Shel Pink,
founder of SpaRitual
Terms like “vegan,” “fair trade” and “organic”
have become a part of our daily vocabularies,
and our lifestyles. But a mere decade ago, this
wasn’t the case: although the so-called “Green
Movement” had begun to pique the interest of
the general public, it had yet to take off.
It’s not surprising then, that in 2004, when
Shel Pink began shopping around SpaRitual in
her unique line of earth-friendly nail lacquers
and spa products, the response from the
beauty industry was lackluster. Beauty pros,
particularly nail technicians, weren’t keen
on the idea of trading in their tried-and-true
nail polishes and products for more natural
alternatives, says Pink, who created SpaRitual
products to be free of harmful toluene,
formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate (DBP).
“I met with a lot of resistance in the
beginning,” recalls Pink. “Although nail techs
could see the current brands they were working
with might not be the healthiest, they didn’t
seem to care.”
Pink refused to fold, and surged forward
with the conviction that her earth- and wellnesscentric products would soon catch on. She was
proved right. Over the past 10 years the Green
Movement has become a force to be reckoned
with, and the same can be said about SpaRitual.
The company has expanded from its nailcare roots
to include body care, candles and lip glosses.
Although SpaRitual’s message of wellness
hasn’t changed since the beginning, it has
evolved. “Some years ago, I saw the Green
Movement start to take on a different shape,”
explains Pink. “There was a new focus on
slowing down, sustainability of self and a need
to seek more depth.” This emerging concept
gave birth to Pink’s latest initiative: Slow
Beauty. The idea rejects modern materialism
and embraces a return to simple wellness that
promotes a state of beauty that resonates from
within. In addition to creating products aligning
with this “slow” philosophy, Pink has also
launched a blog dedicated to the movement,
which users can access through SpaRitual’s site,, or at
With 10 years under Pink’s belt and some
hard-earned street cred to boot, one thing’s
for certain: her journey is far from over, and
this trailblazer is ready to explore some more
uncharted territory. ÑAngela Melero




APRIL 2014

Pink in a moment
of reflection while
in Bangkok


ow did you come to work
in the beauty industry?

To be honest, it really wasn’t
on my radar until I got
married. Before then, I worked
as a photographer in the
entertainment and fashion fields.
My father-in-law (founder and
CEO of ORLY International, Jeff
Pink) approached me and asked if
I wanted to learn the business. I
joined ORLY as the brand manager
for the spa line. As I learned
more about the beauty world, I
fell in love with it. After studying
the industry for years, learning
about our competition and seeing
where everyone fits, I saw a hole
that needed to be filled. There
wasn’t a premium brand based on
environmental awareness. That’s
when I came up with the idea of
filling that void with SpaRitual.


our father-in-law is an
industry pioneer. How has
he influenced you in your own
business ventures?

Jeff really taught me the ropes of
the beauty world. I’ve been able
to learn all the facets of running
a business. He’s a tough guy and
I think I toughened up working
with him for 12 years, which
isn’t a bad thing! He’s one of the
founding fathers of the industry,
and to be part of the next
generation of that legacy is
really exciting.


paRitual’s Spring 2014
collection is entitled Explore.
Each collection aligns with our
overarching theme for that year.

For example, 2014’s theme is
The Journey, with the idea that
everyone must embark on a
journey to come back home. Each
seasonal collection is created as
part of a cohesive story to which
clients and consumers can relate.
We have an amazing team, and
we are all involved in the creative
process every step of the way. I
also oversee everything, and ensure
our collections make sense and hit
the latest trends and themes.


ou are a wife and mother
of two. How do you juggle
your business and family life?

It’s not always easy! Over time,
I’ve learned that things don’t
always have to be perfect. It’s
about staying engaged with your
work and life and always seeking
balance. It’s important to take care
of your mental and physical self,
so I meditate twice a day for 20
minutes, get regular massages,
exercise and eat well. Also, I don’t
go into the office on Fridays—I
need that day to be by myself and
with my kids.


hat do you do in your
spare time?

I’m always reading. Right now
I’m reading The Secret Garden by
Frances Hodgson Burnett, which I
first discovered as a little girl, and
One Hundred Years of Solitude
by Gabriel García Márquez. I also
enjoy music—my husband’s a
musician! I love Stevie Wonder. I
listen to him all the time. There are
certain voices you never grow tired
of listening to, and Stevie’s is one
of them!
