The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong Debuts Sodashi , Hong Kong’s First Completely Chemical-Free Spa Range

HONG KONG, 23 April 2013 - From late May 2013, The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong will debut a truly 100% chemical-free spa and skincare range – Sodashi exclusively in Hong Kong.  Sodashi proves that 100% chemical-free skincare and therapies can be luxurious and do achieve exceptional results. 

The Oriental Spa at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, recently awarded Asia & Australasia’s ‘Hotel Spa of the Year’ at The World Spa & Wellness Awards, will offer an authentic chemical-free range of high performance products and exquisite signature treatments, delivered by a master team of therapists to ensure skin is dramatically regenerated and a deep sense of well-being is imparted to spirit and mind. Guests will also enjoy the luxurious, unadulterated amenities of Sodashi in-room, and can indulge in an All-Natural Afternoon Tea at MO Bar. Crafted with 26 hand-selected ingredients to heal one’s body from within, the hotel’s new afternoon tea completes a truly holistic and authentic well-being journey.

Greg Liddell, General Manager of The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong said, “We are thrilled to partner with Sodashi to bring the world’s finest chemical-free spa range to Hong Kong. The products are effective and pleasurable to use, and will no doubt delight and satisfy our guests.”

Megan Larsen, Sodashi Founder explained, “Globally there is a growing demand for effective chemical-free skincare that delivers real anti-ageing results. At Sodashi we blend therapeutic-grade natural ingredients to formulate high performance skin care. If we can’t make it naturally, naturally we don’t make it. The results are extraordinary.”

“We are delighted to be working with the award-winning Landmark Mandarin Oriental and are excited about creating an all-natural experience for the hotel’s discerning guests,” she added.

Ayurvedic inspired, Sodashi is a Sanskrit word that translates to wholeness, purity and radiance. Its products are formulated using only therapeutic-grade natural ingredients and contain no synthetic ingredients or preservatives. Applying a holistic approach to health and wellness, and offering Sodashi’s most powerful de-ageing formula, Samadara, The Landmark Mandarin Oriental will create personalized and unique experiences including four major highlights.
