With a wide variety of products to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect item to turn your bath into your own at-home organic spa. You can also find a great gift for any occasion for men or women. Learn more about EclipseSpa and its products in this interview and product review.

The Birth of EclipseSpa

When asked how EclipseSpa got its beginning, company president Anne Fazio Keefe said, "I started EclipseSpa because I believed in the many rejuvenating benefits of spa treatments. After receiving many spa treatments at various day spas and resorts with my husband, Michael, I decided to bring home these experiences by creating EclipseSpa."

With several years of sales experience in dental technology, she was able to cultivate the entrepreneurial skills needed to start her own business. "My vision for EclipseSpa is to have our customers use these products to create the spa experience at home," she said.

EclipseSpa Website

The first thing you will notice upon visiting the EclipseSpa website is the beautiful, relaxing music. It is from the company's Escape Volume 1 CD, which is a collection of soothing tracks available for purchase. You can listen to sample 30-second tracks, order the CD for instant download or purchase the CD to be delivered.

The rest of the site is beautifully designed and features 41 products with a promise of more on the way. Products include the Rejuvenate Collection, the Escape Collection, the Celebrate Gift Collection, a Bath and Travel Collection, candles, a men's product line and an eclectic collection of books.

According to Fazio Keefe, there is currently in development a new wine therapy body scrub, a men's after-shower body moisturizer and an organic massage oil. She says, "I have spent a lot of time creating the right scenting blend of essential oils to enhance the wonderful ingredients that these products have." Her hard work has paid off with an awesome selection of products that will make you feel pampered and revived.

Healthy and Natural

All EclipseSpa products are created using all natural, healthy ingredients that are also organic. The idea is that, since your skin is the largest organ of your body, you don't want it to absorb things that have been saturated with chemicals. Not only are the ingredients natural and safe, they are not tested on animals and are biodegradable so they are not harmful to the environment.

Fazio Keefe says, "My personal favorite products are my organic sugar, soy and tea bath, the organic body moisturizers and the hand-crafted soaps. The tea bath has amazing chemical-free bubbles. You can tell the difference between the mass-produced bubble baths and the bubbles in the organic tea bath. There really is a difference."

However, being "green" doesn't just stop at the company's products. They are also committed to using sustainable or recycled resources for their packaging and business supplies. Even the product containers are recyclable.

One of many indulgent products.

Ingredients

An impressive list of ingredients includes many luxurious elements. Fair Trade hand-harvested Shea butter from Africa, omega-6 and omega-9 oils, Hawaiian Noni fruit, cold-pressed olive oil and organic herbs all help to enhance your skin and relax your muscles. All products are also Paraben-free for those with sensitivities. Other "superstar ingredients" include:

  • Aloe Vera-known since ancient times for it's healing and rejuvenating properties.
  • Gotu Kola-considered a fountain of youth from China, this aids in renewing skin cells for a more youthful appearance.
  • Horsetail-an excellent source of silica to strengthen the hair, skin and nails.

Affiliations

EclipseSpa is a proud member of Co-op America. "Co-op America is a fantastic organization of green businesses," Fazio Keefe says. "EclipseSpa successfully completed the screening process, which basically means that customers can be confident that EclipseSpa operates in ways that support workers, communities and the environment."

As signers of The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, they stand firm in their resolve to produce safe, luxurious home spa products. They are also a proud sponsor of Necessities, a non-profit organization that provides support to women who have undergone mastectomies. Generously, EclipseSpa provides gift bags filled with items and information to these women after their surgery.

Product Review

I had the pleasure of sampling part of the EclipseSpa product line. The CD is, of course, fantastic. It is perfect to listen to while de-stressing from work as well as during a relaxing bubble bath.

For that bubble bath, there is nothing better than the Organic Sugar, Soy and Tea Bubble Bath from the Escape Collection. The product has an incredible lavender scent. It is obvious that Fazio Keefe spent a great deal of time finding the scent that truly represented lavender instead of a perfumey fragrance. It truly must be experienced to appreciate it.

The silky lavender Body Moisturizer from the same collection is equally entrancing, with a light fragrance that makes your body melt. After using these fantastic products you will certainly agree that the spa experience isn't a luxury; it is a necessity to recover from the stresses of everyday life.

Either as a gift or a gift to yourself, EclipseSpa products will always fit the bill. LoveToKnow would like to thank Anne Fazio Keefe for taking the time for this interview.
