Reawaken skin’s radiance with Amala’s latest range

Amala’s latest skincare breakthrough for spas is the high performance Brighten collection. Powered by the brand’s new BioRadiance ingredient complex, which blends narcissus with other healing organics, this collection has been proven in third-party clinical trials to deliver firmer skin and refined texture in just four weeks, and brighter, more even tone in just eight weeks.

In keeping with Amala’s brand ethos, the Brighten range relies exclusively on a synergistic cocktail of nature’s most powerful brightening plant actives to deliver extraordinary results.

Each formula in the collection takes an intensive, dual-action approach to prevent and correct the appearance of dark spots and dull, uneven skin tone. Standout products are the Brightening Corrective Concentrate serum and the Advanced Brightening Emulsion facial moisturiser.

Form & function at Klafs

“Minimalist in design and yet fascinatingly diverse” is how Klafs describes its new D6 steamroom. The modular system is available in various sizes, layouts and optical designs. The seats are self-supporting/not integral so they can be removed for versatility. This also prevents water build up on benches. Coloured walls (pictured), or walls with pictures on are just two of the design options.

Flexible flooring from ABK: glue-free and auto-levelling

Automatic yielding module for xPlan software system

The new xPlan automatic yielding module by Dimmbizz will set a new trend in the spa industry according to the software firm. It enables spas to emulate the complex, fluctuating pricing structures in the flight and lodging industries – a sales technique which will boost revenues.

Spas start by analysing their KPIs, then they can configure their business rules and xPlan will to the rest seamlessly. The rules can be applied to any channel – walk-in appointments, online bookings, mobile users or even external distribution.

Dimmbizz CEO Damien Tamisier says: “Imagine that you can win a minimum order of one dollar on average per treatment or activity, only by using an automatic yielding system. Multiply that with your number of activities and you have a profit.” He also says the module will encourage guests to switch from being last-minute to early bookers.
