Jumeirah Vittaveli launches organic skincare brand ila’s exclusive Gold Cell Body Treatment for Royal Residence
Jumeirah Vittaveli has partnered with British Organic Skincare brand ila to offer a bespoke Gold Cell Body Treatment, exclusively available to guests of the Royal Residence.
The Gold Cell Body Treatment can be experienced at the Royal Residence’s private spa, starting with ila’s Manipura massage to re-connect a positive flow of energy to restore balance, leaving the mind, skin and body sparkling. A 24-carat gold infused salt scrub follows to cleanse, detox and stimulate the lymphatic system and body. Releasing toxins and freeing fatigue, the final application is a gold infused serum to moisturise and hydrate – leaving a gold shimmer on the skin.
The Three Stage Treatment:
- Gold Body Scrub – stimulates and cleanses the lymphatic system and starts the process of eliminating toxins from the cells whilst the negative-ions from the Himalayan Salt start to deeply activate the energy body leaving the lymphatic system vibrant.
- Manipura Massage – Manipura means ‘beautiful jewel’ in Sanskrit and is the seat of good health and internal source of vitality. This massage combined with the synergy of the essential oils and 24 carat, gold activates this internal fire thus stimulating the lymphatic and circulatory system. Toxins and fatigue can be eliminated and skin is rejuvenated as the mind and body are restored to natural vibrant energy.
- Gold Serum Application – this anti-ageing gold serum is used in the treatment and rejuvenates skin conditions.
“ila is a product that is close to my heart – I admire the dedication and passion of Denise and John Leicester, the founders of the brand. Our spa is very popular with guests looking to switch off and relax during their island holidays and I am honoured to introduce this Gold Cell Body treatment, exclusively available at our spa,” Gemma Lacatan, Director of Spa and Wellness at Jumeirah Vittaveli, was quoted in a statement, as saying.
