Auriga introduces an all new Organic self-tanning treatment

Singapore, 31 January 2012 – Auriga Spa at Capella Singapore will be launching an all new Self-Tanning treatment in April 2012 which will allow guests to enjoy truly natural healthy sun-kissed glow without the negative side effects of UV rays.

Using the Self Tan, a product from The Organic Pharmacy, guests will develop a rich deep tan faster with less sun exposure. The Self Tan has been developed using a unique dihydroxyacetone, the active ingredient in tanning products, which is derived from Sugar Beet. The Self Tan cream is gentle on skin and light in texture making it suitable for all skin types. With this, guests can enjoy a fast, natural and uniform tan for that healthy glow all year round.

Auriga Spa’s Self-Tanning treatment will treat guests to a full body exfoliation to clear off dead skin cells, leaving skin smooth and receptive to the self-tanning products to follow. The next step in the self-tanning treatment process includes moisturising of dry areas before applying the Self Tan.

Auriga Spa’s Self-Tanning treatment will be available from 1 April 2012 and is priced at S$100++ for 60 minutes.

In line with its focus on sun care, Auriga Spa also presents The Organic Pharmacy Sun Care range. This range is unique and ideal for all individuals as it is suitable for sensitive skin, babies and children. In addition, The Organic Sun Care range also offers anti-ageing benefits.

Key ingredients in the Organic Sun Care range include Zinc Clear to offer complete UV protection without whitening the skin. Red, White and Green Tea is used to protect skin cells and DNA from solar radiation and Shea Butter and Rose Hip is present to hydrate and nourish the skin.

Auriga Spa at Capella Singapore is the only spa in Singapore to use and distribute products from The Organic Pharmacy.

Research has shown that the sun is actually the best source of Vitamin D, the lack of which has been associated with various health problems such as hypertension, diabetes, osteoporosis and an increased risk of cancer. Sunshine is important for our well-being however, with the threats of the harmful effects of Ultra-Violet (UV) rays, staying out in the sun is becoming increasingly dangerous, making it harder to get that perfect tan. Auriga Spa now presents an opportunity to enjoy the benefits of being out in the sun and getting that perfect tan without all the negative drawbacks.
