With so many spas around and just as many spa brands, what I look for in a spa is a point of difference. Partnering with a local brand is an easy concept and really consolidates the brand message for the spa too. Embrace the local environment. So I was interested to read that the eforea spa brand from Hilton has done this on the South Island of New Zealand. The Hilton Queenstown Resort and Spa has introduced the Evolu skincare range as one of its core treatment options.
The home-grown botanical collection — available on eforea’s shelves and in its therapy rooms—was created by Kiwi Kati Kasza with natural ingredients from New Zealand. The potent blends include unique plant species, such as native ferns, flax and kawakawa (a coastal plant), along with other pure components ranging from New Zealand manuka honey to marine wakame algae.
Evolu and eforea have worked together to create a custom line, available only in eforea spa treatments, which includes:
● Body mud – using New Zealand avocado pear oil for its softening and smoothing properties, combined with New Zealand kanuka tree oil, known to be healing and antimicrobial.
● Hand and foot cream with menthol – made with hydrating harekeke (flax seed oil), carrot seed oil for its nourishing properties and kiwifruit seed oil with vitamin C and amino acids.
● Rehydration mask – a blend of healing kawakawa and manuka oil, borage oil with provitamin A and gamma linoleic acid and protein-rich hazelnut oil.
