A new store selling a line of face, body and hair care products, Amour New York, has opened at 6 Phila St. in Saratoga Springs.
All the products are said to be certified original products from the Dead Sea in Israel, according to the company. Amour New York is the Shemen Amour brand of Dead Sea products sold in the United States.
“Everything comes direct from the Dead Sea, including pure magnesium bath salts and nutrient-rich black mud,” said store owner Christine Marks. “These remarkable holistic products, known for their natural healing properties, are SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate) and paraben-free and certified cruelty-free (no animals are used for testing). The store is unique in that we want customers to try a number of the products prior to purchase.”
Marks has a background in importing and exporting and said she is thrilled with the new location near the newly renovated Adelphi Hotel, at the intersection of Phila and Broadway in downtown Saratoga Springs.
“We hope to be one more reason that shopping in downtown Saratoga is vibrant and unique,” she said. “Customers say they notice a huge difference after using our unique products, and we are so confident that we let people try it before they buy it.
“There is a great deal of scientific study behind the natural minerals found in the Dead Sea and the positive effect they have on the body.”
She said the store hopes to expand its product line and will eventually be hiring people as “product ambassadors.”
The shop can be reached at 518-290-7721.
