Delectible Treat-ments from Aqua Dessa

While most of their peers are just starting their careers and paying their
dues (and college debts), twenty six year olds- Ric Kostick and Susie Wang are revolutionizing the beauty industry with innovative, highly effective, clinically proven, all natural treatments that heal and beautify the skin. They don’t just use trendy ingredients that have a good reputation or use a dab of enticing ingredients for appeal… To pass for Aqua Dessa, all the ingredients are clinically proven to improve the health of your skin and all the formulas are highly concentrated and potent.

Aqua Dessa is an all-natural skincare line made with only the highest quality ingredients. Only the most effective and the best of vitamins, essential oils, medicinal herbs, botanicals, seaweeds, vegetables, fruits, and other skin nourishing, proven ingredients are used with an emphasis on high concentrations of potent antioxidants. While other companies skimp and use small amounts of a “natural ingredient” to lure customers, Aqua Dessa products are 100% active ingredients, absolutely no fillers, no water, no synthetic chemicals, no animal by-products (except honey) nothing but pure goodness…. Aqua Dessa is fully concentrated with only the best and most effective active ingredients.

Three different, luxury/cosmetic conglomerates bid millions of dollars to acquire Aqua Dessa. As tempting as it was, Susie and Ric didn’t sell themselves short. “It was very hard to walk away from all that money, but we believed in our hearts, if we sacrificed a few million dollars right now, it would mean billions later”. Ric and Susie knew Aqua Dessa was an un-mined Diamond mine with unlimited diamonds. So, Ric and Susie turned down the millions of dollars and decided to start mining for their own diamonds. They sold off formulas to the world’s largest cosmetic companies and took 2 years to research, test, and develop a fresh new line of exciting products that the world has never seen… the new line will launch May, 2004.

“I have always been obsessed with beauty products,” Susie recalls.Ê “It is
my passion and what I’m innately talented in.Ê I started early. I began
pampering myself when I was a child, getting spoiled like a princess at
exclusive spas regularly since I was 5 years old. And ever since- health, beauty, self-nurturing and pampering has become the way of life. The day I turned 15 (the legal age to work), I went to Neiman Marcus and begged (and got) for my first job as a makeup artist for a prestigious cosmetic line.Ê From that point on, my love, my knowledge, and my passion for the world of beauty escalated.” Soon, Susie began doing makeup for runway fashion shows, magazine shoots, and displaying her makeup talent on celebrity supermodels such as Cindy Crawford - when she was still only 16.

Rick also always had a passion- his love for business. Building empires and the world of business fascinated him. His love for business started early. When in elementary school, while his classmates were out in the school yard playing dodge ball, Rick was huddled in the library alone, busy reading about business tycoons… dreaming of the day he’ll too become a business icon. While Rick’s friends wanted to play Dungeons and Dragons, Ric negotiated with them and convinced them to play moneymaking games.


Ric and Susie both attended UC Berkeley. When they met, it was love at first sight. They are best friends; soul mates and they have the best time working together. With Rick’s natural business talents and Susie’s creativity- it was a dream marriage (both in business and personal) that equaled success and will escalate to a beauty empire.

And when all you want to do is relax, soak in “Wine Bath” as your body gets intoxicated as it drinks up all the healing benefits of red wine.
