First it was organic food. Then, last year, we saw a flood of organic liquors and wines hit the market. Could this be the year of the organic spa? The Today Show profiles Priti the only all-organic spa
in New York City, What does organic mean when it comes to spa treatments? For one thing. many of the ingredients in nail polish are fairly toxic. The polishes and polish removers at Priti are free from dibutyl phthalate, toluene and formaldehyde. Their teas, creams, scrubs, essential oils and even their cleaning products are all organic. Even their website is hosted by a green web hosting company that plants a tree for every person who joins.
Priti offers a variety of services including the Priti relaxing manicure or pedicure which starts with a bath of fresh flowers and organic lavender oil followed by a scrub with lavender chamomile foot polish, a massage using a lavender chamomile organic cream and finally a polish. The manicure is $40 and the pedicure is $50. A spa day package including an hour-long massage, facial, manicure and pedicure is $300.
