During a recent stay in Paternoster’s five star Strandloper Ocean resort, DECO was introduced to the holistic experience and all-natural beauty products of Healing Earth. After an indulgent afternoon testing the goods, DECO reports back.
Harnessing the goodness of Africa’s rich natural resources, Healing Earth spa rituals and product range will transform your beauty regime. This South African brand, with spas on offer in the most luxurious resorts, is proudly presenting an all-natural range of beauty products, making it the perfect choice for our upcoming Green Issue research.
There really is nothing more indulgent than a detoxing, hydrating full body massage in the midst of paradise. When the Elements Wellness Suite at Strandloper Ocean invited DECO to sample a treatment during our recent stay, we couldn’t say no. And why would we? As the resort proudly boasts a Healing Earth retreat on site.
The brainchild of spa veteran Elisabeth Brandt, Healing Earth is a premium African spa brand that offers natural, organic products, therapies and spa concepts to discerning clients the world over.
Each lovingly-created Healing Earth product harnesses the restorative powers of Africa’s rich natural resources, and is made from only the purest natural active ingredients sourced from the continent’s powerful minerals, oceans, flowers, herbs, fruit, seeds and natural oils.
Developed by leading cosmetic scientists, all Healing Earth ingredients are carefully selected and meticulously researched, ensuring a pure product that connects users to the healing powers of Mother Earth. Products are free from synthetic fragrances, colourants, petro chemicals, DEA, preservatives and parabens.
It was the perfect spa for us to sample as we researched our upcoming Green Issue. Over and above using only people-, animal- and earth-friendly methods and ingredients, Healing Earth honours their commitment to uplifting Africa and all her beings through the Healing Earth Foundation – a project that aims to nurture and develop conscious, healthy earth children of all ages through outreach projects.
Our hour-long Pinotage Deep Tissue Aromatherapy Ritual was sensationally relaxing and rejuvenating. Using the powerful Pinotage range of oils, developed from the grape, the blend of natural ingredients was revitalizing on the skin as therapist Fercia worked her magic.
Highly recommended as a morning wake up call before jumping on your bike for a refreshing coastal ride around Paternoster, or else as DECO sampled it, as a relaxing afternoon spoiling session to ease away the aches and pains of working life during a wondrous long weekend away.
