Our Story

I was always inspired by my parents and their entrepreneurial culture. They owned a hotel in Nicaragua and they taught me that the entrepreneur world is not for everyone, but if you put the work into it and have the drive, it will pay off. I always had a passion for beauty and fashion and when the opportunity arose, I didn’t think twice; I knew this was the business that reflected who I am and what I love. I started my entrepreneurial journey and purchased the only locally owned beauty supply in the Central Coast, and changed the name to Essence Beauty. After all, we all have our own special feature that makes us unique, and that is the Essence of a human. After working for a corporation for 13 years; I decided to take a leap of faith and dedicate myself to what I enjoy most: helping customers feel their best with our products.

One of my goals when I opened Essence, was to make sure we offer products that are not only good for humans, but are also good for the environment. Since opening in 2019, we have been able to increase our offering of clean products including our own cruelty-free, paraben free, gluten-free skincare and hair products line.

My sister Deya has played a big role in the success of Essence Beauty. I couldn’t have done it without her continuing support on the day to day of the business, her creativity, her commitment, her knowledge is unmeasurable -  Thank you for all that you do for our customers!
