We are BRave

The founder, Petra Klimscha, was born in Munich and emigrated to Easter Island 21 years ago. In her adopted country, she first started with cold-stirred soaps on a natural basis and with regional ingredients from the local garden and the surrounding landscape in order to get to know the cosmetics market. Through this path she came into contact with scientists, manufacturers and producers in the field of cosmetics... and at some point she had the courage to win not only Chile, but also Europe with her ideas and products!

We are Glamorous

One of the photo models on this website is also an ambassador of the Rapa Nui culture!
Her name is Tahira. She is not only a real top model on Easter Island, but also a winner and thus queen of the annual Tapati festival. Every year, during the first two weeks of February, two contestants compete with their families, dance groups and competition teams. There are numerous competitions of various categories of Rapa Nui culture: Dance, singing, gastronomy, traditional sports, costumes made of natural materials and much more. The candidate who achieves the highest score at the end as a result of all the competitions is crowned Tapati Queen for one year.
