Soft Skin is the Family Business at Park City’s Mountain Body

Local entrepreneurs build vibrant and unique business by putting family and nature first.

Park City, UT (January 21, 2010) – Every year since 1996, visitors to Park City and local residents alike have enjoyed the scents that waft out the door of the sweetest-smelling spot on Main Street: Mountain Body Spa & Herbal Cosmetic Deli. Tangerine, lavender, vanilla, mango, to name a few, attract passersby inside for an experience which all too often begins a long-time love affair with the luscious creams and fragrant glows within.

Mountain Body was truly inspired by nature. Mother-daughter co-owners Diane Fisher and Nylene O’Neal have lived as active outdoorswomen in the high mountain desert area surrounding Park City all their lives … experiencing the dry skin caused by the harsh, dry local mountain conditions. Like so many local women, they sought body products and spa treatments to make skin soft even in the high mountains. These active ladies live in the outdoors—skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, running and riding horses.

In 1996, they opened Mountain Body Spa & Herbal Cosmetic Deli on Historic Main Street in Park City, offering bath products and massage and spa treatments. Soon after opening, they were struck by how many people shared their own ardent interest in high-quality, all-natural body products, and also by the lack of products on the market to meet this demand. So in 1997, they combined their expertise in the body products category with their imaginative product and marketing ideas, and began manufacturing their own products under the Mountain Body Products, Inc. brand name for sale in their own spa, and for wholesale sale to spas and salons across the country, including Ritz Carlton, Kivas, Mandalay Bay, Red Mountain, Westglow Spas and more.

Mountain Body is living proof that strong, loving families make positive things happen. Diane and Nylene have worked passionately to infuse Mountain Body with their positive energy and spirit. Their happiness and love fuels their success. To the envy of mothers everywhere, Nylene lives across the street from Diane, and they start the day with coffee together almost every morning. Brigitte Larsen and Dylan Fisher, Diane’s daughter-in-law and granddaughter, are found most days at the Main Street spa, happily greeting guests and introducing them to wonders of Mountain Body through a free hand treatment offered to all shoppers. Nylene’s pregnancy and daughter Thea were the inspiration for Mountain Body’s pregnancy and baby care products; the R&D team kicked into overdrive for a family member in need, and mothers and babies ever since have enjoyed the results.

Mountain Body has a huge and devoted following, and has been very favorably reviewed in the national press, especially the company’s signature product Mountain Glow®, an ancient sea bed mineral salt and fresh-pressed fruit rind body rub made with precious Dead Sea mineral salts and salt from the Great Salt Lake. In a 2002 roundup of “America’s 50 National Treasures,” InStyle Magazine selected Mountain Glow as Utah’s contribution to the list.

People with allergies and skin sensitivities are particularly enamored of Mountain Body. The company regularly hears from people who are thankful to have finally found a high-quality, all-natural lotion that they can use without any skin reaction.
