Eminence Organic Skincare
Since its inception in 1958, Eminence Organic Skincare has been using sustainable farming and green practices to create natural, organic, and Biodynamic® products.
They believe in providing the best skincare products possible. Their products are free of parabens, animal by-products, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, harmful colorants and fragrances, mineral oils, petroleum, and other harsh cosmetic chemicals.
They use hand-picked and hand-mixed fresh ingredients to create products that contain potent healing and beautifying properties. Many of these ingredients are combined with pure waters drawn from a thermal hot spring lake containing minerals and trace elements found nowhere else on earth.
These products are handmade without any severe heating or hydrogenating processes that can affect the nutritional content and potency of natural ingredients. Vitamins are captured in their all-natural fresh base, offering dramatic results as actual seeds, pulps, and peels impart regenerative and healing powers that only nature can produce.
They constantly look for ways to reduce their carbon footprint by using wind energy, geothermal heating, and solar power energy in the making of their products.
The Eminence Mission is TO ENHANCE YOUR WELL-BEING NATURALLY through extraordinary products and service. The Eminence Promise is to deliver happiness and extraordinary service by providing the healthiest and most effective skin care products. They are committed to protecting the future of our planet through green practices – for every product sold, they will plant a tree.
The founders started the company with a dream to deliver high-quality, organic skin care, and their vision has led Éminence to where it is today.

His passion for the industry drives him to continue personally educating at trade events with his signature humorous and entertaining presentation style, sharing his enthusiasm, inspiration, and knowledge at every session. As an innovator of the organic movement, Boldijarre was honored with the International Spa Association’s Visionary of the Year Award for his lifelong dedication to education and organic wellness.
Boldijarre’s unparalleled reputation as a Master Esthetician has attracted many A-list celebrity clientele including Channing Tatum, Paula Patton, Jessica Biel, and Katherine Heigl. A dedicated philanthropist, Boldijarre founded Éminence Kids, a charitable initiative that provides nutritious, organic meals to seriously ill children worldwide. Between trips to Hungary, where he researches new esthetics treatments and natural ingredients, and educating at tradeshows worldwide, Boldijarre makes his home in the beautiful city of Vancouver.
Attila Koronczay, General Manager, grew up in Budapest, Hungary, until he and his brother, Boldijarre, moved to Canada in 1996. With a degree in Engineering, Attila plays a key role in the vision of Éminence’s ongoing commitment to the environment by ensuring all office and warehouses are dedicated to green practices. From the eco-friendly Vancouver office, Attila oversees the natural, organic, and Biodynamic® farm production, product development, and manufacturing in Hungary.
Attila is directly involved in the day-to-day operations of the business, often traveling to trade shows and participating in charitable events. Attila personally visits the children at Semmelweis Children’s Hospital in Budapest for the Éminence Kids Initiative during his biannual visits to Hungary, serving them organic, cold-pressed juice and giving them gifts. He stays active, too, and likes to participate in the Ride to Conquer Cancer, an event and cause that is near to the hearts of both Attila and his brother. In 2011, he was awarded the Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Éminence’s contributions to the community and Province of British Columbia.
Eminence is committed to giving back to the community and those in need through charitable contributions and support.
One of the key charitable partnerships is with Trees for the Future, an organization committed to planting trees within rural communities in the developing world. By planting trees, Trees for the Future enables these communities to restore their environment, grow more food, and build a sustainable future. “It is our commitment to plant a tree for every retail product we sell. Currently, we are planting trees in 19 developing countries, including Burundi, Uganda, Ghana, and Tanzania.”
At Eminence Kids Foundation, “we believe that providing organic, locally-sourced and nutrient-rich foods for seriously ill children to eat is an essential part of their treatment, healing, and long-lasting health.” The Éminence Kids Foundation donates organic fruits, vegetables, and foods to sick children around the world.
Éminence is a proud supporter of Breast Cancer research and has contributed more than $100,000 toward research efforts since 2007. “Cancer research has always been close to our hearts,” as president, Boldijarre Koronczay, is a survivor of childhood leukemia. They are regular contributors to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society and the Lung Cancer Research Foundation through monetary donations and product gifting for various fundraising events. “We contribute to several other charities throughout the year and are continuously looking for areas of need where we can offer our support.”
