For over 5 years, our clients have told us they have found Marin’s best organic facials at Jessa Skin . We’ve been awarded with this honor in Pacific Sun’s Best of Marin 2012 award issues, San Francisco’s Bay List Winners 2011 and even by our hometown, City of Marin’s “Best of ” 2012 awards. We take these awards to heart because it tells us that we have very happy and satisfied clients which is our #1 goal in everything we do at our spa!
If you’ve never been to our day spa then you might be wondering exactly why our organic facials are so different from other spas. Here are three reasons why:
Natural & Organic Ingredients
Our founder, Jessica Roberts, worked with some of the world’s best chemists and formulators to develop the best natural and organic products that provide the greatest results for our clients while not harming the environment. In all of the services we provide at our spa, we only use the Jessa Skin product line. Our product line is free from harmful chemicals, toxins, parabens, harsh foaming agents, non-biodegradable formulas, harmful alcohols, fragrance, irritants, petroleum and other harmful ingredients. We continually educate ourselves through working closely with the SkinDeep database, which is associated with the Breast Cancer Society, to keep close tabs on new studies and seek formula advice for every single ingredient we use in our products.
Customized Facial Masks for YOUR Skin
When it comes to facials, we don’t believe that one size fits all. We have nine different facials options depending on your needs. We also custom blend all our facial masks each time you have a facial to ensure you are getting the best facial for your skin. We offer several powerful professional treatments, such as microdermabrasion and fruit acid peels, that can be added on to any one of our facials. Not only are these customized for you, but they are affordably priced. Many spas don’t offer these treatments as add-on’s, but rather make you receive a whole new facial to get the benefits of those treatments. Additionally, all of our clients enjoy the extensive head, neck, face and hand massage that is included in our facials.
All of our estheticians have many years of experience in skincare and are committed to organic healthy living. They are continually researching and educating themselves on skincare and happily share their knowledge with their clients. Our estheticians are available for consultations before your facial to discuss whatever skin concerns you may be having and offer expert recommendations for the course of action to improve your skin.

Need strong, professional, medical grade, organic and all-natural skincare solutions? Recently voted “Best Day Spa” in San Rafael, California, Jessa Skin has the answer with our new line of ProRX professional skincare products with high percentages of active ingredients.
When Jessa Skin rolled out our extensive line of new products earlier this Summer, we were thrilled to offer our ProRX line. A medically proven, professional line of products, our ProRX line offers cleansers, scrubs, toners, serums, peels, creams and lotions. Most natural and organic lines on the market are missing medical grade ingredients, however our ProRX line is very strong and contains high percentages of the most well-documented medically effective form of ingredients. Some examples of these ingredients include fruit acids and peptides.
You may notice a lot of products on the market, whether from all-natural lines or drugstore brands, mentioning that they contain Vitamin C or peptides (two ingredients well-known for helping with anti-aging). Before putting anything in your cart, take the time to read the label to see what percentage of that ingredient has been used. If they only have 1-2% of that active ingredient then save yourself the money and the frustration because at that low percentage, the product won’t work…or, it will take a long, long, long time to see results.
You want to look for products with at least 10% of fruit acid ingredients to get the results that you need. Most products in the Jessa Skin’s ProRX line have on average 15% or more of the active ingredients (such as our 17% Six Peptide Serum or 25% Vita-C L-Ascorbic Treatment) with others having even higher amounts such as our 50% Fruit Acid Professional Peel. Not only will you find these high percentages, but you can be assured that the actual ingredients have been sourced from clean, all-natural and organic resources.
If you are really struggling with skin concerns such as acne, anti-aging and pigment dark spots, it may be tempting to grab the highest grade product you can find in a rush to get fast results. While these products are highly effective, they come with a word of caution. Our ProRX products (clearly marked by the bolded ProRX label) are stronger, contain high percentages of active ingredients and require a prescription from an esthetician. We highly recommend that you follow your esthetician’s directions very carefully when using these products and keep them away from children.
As with any skincare product, it is a great idea to do your homework and understand exactly what is (or isn’t) in the product before you put it on your face. Also, what may work for your sister or best friend, may not work for you. It is important to have a consultation with a trained esthetician to see what combination of products are most beneficial for your overall skin tconcerns and type. The team at Jessa Skin has had extensive training and can recommend a treatment plan that is just right for you.
