Rethinking beauty since 1979
The journey of Natura Bissé is an ever-unfolding story: intuition, passion, perseverance, investigation and connecting with people are the essence of our skincare brand.
It all started with the power of touch in Barcelona in 1979. Ricardo Fisas, the founder and mastermind behind Natura Bissé, made a curious observation that would change the skincare industry forever: he noted that a factory employee who worked with amino acids had strikingly soft hands.
Investigating further, Fisas discovered that exposing natural free form amino acids to his skin had a powerful cosmetic effect.
And the first Natura Bissé formula was born. Would you like to know more about the Fisas family? We spend a day with them in this article.

RICARDO FISAS NATURA BISSÉ FOUNDATION
In 2008, Ricardo Fisas and Gloria Vergés, the founders of Natura Bissé, created a private and independent foundation committed to the welfare of vulnerable people; an initiative in keeping with their personal values.
From then on, the Ricardo Fisas Natura Bissé Foundation has created collaborative and sustainable projects alongside top professionals, wherever we identify a social need that we believe we can help with.
Two initiatives were born: the Oncology Aesthetics program and Project Difference. The first is carried out in hospitals and patient associations. We offer individual free aesthetic skin care treatments to people undergoing oncological therapy. Project Difference, where we train and accompany teachers, is developed in schools. We help teachers to better support and monitor children with learning difficulties such as dyslexia and dyscalculia.
In addition, the Foundation also collaborates with other organizations who support and accompany those living in poverty, experiencing loneliness or those at risk of social exclusion.
Thanks to Natura Bissé, who fund the Foundation with 0.7% of their total earnings, and to the support of their network of clients, distributors, collaborating companies and staff, we can make these programs and collaborations possible.
