The story of how Eminence Canada Organics was born and how their natural skin care products became so popular in the world can be found in this video.
Eminence Organics: An Overview
In 1958, the Koronczay family outside of Budapest, Hungary started making natural, organic skin care products for their family and friends to use. A centuries-old tradition of pure, organic ingredients and herbal craftsmanship was handed down from local aestheticians to their families.
As the next generation grew up, organics played a much different role within the family. When Boldijarre Koronczay was four years old, he was diagnosed with leukemia and given only a 0.1% chance of survival. Furthermore, he was nurtured by organic and biodynamic food by his mother and grandmother, which helped him become stronger day by day, leading to an unexpected recovery from childhood cancer. After receiving the care that Boldijarre received, he became obsessed with organic ingredients for overall wellness for the rest of his life.
A part of everyday childhood for Boldijarre and his brother, Attila, was using handcrafted, organic skin care. The family of Boldijarre relied on herbal remedies when Boldijarre was suffering from teenage acne. In order to decrease inflammation and irritation, his grandmother used to make him cold compresses of St. John’s Wort. She also made comfrey cream at home to soothe minor ailments. As a descendant of the Boldijarre family, Boldijarre pursued his own years of study to become a Master Aesthetician and is now heading Eminence Canada organics together with his brother Attila.
Atic and Boldijarre
As a successful international company, Boldijarre and Attila have continued the family’s vision, keeping strongly rooted in Hungary and standing by its time-honored organic traditions. Embracing organic and biodynamic farming practices, Eminence Organics ensures plants are harvested at their peak of vitality in Hungary at the Eminence Certified Organic Farm. While celebrating their heritage, they are also expanding internationally. With offices in Vancouver, Canada and operations in more than 50 countries around the world, Eminence Organics continues to grow.
