Pure Spa Gloves You! Latex, Nitrile, Vinyl and more… nearly 300 glove choices!

Spas and Salons need gloves… lots of them. There are so many choices — some are a matter of preference, others are a matter of necessity based on the treatment.

Latex Gloves:
Latex gloves are available in powdered and powder free (no powder). Some prefer the light powder on the inside as it makes them easier to don (put on) and doff (take off), while others are annoyed by the powder residue on their hands. Latex has perhaps the most natural feel and greatest sensation of touch, but some have latex allergies and should avoid them. Latex gloves are also available with aloe — a great choice over powdered — they are easier to don and doff and don’t have any powder residue… BUT they are more expensive. Latex gloves are available in natural rubber color, black – great to hide stains during hair color and other services, blue, green and more.

Vinyl Gloves:
Vinyl gloves are made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and are latex-free. Since vinyl gloves are not form-fitting, they fit more loosely than latex and are normally a bit less in price. They are also available in powdered and power free (no powder). There are “stretchy” vinyl gloves that more closely simulate latex and they make a great choice for those who prefer the stretchy feel of latex, but can’t wear them due to latex sensitivity issues. Vinyl does not stand up well to acetone – nail techs take note!

Nitrile Gloves:
Nitrile gloves are an oil-based product which have similar physical characteristics of latex gloves. They stretch like rubber, although they have no latex in them. They ofer superior performance in a variety of applications. There are lots of reasons why disposable nitrile gloves are a great choice: they are 3 times more puncture resistant than regular latex gloves, they provide a stronger barrier of protection and offer greater chemical resistance, they have a lower resistance to friction, making them easier to put on and take off your hands, they do not contain any natural rubber latex, so they can be used by anyone with latex allergies, even though they are disposable, nirtile gloves can usually be worn more than once because of their superior puncture and tear resistance, Nitrile reacts to your body temperature and conforms to the shape of your hand, making a snug and comfortable fit. Nitrile does not stand up well to acetone – nail techs take note! Nitrile gloves are available in blue, purple, black, white and more.

Poly Gloves:
Polyethylene Gloves (Latex Free) also called PE gloves or “plastic gloves” are made with materials approved by USDA, provide protection from organic vapors, dusts and mists thus making them a smart choice for any food service application. All of the poly gloves are powder free. These are gloves like you see in many food service uses — they look like baggie material. They are inexpensive and great for certain uses – like hair colorists. However, they do not fit snugly and can be a bit awkward where a high degree of touch is required… they would be a bad choice for facialists! Poly gloves are typically clear.

Whatever your glove needs or preferences, Pure Spa Direct has YOUR glove in YOUR size!

Market The Health Benefits of Spa-Going for Increased Business

We know that closing a sale is about how you present the features and benefits of the product/service/idea you are selling. The challenge, of course, is being able to identify the features of each product/service/idea and craft them into benefits for each individual buyer. Difficult economic times make this even more challenging, as the ideals and necessities of your clients are bound to shift.

Since the ideals and necessities of your clients are changing because of the current financial situation in this country, you need to have a flexible marketing plan to accommodate this change.

One way spas have been embracing this theory is by shifting their spa marketing focus from “peace, relaxation, and self-indulgence” to focus more on health-related benefits. If your clients view your services from a health standpoint, instead of an indulgence standpoint, they will be more likely to factor regular massages, facials, and body treatments into their budgets.

So how do you get your clients to view your services as health benefits? Market the health benefits, of course! Your clients should be able to relate to your marketing strategy. For example, as a working single mother, if I see an ad that says to me “We know you work hard, we work hard too. Using our product will make your health better, and therefore make your life a little easier,” I stop and listen. It is the same with your spa marketing – everywhere, people are living busy, over-scheduled lives, while worrying about money, loved ones, health etc. If your spa marketing says to them, “We know your life is hectic and you don’t always have time, but coming to see us will make you feel better and improve your life,” they will stand up and listen as well!

Another factor in this is how you are selling follow-up sessions to your clients. Explain to your clients how their health and well-being will increase by regularly getting a massage. By showing your clients how their life will improve – better sleep, increased circulation, increased flexibility, increased endorphin release for better mood stability, etc. – by receiving regular massages, they just might sign up for a massage package with you at the end of their session! If, however, you are still selling your massage as an opportunity to relax, you might not see quite as many repeat clients.

These changes in presentation and marketing are not earth-shattering, but they do show the shift in ideals for future generations of clients. Living a healthy lifestyle, though, is not something that is going to go out of style any time soon. By focusing on the health benefits of each of your services, you may find that your clients relate more to the services, and come back for more repeat visits!

Pure Spa Direct wants to help you grow your business! With our selection of over 70,000 products and our knowledgeable, friendly Customer Service staff, we can help you select the best products for your clients and market the health benefits to help your business grow! Call us anytime, Monday through Friday from 8:30AM – 5PM EST, and we will be happy to help!

Black polish for the palm tree design and a thin nail art brush.

Cuticle Care

Don’t waste time with cuticle nippers that can’t do the job! Take a look out our best sellers, with the best feedback!

For the newbies: Jaw size refers to the cutting surface. The longer the jaw, the more cuticle cut with each action. Smaller jaws give finer control to work close to the cuticle or on smaller nail beds.

Mehaz Cuticle Nipper 1/4 Jaw

This is the perfect nipper for trimming cuticles and hangnails with precision. Stainless Steel. Smooth double spring lap joint.

Antoine Cobalt Inox Stainless Steel Cuticle Nipper – #16 Full Jaw by Antoine de Paris

Made of stainless cobalt steel for durability. Manufactured of the strongest stainless cobalt steel for durability. Always the first choice of nail techs due to its sharp blade and long life.

Stainless Steel Flat Slant Tip Cuticle Nipper

Although lightweight, this cuticle nipper is powerful and extremely durable! This sharp 1/4 jaw cutting edge cuts cuticles with accuracy. The handles are designed to fit comfortably in your hand. The flat slant tips of the cuticle nipper prevent you from poking your skin while cutting. Sometimes the tip of the cuticle nipper is too sharp and it can be painful if you accidentally poke yourself. That’s why this cuticle nipper was developed…for protection. So if you are someone who requires extra safety while cutting, this cuticle nipper is for you. But just because the tips are flat doesn’t mean the cutting edge is not sharp. The edge is still very sharp and can cut overgrown cuticles effectively. Precise and sharp, these cuticle nippers will last you a lifetime!
