Altearah offers a wide range of signature products based on "One Colour, One Emotion" concept. For the Parfums de Soin, body products and a face range the client can instinctively choose the colour that he or she would like to experience at the moment. This colour corresponds to the client’s need for the moment and will be echoed by the composition of essential oils and active ingredients which compose the products. The colour can also accompany the client in retail products to prolong the benefits of the treatment.
There are 5 essential colour schemes for Altearah products:
- Emerald OXYGEN. Main component: Pine. Its action: Breath, to find oxygen.
