How CND™ Scentsations™ Hand Washes Boosts Safety, Confidence
Salon wellness is one of the most important factors to the success of any salon. One of the easiest ways to gain client trust and ensure loyalty is to give them confidence in your universal sanitation and service protocols. For Tara Heriford, a CND Education Ambassador in Springfield, IL, introducing CND’s 5-Point Cleansing Method using Scentsations Hand Wash to her clients allowed her to prove she takes their health and safety seriously.
The 5-Point Cleansing Method by CND is a technique designed to ensure clients’ safety by removing surface pathogens. “When introducing this technique I simply explained the importance of safety and wellness in the salon and demonstrated the 5-Point Cleansing Method for them,” Heriford said. “Reinforcing the importance of cleaning, not only the palms and backs of the hand, but the fingers and fingertips as well.”
Heriford says this technique was easy to introduce to clients. Here’s how to execute it:
Both nail professionals and their clients should wash hands with CND™ Scentsations™ Hand Washes and water for at least 20 – 30 seconds before and after every service. Wet hands under warm running water to cover all surfaces of the hands. Leave water running this procedure. Place enough liquid hand soap in the palm of your hands to cover all surfaces of the hand.
CND recently launched a new line of CND™ Scentsations™ Hand Washes to match their well-known Scentsations Lotions that have been reintroduced with new packaging. The Scentsations Hand Wash are vegan, moisturizing and formulated with glycerin and enriched with jojoba esters to cleanse the skin without over-drying. They're also pH balanced to respect the skin and protect your natural skin barrier. They are available in four refreshing scents including Citrus & Green Tea, Mango & Coconut, Jasmine & Cedarwood, and Rose & Peach. The well-known line of lotions are ideal for post-washing and are dermatologically tested and feature an intensively moisturizing formula that absorbs quickly to soften dry skin and restore essential moisture to hands and body. The Scentsations Lotions are available in five scents including Citrus & Green Tea, Mango & Coconut, Tangerine & Lemongrass, Lavender & Jojoba, Black Cherry & Nutmeg.
To amplify a good technique, you need a good product. Using quality systems that can deliver calculated results for safe use is important for salon wellness and to maintain a reputable reputation. That’s why for Kris Kiss, a CND Education Ambassador in Long Island, NY, she paired the 5-Point Cleansing Method with CND’s Scentsations new line of Hand Washes. “I love that I can offer my clients a high-quality hand wash, instead of something that will dry they’re skin out,” Kiss said. “Everyone is washing their hands more often, but with the great fragrance of Scentsations, washing your hands is an enjoyable experience.”
“I have always been a huge fan of the Scentsations lotions. Hydration along with a wonderful selection of scents to please every client.” said Toni Periatt, a CND Education Ambassador in Midland, MI, “With the easy to pump bottles there is no deep dive into a jar of lotion and the hand wash can easily be wiped with sanitizer for the next guest at the sink.”
While the new line of Hand Washes help reduce the amount of pathogen on both client and nail pros hands, allowing you to provide a safe and clean start to each service, now you can also end the service with a matched scent by providing a therapeutic massage using the Scentsations lotions. Adding these items to your retail offerings can help boost your bottom line and maintain clients’ moisturizing needs. “It’s great to have matching washes and lotions as Scentsations are great products to use in your services and great retail items your guests can take home,” Kiss said.
