Clare Anderson - Founder 

Clare started her career as a beauty therapist for the likes of Champneys and Clarins, before working her way up to a national position in sales for Decleor & Carita. Working for high-end spas and prestigious professional brands gave Clare the opportunity to gain experience in every aspect of the industry—and prepared her perfectly for when the opportunity came to go back to Champneys as a manager in charge of developing and launching the brand’s new skincare range. This was when Clare finally discovered her passion for creating and developing products. 

Self-heating technology is something that Clare has championed throughout her professional career. She successfully launched Lava Shells in 2008 and to date has trained over 10,000 therapists using this innovative heated massage tool. Clare has also worked with some of the world's most luxurious spas, including those on Necker Island and in the Soho House Group, as well as celebrities and top editors. 

Clare started Sensory Retreats in 2020 as an affordable but luxurious wellbeing brand incorporating a range of deeply relaxing and pampering trade and home spa products to relax, rebalance and reset all five senses. 

It was a natural evolution for Clare to create a range of self-heating eye and face masks to enhance the in-spa client and home customer experience. Whether you want to enjoy some shut-eye, ease tension and headaches, revive tired and over-worked eyes and minds or simply escape in the moment, Sensory Retreats has the perfect self-heating mask for all ages, lifestyles and occasions, allowing therapists and individuals alike to curate their own essential wellbeing experience, something Clare has always felt passionate about. 

Clare has worked with some of the UK's biggest events including The NTA Awards, Captial FM's Jingle Bell Ball, Pink Ribbon Foundation events and is proud to support charities such as Pink Ribbon Foundation, Mind, Make A Wish and More Trees. 

Clare is an entrepreneur with a passion for creating well-being products and is already working on some exciting new launches for 2022. Watch this space!
