The mission of GINAMARIE is to educate individuals on caring for their skin through our effective simple, holistic skincare and clean cosmetic line. Inspiring true beauty and enhancing that which lies within each of us, is at the heart of our company.
Our StoryOur skincare line was developed by Filomena Arends in 1978 who has over 60 years of experience in the beauty industry. When formulating our product line she made the decision to name the company after me, Gina Marie, her only daughter. My mother’s passion was to educate others about the health of their skin from a holistic perspective. She formulated our skincare line to be compatible with the skin as an organ. Our products are pH balanced, water-based, gentle, antioxidant rich, and made with naturally-derived ingredients without animal testing. Since taking over the business I have continued to follow in her footsteps with her guidance.
It is my mission to teach others to see their true beauty with our effective, simple, holistic skincare and clean cosmetic line. With so many products on the market, GINAMARIE has found its niche by specializing in the professional and consumer education of skin and having a personal relationship with our clients. We are able to do this through our website, skin therapy center, customer service, and our selective wholesale associates. My mother developed GINAMARIE Products over 40 years ago with the intention of making a difference in the lives of others. She accomplished this through personalized skincare products and professional treatments aimed at improving the health of our clients and their skin. It is with great pride that I can say our commitment to providing our clients with the finest skincare and clean cosmetics continues in the GINAMARIE Product tradition.
