Essence & Beauty Co is here to remind you to “Love Yourself” through simple self-care practices.
Founded in 2020, Essence and Beauty Co. is one of many small businesses born out of the Covid-19 pandemic.
With the pandemic putting her hospitality career on pause, Joana Ledesma found her mind buzzing with creative ideas to keep herself busy.
What inspired the name ‘Essence & Beauty’?
What’s your mission & vision?
Our mission and vision is to create and offer the world high quality self-care products that are good for our body and the environment.
What’s the process behind making and designing your products (candles, cosmetics, soap)?
The process behind making and designing my products includes a lot of research, putting ingredients together and months of testing – fragrances, burn test for candles, soap ingredients and cosmetics. We do our best to use reusable packaging and guide our customers on how to reuse and re-purpose our products on our socials. One example is our candle containers.
What’s some great feedback you’ve received from happy customers?
Customers comment on the great scents of our candles and soaps, they give positive feedback about our eco-friendly packaging, and they love the moisturizing texture of our lipsticks (like a lipstick and lip treatment all in one) and that our mascaras are gentle on eyes.
Future plans for Essence & Beauty Co?
In the future, I aim to have a wider range of high quality skin care products and to partner up with businesses and shops (both locally and internationally).
