This week we tell you a little bit about Uspa and how you can harness their amazing products for yourself, to enjoy the botanical excellence that promotes a healthier beauty...
Who are Uspa?
Uspa is a fantastic up and coming Australian company that creats products based on a natural and results based formula - herbal and scientific technology. This makes for a range of botanically infused products that have also been specially formulated to help achieve healthy skin because 'healthy skin is all about vitality, and reflective of a graceful aging process - healthy skin captures the essence of Uspa' For a holistic and healthy approach to beauty as well as a truly relaxing (at home) experience, you'll adore their range of natural products.
Founded by parners George and Vanessa Jilly, the Uspa brand was developed in Melbourne, with a solid, natural grounding thanks to George's knowledge of botany. The effects of plant chemistry, especially essentials oils, in both skincare and general health and well-being formed the underlying basis of the brand. Vanessa's previous experience practicing nursing also gave Uspa an authoritative head start in terms of a holistic approach, caring for the individual.
Not only are Uspa dedicated to harnessing natural ingredients, they are also environmental friendly, choosing recyclable packaging, as well as carbon offsetting programs for the production of their amazing line. Plus, product development is free of cruelty and involves no animal testing. The green goddess inside us is loving it!
What is the Uspa range?
The Uspa range incorporates a healthy dose of sophistication and functionality. Created under the philosophy that effectively engaging with nature leads to total beauty and a sense of wellbeing, all of Uspa's natural skin and hair care products utilise the healing powers of plants and herbs.
The Uskincare line features everything needed for a well rounded routine; from cleansing, toning and exfoliating, to hydrating, as well as masks, serums and eye gels. The men's skincare line is also fully thought out with the Uspa range of Supernatural Men products covering all of the essentials. Ubody contians plenty of body cleansers, oils, moisturisers and scrubs. And last, but by no means least, the haircare range is as comprehensive as many 'haircare only' brands.
The Uspa Healing Hands Cream with Echinacea will look just as good on your bedside table as it feels on tired hands before bed. Or keep in your bag for hydrated mitts on the go!
Of course, if you prefer treating yourself to an 'in spa' treatment and live in Victoria, you can always visit the flagship Uspa Immersion spa in Brighton to revel in treatments such as the Organic Coco Cream Wrap or a Traditional Balinese Massage - who could resist?
