that stimulates collagen and hydrates the skin. A relaxing scalp, foot or hand massage is given while the masks work to replenish the skin. 50-minute facials include one of the massages and 80-minute facials include two of the three massage options. After the masks are completed, the therapist administers a Manual Lymphatic Drainage Facial Massage which acts as a natural face-lift, reduces puffiness and firms the skin for immediate, visible results and a youthful, healthy and radiant appearance.
“We created Nature’s Radiant Facials as part of our Spa’s effort to become more and more organically pure and eco-logically focused, while still delivering the visible, high-performance results our guests expect,” states Spa Director, Denise Vitiello. “Each custom-blended facial is based on a different potent botanical – Blue Lotus to purify, Cocoa Bean to rejuvenate, and Jasmine to hydrate so we can provide a facial that’s very specific to each guests needs. We’re delighted to be working with Amala’s customized, organic skin care products to create facial and body treatments that produce high impact results without the use of chemicals,” said Denise Vitiello, Spa Director.
Amala is known for its “skincare with a pure conscience” philosophy. Their products contain the highest possible concentration of organic and wildcrafted plant ingredients grown in their native regions to provide unsurpassed potent performance and wellness benefits. These ingredients are sourced from global farm partners and grown according to certified organic agriculture practices which positively impact the earth. “When it comes to skincare, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice results for responsibility,” said Amala’s founder, Ute Leube.
