Luxury treatment Biologique Recherche has just been added to One&Only’s superlative spa menu
On its own island in the One&Only Cape Town Resort, lies a secluded spa retreat. A veritable oasis surrounded by water and vegetation, One&Only Spa offers tailored holistic experiences; ranging from pure relaxation to unique and signature wellness journeys. The One&Only Spa has won the World Spa Awards three years running – unsurprising given the setting and amenities it offers.
The Spa has recently added a new world-class treatment to its menu. Biologique Recherche, founded more than 40 years ago by clinical Doctor Philippe Allouche is a treatment that uses an innovative skin assessment and treatment system and a unique range of high-end skincare products – all formulated with high concentrations of active ingredients derived from natural or biotechnological compounds. Biologique Recherche complex formulas have no added Parabens, SLS, or Silicones and are cold formulated to preserve their integrity, as well as being fragrance free.
Pure concentrated raw ingredients from botanical, marine and biological actives are used to optimise the products’ efficacy. For further skincare potency, Biologique Recherche has developed a unique computerised diagnosis, product and treatment prescription system, the Skin Instant Lab©, which monitors the changes of the skin over time and tailors treatment to meet each client’s needs.
Post or pre treatment refreshments and downtime in the Thermal Suites (vitality pool, sauna, steam room, ice fountain, and luxurious ‘experience’ showers) and lounge, allow guests to unwind before and after their appointments. If the weather allows, there’s also an outside garden area, complete with a serenity pool and loungers.
