Consumers throughout the world have accepted vitamins and dietary supplements as both natural and scientifically effective beauty products. According to data from Euromonitor International, beauty was the fifth most popular global marketing/positioning tactic for 2008 and 2009, supplanting joint health. Each country has its own definitions of beauty, and its own product preferences. Some countries are merging the concepts of health and beauty by subscribing to the belief that beauty comes from a healthy body, and others distinctly separate beauty and health. However, the exact same products are popular with all these consumers. Savvy spa personnel should make it a point to discuss beauty products using health-based terminology that most resonates with individual clients.

Vitamins in spa products and treatments

Vitamins have become extremely important in helping spa professionals and personal care suppliers achieve the kind of balance that is being demanded from clients; in this case, scientifically proven efficacy from natural ingredients.

Despite the fact that many vitamins are produced in a highly industrial fashion, they are among the most trusted of health and well-being ingredients and are universally recognized as natural and beneficial nutrients. At the same time, there is plenty of scientific evidence to support their role in health, so it is no surprise that the spa industry has successfully piggy-backed on the popularity of vitamins in food and beverages to extend their usage into spa products and services.

Retail Tip: Vitamin Vitality in the Spa

Have you ever considered retailing supplements or vitamin drinks in your spa? Although you must encourage clients to check with their physicians before adding any supplementation to their existing regimen, a great way to round out a vitamin-based spa treatment would be to offer vitamin-based topical skin care options in your retail area, as well as supplements and vitamin drinks for a refreshing whole-body pick-me-up, allowing spa clients who are focused on the power of vitamins to find extra ways to obtain their benefits outside the treatment room.
