Taking care of our guests and our planet

At SpaHalekulani, we’ve always tried to tread gently on our earth. We recently joined The Green Spa Network, a collection of spas around the world dedicated to sustainable, earth-friendly products and practices. As part of this group, we are implementing new procedures to improve energy efficiency and water conservation efforts, while adapting mindful practices that contribute to the planet, the community and your health.

As a “natural beauty” salon, we use products from companies with the same commitment, because what we put on our body should be as natural as what we put in our body.

With this in mind, we introduced Coola sunscreen. This sunscreen is better for your health, as it contains certified organic extracts, antioxidants and vitamins that boost to your skin's natural immune system. It’s also better for our ocean because the sunscreen you put on, comes off in the water. Natural ingredients are gentler to our marine environment and the reef, so what began as a spa option, is now the sunscreen that Halekulani provides to all our guests.

For those seeking gentle options with their spa treatments, we proudly offer many sustainable practices and products. We offer an Organic Facial, using Scientific Organics products. Our hair care line, from California-based Neuma Hair Care Products, is equally dedicated to using organic raw materials and sustainable business practices. With our nail care line from Spa Ritual, guests have a choice of vegan-based products for their manicures and pedicures. All our makeup applications and consultations are provided with Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup, a product line that provides a healthy mineral foundation without oil, talc, FD&C dyes, parabens or synthetic preservatives and fragrance.  

This year, to acknowledge our commitment to our planet, we’re offering a discount on our Spa Treatments on Earth Day, Tuesday April 22, 2014. Those who select one of our Natural Beauty Services will receive a 25 percent savings.

In addition, that day all guests will receive a complimentary packet of non-GMO Arugula and Green Leaf seeds, as well as a Personal Care Ingredient Guide.

Various natural products are on sale throughout the month of April and on Earth Day, those purchasing products totaling $25 or more will receive a Help Your Skin, Heal the Planet, eco-friendly bamboo tote.

Wherever you are on April 22 — at Halekulani or elsewhere — we encourage you to consider your health and that of your family and our planet when making product choices. Happy Earth Day.
