With the organic movement in full swing, headlined by the First Lady's organic garden at the White House, the chic and savvy will opt for nothing but organic nail polish treatments on their summer toes and hands.
At Karma Organic Spa's two New Jersey locations, in Ridgewood and Englewood, environmentally-conscious clients have assured a focus on the natural nail, as well as an amazing boutique spa experience. The smell of fresh lavender, mint, geranium, and rosemary wafts down the street, enticing passing pedestrians and leading them to the door of this attractive haven.
Since opening, Karma Organic Spa quickly became a can't-miss destination in the quaint suburban town of Ridgewood. Owner Nausil Zaheer designed the spa with natural, non-toxic, and recycled materials, from the paint on the walls to the bamboo flooring, providing a Zen-like atmosphere for clients. The spa even tidies up with non-toxic, green products, and all products are packaged in recycled materials. The second location in Englewood continues this tradition of natural, environmentally-safe elegance.
Zaheer's inspiration came from years of experience with standard commercial beauty products. Zaheer dreamed of creating a salon destination where pregnant women, small children, and those suffering from allergies could feel safe knowing that they would not be exposed to the chemicals found in many of the products in conventional salons. Zaheer trained at the Lia Schorr Institute in New York and became a celebrity manicurist working on various types of photo shoots and commercial print advertisements.
Shortly after opening, Zaheer decided to take his project a step forward and is working with others to develop his own line of non-toxic polishes, free from the big three, toluene, formaldehyde, and DBP, as well as a completely organic nail polish remover, derived from soy. Today, the spa boats over 100 traditional, neon, and glow-in-the-dark polish colors as well as lavender, tea tree oil, and unscented remover. Karma Organic Spa, the final product of Zaheer's vision and innovation, is the only known all-natural nail spa in the state.
The environmentally-conscious and trend-focused consumers are catered to, but the average client will find that Karma provides great treatments with top-end products at reasonable prices. Each treatment is specially created with the use of various essential oils, fruits, herbs, and flowers as well as homemade sea-salt and sugar scrubs and scented lotions. Customers can choose from a variety of 10 manicure or pedicure services, the most popular of which include Karma Lavender and Karma Milk and Honey. In addition, every technician is attentive and professional, trained under the watchful eye of Zaheer. Zaheer himself has an engaging, tireless personality, making every woman, teenager, and man feel comfortable and at home while in the spa.
