Gabriel DeSantino Biography
Drawing from his grandmother’s homeopathic practices and teachings, Gabriel DeSantino, CEO and Founder of Gabriel Cosmetics, Inc. always believed that the sea embodies special healing and revitalizing properties. As a young child, Gabriel frequented his grandmother’s home near the coast of Mexico where he learned the significance of seaweed and kelp. As his curiosity heightened and his passion for healthy living and natural beauty developed, he knew it was his calling to bring these special properties to the forefront and become an advocate for all natural and organic beauty products. By carrying his grandmother’s wisdom for healthy alternatives as he began his beauty empire in 1992, Gabriel developed a vegan and gluten free skincare line, full of sea-derived ingredients called Gabriel Skincare. By using 100% natural ingredients including plant oils, extracts, and botanicals, his high-quality skincare products are non-allergenic and fragrance-free, consisting of a complete collection suited for every woman’s skincare needs.
As Gabriel continued to make his mark on the organic beauty industry, he wanted to expand his brand to offer a wider variety of products to healthy beauty addicts. In 1995, he launched a cosmetics line, Gabriel Color and in 2001 Zuzu Luxe by Gabriel Cosmetics, which is also an all natural, vegan, and gluten free makeup collection. Gabriel later introduced Clean Kids Naturally to round out his all natural beauty collection, offering products to every age. Additionally, Gabriel Skincare evolved into what is now Gabriel Organics after receiving USDA/Organic certification in 2011.
Through consistent research, product development and direct consumer interaction, Gabriel keeps his finger on the pulse of new healthy beauty developments and continues to be one of the leaders in beauty and wellness. Gabriel Cosmetics, Inc. is a pioneer in the all natural beauty industry and is based in Seattle, Washington.
