Take 5: Spa and bath products

Bespoke fragrances, luxury products, and a greater emphasis on organic, sustainable ingredients offer more opportunities to pamper guests. Stephanie Sparrow samples some of the newest products on the market

Larger size luxury

Organic seaweed skincare range Ishga is enhancing its environmental credentials by introducing body wash, shampoo and conditioner in large sizes. The company says the new 250ml containers are its response to hoteliers looking for solutions to reduce single-use plastics
• Ishga is the phonetic derivation of the gaelic for “water”
• Products contain a blend of Hebridean sea-salt water, spring water and seaweed extract
• Seaweed is said to have natural anti-oxidant, healing and anti-ageing properties
• Suitable for sensitive skin, the new body wash is also infused with lemon grass, juniper berry, geranium and lavender essential oils

Grape benefits

Products from French skincare brand Caudalie will be available exclusively from Aslotel from this summer. Founded in Bordeaux in 1995, Caudalie products contain grape seed polyphenols, reputed to have anti-aging properties. The fragrance has grape and white rose at its heart, and its name reflects its origins – a caudalie is a unit measuring the duration of the wine’s flavour on the palate
• Shower gel, body lotion, conditioner and shampoo come in 40ml bottles with flip-top caps. Paper-wrapped soaps come in 25g and 50g bars
• Items can be displayed on a Caudalie bespoke wooden presentation tray (size 205mm x 110mm)
• A 300ml Ecosource dispenser of body and hair wash, conditioner, body lotion or hand wash is also available
