Sharon Gnatt Epel

Meet the Founder

Sharon Gnatt Epel is passionate about helping women recognize and achieve their full potential. Her commitment to the advancement and empowerment of women is the inspiration behind La Ishá, the 1st eco-friendly, high-performance natural skin care company dedicated to developing safe age-defying essential-oil based skincare and wellness solutions for women. 

A published expert on beauty over 40, Sharon believes that no woman should have to endanger her health to look and feel beautiful. She is the creator of The Myth of Cosmetic Safety - a program she developed after losing her best friend to a 6 year battle with breast cancer in 2010. The purpose of the program is to educate women, health organizations and breast cancer support groups about the toxic ingredients lurking in many of the personal grooming and beauty products we use everyday. An addendum to this program addresses how to nurture skin that has undergone chemo and radiation therapy through the use of natural ingredients and proper nutrition. Both programs are available to hospitals, cancer support groups, health organizations, local radio, TV and podcasts.  

A former concert pianist and graduate of The Juilliard School, Sharon's graduate studies include courses in aromatic medicine, essential oil therapy, anatomy and human physiology, exercise science, biomechanics, nutrition, and computer science at various educational institutions including Georgia State University, The American College of Nutrition, and MIT.  

"It is a privilege and an honor to recommend Sharon...Her La Ishá product line is first rate for quality and consistent results. As CEO of her business you won't find a more knowledgeable person who is up on all the latest details. It is a pleasure to provide this recommendation."

~ Dr Raphael D'Angelo, M.D., Director, Center for Holistic and Integrative Medicine and the ParaWellness Research Program
