Team

Teresa Da Graça

Founder & Chief Executive

 

At heart I am an entrepreneur – it’s in my blood but more than anything I am fuelled by passion and passion is energy! Having worked with some of the leading international advertising & media agencies and in international sports marketing across Europe, in 1997 I launched my first company in that very dynamic and challenging sector. Since 2007 my entrepreneurial skills have been fully focused on the health, wellness and aesthetic industry with the launch of the first Pure venture, Pure Urban Retreat in Basel, Switzerland.
This fuelled my wish to launch Pure Swiss Aesthetics in the UK market, a country which has always been ‘home at heart’. Pure Swiss Aesthetics is a strong, women-led, premium quality service focused company that focuses on what we believe in, on what excites us. Along with my highly skilled team of experts, we bring you some of the most advanced, innovative solutions on the market today that can help you bring your own business to the next level.
