Sustainable Skin Care – How to Introduce It into Your Spa
In recent years, we’ve seen the rise in sustainable skin care companies and their marketing campaigns. This has largely been driven by consumer demand and rising expectations. While there are certainly skin-care companies that genuinely care about sustainability and the effect their products have on the environment and on people’s health, many others are simply chasing the trend. In this class, you will learn how making changes to only the external factors, such as recyclable and biodegradable packaging, lower energy consumption, reducing the use of disposable items, etc. is simply not enough. Your clients want to see more. The need to introduce organic skin care products has become a must, and you will learn how to add them to your treatments and services to benefit your clients. For when we invest in truly sustainable products, we invest in a truly sustainable future.
