Four Elements Organic Salon & Spa Is Committed To Beauty, Wellness And The Environment

By S. Mathur

What if your spa had the same commitment to the environment that you do? What if it followed environmentally-sound practices, refusing to use strong chemicals in beauty and healthcare products while offering the the highest quality natural skin and hair products on the market? If you live in Southwick, MA, your spa might be the Four Elements Organic Salon & Spa. Owner Mary Welch brings 18 years of experience and an education in organics to the task of running an organic and holistic spa.

"The ingredients of our products are responsibly sourced, biodynamic and fair trade," Welch said. "We are a very environmentally conscious salon/spa, we recycle whenever possible and firmly believe in reducing our carbon footprint."

Not only is it better for the environment, choosing organic products is better for your health. The first and most visible, or rather olfactory, benefit of an organic salon and spa is the absence of the harsh chemical smells so often associated with hair care products.

"You can instantly tell the difference when you enter our salon/spa, not only is the environment catered to that of wellness but you're not instantly overwhelmed with the smell of chemicals," Welch said. "Its very common for people to come in and say 'Wow! This doesn't smell like a normal salon. It smells great in here.'"

Welch adds that it's important for the spa to create a toxin free space, making it safer for clients as well as staff. The spa's commitment to changing the beauty industry in the direction of environmentally sound practices is realized by using safe and natural high performance hair services and products.

Spa services include massage therapy, facials, waxing and make up. Hair care services, including cuts, coloring, highlights and relaxers all likewise use natural products free of chemical smells and fumes. In fact, clients report that the salon smells like fruit.

Spa services can help clients contending with long-term stress, by creating an immersive environment of relaxation. Welch and the spa are on a mission to make people feel and look beautiful inside and out. Educating clients about hair and skin care as well as the best natural products to use is also a high priority clients.

The spa supports local, and global eco-friendly sustainability initiatives. In fact, Welch admits to having a vested interest in providing organic care for spa clients. She wants them to go out relaxed and rejuvenated to do battle for the environment.

"We believe that instilling a practice of holistic wellness and Earthly responsibility we can create an impact on our clients lives that will encourage them to go forth and be beautiful environmental warriors!" she said.
