| Meet the Founder |

Jessica Tetu, knows the beauty and spa industry inside and out. Wanting to offer her clients a more natural alternative to the top skin care lines that are full of perfumes, mineral oils, harsh chemicals and fillers, she set out to establish an effective, paraben and cruelty free product line.

Jessica is the sole owner of four Just For You Day Spas in Saskatchewan & Alberta, Founder & CEO of Lia Reese Canada, (Saskatchewan’s Beauty Brand), Co-Founder of Entrepreneur306 Business Consulting and Founder & CEO of 4seventyone Recovery Resources, a non-for-profit charity she created with her brother assisting families of addiction.

How and why did you create Lia Reese Canada?

“I fell in love with the beauty and spa industry, and because of my extreme interest in the skin and how it functions, I began training in skin therapy and started closely working with dermatologists, skin care professionals and a Canadian laboratory in hopes of creating a line with their help and guidance. I was tired of carrying and offering skin care lines in my spas, that were full of perfume, mineral oil, harsh chemicals or other fillers. I also was extremely disappointed to find that so many lines still are testing their products on animals or are not 100% cruelty free. To me, this is just unacceptable. I felt the same way about parabens, (potentially harmful preservatives) that are used in skin and beauty products. I created my line to offer a high quality professional skin care line, that uses essential oils and botanicals instead of fragrances and astringents.”

Who is Lia Reese?

“My children are my utmost inspiration and motivation in all that I do. However, I also feel very inspired by lines that I have grown to love since I was a young girl, with most of those being created by skin care professionals, (that are now my mentors), who represented the line they created, with not only their name, but with confidence, strength and poise. My daughter inspires me in all of those ways. Her, and her name, (Ellia Reese) represent everything I wish for the Lia Reese product line; inner and outer beauty, confidence, warmth and authenticity. I wanted to create something unique, but from my heart. From there, Lia Reese Canada was born!”
