BORÉAL / A holistic ritual with high-performance skin care

More than ever, people are looking for effective natural products with a thoughtful composition and tangible benefits. Strøm Nordic Spa responds to this need and presents its BORÉAL skincare line, officially launched last fall. Deeply rooted in the philosophy of Strøm Nordic Spa, this range of products offers performance and naturalness, without compromise.

The power of nature is revealed

Soothing and regenerating, nature is an inexhaustible source of balance. Did you know that black spruce, blue honeysuckle, red maple, jack pine, wild chamomile or even white cedar have benefits for the skin? This is how each BORÉAL product, made from Nordic active ingredients, is an invitation to honour not only nature, but also one’s own nature.

By offering our skin local essences in perfect harmony with what surrounds us, we celebrate the direct link between skin, nature and spirit; with an understanding that everything is linked from an overall beauty perspective. Through a gesture or an olfactory memory specific to the spa, BORÉAL treatments act as catalysts of well-being by propelling us into the heart of the boreal forest and by reviving this feeling of plenitude which is at the source of everyone’s beauty.

A comprehensive beauty approach

Reproducing a spa treatment with personalized gestures allows everyone to become the creator of their own beauty ritual. The advantage of the BORÉAL range is notably to be able to recreate the Strøm experience at home.

“We wanted to offer a nomadic complement to the Strøm experience in order to allow everyone to bring back gestures, movements, textures, smells, results, but also the feeling of well-being that comes with it. The idea was therefore to make this ritual possible at home.” – Julie Morin, treatment director who supervised the creation of the line

Experience the range by discovering the six steps of face care and creating a personalized routine tailored to your needs.
