Grown crystals exfoliate the skin, slippery matter massages the feet and drifting mist cleanses the face – these are just some of the possibilities portrayed in Nina van Bart’s vision for the wellness industry. In her trend forecast, we become alchemists, mixing minerals, powders and liquids into our own body care products in a quest for the ultimate treasure of wellbeing. The bathroom is a laboratory where substances react with each other to give new super-sensory experiences. “After leading hectic lives in the fast lane, now the economic crisis is making us reassess what is important. We will choose to take better care of ourselves,” says Nina.
