Helmed by beauty guru Lynn Shulman, Elixir Organic Spa keeps things natural with a strict zero-tolerance policy for synthetic ingredients, performing beautifying services with chemical-free, organic skincare products pure enough to eat. Aestheticians kick off the organic body-wrap treatment by gilding patrons in a tip-to-toe pure organic chocolate-mint body mask, followed by the application of healing herbs to ensure perfectly seasoned appendages. Once bodies have been thoroughly dressed, clients snuggle into a heated sauna blanket for 20 minutes of balmy relaxation that facilitates the absorption of the wrap’s anti-oxidant properties. Meanwhile, a moisturizing fig enzyme face mask utilizes alpha hydroxyl acids to whisk away dead skin cells from dulled faces, rendering skin as smooth and clean as a just-ironed bar of soap.
Following the above services, a date and honey exfoliation treatment flushes gunk and grime from pores with the aid of steam cleaning, and an organic skin-lightening treatment imbues clouded complexions with a brilliant radiance. The rich anti-aging eye treatment helps expunge evidence of maturation, zamboniing away crow’s feet, fine lines, and monocle tattoos. After a short, weather-baffling rain shower, guests undergo a muscle-relaxing massage that melts away tension and leaves limbs limber.
Elixir Organic Spa
According to Lynn Shulman, founder of Elixir Organic Spa, "Our products are so pure, you can literally eat them." Aside from slathering the spa’s food-grade products on her face and morning toast, Shulman makes a concerted effort to bust myths about food and product labels. For instance, she says that “many products on the market are falsely labelled as ‘natural’ or ‘organic’” when they’re really packed with chemicals and toxins. This realization led her to develop a house brand of synthetic-free beauty products. Stockpiled alongside products from like-minded artisans, Elixir Organic Spa’s rinses, scrubs, and lotions permeate spa services such as the exfoliating fig enzyme facial.
