A spa experience is made up of many elements, each contributing in its own way to the total enjoyment and success of a guest's visit to a spa facility. Products used at such an establishment are among those factors that play a part in determining how good a treatment can be. Elemis, renowned as one of the top product brands in the world, is chosen by spa professionals for its high-grade aromatherapy lines that encompass a holistic approach.
Elemis started off as a lifestyle brand for treating people holistically with individual prescriptions of plant essential oils and marine extracts mixed in natural bases. Elemis's philosophy is to keep alive the ancient tradition of extracting oil and essence the natural way without the aid of chemicals or heat. It is a long and expensive process, but it is healthier and the oils and essences are more pure and active. This philosophy is also aimed at getting the products to inspire and remind customers to take time to care for their well-being. The idea is to b ring the market as close to nature as possible. Every step of the production process from crude idea, the soil Elemis grows its plants on and the cultivation method to the oils produced, the raw ingredients in the base and even packaging has the health and satisfaction of the end user in mind. From the growing fields to the customer's face, all aspects of quality are controlled.
The effort to use natural means to extract plant and mineral essence ensures that Elemis products are of the premium medical grade with greater therapeutic value compared to many of its competitors. Another important differentiating factor is the fact that Elemis uses only the first extraction to ensure maximum potential. The idea is similar with tea drinking: imagine using a tea bag 10 times; the aroma would still be there, but the essence of the tea is highly diminished. That is why Elemis plant essential oils are extracted only once using highly technical equipment to create the most natural and most efficient therapeutic oils. Another main reason why the company's products are so powerful is the use of "absolutes" which are the purest form of living energy extracted from plants. The world-renowned herbalist and aromatherpist, Jan Kusmirek, has helped the brand achieve this goal.
Elemis products are not tested on animals because the ancient formulas eliminate all need for this type of research. Only willing human volunteers try out the brand's new aromatherapy products. Paper and wood used for packaging are all from farmed trees and do not involve products from wild trees. Elemis focuses on each spa individually and they develop it as a team. Although the quality and treatments are standardised, no two Elemis spas are the same. Each has its own uniqueness.
The essential oils' extraction process is amazingly comple, but yields untainted extracts with the active therapeutic elements fully intact. First of all, the flower petals are picked early in the morning when the oils are most abundant. The petals are then layered individually on glass sheets that are coated with vegetable fat. The flowers' aromas are transferred to the fat and the petals are continuously renewed until the vegetable fat becomes saturated with essential oils. The vegetable fat soaked in essential oil is called "concrete". The "abosolute",which has dynamic properties for skin repair and maintenance, is then extracted from the concrete through a gentle process of repeated filtration plus soft, natural volvent. This leaves a pure formula for maximum action once applied to the skin. Absorption into the skin is also more efficient.
Research is also one key element to Elemis's success in the spa industry. Dedicated teams research new natural ingredients for innovative products plus improvement on existing ones. All this is done under the watchful eyes of top executives who truly respect and understand the brand philosophy and care for their products.
Elemis is under the supervision of some of the industry's most brilliant minds. Some members of the Elemis team are leaders in aromatics and aromatherapy and have spent most of their working lives in the aromatic cosmetic industry. Many are passionate about alternative treatments, beauty issues, spa retreats and holistic treatments and have deidicated both their passion and experience into this world-class spa product. As a result of all this, Elemis has received the Baccarat Award for Best Spa Product twice. It is not difficult to understand why many renowed spas choose to use Elemis products across the globe.
