NEW YORK — V’Tae is switching gears. The maker of essential oil- and plant-extract-derived bath-and-body products is paying closer attention to its fastest-growing distribution channel: spas.
Belinda Rush-Carville, founder and creator of V’Tae products, said she’s seen business from spas grow from 5 to 7 percent to 12 to 15 percent over the past year. Her V’Tae beauty business, which retails to boutiques, health food stores and the specialty supermarket operator Whole Foods Markets, ended 2002 with $4 million in retail sales.
