Groupe GM teams up with the La Sultane de Saba spa brand and unveils an exclusive range of oriental-inspired hospitality products
Paris, 15th December 2011 – Groupe GM, an international leader in hospitality products, is using the La Sultane de Saba spa brand to launch a line of hospitality products for hotel guests. Inspired by ancient oriental beauty rituals, this new range of products, perfumed with amber and enriched with argan oil, offers hotel guests around the world a journey of the senses. The La Sultane de Saba brand brings a touch of luxury and the exotic to the Groupe GM range, features that are both highly sought after by consumers.
“This alliance with La Sultane de Saba means we can offer a unique line of hospitality products, enriched with oriental ingredients and scents. Faced with the ever-increasing demand for Spa products, we wanted to develop an authentic and sensual line offering a veritable journey of the senses”, commented Laurent Marchand, Groupe GM Chairman.
In creating the La Sultane de Saba brand, Vanessa Sitbon has made available all the secrets of oriental beauty recipes traditionally handed down from mother to daughter. The aim of the brand, with its thousands of colours and scents, is to offer its customers a unique exploration of the senses in a distant universe where dreams are paramount. Respecting an extremely strict charter, the La Sultane de Saba hospitality products are paraben-free, not tested on animals and have no animal based raw materials. Argan oil, contained in all the brand’s products, comes from the nut of the argan tree, a Moroccan bush. It is well known for its nutritional and cosmetic values and its many medicinal properties. It is suitable for all skin types.
“As the journey was my source of inspiration and the very essence of my products, it made perfect sense to find them in hotels, places of escape and dreams devoted to individual pleasure. Our new line of products is in keeping with the idea of the journey, because as well as discovering a country, hotel guests will be able to enter a sensory world of unique well-being and relaxation where enjoyment will be present from the first moment. With its international network and experience, Groupe GM was the ideal partner for achieving my goal and strengthening the luxury image of La Sultane de Saba”, said Vanessa Sitbon, the La Sultane de Saba general and artistic director.
To complete the cosmetic range and reinforce the oriental universe of the La Sultane de Saba range, Groupe GM has also developed a line of accessories to complement the cosmetics, presented in non-woven sachets and decorated with the brand’s emblematic logo. It includes a manicure set, sewing kit, shower cap, cotton-buds, pumice stone, comb, shoe mitt, tooth-cleaning set and shaving kit, and every accessory can be ordered individually.
