Sparcana was formed in early 2011 and aims to become the leading, trusted provider to the beauty industry of quality, must-have beauty appliances and natural skincare products.
Sparcana has two brands: JANE SCRIVNER and SPAPLIANCE. Launched in 2004, the JANE SCRIVNER brand is an established training, treatment and skincare products company within the spa and beauty industry, carrying the brand tag “JANE SCRIVNER: Experienced Skincare for Experienced Skin“. SPAPLIANCE is the brainchild of Scrivner and her partner Kevin McWilliams. It was launched in February 2011 with its first appliance, the ORB, and carries the brand tag “SPAPLIANCE: Delivering Treatment Solutions... Beautifully!“
We supply appliances for the spa and beauty salon market as well as a complete range of skincare products. SPAPLIANCE was born out of necessity: the need to make treatments even more delicious, efficient and effective.
SPAPLIANCE was born to give you the edge over your competition, making your treat- ments more fabulous and giving you the time to concentrate on delivering the perfect cli- ent experience. SPAPLIANCE uses high-tech, high-performance and sophisticated design appliances. Whatever your current brand or product range, SPAPLIANCE will make them feel better and work harder leading to higher profitability and greater success.
Our first SPAPLIANCE appliance is the ORB. The ORB can be used with many available spa and salon brands, so there is no need to change your range, but simply upgrade it with warm ORB technology! The ORB is a portable, continuous heat chamber for warming skincare products. Facial oils, balms, skin serums, paraffin waxes and all naturally based skincare products feel amazing once warmed up. The ORB heats products accurately and safely, maintaining the temperature continually for up to one hour.
