Meet the Exhibitors: Sweet Beauty Spa

We are excited to announce that Sweet Beauty  - Organic Chocolate Spa Treatments will be joining us for the Eco-Chic Expo. There are a million spa products out on the market but there are some very unique qualities of Sweet Beauty that we think make them stick out far above the rest.

Here is what we love about Sweet Beauty:

  • Every Sweet Beauty Spa product starts with a base of organic fair-trade certified chocolate and cocoa butter, sourced from Theo Gourmet Chocolate in Seattle, Washington.
  • Every batch of Sweet Beauty products is hand crafted by founder, Lisa Francoise.

  • Sweet Beauty guarantee that all their products are made from 100% natural ingredients, obtained from responsible sources and preserved naturally. The products contain no parabens, pthalates, sulfates, fragrances, artificial colors, synthetic emulsifiers or silicones.
  • Did we mention that these products are made with Chocolate?? There are numerous benefits to using chocolate in Spa products such as incredible antioxidant protection and profound effect on your mood, creating a feeling of deep relaxation and satisfaction.
To find out more about Sweet Beauty, the ingredients or products you will be able to sample and buy at the Eco-Chic event, visit  Sweet Beauty Organic Spa Treatments.
