Lyndall Mitchell grew up on an idyllic 60 hectare fruit farm and native nursery in Queensland. After finishing school she started working at a health retreat with clients that needed a break from their hectic lives.
After a move to Melbourne, Lyndall saw a similar need for those who weren’t able to get to a week-long retreat. In1997 Aurora Spa, the first of its kind in Australia, came to life in a tree lined street in St. Kilda, at the iconic Prince Hotel.
With clients only at the spa for a short period, Lyndall realised the need to create products that would provide effective results in a minimum amount of time. Lyndall formulated and then hand mixed products which ensured genuine therapeutic benefits.
After many requests to take these products home, Lyndall worked with formulation specialists to create the ASPAR retail range. Her aim was to ‘pack nature in a bottle’ using botanically active essential oils and extracts in every product.
The formulations had been tried and tested in over 500, 000 spa treatments delivering their botanically active therapy before being released to the retail market. The range is now featured on the shelves of high-end pharmacy, gift stores, beauty salons and speciality retailers internationally.
You will also come across the best-selling Botanical hand wash in the bathrooms of the best restaurants, bars, hotels, fitness and health studios.
The Qantas Partnership
In 2015 ASPAR was chosen by QANTAS as their official skincare provider and features in over 40 Qantas lounges globally. ASPAR flight amenity kits have been gifted to over 1 million passengers in first and business class. The range is also used for treatments in Qantas first class spas in Melbourne and Sydney airports.
Our Ultra Hydrating face moisturiser was specifically formulated for the rigours of in-flight conditions. It has now been added to our retail range in response to demand from returning passengers.
When you use an ASPAR product, your senses will be transported to the spa with every deep breath leaving you more relaxed and renewed with every use.
