About us


Shared Beauty Secrets are the exclusive trainers and distributors of Lavashells in the uk and Ireland. Shared Beauty Secrets was launched in 2009 by founder Clare Anderson after she discovered the shells whilst on the islands of Turks and Caicos in 2008. As soon as she felt the heat of the shells Clare knew she had discovered something exciting. Having worked in the beauty and spa sector for many years, Clare was very aware of how successful hot stone treatments were and instantly recognised that Lavashells could rival traditional stones. A range of treatments for the face and body can be found available  in thousands of salons and spas across the UK and Ireland.


Lavashells® are the world’s first self-heating massage tool. A patented, natural, biodegradable heat technology is incorporated into the Lava Shell which then emits heat for up to an hour allowing your therapist to provide a continuous and seamless warm body massage. The unique shape and angles of the shell become an extension of the therapist’s hands, giving a deeply therapeutic relief exactly where needed.


Genuine Tiger Clam Lavashells are hand selected in the Philippine Islands for their unique size, shape and structural integrity. They are carefully matched by size, sanded and polished to reveal their unique lustre, bonded together and sealed to form the beautiful massage tool. As the natural Tiger Clam Lavashells come in different shapes, thickness and sizes they can vary in temperature during massage. No animals are ever harmed for the purpose of making Lava Shell massage tools. The Tiger Clam and Cowrie Shells are simply collected in the Philippines after having washed ashore naturally or as refuse from the islanders natural diet. The leftover shells are repurposed into world class ergonomic, non-porous, thermal wellness massage tools.


The porcelain Tiger Clam Lava Shells are made from the highest quality ceramic. Each shell is hand painted to replicate the natural shell. The porcelain Tiger Clam Lava Shells are exactly the same shape and size, making them easy to hold and the heat easier to manage.


The Cowrie Lava Shells massage tool will add a Touch of Lava warmth or a cooling Glacial Chill to upgrade any existing massage treatment to something extraordinary. Its unique contours and ergonomic shape makes it versatile and it is highly recommended for back, neck and shoulder massage, manicures, pedicures and facials.
