Long Haul Spa is an Australian based company with a mission to turn soul-sucking, complexion-destroying long haul flights into an in-seat spa session – so that you hit the ground running at your destination feeling fresh and rejuvenated. And what works so well at altitude is brilliant at sea-level!
After spending 5 years flying between Australia and Canada for business, Chris took the knowledge of the kits that she had curated and refined over 70 flights, and decided it was time to share it with her fellow long haul warriors. Working closely with a natural skincare formulator and chemist in New Zealand, the Long Haul Spa range of products was developed, refined and tested on happy human volunteers at altitude! The result is a suite of skincare essentials that are made from New Zealand and African botanicals, cruelty free, paraben free, vegan, and developed specifically for use in the giant dehydrator that is an airplane cabin.
Our goal was to turn long haul flights from a stressful, complexion destroying event into complexion soothing “me time”. And we did in a big way.
Now that we aren't travelling much (or at all 😩 ) the Long Haul Spa kits have become the go-to home spa/self care kit! A beautiful way to relax and rejuvenate with an easy to follow program that ends in glowing, hydrated skin. And a fantastic way to stay connected with your travel besties - send everyone a Long Haul Spa kit and Zoom or Face Time while the New Zealand botanicals work their magic! And don't gorget the boys - our TARMAC kits are divine.
And when it comes to these uncertain times, we've got your back - with our Aussie made Hand Sanitiser with lemon Myrtle and Aloe, and our Personal Care Kits - containing a 3 layer, super-breathable silk and cotton face mask, hand sanitiser and hand creme - all made in Australia & New Zealand and packed in a beautiful vegan Louenhide case - ready for whatever modified adventure you might be going on - like to the grocery store...🙃
We are constantly in development - testing new ingredients, creating new products, revising packaging. Your thoughts and input are super important to us. YOU are why we do what we do.
Let us know how we are doing, and how we can do it better. Contact us at email@example.com or hit us up on Instagram or Facebook. And share your adventures with us and the rest of the Long Haul Warrior community!
Long Haul Spa recognises the delicate balance between our environment and our needs as a society and we have taken steps to ensure that we support the earth and maintain sustainable practises.
We also recognise the irony - that travel is one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gases. (If you do all of your travel by foot or bicycle you have our profound respect)
So with that in mind we have worked to create a product that is as environmentally and socially conscious as possible. We will continue to modify and iterate the product and the packaging, so if you have any thoughts on how we can do a better job, please let us know.
All of the Long Haul Spa products are crafted in New Zealand, and are vegan and cruelty free. All of our products have been thoroughly tested on willing humans (thank you all for your help!). The ingredients used in our products are ethically and sustainably sourced. All Long Haul Spa products are paraben free and suitable for sensitive skin (but please patch test).
A couple of the Long Haul Spa products are produced in conjunction with Essence of Humanity and So They Can - supporting Satinwood, a children’s home in Miti Mingi Village in Nakuru, Kenya. There the children receive quality education, nutritious meals, medical care and are allowed to be children.
Our beautiful vegan toiletry bags are created by the iconic Australian bagmaker, Louenhide.
Our beautiful BPA free bottles are supplied by Ant Packaging – the first Carbon Neutral plastics factory in Australia. We are all about reusing and recycling. The bottles are recyclable, and all of our printing is done on certified sustainably sourced paper.
We have teamed up with One Tree Planted and for every Long Haul Spa kit that is purchased, one tree is planted to help reforest the planet.
We are dedicated to ensuring that Long Haul Spa treads lightly on our earth and we are continually looking for ways to improve the sustainability of our brand and products. If you have any ideas on how we can do better, please let us know.
