At Alchemie, social and environmental responsibility are two of our core values. We choose recycled, renewable, and sustainable resources in the design of our eco-friendly modern space. We use the highest quality vegan and natural products whenever possible. Organically inspired by nature and the Southern California coastal lifestyle, we alchemized the natural elements-fire, water, earth, wood, and metal to create a sanctuary for beauty rituals and healing. Going green never looked so good.
Using California native succulent plants. Succulents require less water and we only use organic soil.
Cork, Sea Grass, recycled wood, and coconut fiber walls.
Cork is a natural flooring material used for the hallway ramp. It is used as an accent wall feature in each treatment room, and also acts as a feature with sound insulation. It is obtained from the outer bark, and can be harvested sustainably without killing the tree. Cork regenerates in about 10 years.
100% post industrial recycled hardwood composed mainly of scraps from the furniture industry. These scraps are then layered, infused with a VOC-free resin and then cold pressed for an extremely unique and 100% environmentally friendly product.
Low and voc-free paint contribute to a healthy interior environment.
Strand Woven Bamboo is a highly renewable resource that produces 35% more oxygen than trees. Bamboo reaches maturity in four years and when harvested. it does not require replanting. As a feature, its exotic beauty combines exquisitely with its supreme durability.
A five-step water filtration system filters hard water throughout the spa. Additionally, a reverse osmosis water filtration system provides alkaline water to eliminate single-use plastic bottles. Tank-less water heater makes sure water is heated based on demand, which saves energy and space. Low-flow fixtures reduce water usages in toilet flushing.
LED lights and natural lighting for retail area saves energy consumption. Dimmers on all switches.
