BODY WRAP SUPPLIES RESOURCES
Below are some links and suggestions for supplies needed when performing body wraps.
Appointment/Scheduling Book: Sally Beauty Supply.
Bath and Hand Towels: Sam’s Club sells them in bulk and has them in white, which can be easily bleached.
Disposable Gloves and Shower Caps: Sally Beauty Supply
Disposable Bra and Panties: If you want to keep some around “just in case” you get a walk in or a client forgets theirs, you can find them at www.universalcompanies.com under “disposables.”
Dry Body Brush: This is not necessary for body wrap, but is a nice add on if you choose and also a good resale.
The dry brush I prefer is the “strap” version, BUT I suggest you may want to order one of each to see which you prefer to use on your clients and also on yourself.

You can also order the equipment mats from here to place under the equipment and for the client to stand on to be wrapped and/or basted to catch any dripping.
Floor covering: The pads you can place in the wrap room, under the exercise equipment and in the basting area. EQUIPMENT MAT
Hand/Foot Bags: Uline 800-295-5516 2 mil. 14 in. x 16 in. Uline.com
Hydrogen Peroxide: Sam’s Club
Ponchos: You can buy ponchos from Walmart or Target or really anywhere that sells camping gear. Having to clean and/or disinfect the ponchos in between clients can be a hassle for some people and they have switched to purchasing the ponchos from the following link. They can be washed and disinfected, but most body wrap business owners prefer to send their client home with this poncho. It will add about $.60 to the cost of the wrap, but might be something to think about in the long run. DISPOSABLE PONCHO
RAIN SUIT – (instead of Sauna Suit): I find these are easier to put on and take off client, since they will not have to raise their arms or pull on over their heads. I usually keep three of these on hand (1 M/L and 2 L/XL) for my clients that get extremely cold in the wrap. Using these takes a bit longer to re-mineralize or baste your client, but work very well.
Robes: WAFFLE ROBES
The reason we like these the best is that they wash and dry quickly, they are white (so they can be bleached if need be), they are long and will fit even your larger clients.
Sauna Suits: Camping department at Walmart or Target or any sporting department store. ORDER HERE and get shipped to store near you.
You might like and prefer these to the following slippers.
Another nice slipper (one that I prefer) that I have used in my spas/salons is a rubber base that you spray with disinfectant, dunk in water and then put over a rubber or plastic shoe rack to drip dry. You can find those at www.universalcompanies.com . They do offer the famous Sensi slippers and if your budget allows then by all means, but they are about $16 per pair. But they do offer a slipper called “Yeah Baby Cloud 9” (TOTALLY perfect!) and are sort of like the Sensi slipper but without the massaging nubs in the sole and they are only about $6 per pair! And when you need an assortment of sizes, these really are an excellent choice.
