The Sanctuary Spa was born as the ultimate act of love, opened in 1977 in Covent Garden by a man madly in-love with his ballerina wife. The Spa was a place of pure tranquillity where the ballerinas of the Royal Opera House, would retreat to relax, unwind & recover.
Using luxurious formulations inspired by the spa and developed with our therapists, we launched the indulgent Sanctuary Spa bodycare range in 1988. Packed with precious oils, rich butters and our iconic fragrance we continue to evolve our collection year on year.
Today Sanctuary offers so much more than beauty products, expertly created to revive, uplift & replenish whether you have 30 seconds or 30 minutes simply relax, breathe & #LetGo to Find Your Sanctuary.
As of 31st May 2014, after 37 years in its Covent Garden home, Sanctuary Spa has now closed. Proud of the heritage, love and loyalty that the spa has received over the years, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our guests who have supported us over the years.
It is not the end of Sanctuary; it is the beginning of a new journey as we continue to develop and sell our award-winning products which enable even more women to feel nourished & rejuvenated.
Late last year, we asked women about their lifestyle - nearly half said they were feeling moderately or extremely stressed & shockingly 40% feel like they're about to burn out. We weren't surprised, we feel it too.
From our everyday never-ending 'to do' lists to the pressure the media puts on us to be the 'perfect woman'. We rush around trying to do more, be more, give more. But we don’t need to be like this 24/7, it’s not healthy. We need to #LetGo of all this pressure every now & again. Sanctuary are on a mission to get women to Relax, Breathe and #LetGo. So we've created a film with advice from women who truly know the importance of stepping back every now and then and appreciating life’s precious moments.
Sanctuary is delighted to support the charity Wellbeing of Women and has been for several years.
Wellbeing of Women is the charity investing in the future health of women and babies. Established in 1964, Wellbeing of Women invest in research projects and allocate funds towards the training of specialist doctors and midwives. This cutting edge research has been instrumental in creating breakthroughs in the fields of obstetrics and gynaecology, including fetal scanning, IVF and cervical cancer screenings.
While investment in medical research has led to drastic improvements in the survival rates for many other cancers, sadly, almost 8,000 new cases of womb cancer are diagnosed every year in the UK. Take a look at how we supported Wellbeing of Women last year with our hero product Salt Scrub
