ABOUT THE FOUNDER:
Maria Garcia is an established name in the field of beauty products. Maria's childhood dream of producing her own range of top quality skincare and fragrance of the soul arrived during 1997.
As with her illustrious predecessor, Coco Chanel, Maria Garcia came from humble beginnings. She was born on Madiera and then together with her family came to South Africa as a child.
As an adult, Maria honed her skills working for other cosmetic firms. In 1993, the entrepreneurial spirit came forth and she launched a vibrant cosmetic company. She spent three years building that company into a highly successful enterprise that was later acquired by a major American cosmetic group.
In 1997, she began the voyage of making her childhood dream a reality with the launch of M.G. Labs International. All the years of research and learning Maria gained has paid dividends. In 1999, M.G. Labs International won a major award in competition against more than 2,000 of world's top cosmetic and skincare companies.
Maria's trademarks have always been uniqueness, individuality, high-energy, innovation, integrity and self-discovery. So it should come as no secret, these are the trademarks of Maria Garcia and MG Labs.
