C.A.R.E. for your clients with color-coded Intrinsicsfeaturing Intrinsics
Skincare routines have grown increasingly complex over the years. The beauty industry and its consumers understand that skin needs a variety of treatments to maintain that youthful glow. For example, not only have toners been added into the multi-step skincare regimen, but there are different types to target specific areas of concern. There are moisturizers for dry skin, cleansers for oily skin, and thousands of different serums.
So why are you using the same esthetic wipe for everything?
If you want to personalize the skincare routine and the services offered by your spa, different esthetic wipes are essential to the process. For example, 100% cotton wipes are more absorbent, so why would you use this wipe to apply products to a client's skin? Using cotton wipes for removal makes far more sense, simply based on the product's absorbency. Intrinsics has come up with an easy-to-identify, color-coded system that helps you match esthetic wipes for each esthetic treatment you are performing - C.A.R.E. Cleanse, Apply, Remove Exfoliate!
Cleanse • Apply • Remove • Exfoliate
For exfoliation, the level of abrasion becomes more important. 100% cotton isn't quite abrasive enough but gauze, or a cotton-filled gauze product, is. While gauze products are widely used to exfoliate skin during facial treatments, they also remove nail polish really well, too. Once again, you should keep gauze products in your tool box simply for maximum effectiveness. Exfoliation is a critical aspect of any facial or body treatment. Once again, using the right wipes - and not settling by using a simple esthetician wipe for everything - ensures your clients are receiving the best treatments possible and helps you save time and money. Whether you use Intrinsics Cotton Filled Gauze Wipes to remove product, rub in an exfoliant, or even remove nail polish, these wipes are a great addition to the finishing touches of any facial.
Cleanse - White label
Gentle Cleansing Towels
Intrinsics Gentle Cleansing Towels are a great tool for cleansing skin before a facial or any area of skin before waxing. 100% hypoallergenic and infused with white tea and bamboo botanicals, these 100% cotton wipes work with any skin type. They do not contain parabens, sulfates, artificial colors or fragrances. Also, these gentle cleansing towels are biodegradable and compostable which means they are good for your clients and the Earth!
Apply - Red Label
Intrinsics Silken Wipes
For product application, poly/rayon (blended) products work best. Intrinsics Silken Wipes are a soft blend of fibers that are only slightly absorbent, making them perfect for applying facial products to the skin, or for applying cooling gels and creams following a wax treatment. You want to ensure that the facial products you apply end up on your client's skin, and not within the wipe you're using (and ultimately in the trash). That's why you should use a moderately absorbent option for application. Intrinsics Silken Wipes are ideal to use when applying precious treatments because the majority of the product is transferred to the skin, not left on the esthetic wipe. Another bonus: this Silken Wipe is non-linting, which means no residue left behind to clean up before the next product is applied.
Remove - Green Label
Intrinsics 100% Cotton Rounds
When it comes to removal, 100% Cotton Rounds really shine. One of cotton's most impressive properties is its absorbency. Why would you not want to use one of the fiber's greatest strengths when it comes to removal? 100% cotton products are just abrasive enough to provide a gentle level of exfoliation during this step, all while remaining suitable for clients with sensitive skin. And when thinking about saving time and money, removal illustrates this aspect perfectly. It would take multiple poly/rayon wipes to remove products from the face or body, while in most cases one 100% cotton product would do the trick.
