Ofra Gaito, a CIDESCO Therapist and makeup artist, began her career in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1979. The CIDESCO diploma is recognized as the most advanced certification in the field of Esthetics and Beauty Therapy in the world. The standard is awarded to individuals with the ability to analyze the skin as well as the body, and is a distinction which has helped shape her career’s trajectory.

The success or her first salon & spa led Ofra to open a second, which both thrived throughout the 80's. In the early 90's, Ofra expanded her business to include products distribution for European cosmetic companies in South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand, expanding their distribution to over 400 new locations.
