Couples Products a Big Hit at ISPA

As a first time exhibitor and the only company offering couples products at this year's, ISPA Expo held in Las Vegas November 6-9, C&M CouplesTM ( turned heads. "It's a beautiful, tasteful and perfectly thought out collection. I would even introduce it to my parents!" said Robert Seibel, Assistant Spa Director at The Ritz-Carlton in Naples Florida.

"Today's busy couples are looking for ways to reconnect. They're going to destination resorts and spas that offer special packages that enhance their romantic weekends and are designed to be playful and educational. However, these resorts and spas haven't had any tasteful couple's products to offer as part of those packages—until now" said Martha Van Inwegen, Founder of Life Elements, Inc., creators of C&M Couples.

C&M Couples unique products are now being offered as an enhancement to romance packages and retail programs by some of the industries finest including: The Ritz-Carlton in Naples, FL, The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa in Sonoma, CA, Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa in Indian Wells, CA, U.S. Grant in San Diego, CA, Miraval Life in Balance in Tucson, AZ, Sea Ranch Lodge in Sea Ranch, CA and BodiScience Holistic Spa in Beverly, MA.

What makes C&M Couples different from other bath & body products offered at ISPA is that the collection is specifically created for couples. The use of natural and sensuous aromatherapy ingredients inspire touch and help rekindle and ignite a couple's connectedness. C&M Couples offers two lines that together honor the natural yin-yang in every relationship: Inspire RomanceTM - uses essential oils and scents such as pink grapefruit, bergamot, frankincense, sandalwood, cedar and lavender to calm and relax the spirit — a perfect blend for those quiet moments when couples just want to bond and pamper each other. Create PassionTM - boasts of aphrodisiac oils such as Ylang Ylang, Black Pepper, Ginger, Patchouli and Jasmine to heighten the sensual energy when they want to be playful.

"Everything a couple needs to stay connected from the ambient start to the lingering finish are included in the line—candles, linen mist, bath & shower gel, massage crèmes, personal lubricant and even an intimacy towelett. All it takes is four to six small steps to get things started...step one — light a candle, step two - mist the linens, step three — draw a bath, step four — touch. If things get a little hotter, go on to steps five and six where you can get sensuous and stay connected. Men love the simplicity— they no longer have to figure out what products to purchase to set the mood and rekindle the romance. We've done the thinking for them" said Van Inwegen.

"It's a brilliant concept and fits perfectly into our own philosophy and teachings" said Dawn Tardif, owner of BodiScience Holistic Spa.

C&M Couples individual products are sold retail from $18 to $32, with the most popular selling item — The Travel Set "Lunchboxes" —selling for $48 and $55. The C&M Couples Travel Sets come in both collections and are filled with 2oz goodies from the entire product line. They are perfect for a weekend getaway, long vacations or as a gift for bridal showers and anniversaries.

All the products are formulated in U.S. Laboratories and are elegantly designed by Life Elements. "We never use synthetic fragrances or perfumes, parabens or test on animals, which is so important to our philosophy of well being" said Van Inwegen.
