Ela Drzazga and Iwona Kozak

The Story of Two Women and Their Passion

Ela Drzazga grew up in Poland during the communism era with no sense of personal freedom or fulfillment. She was in her twenties when communism collapsed and for the first time in her life she believed that she could create her own destiny. She acted on it immediately and enrolled into a Western MBA program – the first woman in Poland to do so.

 

After successfully completing the program, she decided to start a distribution company of high-end skincare products from Italy and Spain. Like any other woman, Ela loved cosmetics, their beautiful packaging, scents, textures and the promise of eternal youth. They encapsulated a sense of luxury that was not attainable during the grey communist era. But her initial fascination quickly vanished. She found herself disagreeing with the standards: from the use of unsafe ingredients, to the lack of authentic results, to the manipulative aspects of the industry.

 

It was then when Ela decided to create a professional skincare line which was safe to use, featuring only natural/organic ingredients, and delivering real, lasting results. She embarked on that quest with a team of world-class experts and scientists. After 6 years of research and development the OrganicSeries skincare line was born and launched in Poland in 2009.  Manufactured in France and Poland, OrganicSeries skincare is now available in over 4,000 medi-spas throughout Europe.

 

Ela has always been an enthusiast of yoga and a healthy lifestyle. In the fall of 2010 she attended a yoga class led by Iwona Kozak, a yoga/holistic lifestyle teacher who also had a long career as a business executive in North America and EU. Ela and Iwona became friends and later business partners unified by a common desire to offer ecologically friendly products which were safe and delivered results.

 

Iwona’s passion for integrating business with a healthy lifestyle and her commitment to Ela’s vision and her product line, led her to co-founding Holistic Brands Corporation which is now the exclusive distributor of OrganicSeries products in North America under the brand ElaSpa.

 

Ela’s and Iwona’s vision is expanded by a wholehearted desire to be engaged in a meaningful social change by providing products of integrity and by supporting selected charities helping women and children.
