100% dedicated to the benefits of tea, the THÉMAÉ Spa brand has linked up with the Groupe GM to launch its line of organically certified hospitality products
Paris, 7th April 2011 – Groupe GM is pursuing its diversification strategy by launching a new range of Organic hospitality products for the hotel sector, in partnership with the spa brand THÉMAÉ. This new line will give Groupe GM’s hotel customers a competitive edge by offering a unique product – unique because THÉMAÉ is the only spa brand in the world to be totally dedicated to tea and its benefits. Spa customers based in high-end hotels have already embraced the THÉMAÉ concept, exclusively offering a range of face and body Spa treatments based on tea. These include the Château de la Bretesche, the Mas de la Fouque in France, the Burj Al Arab in Dubai and the Château des Thermes in Belgium.
“Faced with often vigorous competition in the hotel sector, it is essential for our customers to construct an offering which sets them apart. With our new THÉMAÉ line, hotels will be able to benefit from the first and only range of hospitality products which exploit the extraordinary properties of tea, widely known for its antioxidant benefits. THÉMAÉ is perfectly in tune with the latest trends and it will also be our first combined Spa and Organic range, two characteristics increasingly sought by consumers“, notes Laurent Marchand, President of Groupe GM.
THÉMAÉ products bestow the benefits of tea in each formulation thanks to the Complexe des 4 Thés® (4 Teas Elixir), a blend of regenerating white tea, stimulating black tea, soothing red tea and antioxidant green tea. The THÉMAÉ line of organic hospitality products is ECOCERTi certified and has been awarded the COSMEBIO label, guaranteeing the ecological and biological credentials of its formulation.
“With its 45-country strong international network, Groupe GM is the partner of choice for introducing THÉMAÉ to the hotel sector and supporting the development of our spas. We are keen to introduce our brand to new consumers by inviting them to share our passion for tea“, adds Guillaume Lefèvre, co-founder of THÉMAÉ.
Inspired by the art of tea-making, nurtured in cultures both near and far, THÉMAÉ cosmetics enhance this plant in a thousand different ways with subtly perfumed and sumptuously textured treatments. A millennia-old beverage, after water tea is the second most consumed drink across the world. Containing over 30% polyphenols, it possesses antioxidant powers 200 times greater than those of Vitamin E. Beauty product manufacturers have also discovered that tea possesses firming qualities, making this plant the new ingredient of choice in the preparation of latest-generation beauty formulations.
