The Post-Treatment Product That Every Client Needs


Acid peels. Microdermabrasion. Dermaplaning. Manual exfoliants. Waxing. What do these diverse treatments have in common? As they break down the desmosomes between skin cells and unearth fresh skin underneath, they leave the skin feeling radiant, renewed, and a little raw.

How do you nurture and protect this fresh skin, to sustain your client’s youthful glow? The secret is SPF.

Most estheticians have long advocated for the daily use of SPF, the stealthy secret to preventative age-defense. But in the treatment room, clients are less concerned about long term solutions, and more concerned with immediate results. That’s why a majority of post-procedure purchases consist of active skincare solutions, or at-home facial tools.

While active ingredients are essential for long-term results, many clients misunderstand the need to nurture their new, baby soft skin—just revealed with the help of your expertise. The best way to prolong an amazing treatment result is nurture, heal, and protect, to keep the skin soft and new.


Meet the most nourishing solutions in sun care, the NEW Calendula Essential Hydrating Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen and Calendula & Butterfly Ginger Eye Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Sunscreen by Naturopathica. Formulated with your clients in mind, these ultra-luxe solutions are the first ever extension of Naturopathica’s most beloved cream, the Calendula Essential Hydrating Cream.

A signature herb in Naturopathica skincare, Calendula has long been prized by herbalists for deeply nurturing and soothing sensitized skin. It is one of the most powerful herbs in our arsenal. “Research has demonstrated that calendula is beneficial in speeding up wound healing, making it a valuable herb in repairing the skin barrier. It’s perfect for post-treatment use,” states herbalist, esthetician, and Naturopathica Founder, Barbara Close. “Use it to repair and renew dry, irritated, or sensitive skin, or to sustain a healthy glow.”


In the NEW Calendula Essential Hydrating Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen, Calendula is paired with Knotgrass, an antioxidant rich botanical that helps visibly improve the texture and appearance of damaged skin, and enhanced with the gold-standard of sun protection: Micronized Zinc Oxide. This mineral, non-whitening sunscreen is suitable for all skin tones and provides the ultimate, physical barrier against UVA/UVB and blue light rays, all of which are particularly damaging to freshly exfoliated skin. Clients should be diligent about post-treatment sun care, even when indoors.

Unlike the face and neck, the delicate eye area is notoriously challenging to protect, and is often the first to show signs of sun damage and aging. That’s why Naturopathica leveraged over two decades of sensitive skin innovation to develop a revolutionary eye solution: Calendula & Butterfly Ginger Eye Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Sunscreen. This gentle, ultra-light eye cream features Butterfly Ginger, a powerful botanical native to Madagascar, to awaken tired eyes and prevent environmental damage—paired with Calendula and Zinc Oxide for overall care and protection.

For dewy, radiant results that last, choose the NEW Calendula SPF Collection to enhance your client’s daily care regimen. Both innovative formulas leave the skin soft, dewy, and perfectly poised for makeup application—for baby-soft skin that extends far beyond the treatment room.
