ABINGDON, Va.…Universal Companies, the ultimate spa and wellness resource, is introducing Safety and Sanitation Essentials, the first complete line of products and services specially curated for spas and salons, according to Universal Companies’ Chief Executive Officer, Karen Short.

The Universal Companies lineup includes a full range of products and services designed for sanitation and disinfection, including eco-friendly sanitation options, protection for clients and staff, barrier and sanitation stations, and access to their free resources and education.

Universal’s 13-year veteran Director of Product Development, Anna Bralley, who is also a licensed esthetician and a nail technician, heads the launch and explains, “This is really ‘one stop shopping’ for keeping staff and clients healthy. Salons and spas have been working overtime on their own to make a safe environment for everyone. We’re making it quick and easy to reach that important goal.”

Bralley continues, “We’re taking standard sanitation options to a more advanced level with innovative solutions like a sanitation portal and an electrostatic mister.  For example, the mister empowers a single employee to rapidly disinfect large spaces for less than one cent per square foot. Additionally, we provide customers with free education and tools to communicate the sanitation precautions they’ve taken, giving their clients peace of mind.”

Short adds, “Our team has been working for months to develop this comprehensive line of products and services to serve our spa and salon customers during these unusual times. This will enable them to provide the safest possible environment for their clients and employees and is just an extension of the path and trajectory our brand has been on for the past 18 months. It’s all about providing our customers with the resources to maintain and grow their businesses”.
