Words from Carla

My parents, who owned a hotel in Nicaragua, instilled in me a deep appreciation for the entrepreneurial world. They emphasized that while it may not be a path for everyone, dedication and determination yield substantial rewards. My innate passion for beauty and fashion led me to seize an opportunity without hesitation, embarking on my entrepreneurial journey. I acquired a local beauty supply store, renaming it Essence Beauty, as a reflection of my identity and interests. After dedicating 13 years to corporate life, I took a leap of faith to focus on my true passion – helping customers feel their best with our products.

One of my primary objectives upon founding Essence Beauty was to offer products that not only enhance human well-being but also benefit the environment. Since our establishment in 2019, we've significantly expanded our range to include clean, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and gluten-free skincare and hair products.

A vital part of our success is my sister, Deya, whose unwavering support, creativity, commitment, and knowledge have been immeasurable. I extend my heartfelt gratitude for her contributions and thank you for being part of our journey towards a more beautiful and sustainable world.
