The Secret is in the Plant
What Sets Our Product Apart
With well over a decades experience in producing and developing personal care products Tres Spa knows the important role our suppliers are to our success. After all, a truly remarkable finished product starts with the grower.
It took several years, but we found an amazing producer of the most incredibly rich hemp extract. The CBD they create is a Full Spectrum CBD with a complete balance of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. No toxic chemicals are used in any step of their planet friendly growth, harvesting, and extraction process. Every step is done in harmony with nature
They were already leaders in the sustainability industry before venturing into the industrial hemp market space. For many years that had been growing and producing natural biofuel. They became the first licensed grower of industrial hemp in their state and the first to offer a truly sustainable extracted full spectrum CBD that meets all of the strict standards and legislated requirements.
Beyond all of the legal requirements and the general ethos of sustainability and organic growing practices, they answer to an even higher standard. One that reaches back to centuries of living as one with nature and respecting the natural flow of life on the islands.
They follow ancient ancestral traditions in planting, growing, and harvesting with blessings and special ceremonies at each step along the way. Bridging the old ways to modern times and sowing their intent from the very beginning.
We, at Tres Spa, believe that the energy of our intent goes into every single item we make. That is one of the key differences when you are buying handcrafted verses mass manufactured. A piece of the person and their intention for you is in the end product you receive. Imagine the impact when you find that the same loving care went into each and every one of of the raw ingredients!
The producers of our extract have a strong family tie to the islands they live on and have built their business on. By purchasing ReSqu by Tres Spa products we are all supporting island economy that is sustainable and not tourism related. Giving living wages to a population that is underserved for good paying jobs.
Here is a glimpse into the process they adhere to when planting, growing, harvesting, and extracting the hemp extract…..

If you are wondering what CBD is, you are not alone. The use of cannabis sativa is nothing new in skincare. At Tres Spa we have been formulating with it for well over a decade. You'll find the seed oil in our hair care, face care, and personal care lines. For skin care, there is no denying the amazing botanical benefits of a routine rich in hemp.
Hemp oil is cold pressed from the seed, or more accurately the “nut meat” or “hemp hearts”. The seed oil is rich in vitamins and thick with a dark green color. It does have a distinct aroma but when blended correctly, it wont overpower the nose.
Hemp extract or CBD (cannabinoid) is fairly newcomer on the scene of popular skincare ingredients. It is an extraction that comes from the whole female plant (flower, seeds, stem, leaf). The whole plant is subjected to processes to create the Hemp extract. The end result, when done right, is a synergistic concentration of a fully balanced highly potent raw ingredient.
Full Spectrum means that you have every bit of the whole plant in the extract. No further processes or solvents need to be involved.
It's like taking that perfect golf swing. You want to follow through in one fluid movement to make contact with the ball for the desired effect.
Full Spectrum CBD means you have every single aspect, all of the plant essences concentrated and focused for maximum botanical benefit.
You may have seen Isolated or Broad Spectrum out there. Those are the result further processing and, often times, require the use of solvents to create.
We feel the Full Spectrum gives you the full benefit of the complete plant.
It doesn't take long to start to notice a good deal of numbers being tossed around when it comes to CBD products. Thee is a huge range of concentrations ranging from those that may have a drop to those that are highly potent in the 2000mg plus range.
CBD has levels of concentration. Take the producers who supply to me. They start with a super high potent extract that looks like a very thick honey. CBD for skincare must be below 0.3%THC. In order to meet the guidelines, the CBD is blended with other oils like Sunflower. This will make a less concentrated amount of CBD per package, but don't let that fool you, the over all botanical value of the products is not diminished. Organic Sunflower is in a lot of Tres Spa products, because of the high nutrition value of the plant oil.
So when we start to formulate, we begin with a concentration of 2000mg. We then blend this into our formulations which should bring our final topical to an estimation of 1000mg per product. There is no COA for our products at this time.
