The Warmth of the Tropics, in the palm of your hands.
Tiger Clam shells, sand polished by the locals in the Phillipines. Each shell heats naturally when a chemical reaction takes place as a saline solution is absorbed into lava gel and lava rock, creating a dry exothermic heat.
Lava Shell treatments are exclusive to Beechdown Beauty Spa in the Basingstoke and North Hampshire area
The History of Lava Shells
Lava shell is a 100% natural tiger clam shell. It is sourced in the Philippines and is collected from a food waste product. This not only provides food but also jobs for the local industry on the island. The locals prepare the shell for use in massage by sand polishing them in to a smooth tool and glueing them back together and cutting a small hole to place the sachets inside.
The two sachets mix together to form a chemical reaction and create an exothermic heat.
The dry sachet contains minerals of Magnesium and Iron, mixed with absorptive powders. The activator is a saline solution and is poured on to the dry sachet inside the shell. This forms the exothermic reaction which creates the heat. The shells used at Beechdown Beauty are genuine 100% natural Tiger Clam shells.
