What makes the St. Ives Mixing Bar possible?

The St. Ives Research & Development design team developed a new & innovative technology that’s a proprietary blend of ingredients that are in a concentrated convenient flake form. This technology allows for a consumer product experience like no other. With this technology, customized lotions, moisturizers, and face scrubs can be made in minutes using a high-speed Shark Ninja blender resulting in high quality, unique products designed specifically for and by each consumer.

Why use a Shark Ninja blender to make the scrubs, moisturizers and lotions sold at the St. Ives Mixing Bar?

We wanted a way to deliver the highest quality product to the consumer as quickly as possible. We’ve experimented with many different methods of making body lotions, face scrubs and moisturizers using our new innovative technology and found that a high speed blender produces a unique and consistent lotion, scrub and moisturizer. We are proud to partner with Shark Ninja to power our unique bar experience. Thanks to the Ninja Chef High-Speed Blender, we can deliver high quality product at a fast and efficient pace.
