From luxury hotel spas to independent boutiques, Hong Kong offers an abundance of choice for pampering and unwinding from city life. The increasing awareness of sustainability and the environment in today’s society is being implemented in retail and spa therapies alike—moving towards a cruelty-free, nature-based lifestyle. Finding the right ingredients for your body is crucial, and what better way to cleanse than with the cleanest, organic sources refraining from any harmful chemicals and toxins against the skin. Cha Siu Papers has rounded up the Top Eco Spas in Hong Kong, based on ingredients, treatments and brand ethos.
