While one-off organic spas with fastidiously natural skin-care treatments have always existed, now a number of high-end hotel spas are adding all-natural, non-toxic spa treatments to their menus. These hotels spas are catering to a customer whos concerned about chemicals in her cosmetics and wants beauty treatments to be as carefully sourced and crafted as her dinner at ABC Kitchen (or groceries at Whole Foods). Here are five hotel spas offering luxurious all-natural facials:
1. The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach
The South Florida spa just debuted eco-luxe treatments with Amala, which means most pure in Sanskrit. It contains no synthetic ingredients and whole plant ingredients (and is one of the most popular product lines at Barneys New York). Its pioneering founder, Ute Leube, sources a majority of the ingredients from organic farmers around the world.

2. The Sahra Spa & Hammam at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
Treatments at this brand-new spa use Kahina Giving Beauty, a high-end natural skin-care line based on the benefits of argan oil. This nourishing ingredient is sourced from Berber womens cooperatives in Morocco, and every facial gives 10 percent back to them.

3. The Spa at the Carneros Inn, Napa, California
This spa was one of the first to dedicate its menu to natural treatments, including Red Flowers new skin-care line called Nature, thats inspired by Finlands clean landscape (arctic berries, exfoliating white peat, hydrating cloud milk cream) and healthy track record saunas galore!

4. Fontainebleau Miami Beach
With the debut of her luxe line of non-toxic beauty products, Tata Harper wooed skin-care aficionados who became quickly devoted to her product passion (Harper grows many of the ingredients used in the products at her Vermont farm) and her knowledge (she created the formulas, too). Her sumptuous line is loaded with plant actives for natural results.

5. Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte, North Carolina
This new spa, in the countrys first LEED-certified Ritz-Carlton hotel, offers facials with an in-the-know apothecary line called Lab of Flowers. It uses pure high-quality essential oils (and not much else) to infuse skin with hydration and health, thanks to the de-stressing benefits of aromatherapy.
