FAQ

What is the difference between a water massage bath and a spa, and when are Lait de Balnéo or Velours de Spa to be used?

It’s very easy: if the bath is drained after every use, it’s a water massage bath; if the water stays in the bath for a log time, and it is filtered like in a swimming pool, it’s a spa. Our products for balneo or spa are designed to be used according to the restriction applicable to any of the two kinds of bath; therefore, the product designed for a water massage bath cannot be used in a spa, and vice versa.

Is Lait de balneo the only product suitable for use in water massage baths?

Definitely. We are witnessing a positive trend in the market of water massage baths: over the last two years sales have boomed, and baths of this kind are replacing our traditional baths both in newly built houses, and in bathrooms undergoing refurbishment works. As far as cosmetics are concerned, consumers do not find the products they need on the market.
In fact, commonly used products are bath oils or bath salts, or even pure essential oils. Bath oils are fat-based oils, obtained by mixing essential oils with a neutral oil, such as sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, apricot stone oil, and so on. These are usually high quality products, but, when used in balneotherapy, they often leave a deposit that inevitably blocks the injection nozzles in the bath.
Bath salts are beautiful to watch and can be fun. Nevertheless, the crystals they are made of are not ideal either for the injection systems of baths. Another thing to bear in mind, is that bath salts do not always have real active principles.
There are still a lot of people who use pure essential oils in their water massage baths, something to be absolutely avoided. In fact, essential oils stay on the surface and they come into direct contact with the skin, which can cause a series of problems: skin reactions, allergies, rashes, etc...
LAIT DE BALNEO is obtained through a manufacturing method that we keep secret here at Camylle laboratories. Perfectly soluble in water, it allows plant molecules to have their positive effect on every part of your body that is soaked in a healthy bubble bath. With its high concentration of essential oils, it will turn your bath into a real well-being treatment at home.

Can Voile de Sauna only be used diluted?

Absolutely. Our sauna products contains alcohol, and, as a consequence, it is flammable.
It must absolutely be used diluted in tap water in a proportion of 10 to 20ml per 100 litres of water.
You will find out what is the dosage that best suits you by yourself, according to taste.
You should also be careful not to take a bottle of undiluted product with you in the sauna.

How should I take a sauna bath?

A sauna bath is a pleasant and relaxing moment. The first rule to follow, then, is to make sure you have enough time, at least one hour and a half, to feel both your body and your soul really purified.
First of all, take a good shower using a shower gel, setting the temperature of the water to your taste. An ordinary shower, after all. Rinse your body carefully, and then rinse it again, to make sure all traces of soap have gone.
Dry yourself and enter the sauna. The temperature in the sauna must be 80°C minimum. Stay five minutes in the sauna, surrounded by the dry heat, until you start sweating.
If the air is too dry, you might experience breathing problems, so make sure you pour onto the hot stones in the stove a dilutes solution of sauna product CAMYLLE’s VOILE DE SAUNA (in a proportion of 10 to 20ml per 100 litres of water). vHygrometry increases, and the beneficial molecules of essential oils have their effect. This first stage should last 15 to 20 minutes. It is recommended that you sit down one or two minutes before leaving the sauna.
Now, have a cold shower without using any soap, to avoid blocking again the pores of your skin. Have a rest, relax for 10 to15 minutes. vRepeat the whole stage a second time, even a third time if you feel like it. Always take a shower with no soap when you leave the sauna, and relax.
If you wish, you can increase the temperature of the sauna little by little, but we suggest you do not raise it to more than 100°C.
Something you should never forget to do is to adjust the humidity level in your sauna, by pouring from time to time some diluted solution of the product for sauna : voile de sauna onto the stove using a ladle, to prevent the air from becoming too dry, and to avoid turning your sauna bath into a steam bath.

Is it true that Brume de Hammam is a stable product?

A series of tests are carried out on our products before they are put on the market, both within our laboratory, and by some of our most prestigious clients who are retailers of our products.
In addition, Brume de Hammam’s high concentration of essential oils represents a great advantage on the market, as against the rival products. Its stability ensures that the essential oils it contains are diffused on a regular basis, and, most importantly, it helps avoid technical problems caused by the aggressiveness of some of the raw materials to be found in the diffusion system of a water massage bath. Examples of these problems can be a leakage due to a damaged seam, which can be caused by a too aggressive essential oil, the blockage of the whole system caused by a thick deposit, etc...
There’s nothing worst than a faulty water massage bath. It gives a bad image of the manufacturer, and the reliability of the materials he uses, as well as of the retailer who has to deal with a deceived customer. A water massage bath must be a moment of utmost pleasure!

Can I use Brume de Hammam even if I do not have any diffusion system in my water massage bath?

Some of our clients have natural hot water springs to supply their water massage baths, and therefore they do not have any mechanical diffusion system.
It is true that the steam creates an unpleasant smell of “damp” in water massage baths when no essential oil is diffused.
This is why the abovementioned clients use our product diluted in water in a proportion of 50% of the total volume, and they sprinkle the inside of the bath with this diluted solution using a common garden sprinkler with fairly fine holes.

My spa supplier said I shouldn’t use aromatic spa products...

Using any product without knowing its composition in a spa should actually be avoided, just like in a swimming pool.
Products interfering with the disinfectants used in spas should not be used. Products blocking the filtration system of the spa are to be avoided, too.
Our spa products "Velours de spa" has undergone many tests on most spa baths existing on the market before being merchandized.
Its essential oils dissolve perfectly in the water contained in the spa without altering the filtration system.
What can we say? A bubble bath with essential oils is definitely the best thing you can dream of!
