"It was like opening a can of worms—and my interest deepened."This is how Un Joli Visage Day Spa's owner, Elizabeth Ranson, describes her initial research into the potentially toxic and animal-tested ingredients found in prominent skincare products. As her research progressed, interest turned into disgust, and Elizabeth was spurred to found Botanical Healing Skin Care, a line of naturally derived crèmes she could rely on to safely nourish her clients' skin. It's these products, which are laced with extracts of algae, jojoba, shea butter, and other botanicals, that Elizabeth combines on the fly during her custom facials and body treatments to right all manner of skin-borne wrongs. Whether her clients suffer from acne, the effects of aging, or the effects of sleeping on a sand dune, she counteracts with appropriate doses of natural oils and cleansers, while imparting words of epidermal wisdom to improve at-home skincare routines.
