Believe it or not, there is a way to slow down in NYC: getting nourishing, natural and organic skincare elixirs slathered all over face—with a high-tech treatment here and an extraction there. When you’re looking for the best organic skincare facial in New York, these top three spas deliver non-toxic, effective “oooh this is sooo worth it” experiences.
- Tracie Martyn
For over 20 years, Tracie Martyn, originally from the United Kingdom, has been developing skincare technology and products that harmonize the wellbeing of your skin, your health and the planet.
Founded by Tracie and holistic nutritionist Marius Morariu, the spa has been working hard to deliver highly concentrated, pure and effective nutrients to faces that are recognized around the world—and they’re not afraid to drop the names of glowy-faced A-list celebrities who have trusted their products and treatments for years (ehem, Rihanna and Julia Roberts).
Their non-toxic and non-invasive technology, including the Resculpting Facial and Beyond Microcurrent technology, provide natural alternatives to people looking to avoid fillers and facelifts.
Today, located in a gorgeous penthouse in Flatiron, their innovative technology and organic solutions are a favorite of everyone and anyone who wants to leave with HD-ready skin. Tracie Martyn also offers a line of serums, exfoliants, cleansers, toners, creams and sunscreen you can buy and take home.
- Savor Spa
Savor Spa founder Angela Jia Kim was a concert pianist before launching her beauty brand. Until one night, when she was on stage performing, an incident changed everything: Angela’s skin broke out in hives from a “natural” lotion she used—in front of hundreds of people.
She decided it was time to elevate the standard for natural and organic skincare, and Savor Spa was born.
Using organic, natural and sustainable ingredients as much as possible, Savor Spa offers facials, makeup and massages along with a full line of face and body care products. Savor Spa is known for its pure, luxury ingredients including white truffle extract, pumpkin and raspberry seed oils, coconut cream and chardonnay grapeseed oil.
Located in New York City and Hudson Valley, Savor Spa’s products are made fresh and produced locally in small batches. The spa works with women hired through the Dollars & Scents program, which helps women transition back into the workforce after taking time off to raise their kids.
- Kristen Leigh Organic Skin Care
After 27 years of working beside makeup artists and European skincare professionals, Kristen cultivated a deep understanding of how ingredients found in nature have the power to nourish skin. So, naturally, with a focus on organic and holistic techniques, Kristen launched her private skin care Kristen Leigh Organic Skin Care and brow boutique on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, just a block away from Central Park off Madison and Fifth Avenues.
The spa features holistic facials, lash and brow enhancement as well as red light therapy for aging and sun damage and blue light to treat blemishes. Kristen and her team are equipped to treat faces with a variety of concerns for transformative results.
Kristen’s salon uses products from Eminence Organic Skin Care, which provides natural, organic and hand-picked ingredients that are also sustainably harvested. The spa uses Vapour Beauty products, which feature makeup focusing on performance and purity, with clean, responsibly sourced ingredients that meet or exceed international green beauty standards.
You don’t have to get away from the city to get the natural and organic skincare experience your skin has been waiting for. These three spas in New York make it possible to get the best in organic skin care, right in the beloved Big Apple.
