Here at The Wellness Sanctuary at Death Valley, we believe in the desert wilderness' transformative power. Our spa services combat the arid Mojave environment, while our wellness services cater to the desert adventurer.
We introduce to you, the world's first phytoactive spa. Seated in the hottest place on earth at 282 feet below sea level, our sanctuary honors its surroundings, by uniting the desert with the sea. We paired a variety of North American cacti with Artemia Salina plankton and created a powerhouse of UV-focused extracts that we infuse into all of our clean, botanical, products made with goodness from the earth.
Both cacti and plankton do an exceptional job surviving under direct sunlight. Cacti are rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, which help maintain the skin's lipid barrier, lock in moisture, and protect from the sun and free radical exposure. With regenerative properties to combat negative effects from the sun, Artemia Salina plankton contains high amounts of diguanosine tetraphosphate, making it one of the best sources of energy used in advanced skincare products.
