A new French brand promises that your next trip to the spa will be an indulgent affair.
A moisturiser made from amethyst that reduces wrinkles. Or perhaps a mask from tourmalines that promotes cell growth. Crafting skincare products that boast the active properties of precious minerals is just one of the reasons why French brand Sens & Spirit is a favourite with spas and salons across the world.
After establishing themselves in markets in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, it arrived in India, with a launch in the city last week. “Sens & Spirit offers innovative formulas with patented active ingredients for anti-aging, exfoliation and skin repair,” begins Tiphaine Lamarre, the brand’s marketing and export manager. “Our products are distinct in that we make use of specific formulas with a high percentage of active ingredients so that skin improves in 21 days—the time needed for skin cell renewal—and remains supple,” she adds. With no silicone, paraben or mineral oils, their range claims to use 90 per cent ingredients of natural origin. Pineapple, avocado, bamboo, cranberry and rosemary are some of the sources of their active ingredients.
According to Lamarre, the 10-year-old brand waited this long to come to India, because “we wanted to take our time to analyse the Indian cosmetic market and its potentials”. And with the high pollution in metros and increase in skin complaints, they felt now is the “right time to introduce our approach”. Soon to be available across salons and spas in the city, she says, “Sens & Spirit will help fight hyperpigmentation, ageing and lack of hydration due to sun and pollution, the main skin concerns in India.”
