OUR FORMULATIVE PHILOSOPHY

“AS A PRACTICING ESTHETICIAN AND HERBALIST, I CHOOSE INGREDIENTS WITH INTEGRITY; PROVEN BOTANICALS AND CLEAN COSMECEUTICALS THAT NOURISH YOUR SKIN AND DELIVER RESULTS.”- BARBARA CLOSE

OUR APPROACH TO FORMULATION
When we opened the doors to our first Healing Arts Center & Spa in 1995 there were no professional-grade products available on the market that aligned with our values. Knowing that inflammation is the primary cause of premature aging—and is largely caused by irritating ingredients and environmental stressors—we began to create products that connected the science of skin health with natural healing principles.  Free of toxic ingredients, our collection nurtures the skin with proven botanicals and is enhanced with clean cosmeceuticals to deliver results. This innovative and effective approach to product formulation has made our brand an enduring leader in the spa industry for over two decades.

CLEAN. EFFECTIVE. HOLISTIC.
We believe in a holistic approach to skin health and well-being, understanding that the skin is a reflection of all that is going on inside, and choose ingredients that nourish the skin while delivering results.

OUR INGREDIENTS
Ingredients with Integrity: The key to radiant skin is choosing ingredients that support the skin’s health, not harm it. From our base materials to our preservative systems, we are committed to sourcing clean, sustainable ingredients and never use known allergens or irritants. We select proven botanicals like Oats, Aloe and seed oils that nourish the skin, then infuse our formulas with clean cosmeceuticals; proven dermatological actives like plant stem cells, Retinol and Glycolic Acid to deliver visible results.
