Being Green

 

What is an Eco-­Friendly Spa?

At Nubia, we take the health of our clients and the earth at heart!

“Our mission is to make our clients feel good by adopting a global collective consciousness of the world and the human being! Our products, our care and our setting must share the same goal!”

Michelle Regev, founder and manager of Nubia Spa Vert.

At Nubia, each product is carefully chosen for its beneficial qualities for your body and the environment. Each component of our decor is dedicated to your relaxation and the benefit of the planet!

Spa is often synonym of relaxation and quietness of the senses but the more polluting aspect of it is often forgotten, even unknown. Unfortunately, spas and regular body care are often very exotic, as much for the body as for the environment. Residential bathrooms are a major source of daily intoxication (1), so imagine a spa!
