With an emphasis on sustainability and a commitment to preserving the Jackson Hole ecosystem, Alpyn Beauty joins the skincare line up at The Spa at Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole with the new Wildcrafted Facial. Creating a delicate balance of nature and nurture, wildcrafted high-altitude plants from the mountains of Jackson Hole are combined with a rose quartz facial massage for the ultimate in skin renewal.
“This new facial not only features a local Jackson Hole-based company, but also highlights indigenous botanicals from the surrounding wilderness, harvested in such a way that puts the land first,” says Spa Director Kimberly Jenkins. “A line that is results-driven and gives back to Grand Teton National Park? Sounds like a win on all accounts!”
This city-chic, mountain-minded facial treatment exfoliates, detoxifies, brightens and infuses skin with intense hydration. Key ingredients include hand-cultivated wild arnica, chamomile, calendula, sage and bakuchiol, known as the “clean” retinol to stimulate collagen levels. Overall benefits of the facial treatment include velvety soft and visibly hydrated skin. The 60-minute treatment is offered for USD 260.
Locally-sourced skincare line Alpyn Beauty uses sustainably harvested, wildcrafted ingredients straight from the mountains of Jackson Hole. The plants are some of the hardest-working and most resilient: botanicals conditioned to survive in an unforgiving climate – high altitude, low humidity, little oxygen, intense sun, harsh wind and heavy snowfall. When applied to skin, they perform just like they do in the wild – preserving, protecting and strengthening skin for increased resiliency, resulting in skin that looks fresh, and feels and behaves more youthfully.
In partnership with Grand Teton National Park Foundation, Alpyn Beauty is helping to re-wild majestic landscapes, allowing indigenous flora and fauna to thrive in their native lands after more than a century of man-made impact. The re-wilding of nearly 4,500 acres (1,800 hectares) of Grand Teton land involves removing invasive grasses, restoring the natural, native sagebrush habitat. It is a delicate and time-consuming process that benefits the wildlife dependent on the park to survive – including bison, elk, mule, deer and badgers.
