Adult Children

For a mani-pedi with fewer chemicals and less long-term damage on your skin and nails, take the organic route. You’ll feel better about the service for yourself, your kids and your girls’ weekend away. Holistic-centric products and all-natural salons have been a growing trend in most cities across the country — for those in the Philadelphia area, give these few a try. Even after Mother’s Day, these treatments will make your, or mom’s, weekend.

 

Naturale Salon

Vegan families, rejoice! There is a manicure salon tailoring to you. Naturale Salon paints customers nails with Zoya, the non-toxic, vegan, cruelty-free nail polish line. Relax with the girls enjoying botanical oil treatments and natural facials, while feeling completely at ease in the fume-free salon as Naturale exclusively uses all-natural, chemical-free cleaning products.

 

Raw Lab Spa

Knowing the healing powers of green tea and matcha, it was an obvious next step they would wind up on a salon menu. Opt for the matcha manicure at Raw Lab Spa, boasting healing remedies for dry cracked hands and rejuvenating cells for lasting results. Opt for the suggested, signature, aromatic healing therapy, beginning with soothing, warming exfoliation while hydrating lotions with aroma therapy scents fill the room — top it off with a non-toxic nail paint service.

 

Mi Cumbia Organica

Just over in Center City on Rittenhouse Square, Mi Cumbia Organica is a couple-run business boasting all-natural treatments from milk cuticle soaks, shredded coconut exfoliates and wellness manicures. Enjoy natural ingredients and unique services, completely clean, eco-friendly and easy on sensitive skin. Receive a natural manicure after the ultra-moisturizing coconut oil hand massage and scrub.

 

Juju Salon & Organics

Located in Society Hill, Juju Salon & Organics is a natural-minded family’s dream. Head in for a bio seaweed gel manicure with the girls, or opt for the natural sea-salt scrub or herbal detoxifying mask. Everything in the wind-powered salon is all natural and organic, so take your pick!

 

Any girl’s weekend away wouldn’t be complete without brunch, shopping and a walk around town — especially in a foodie city like Philly. Check out some of our suggestions in the city here and make the most of your girl’s weekend in the City of Brotherly Love.
