Carter Hales Design Lab launches signature line of luxury bath and body products

Vancouver, Canada, Nov. 13, 2012  – Pink Door Design Lab is pleased to introduce the Black Label bath and body line, which combines centuries old craftsmanship and the best of ancient therapies with exquisite packaging that is personally signed and numbered per small batch. With the exception of the sea salts imported from the Dead Sea and glass bottles imported from Switzerland to protect the sea salts and oils from UV rays, everything by Pink Door is locally produced.

“Our spa and stationery products have been carefully designed to reflect our no-compromise commitment to quality,” said Sean Carter, co-owner of The Pink Door Design Lab. “Pink Door represents an opportunity for us to design and launch our own brand to the Canadian market. Without being too over the top, we describe our Black Label products as ‘Quite possibly the world’s most beautiful luxuries’.” PinkDoor_FPO_01_SoapGroup-smaller

The Black Label spa collection features small batch handmade soaps, massage candles, bath & massage oils and Dead Sea bath salts available in eight tantalizing scent profiles. Each product contains a carefully selected combination of the finest ingredients ranging from shea butter, olive oil and soya wax to essential oils and coconut milk.

The Pink Label stationery includes a distinctive assortment of high-end notecards and notebooks that boast unique foil pattern designs printed using VOC free inks on paper stock that is acid free, archival and made from 30% post-consumer waste. Everything is printed in Vancouver by a family-owned, FSC certified printer.

The luxury spa and stationery gift items have been specifically formulated to reflect Carter Hales’ design philosophy, which has received worldwide acclaim through numerous awards for its creativity and for providing customers with a boutique experience that reflects the group’s design studio origins.

“Ours is a Canadian brand, through and through, without mountains, moose, mounties or maple syrup,” said Ross Hales, co-owner of The Pink Door Design Lab. “We deliberately set out to produce a high-end spa and stationery line that is grounded in contemporary design and we have consciously avoided the compulsion to take our manufacturing off-shore. We hope that customers view our luxuries with the joy we had in designing them.”
