Meet the Natural Skin Care Expert
A very personal and profound experience inspired Sharon Gnatt Epel to create La IshÃ¡, an all-natural skin care line targeting the specific needs of women 35+. In 2005, Sharon’s teenage son Aaron suffered severe chemical burns on his hands after wading in a tainted river in Costa Rica during a summer program. Faced with the possibility of severe scarring and restrictive movement, Sharon and her son decided to follow a treatment plan of essential oil application. The results were nothing short of miraculous, saving her son’s hands and inspiring the creation of La IshÃ¡, Inc. in 2007.
