The Queen’s official 90th birthday is June 11th this year so we’re honouring all things British with our favourite ELEMIS products and treatments that have a particularly proud heritage rooted in the British countryside.
The British Botanical range of Shower Cream, Body Cream and Hand & Nail Butter is redolent with ingredients grown in the idyllic British countryside. Echium oil from plants grown in East Anglia lends the range its deeply moisturising benefits. Rich in Essential Fatty Acids Omega 3 and 6 plus Omega 9, Echium provides exceptional skin-nourishing and soothing properties. Organic Oats grown and harvested in the UK are an abundant source of vitamins and minerals that help to naturally moisturise and comfort dry skin. Burdock has been used for centuries for various skin conditions due to its anti-inflammatory properties and grows prolifically throughout England. Add to this the scents of Lavender and Chamomile and you will be transported to an English country garden.
Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm contains British Starflower, a rich source of Gamma Linolenic Acid which helps improve the skin’s barrier function so that its natural moisture reserves are maintained. Starflower carpets the fields with a beautiful royal blue-indigo which attracts bees and butterflies from near and far. Bees have a preference for the colour blue as they have ultraviolet vision; equally butterflies have a preference for purple. Starflower then, is perfect for attracting wildlife and maintaining the harmony of the ecosystem. To this end, ELEMIS works with British growers to ensure that beehives are placed throughout the fields to encourage the bees to pollinate and thrive; the happy by-product is tens of thousands of pots of honey. As a British brand, our relationship with our growers and their methods of cultivation are really important to us – we’re proud to have this direct connection with the land.
From the country to the city, and more specifically, our townhouse in the heart of Mayfair. The House of ELEMIS is just a stroll away from HRH’s London residence Buckingham Palace, and offers the kind of seclusion and privacy fit for a royal. Why not indulge in our NEW luxurious 3 hour package, A Beautifully British Experience, for you and a guest in The Penthouse? Enjoy a 1 hour Touch or Technology facial plus a 1 hour body treatment. We suggest the Garden of England Rose Restore, a lavishly hydrating body massage and micro-wrap, as rose is rumoured to be Her Majesty’s favourite scent. The bespoke massage uses a unique trio of Rose, Camelina and Poppy oils with a nurturing Rose balm to restore skin elasticity and ground the spirit. Once you’re thoroughly relaxed and seeing the world through rose-tinted glasses, Afternoon Tea from Mews of Mayfair will be served. How very British.
