I am a mother, wife, daughter, friend and woman, just like you. Looking back at my life, I now realise that I have always been captivated by the essence of beauty and that my passion and unrelenting determination to make a difference has been part of my being forever…
After school, I decided to focus my studies on Creative Design and found an undiscovered passion for fine art and the history behind it.
I started working at a well-known insurance company in South Africa in the Customer Care Division. My enthusiasm, and the fact that I always wanted to do and learn more, resulted in me being promoted, in a reasonably short time, to Manager and later General Manager. It was during this time that I met my first mentor, who taught me everything I know about the art of leadership and how to run a business.
But my passion for beauty and my dream to make a difference was undeniable… and so a new chapter started in my life. I met a second mentor of mine, Maria, on a warm February morning in 2008. My purpose: to find a new supplier that could provide quality gifts for our insurance clients. Upon my first meeting, she repeatedly mentioned that I looked like the famous Italian actress, Isabella Rossellini. By the way, that is where “Isabella” comes from. I soon became an ‘adopted child’ – talking, asking questions and enquiring about her life story, her beauty secrets and skincare range.
Step-by-step, I started performing small tests and found that the simplicity of the products offered new hope and amazingly soft skin to people around the world, including myself.
And so, during 2010, Isabella Garcia was born. Over the past years, Isabella Garcia has evolved into something more than just a beauty house – it has become a way of life and the rewards it entails are remarkably special and precious: self-confidence, self-worth and a feeling of contentment.
Thousands of ladies have fallen in love with their new best-kept beauty secret, and the many letters and e-mails that I receive daily attest to this and continue to humble me. It is my lifelong quest to be of service to you and to do whatever it takes to protect and nurture your body and soul. Beauty is not a state of perfection like the glossy magazines make us believe… beauty is a living process.

A Ballad of Beauty…
My dearest Friend,
Whether you are a musician or not, you intuitively understand how music works. You know how you feel when the tempo slows down or speeds up. You cannot explain it, but you know that certain notes or rhythms make you want to dance and others make you want to reflect on the mysteries of the world. The amazing thing about music is that it crosses all barriers and speaks a universal language that can affect people deep within their souls.
In many ways, music is just like our feelings around what we consider beautiful. Life happens to everyone – every man and woman knows what it is like. What I mean is that life slows down and it speeds up. It plays certain notes and it pauses at inopportune times. Life is full of highs and, if you are struggling through a season, you know that it can be full of lows. You need to know that you are normal and that you are joined in the valley with many people who are trying to make sense of the music.
At Isabella Garcia, we know beauty is to be encouraged with this truth: not every day is a stadium event. Sometimes life is hard or the opposite of what you want it to be. We know it is not easy and we want you to know that you are not alone. It is just the music of life and, if you can keep taking small steps forward, you will get through it. Our products are not only what music is to the soul, our products are made with love to capture the essence of women all over the world.
The essence of beauty is being beautiful every day in everything you do.
