We are thrilled and truly honored to announce that the International Spa Association (ISPA) has chosen Eminence President, Boldijarre Koronczay, for the 2015 Visionary Award. As one of the most prestigious awards in the skin care industry, this accolade is presented each year to an industry notable who has made major contributions to health and wellness over the lifetime of their career. For Boldijarre - and for everyone who works at Eminence - the award represents recognition of our mission to enhance the well-being of all our customers naturally.
Eminence Organic Skin Care was built on half a century of Hungarian herbal craftsmanship and our belief that natural and organic heals. Boldijarre’s part of the story began at age five when he was diagnosed with leukemia and given only a slim chance for survival. His mother and grandmother, both estheticians, nurtured his health by only allowing him organic foods and natural products handcrafted by their family business. His extraordinary survival marked the beginning of his passion for organic living and the drive to bring this awareness to the skin care industry.
After rigorous training in Hungary to become an esthetician, Boldijarre set his sights on spreading his message on organic living and skin care to North America. In 1998, with little means, Boldijarre and his brother Attila moved the family company to Vancouver and built it from the ground up with countless pitches and miles travelled. “I have dedicated my entire life to the spa industry and the organic movement – before organic was ‘mainstream’,” says Boldijarre. “This is the moment where I can reflect and honestly say that all of the late nights, sacrifices, uphill battles and thousands of miles spent on the road each year have been truly worth every second.”
Through decades of hard work, Boldijarre took Eminence from a locally-grown family company and expanded it into over 40 countries and reaching millions worldwide, while still maintaining quality organic ingredients and products. At this moment of reflecting on accomplishment, we feel sincerely honored by ISPA’s presentation of this year’s Visionary Award to Boldijarre.
Thank you to all our partners and customers who have supported us over the years, and we look forward to continue providing extraordinary products and extraordinary service!
