The quest of self-dubbed “Green Beauty Queen,” a.k.a Valerie Mason-Robinson, to find the most effective products and treatments for skincare has reached as far as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. There, her research taught her how environmental factors can impact the skin, which then sent her in search for natural and organic products as well as holistic treatments. Since founding Eden Organix, Ms. Mason-Robinson and her staff of aestheticians cosset bodies with facials, body wraps, salon services, and waxing treatments that celebrate her environmental activism with eco-friendly techniques and products.
Euro Bronze Tanning gives clients seven paths to golden skin: a Level 1, 2, 3, and 4 horizontal bed, a Level 4 standup bed, a UV-free Mystic Tan machine, and airbrush tanning. The UWE Level 4 bed uses high-pressure facial and shoulder tanners and envelops clients in body mists and aromatherapy. The Supersonic standup booth is ideal for quickly achieving a caramel color as it bronzes in seven minutes. Mystic Tan booths imbue skin with golden hues in only a few seconds. The other UV-free option—airbrush tanning—may take 20 minutes, but it includes a barrier-lotion application plus precise tanning-solution applications to ensure that the airbrush artist coats every square inch and creates a realistic-looking 24-pack.
