From L to R:Hidden Reef, Deep, Ripple Effect, Ebb & Flow, Lucid, Undercurrent
SpaRitual is pleased to introduce Water 2012 for spring, which is inspired by the creative flow of energy that travels through us, much in the same way water travels through the earth. The collection encourages us to listen to the undercurrents of our subconscious that allows positive thoughts, emotions, and creativity to rise to the surface of our conscious mind. Each nail lacquer also serves as a gentle reminder that protecting our natural resources for generations to come is vital.
The global water crisis does exist and as SpaRitual ritualistically supports an organization that is aligned with the brand’s environmental, health and wellness platform, this spring they have chosen to collaborate with the organization Surge for Water. Twenty per cent of the proceeds of the Water nail lacquer collection will be donated to the organization whose mission is to deliver clean drinking water to those who are in need.
Surge for Water, created by Chicago-based activist Shilpa Alva, is a U.S. non-profit organization that improves access to clean, safe water for communities around the world that need this resource for drinking or plant irrigation. Surge for Water increases public awareness of the global water crisis through education and investment in sustainable solutions that can alter peoples’ lives worldwide.
“Water is a necessity that no one should have to live without and together we hope to make sure that everyone has clean, functioning, purifying systems. This is a valuable partnership for us because SpaRitual sees the importance of expanding our reach to enable clean water to be part of every community.” – Shilpa Alva
“The Water Collection represents the importance it has for our physical well-being (up to 70 per cent of the human body is composed of water) and our emotional health (it’s a proven fact that water provides soothing benefits). Sadly, communities around the world lack access to clean drinking water,” says SpaRitual founder, Shel Pink. “We’re pleased to be involved with Surge for Water and to support the foundation’s efforts to help provide clean water systems worldwide.”
As a philosophy-driven brand, SpaRitual is deeply committed to helping one person at a time whether it is through direct support of safe drinking water or by sourcing safe ingredients.
