Keep Immaculate was founded by Lydia Montoute, an award-winning entrepreneur who has been working in the beauty industry for a number of years.
Her first foray into beauty was the invention of the Kim Mask™, a device that prevents face makeup from being disturbed when changing clothes, protecting garments from makeup contamination in return. The product limits restriction and creates more freedom around trying on clothes and became a valuable customer service aid with high-end clothes retailers, protecting stock from damage caused by customers’ makeup in their changing rooms.
‘Beauty from self-awareness’ is Lydia’s belief behind each product. Taking inspiration from her Caribbean roots, Lydia investigated homeopathic treatments that had been passed down through family generations, remembering instances in her childhood when her father made soothing balms and oils from seasonal and local botanical ingredients. These worked in tune with the body to combat aches, pains and skin ailments. Lydia also saw her father work with his clients’ respective needs and an understanding of the seasons to target their wellbeing. This has evolved into the Thermal Therapy treatment Sentiment Check™.
Lydia realised the oil combinations became even more potent with the use of controlled heat, enhancing the beauty and wellbeing effects. This was a true innovation for the beauty industry.
Many years ago when Lydia was a student, a friend of hers travelled to Japan and brought back a heat pad as a gift. Lydia was fascinated by the way in which heat naturally occurred in the product and always kept that concept in mind. Many years later she realised how invaluable this concept was when she incorporated it with her oils and washes to enhance their beauty benefits.
And so, Thermal Therapy™ was born, innovating Impact Heat Release Technology™ with the principle of heat-based treatments ‘for body tone and youthful skin™’. Lydia combined nature and nurture with contemporary massage techniques and uniquely-blended All-over Essential oils, developing powerful signature treatments. Facials, body massages and foot and arm treatments that work perfectly to nurture self-awareness senses in tune with the seasons.
The Thermal Therapy™ experience started as a professional treatment in a high-end Mayfair salon in 2010 using our uniquely-blended essential oils for skincare and well-being treatments, introducing the ‘seasonal skincare’ routine to hundreds of customers.
What followed was years of research and development and our passion to create quality beauty products and well-being treatments. Our concept is based around self-awareness, the alchemy of aromatherapy, essential oil properties and the seasons. We want to transform lives, promoting our Keep Immaculate philosophy of product innovation, looking and feeling good and convenient luxury.
Through this philosophy we aim to create a great life of well-being so that, in-turn, we can all be kind and compassionate to ourselves and one another, making the world a better place with ‘beauty from self awareness™’.
In 2013 Keep Immaculate opened the Keep Immaculate Training Centre from premises in Kingston and an award-winning facilities in Richmond. The training is entrepreneurial start-up business focused for body massage qualified therapists and business owners who want to use our philosophies and beauty concepts to run their very own Thermal Therapy franchise businesses.
