A family company, based in Italy, their skincare range and story began in 1952, when Giuseppina Balestra introduced her proprietary blend of botanical oils and skincare preparations, featuring the luxurious Black Winter Truffle, based on traditional Italian recipes.
During Hollywood’s glamorous “Dolce Vita” years, acclaimed film stars and locals alike would flock to her store “La Galleria” in Rome, to experience Giuseppina’s high-end formulations, luxurious textures, enticing fragrances and the miraculous results of using her products.
Sixty years later, Giuseppina’s beloved concoctions were revived and brought into the modern era. With a vision and a passion for skincare, Gabriel Balestra, grandson of Giuseppina, and a team of researchers discovered the powerful properties of the Black Winter Truffle Extract harvested the family farms.
Today, this breakthrough technology is used in conjunction with cutting edge science, to create a unique anti-aging formula unlike anything else in the beauty industry.
