About

Krista Cintron is a cosmetic chemist and began her first company, Harmony Apotheca in 2010, before it transformed into Etesian Plantaceuticals™.

Her knowledge of botanicals and herbal remedies grew when she lived in Italy working as an apprentice, then assistant at the famed Santa Maria in Novella Farmaceutica, in Florence, one of the world's oldest pharmacies and apothecary.

When she noticed that her brother-in-law experienced no relief from the $700 creams for his severe eczema,she began to research products. But none contained all the natural she sought. Not one product combined the ingredients from a ready made product that would work.

She began to research cosmeceuticals, and armed with her knowledge of apothecary botanicals, she started to formulate ingredients coined, "Plantaceuticals™", the marriage between plant medicine and pharmaceuticals. Plantaceuticals™ combined all of the elements into a single product. Plantaceuticals™ improves appearance by delivering elements necessary for healthy skin.

And Harmony's was born.

After the sudden death of her husband, Cintron took a break from the company and became a cosmetic chemist. Beauty industry experts, close friends for years, from the head of Estee Lauder to Indie companies like Diana B. helped transform the line, while Krista simply formulated.

Together, they brought the line back to its Mediterranean roots, renaming Harmony Apotheca to the more apt, Etesian Plantaceuticals™.

Cintron took the helm of Etesian and continues to research new ingredients, always on the lookout for the latest, cutting edge botanicals without the dangers of side effects.

She is a member of the Unique Manuka Honey Association, The American Botanical Council, The New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists, The International Society of Cosmetic Chemists, Rainforest Foundation, among others.


ABOUT ME, AND THE QUALITY OF MY INGREDIENTS:

• What i put into my products is just as important as what I leave out - easier said than done! I never want to add an ingredient that literally strips away the benefits of my products

• Through my screening process, I personally know my suppliers

• All my essential oil and extract blends, are 100% pure extracted from plants. They are NOT synthetic perfume, fragrance oils or diluted with artificial colors or fragrance. They are extracted from quality sources (not re-runs from plant material used for other things, which can be more woody or medicinal) - this makes a huge price difference, and its therapeutic impact.

I believe in the cycle of sustainment.

My ingredients are fair trade products in which a portion of the proceeds from your purchase go directly to the villages that farm and harvest the raw products from Africa to Belem, Brazil, which might otherwise be used for broomstick handles and luxury wood flooring.

Some of my unique and wonderful ingredients so extraordinarily beneficial for the skin come from areas that are endangered. I feel it’s important to donate to organizations that protect them.

Buying botanical ingredients that have worked for millennia in folk-lore medicine also slows down the economic drive for cutting down trees, allowing the eco-system to function naturally as it has for many years – so that they may continue to offer their natural gifts for generations.
