FrontRunners: Spa-ing Partners

  • William Kissel

In the early 1990s, June Jacobs and Peter Thomas Roth became pioneers in the clinical skin care business by launching a collection of spa products under the Roth label. That brand has since become one of the best-selling product ranges in the highly successful Bliss catalog, as well as one of the five top-selling skin care labels at Sephora shops.

This summer, Jacobs is targeting a much more exclusive skin care audience: luxury spa aestheticians and those who visit them. Her new signature collection of 47 products is heavy on botanical extracts such as cranberry (used as an antioxidant) and cucumber (a soothing agent), but lacking in oils that tend to clog pores. “Many companies still use oils because it is just too expensive to go with a high percentage of extracts,” says Jacobs, who recently established June Jacobs Labs (212.581.5800) with her daughter, Rochelle. “The extracts react directly with the skin, making it look great.”

Jacobs plans to distribute the tonics, cleansing toners, shampoos, moisturizers, masks, and eye creams, priced from $20 to $50, at Canyon Ranch in Las Vegas, the Peninsula Spa in New York, and other premier spas, as well as through a handful of better retail outlets, such as Fred Segal Essentials in Santa Monica, Calif., and SPAce NK in London.
