Uspa began in 1995 in Melbourne, Australia when founder George Jilly imagined a product that would restore the entire being. In keeping with use by the great German naturopaths, he chose clays from the earth as his medium. Wrapped in natural cloth, the clays offered the way to restoration and repair, infused with a synergistically chosen herbal complex and essential oil blend. Followed with a complete body massage, clients felt restored and rejuvenated. The treatment with aromatic face massage and Balinese Body Palming remains a cornerstone treatment for Uspa in over ten countries.
Uspa grew to encompass Uskincare, and in 2000, the range was introduced at the Extracts show in New York. George found like-minded people looking for a range that created an experience for the client while creating positive change. This niche market embraced the streamlined product range setting the stage for further grassroots growth, including Sydney, growing into one of our largest markets globally.
Over the next few years, Uspa continued branching out through the hands of professionals, and in 2004, launched in Ireland. Destination spas were inspired to showcase a real point of difference with our authentic treatments. Clients responded to the results and returned again and again for the experience.
Uspa introduced Uhaircare, allowing spas to integrate the sensory experience into the salon. In 2007, Uspa entered the highly competitive markets of China and Japan, where positive results have created a strong brand presence.
The Ucolour Therapy range of lipsticks is introduced, reflecting the healing properties of colour vibration, the chakras, and the power of affirmations in nourishing mineral based lip colours. The offering is a reflection of Uspa's continuing strength of introducing products that reflect an experience or story.
Uspa introduced the Supernatural ranges for hair care and men's skin care, with global launches continuing through 2010.
Most recently, Uspa began its integrated destination amenities, spa and treatment program. The synergy between a spa destination and amenities in the same location has significantly kept Uspa on the forefront of our customers minds. It provides a unique oppurtunity to cross promote between the spa and the guest. With great success, Uspa can be found and experienced at QT Hotels around Australia, including Port Douglas, Gold Coast, Falls Creek and Sydney.
We look forward to a future that incorporates the latest technology in botanical chemistry as clients continue to search for sophisticated options to increase the rate of improvement in the skin. We strive to lead the way in sustainability efforts in manufacturing, and see this synergy as the core of our future.
Clients responded to the results and returned again and again for the experience.
