Founders: Alejandro Castro Padilla, Ana Catalina Sanchez Mantilla
Location: San Jose, Costa Rica Founded in 2010
Ana Catalina and Alejandro envisioned a company that produced locally made health and beauty products that could go toe to toe with any international brand. Their entrepreneurial spirits and the desire to create jobs and prosperity in Costa Rica rather than buying imported goods led them to grow Catalina’s Collection to a full line of high performing health and beauty products.
They make and market their own products which has allowed them to create at least 10 direct jobs and hundreds of indirect ones. Many of their products are eco-friendly, some use recyclable packaging and some use natural sustainable raw materials.
