An economist and entrepreneur from Barcelona, founder Elena Alarcón has always been concerned with the environment and what we eat and use on our skin. As well as being an animal and human rights activist, Elena has always had an entrepreneurial spirit since she was a young girl. She decided to leave her career working in finance to travel through Central America, where she learned how Bribri women used natural ointments for skincare with incredible results. Completely inspired, Elena decided to start her own brand, following Bribri principles and combining a wide variety of natural ingredients with cutting edge research.
