Marianna was born and raised on the island of Crete in Greece where, at a young age, she began learning the natural skin care and healing modalities of her homeland from the women in her family and her community. In her early twenties, she left for London to start her journey to becoming a master esthetician. In London, Marianna honed her skills in the famous Mayfair district, where she catered to the city's most discerning clientele. She continued her education and development in France throughout the time she was living in London, giving her a more expansive knowledge and expertise in the methods being practiced across Europe during that time.
Marianna eventually moved her family from London to the growing and bustling city of Toronto, where her passion and skills learned in her earlier years, took on a new energy, opening her own spa and introducing the non-surgical lifting technology to Canada. Her successful practice in Toronto gave Marianna the opportunity to tackle new challenges, such as how to train her aestheticians to uphold her high standards using new technologies, and treating clients in varied climates. Toronto is also where Marianna began teaching aestheticians in advanced aesthetics, which she has continued to do so across North America for many years.
Life changes for us all, and Marianna found herself in a new locale - Houston, Texas, where she introduced the concept of Day Spa to the United States. Her unrivaled 11,000 square foot spa landed on the cover of American Salon magazine, and was honored as American Salon of the Year. After a successful period in Houston, Marianna made her way to the beautiful shores of Laguna Niguel in southern California where she practiced her art until moving to Boulder, Colorado in 1993 to be with her children. In 1995 Marianna opened her doors for business in Boulder, where she carried on her art of providing high-level advanced skin care to the local community.
It was at this juncture in her career where and when, Marianna decided to tackle the one issue that she had not yet - to deliver to her clientele, advanced professional-grade skin care products for home care usage at affordable prices. Marianna's vast knowledge of skin care product ingredients developed over her lifetime poured into our new skin care line. The products were an instant hit with clientele, whose praises and commentary typically referenced never having had the like in their past. In little time, we found ourselves sending products across the nation to passers-through whom, once exposed to our products, were simply no longer going to settle for anything less. To this very day, Marianna never stops learning, always staying abreast of the latest in skin care science and technology, and continues to reformulate and improve our product line, so that our clients have the best of the best for their daily skin care regimen.
