The Beauty Base and Pherrus Financial Services join hands to help “Share the Dignity” in Australia
‘Menstrual poverty’ comes in many forms, primarily poor education on menstruation due to financial constraints and a lack of access to necessary sanitary products, waste management systems and hand washing facilities. It is a global problem affecting millions of women worldwide. One survey of 2000 women aged between 18 and 55 found that nearly half had suffered from a lack of access to female sanitary products, education or basic amenities. This means that for thousands of women living in poverty, periods are a great source of worry, shame and distress.
Share the Dignity is a national charity with the goal of ending period poverty in Australia. The charity frequently works with Australia’s most vulnerable populations, including the homeless and those fleeing from domestic violence to make a real difference in their lives. To date, they have donated over 2.4 million tampons and 3000 menstrual cups along with over 500,000 Christmas goodie bags filled with essential period and hygiene products for those in need.
Asides from the It’s In The Bag campaign Share the Dignity also hosts DigniTea and Move 4 Dignity, signature events aimed at collecting donations and educating the public.
This year, The Beauty Base at Narellan and Gregory Hills and Pherrus Financial Services located at Norwest Sydney have joined hands to support Share the Dignity’s mission of ending period poverty in Australia.
We will be donating 200 bags full of Hygiene products worth $10,000 for the charity’s latest donation drive. These bags will be collected by Share the Dignity and distributed to charities across Australia so they can reach the people that need them most.
Due to COVID-19, the charity’s latest Dignity Drive collections have been severely impacted, so this donation will go a long way towards helping them fulfil the thousands of requests for period products they receive from schools, hospitals and community organisations.
Share the Dignity is an outstanding charity helping thousands of women every year. We encourage you to get involved and help out in any way you can. If you’re looking to donate, the 2020 It’s In The Bag campaign will run from the 20th of November to the 29th of November with drop off points at Bunnings stores nationwide.
Alternatively, you can help out by donating your time. With over 5000 volunteers across Australia, volunteers are a significant part of the organisation. Share the Dignity volunteers help collect and distribute donations with leadership, administrative and operational roles also available.
The Beauty Base sweeps four categories in the 2020 Haute Grandeur Awards
We are tremendously proud to bring you the news of The Beauty Base Luxury Spa Narellan’s recent achievement – we picked up Excellence Awards in no less than four categories at the recent 2020 Haute Grandeur Awards!
The Haute Grandeur Awards are seen as one of the highest recognitions for spas around the world. The awards here are set up as an independent initiative which honours the biggest achievements across the industry, highlighting exceptional contributions. These awards place integrity right at the heart of their philosophy and are based on quality feedback from guests, rather than a pre-selected judge panel. It is this completely transparent rating method which sets apart the Haute Grandeur Awards as a system which the industry can really trust.
What was The Beauty Base recognised for?
The Beauty Base Luxury Spa & Clinic in Narellan won the Global Award for the Best Medical Spa out of thousands of salons across 172 countries, as well as Best Beauty Salon in Oceania, Best Beauty Spa in Oceania and Best Luxury Spa in Oceania. We are extremely excited and happy to be recognised for our work, especially as the awards are entirely based on the feedback from our guests. Our focus has always been on serving our guests with the best possible services and products, and these awards give us the all-important thumbs up and motivates us to keep doing our best in these challenging times.
We are over the moon with the win of Best Medical Spa on a Global level, especially as these awards take into account spas in no less than 172 countries. The three wins at Oceania level is also incredibly humbling – and now the target is clear; to take our guest satisfaction to a new level by aiming to take the global prize for the Best Beauty Salon, Best Beauty Spa and Best Luxury Spa categories.
Our knowledge, your relaxation
Despite being thrilled at the award wins, we promise not to rest on our laurels. We will continue to ensure that the knowledge and experience we have picked up serving guests for over two decades will keep raising the bar for luxury and relaxation – not just at the Beauty Base Luxury Spa & Clinic in Narellan, but at our other locations, including at The Beauty Base Gregory Hills and beyond. Quality Products, Amazing Services and Unrivalled customer satisfaction – this is what we have built our company on, and that isn’t going to change.
Thank you, to all our Valued Guests!
First and foremost we would like to say a massive thank you to all of our beautiful guests – it is you who have made this achievement possible. We would also like to give a big pat on the back to the brilliant team at Beauty Base. You have worked tirelessly to keep setting standards for excellence and putting us on the map worldwide.
Your Beauty. Your Place. The Beauty Base
On behalf of The Beauty Base, we hope that you have remained safe and well during this challenging time. We are beyond grateful for the support we have received, and we are so glad to be back in the salon!
We kindly request that you please support us in adhering to these guidelines and continue to maintain a safe social distance between yourself and others.
With current restrictions allowing for a limit of only one person (guests and staff) per 4 square metres, we kindly request that you please attend your booking alone, and refrain from bringing children along to your appointment as Government regulations will only allow for those that are booked in for an appointment to enter the treatment room.
We please ask, that on the day of your appointment if you are feeling unwell, regardless of the severity of your symptoms, that you please contact the salon and rebook your appointment.
We kindly request, that if you have had any direct contact with confirmed COVID-19 cases and/or hotspots that you please contact the salon prior to your booking time and reschedule your appointment if needed.
The waiting area will be in use only while we can maintain proper social distancing and any items that may be regularly touched, such as magazines and brochures will be removed. We do also ask that if you are interested in purchasing products, please wait for the assistance of a staff member who will be able to handle the items for you.
We will be displaying signage at the entryways and front desks of all our salons, which will inform our guests of all regulations and restrictions to be followed:
The Beauty Base staff will be adhering to the following COVID-19 Principles:
- Strict cleaning and sanitary requirements
- Conducting regular temperature checks on all staff and guest upon arrival
- Maintaining social distancing regulations.
- Enforcing regular hand washing/sanitation for both guests and staff
- Engaging in other High Standard Sanitisation Methods for Beauty Salons
- Our facilities have also been treated with a permanent anti-microbial coating that safely and continuously breaks down germs to help stop the transmission of infectious diseases.
Each staff member will also be assigned their own station/room to reduce the risk of cross interaction. All rooms and stations are being thoroughly sanitised in between bookings.
Staff will be present at all times with the sole responsibility of ensuring that staff and guests are adhering to all the guidelines stated, and that our salons do not exceed capacity.
We understand these are difficult times, and therefore we would like to thank you all for your continued support during the COVID-19 salon closures.
We appreciate your kind messages of support during this time and The Beauty Base team are so excited to see your beautiful faces again!
Stay safe and stay beautiful xxx
