Developed in response to the current popularity of beards, I’m pleased to hear that the Moroccan themed Spa at Dolphin Square has developed a new Arabian Beard Ritual treatment to exclusively cater for its bearded clients.
Set to launch on June 1st, the Arabian Beard Ritual is the brainchild of Dolphin Square’s Marketing Manager, Ricardo Faria Ornelas, who came up with concept based on the proven hygiene benefits of beard grooming. “The fact that facial hair is very course means that beards are likely to trap dirt and harbour germs which can lead to skin infections” Ricardo comments. “With this in mind, it is important to keep both the beard and the surrounding skin clean to maximise facial hygiene”.
The Arabian Beard Ritual
The 25 minute treatment starts with a cleansing ritual using Savon Noir soap to remove dead skin cells, leaving a smoother and brighter complexion. Part of the Spa’s traditional Moroccan Hammam ritual, Savoir Noir soap contains black olives and is rich in vitamin E, helping to soften and nourish the skin.
Hot towels are then applied to pressure points around the face and neck area followed by a soothing massage over the towel. This practice softens the hair to prevent ingrowing hairs, skin irritation and follicle inflammation.

Argan Oil is applied, which hydrates and softens the skin, whilst acting as a deep conditioning agent for the beard, leaving it glossy and shiny. Moisturising the skin around the beard is essential because facial hair can ‘wick’ moisture away from the skin leaving it irritated and dry. Guests are then treated to a soothing scalp and face massage to promote relaxation.
The final stage of the treatment involves a beard comb, which not only helps train beard follicles to grow in a uniformed direction, but also adds the ultimate well-groomed finish.
