and the origin of ReSqu
We have been designing, developing, and producing organic vegan skin care for over a decade. You can find more information about Tres Spa and see our full line at our website.
As with many of our product innovations, our inspiration comes from the requests of others. ReSqu is a good example of one of those times. For years I stayed away from CBD because of the environmentally deleterious effects many of the processes had. Traditional methods involved a good deal of solvents and toxic chemicals, and that was just in the extraction phase. The growing phases had their own issues with chemicals used to grow the plants in un-natural settings.
Then my 85 year old Dad, being both persistent and persuasive, kept asking. He had just gone through hip replacement and had one knee replaced and one knee pretty much “bone on bone”. I kept telling him no because I cannot go against my commitment to sustainability.
Then the stars aligned and I was introduced to some amazing new producers who had already established a leadership role in sustainability. While they were new to the CBD industry, they were not new to the eco conscious discipline in growing, harvesting, and producing exceptional whole plant ingredients for culinary and industrial applications. They took those practices to growing, harvesting, and producing an exceptional Hemp Extract. Vegan, Organically grown, and Sustainably extracted.
After experimenting and testing the Full Spectrum CBD Hemp Extract, it was clearly time to launch a new product. The name is a tribute to my Dad, the inspiration for ReSqu. His initials are a part of the product name. My Dad would like you to know that he is thoroughly enjoying the oil and the lotion but the Balm is his favorite. His golf game hasn't been this good in years and he has now taken up cycling on his new recumbent trike bike. Taking on hills like a beast.
Another benefit of ReSqu by Tres Spa is that it helps support a sustainable business that is working to improve the lives of islanders with good paying jobs not dependent on tourism. We think that is a worthy cause.
