April 21st is a very significant date in NATURA BISSÉ’s hometown, Barcelona Saint George’s Day is a commemoration of love, culture and legends, when books and roses are given to loved ones to show affection and care. That’s why NATURA BISSÉ chose this festivity to be the framework of its official day. Following more than three decades of hard work and dedication, this unique event celebrates NATURA BISSÉ's strong commitment to beauty and skin care. It is a special occasion to remember the personal journey and core values of the one who was - and will always be - the pillar of our company, Ricardo Fisas.
Every April 23, the streets of Barcelona (the city where NATURA BISSÉ was born), fill with roses and books in a lovely tradition that reaches back over 500 years.
Legend tells us that Sant Jordi (Saint George), a brave and honorable knight, rescued the princess from a dragon. . A rose sprang up where the blood flowed from the dragon's body which the knight gave to the princess. From that day forward, men give roses to the women. They, in turn, give the men a book.
Every April 23, San Jordi - the patron saint of lovers since the XV century – shines, as did Ricardo Fisas, lover of life with a very special personal story that is well worth sharing.
On the occasion of the celebration of BEAUTY LOVERS day, Natura Bissé reprinted Ricardo Fisas' autobiography, Brushstrokes of a Lifetime. In this memoir, the founder of Natura Bissé tells his personal and professional story in a very intimate way, sharing his company's secrets for success.
