Exclusive Resorts, a luxury vacation club with 400 residences and experiences in 75 destinations, is pleased to officially announce its partnership with earth-conscious, beauty-wellness guru Mary Allan, who travels the planet in search of botanicals that she uniquely ferments to unlock their hidden powers. Exclusive Resorts members enjoy a discount on all Mary Allan buzz-worthy, skin-care merchandise, a VIP gift with purchase, and a complimentary session with in-house estheticians.
“We are pleased that Mary Allan has joined Exclusive Resort’s highly curated portfolio of partners,” said Joey Whelan, senior vice president of marketing for Exclusive Resorts. “Mary’s products are a wonderful addition to our other esteemed partners, from private-jet-travel providers, vineyards, luxury cars and boats to memberships in A&K’s Marco Polo Club and Avis’ Chairman's Club.”
In 2021, Exclusive Resorts members drove more than $15 million in revenue to its partners.
Mary applies the ancient practice of fermentation to plants to naturally harness and boost their unique benefits. This process converts the healing ingredients from an inactive to a bio-active form that our skin can easily recognize. Fermentation is one of the oldest technologies used by cultures throughout the world.
For example, Mary ferments pomegranate to help the enzymes and phytochemicals of the fruit become more readily available without the need for heat treatments or harsh chemicals, which generally denature active components. Fermentation helps the soothing and calming properties of gold to become more bioavailable for skin delivery.
Among Mary’s power plants for fermentation are:
- Superfruit Acerola Cherries which contains a vitamin C content 65 times greater oranges
- A free-floating algae called Spirulina platensis found in tropical and subtropical waters with high concentrations of protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals
- Blue Agave plant that can store water to help to attract and retain moisture
- Papaya Fruit for its abundance of vitamins A, C, and E
- Yeast fractions, which have been known to increase cellular respiration and metabolism, for skin firming properties
Mary has spent the past 10 years building relationships with farmers, green chemists and suppliers that invest in solar energy, water-saving harvesting techniques and organic, wild-crafted and pesticide-free growth. Mary Allan uses over 350 ingredients that are sourced locally in California and through cooperatives and sustainable farms around the globe. Formulations are made in small batches to ensure maximum freshness. “We are proud of the ecological and cultural diversity of our ingredients, and we are inspired by the people who cultivate them, their lives and stories,” said Mary.
''I believe holistic beauty is conscious beauty, which one needs when traveling,” said Mary. “Dehydrated, jet-lagged skin can benefit from rosewater infused with the soothing properties of sustainably sourced white lilies coupled with a heavier cream than you would normally wear to lock in the water,'' added the skin health expert, whose thoughtful collection of premium skin-care products are now available on goop, which curates the best in clean beauty.
An expert on skincare, Mary's career spans over two decades working for some of the most iconic brands in the beauty industry. After launching her namesake collection in 2018, Mary quickly gained a following among discerning customers who embrace her approach and philosophy.
