Eco-fin is a natural, petroleum-free alternative to paraffin. A rich blend of palm, soy, jojoba and organic coconut oils are gently warmed with shea butter, vitamin E and essential oils, then applied to your hands and/or feet with a brush, and covered with heated mitts/booties. When the mitts/booties are removed, the remaining product gets massaged into your skin, leaving it soft and supple. This treatment makes a delightful Add-On to any massage.
