The story goes back to 1930, when Mrs. Carmen Brenta initiated the first steps in hair removal.

Everything at the beginning was very craft and handmade, the products were purchased in drugstores and mixed at home, so it could not ensure a correct mixture or a wax free of impurities as we get today. Thus began, Carmen and her sister Mary waxing the Spanish royalty in Madrid.
