Why Use La Ishá High Performance Natural Skin Care?
Woman to Woman
by La Ishá's founder, Sharon Gnatt Epel
Two months before my 52nd birthday, my life went to hell in a hatbox. My dad was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer, the “wusband” of 20 years filed for divorce, my best friend lost a 6-year battle with breast cancer, and one of my children had a serious accident at summer camp that threatened to leave him scarred for life (read The La Ishá Story). I was under a huge amount of stress and my skin showed it. Years of cumulative sun-damage suddenly began showing up on my face. I was breaking out for the first time in years. I felt old and unattractive. It didn’t help that I was living in a high-altitude climate where the humidity level was often in single digits.
So, I set out to find something to help heal my sad, aging skin. I first tried the department store brands with their stunning celebrity spokesmodels, bold sexy packaging and equally outrageous pricing; then the low-key drugstore brands with a lower price point and down-to-earth packaging, but the results were always the same: after a couple of weeks, there was no visible difference in the condition or appearance of my skin.
I started to read and ultimately research product labels. I was surprised to discover that most mainstream brands are produced by the same handful of contract manufacturers and laboratories. Although their products may look different on the outside, they are all pretty much the same on the inside and made from identical ingredients that are predominantly synthetic in nature and linked to breast cancer. I was outraged to learn that none of the major cosmetic brands follow a policy of full ingredient disclosure. This is risky business because many women tend to develop allergies and sensitivities as we get older.
That’s when I decided to create La Ishá.
Created exclusively by women, for women, La Ishá’s plant-based ingredients come from nature and have adaptogenic properties that can keep up with your evolving body chemistry. You don't need to worry that your skin will become "accustomed" or "immune" to our products over time. With La Ishá, results are cumulative. The longer you use us, the better you look.
If you are like me, and have been searching for a product line that is effective, uncomplicated to use, made from safe natural ingredients that won't come back to bite you, is reasonably priced, and creates results that you can start to see and feel within 7-10 days, you’ve come to the right place. Give La Ishá a try. I think you’ll like what you see.
Quality and Innovation
I am especially proud that La Ishá is the very first company to offer a revolutionary topical breast health support formula. Breast SOS is an award winning, synthetic free topical serum designed to reduce cleavage wrinkles, the signs of sun damage, discoloration, hyperpigmentation, improve skin tone, and support good breast health. It is especially helpful after breast surgery because it contains anti-inflammatory ingredients that can help expedite healing, reduce swelling and minimize the appearance of scars (see our Before & After Pictures).
Social responsibility is the cornerstone of La Ishá's corporate policy. Because we are committed to a sustainable future for our children and grandchildren, we use recycled shipping materials, no-frills packaging and containers made exclusively of glass and recyclable non-leaching plastic. We contribute a portion of our proceeds to organizations that embrace, strengthen and promote women’s causes and donate product to breast cancer patients. We are a member of the Alliance of International Aromatherapists (AIA), the American Botanical Council, a proud supporter of Breast Cancer Support Partners (formerly The Breast Cancer Fund) and a signatory of the World Cancer Declaration sponsored by the UICC for global cancer control. We have taken the Truth in Labeling Pledge, voluntarily follow the safety guidelines suggested by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, are a member of Made in Nevada, and are honored to be listed in the Colorado Cancer Product Resource Directory.
