I love Opal Avenue because there is a sense of old school customer service. Where I talk to one person and they answer my questions quick and personally. The level of quality across the product lines is superb as well!

Anne Dezort
Owner of SOAP Eco Boutique

I discovered Opal Avenue and it has truly been magical and life changing for myself and my spa. I’ve received guidance on ordering, brand knowledge, detailed step by step on how to browse the marketplace and brands, and assistance with samples to test and try before committing to buy. They are a one stop shop! I have already successfully added an amazing skin care line to my spa that perfectly compliments what I already have! Thank goodness for a platform that takes the guesswork out for me and leaves me feeling confident and successful as I grow and expand my products and services.
