Global beauty: Latina skin care brand La Bella

Updated on February 20, 2016

Who needs Hispanic-focused beauty products and what can these productsdo?

It's a big world out there! Ever since ancient, cross-continental trade routes evolved, people have enjoyed the various ideas, products, fragrances and flavors that other cultures have discovered. There have been a significant number of books and magazine articles highlighting the joys of finding beauty products in foreign countries. There's a fascination with the sirens of other places, even throughout history: Helen of Troy, Cleopatra, Japanese geishas, Queen Esther, etc.

La Bella's formulations for Latina beauties is the latest in beauty products that add exotic flair to our looks. Perhaps you're wondering if La Bella is only for Hispanic people. Not at all! Everybody will enjoy it.

But don't be so quick to write off your possible affinity to the line! Maybe you think that you don't have Latina or Latino beauty needs with your skin and hair, that you aren't of Hispanic lineage. But a thorough knowledge of world history and migration might change your mind.

Hispanics can include those from Spain, Portugal, Moorish Spanish descendants in North Africa, the Philippines, Spanish descendants in Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany and Basque areas of France (thanks to the Spanish Crown protectorates in the Holy Roman Empire), Sephardic Jews who migrated all over Europe and the Middle East at the time of the Spanish Inquisition and Ashkenazi Jews who geneticists say have at least one Spanish ancestor.

Additionally, Hispanics include Caribbean peoples after Christopher Columbus discovered the New World, Afro-Caribbean peoples after the advent of slavery, Central Americans, South Americans, mixed Native Americans, settlers of the American South and West, the Melungeons of Appalachia with their complicated history (sometimes called "Jewish Cherokee") and even "Black Irish"/"Black Scots" -- the descendants of survivors of Spanish galleons that shipwrecked near the United Kingdom! You can see, it would be almost surprising if you didn't have some Hispanic DNA. Think of your beauty!

Therapeutic Foot Cream comes in a big, generous plastic squeeze bottle. This ingenious lotion-consistency product is practically an instant pedicure on its own. With peppermint and eucalyptus oils, it has a refreshing feeling and keeps your feet from being stinky. They also incorporate a good amount of ground pumice, so you can micro-exfoliate while giving yourself a foot massage. Hold off on use for a couple of days if you have any cuts in your feet.

Rose Hip Oil with Vitamin E is perfectly sized for 3-1-1 carry-on travel bags/TSA requirements. A mixture of mineral oil, Vitamin E and rose hips oil (the fruit borne by rose plants, rich in Vitamin C), dry or chapped skin, stretch marks and scars. I also suggest rubbing a drop on frizzy hair ends, using it for massages, and -- if your complexion can handle mineral oil -- as an emulsifier for powdered cosmetics: add a drop to blushes to make a "cream" blush. Also, if your lipstick has dried out, add a drop or two to enrich it with oils again. Try adding a spoonful or two to your bath. It's also an excellent light cuticle oil.

La Bella cosmetic line

La Bella is the leading Hispanic line here in the USA, catering to the unique cosmetic needs of Latina women. I was happy to be hosted to experience it. The products are available in mass-market stores, chain grocery stores -- both of which have many 24/7 retailers -- and even online.

Not only are these products specifically formulated for the Hispanic community, but they're also good for the whole family and affordably priced. Also, I notice by reading their labels -- and as their website articulates in detail -- that La Bella relies on lots of naturally sourced ingredients, including:

  • almonds
  • aloe vera
  • argan oil
  • avocado oil
  • collagen
  • chamomile
  • chili pepper
  • cocoa butter
  • coconut oil
  • eucalyptus oil
  • honey
  • horsetail extract
  • oat proteins
  • placenta extract
  • pumice
  • rose hips
  • snail extract (!)
  • Vitamin E
  • wheat proteins

It's worth spending a couple of minutes to check out their research as to the efficacy of these ingredients.
