our heritage cristina photo
at the core of our brand, we have a philosophy of hope for this world.

the first company cristina founded was biomedic, a medically-based skin care line

distributed to the world's leading plastic surgeons and dermatologists. from

biomedic, cristina expanded her inspirational vision to create philosophy. her goal

was to bridge the gap between what was offered in doctors' offices and retail, so

women everywhere could personally access leading skin care technologies.
