What is your current labor of love? Are you currently working on a new project or assignment that you would like to share with our membership?
My passion is developing technology to make skin healthier while providing instant cosmetic beauty. We are just launching the first 100% biodegradable plant fiber sheet masks which create porous infusion of growth factors and antioxidants to fight environmental aggressors AND full volume lift. As always, they are free of parabens and dyes. Our whole team loves them so much they chose #lovethissheet as our campaign slogan! The majority of sheet masks are not environmentally friendly and filled with chemicals.
In your industry arena and/or area of expertise, what are you seeing on the horizon as a not to be missed or overlooked trend, topic, challenge or opportunity?
Coming from a research and technology background, I am focused on integrating and leveraging the body of science called immunotherapy focuses on how to trigger each cell of the body to repair and protect itself. One of the most important skin health issues is helping the skin produce sufficient levels of Vitamin D which is essential to optimize the function of the immune system. We are developing Vita D infusions for all of our body products so we can keep topical levels high in the skin and bolster environmental defense. The challenge and opportunity for the spa industry is to move skin care education, retail and treatment beyond a focus on smell, texture and hydration to a deeper understanding of how to effect real change for skin health in treatment and retail attach. It means that the industry needs to invest in making time for staff and management to be educated and experience treatments personally to gain an authentic knowledge of the benefits and result so we can be evangelists through personal experience.
You have been an inspiration to us at the Florida Spa Association…who or what is your inspiration? Would you share a personal mantra or favorite pearl of wisdom with our members?
My daughter is always my inspiration as my love for her motivates me to insure what I contribute to the world makes it a better place for her and everyone who comes behind her. Also, I am more aware of the importance of being present in the moment and cherishing every moment at work and play.
