When you want to indulge your body, you want to indulge it the right way! That means, you want to treat it well — not cover it with nasty chemicals for the sake of feeling good. You can feed your skin healthy, natural, nourishing products from natural sources and still enjoy a decadent experience. Toronto has a handful of organic and natural spas prove it. Even though some may roll their eyes at the mention of clean beauty and skincare, what you put on your body eventually makes its way in. Being mindful and going the all-natural route when you can is definitely the way to go.
Soak in all the relaxation you need and leave out the toxins at these 6 clean Toronto spas.
Not everything under Pure + Simple’s roof is 100% organic, but it is entirely free of harmful ingredients including parabens, petrochemicals, silicones, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, and dyes. You can get a more natural facial or peel which relies on water, oxygen, clay, fruit extracts, and tech rather than harsh chemicals. Also check out other services like traditional Chinese medicine, reflexology, and registered massage therapy to round out your trip. Take your pick between the chains Yorkville, King West, Yonge and Eglinton, Oakville, Beaches, or Richmond Hill locations.
The holistic skincare clinic and retail store, Province Apothecary is leading the way in green beauty in Toronto and beyond. The focus here is on seasonal, 100% organic, and small-batch made beauty products formulated to be as effective as possible. All ingredients are sourced from around Canada, containing no petroleum, parabens, synthetic ingredients, or toxins of any kind. Services here include organic facials, holistic nutrition/naturopathic consultations, brow shaping, lash tinting, and facial rejuvenation acupuncture. You’ll definitely want to come after payday and peruse the store!
For the downtowner who just wants an easy getaway for some self-care sans freaky ingredients or a scary price tag, Alma Natural Spa aims to be that oasis. On the menu are natural facials that rely on SeaFlora, an organic seaweed product, soy waxing, hot stone massages, reiki reflexology treatments, and more. Services are enriched by Alma’s own signature natural, handmade scrubs, lotions, and oils which use ingredients that are non-toxic, natural, and organic when possible.
The submenu of organic treatments at Sweetgrass Spa consists of manicures, pedicures, body scrubs, and three different facials, all making use of Tata Harper Skincare, which is completely organic and cruelty-free. Tata Harper sources over 300 different raw ingredients from over 68 countries – because naturally, the best organic ingredients come from all over the world. They come together under Sweetgrass’s organic menu.
From complete hair care services and massages, to facials and manicures and pedicures, Thair uses all organic, chemical-free products in all of its services. This is where to go in Toronto to find non-toxic lash and hair extensions, vegetable-dye brow tinting, and dye-jobs using organic colour systems, and more. This is a real hidden gem of a spot located at Yonge and Lawrence.
Saul’s isn’t an organic spa, but all the products used on the vast skincare menu are SLS (sodium lauryl or laureth sulphate) and petrochemical free, which is more than you could expect from any mainstream spa. It’s their MO to stock and use high end products that are manufactured with high expectations and tested thoroughly by the staff themselves. An Eminence Organic Pro Yam and Pumpkin Peel is on the menu, if you do want a super-clean facial option.
