Today is Earth Day and Escape Day Spa is full of Tree-Huggers who care about your skin and your health! We not only want you to look and feel phenomenal but want to make sure we are doing everything possible to contribute to your health and protect you from harm by denying products that contain any chemicals, preservatives, etc. We have been green, as far as products go, since our beginning in 2010. Our dedication to green is firm and unwavering.
The theme for Earth Day 2019 is: Protect Our Species, which, of course, includes plants! Many of our products like our oils, skin care products and hair removal products – to name a few – are made from or have properties derived from plants. Below are just a few ways Escape Day Spa celebrates Earth Day – every day.
Skin Care Products at Escape Day Spa
We get many of our skin care products from Hylunia, where complete modern science meets ancient Ayurveda.

When it comes to the smoothness and beauty of your skin, we rely on the safest and most effective hair removal treatment in the world, Nufree Nudesee, Developed over 25 years ago to help plastic surgeons remove their patients’ hair before surgery, it is carried by thousands of professional salons throughout the world.
- Nufree Nudesse is not a wax and never sticks to the skin.

Manicures and Pedicures
For our manicures and pedicures, we use Dazzle Dry , Bio Sculpture Gel, and EVO2 which are free of DBP, toluene, formaldehyde and camphor. Bio Sculpture Gel is an exceptionally durable gel treatment – containing absolutely no form of acrylic – that nurtures the nail bed while allowing the nail to look immaculate. Dazzle Dry- is formulated through science, and inspired by natural ingredients delivering quick-drying, long-lasting nails without the use of abrasive chemicals or UV lighting.
Dazzle Dry believes that beauty and wellness go hand in hand. For us, partnering with WeForest to help communities in India’s Khasi Hills regenerate their forest was a natural fit. Now every purchase our clients make doesn’t just give them healthier cosmetics, it gives us all a healthier planet.
Escape Solt Scrubs and Shea Butter Blend
Solt – a spelling of salt back in biblical times when salt was a sign of peace, protection, friendship, purity and cleansing.
All salt is not pure and equal. Salt companies are adding anti-caking agents and some of these are even offered in your grocery store. We created our own line of salt mineral soak and scrubs for hands, feet and the whole body. Our salt blends are comprised of everything pure. A special blend of salts also containing various organic herbs or flowers and Young Living essential oils. We even have a special blend that turns blue, with no chemicals, just God’s creations.
Another Escape Day Spa original is our shea butter blend. This blend is completely free of preservatives, organic oils, no scents, just purely perfect when you need extra moisture. Did you know shea butter naturally has an SPF of 7?
We only use organic and natural products, – aside from the salt which is derived from only researched and natural sources, from companies who care about your skin and care about the earth. Our tree-hugging journey began when we started noticing added chemicals in the ingredient lists of product lines sold to spas and nail markets. Our skin is the largest organ of the body and very absorbent to our surroundings. We are constantly exposed to pollution and toxins; especially living in the city. We are pre-disposed to products that claim “anti-aging” when the chemicals themselves in over the counter products are actually aging us! Products we use on our skin, including facial products, salt scrubs, lotions, and hair products not only destroy our bodies but destroy our earth. When we buy these products, we are contributing to the lab companies who produce these chemicals.
We care about you. We care about our families. We care about our earth. We haven’t covered every way we help support the environment, but now you can better understand how we run Escape Day Spa and can have more confidence in us as we serve you.
