Cristiana Cosma-Spring 2018-New Entrepreneurs.
Cristiana Cosma Founder of Slim Lab.
Slim Lab concept started in late 2009 when I graduated from military school and suddenly I felt that something was missing in my life. I wanted to feel as a woman not an officer.
Each day in the military base led me to my dream, so I took action and I started studying medical school for alternative therapies. For 6 years I was between 2 passions: one for the army and another one for femininity. At the end I felt that this was my purpose in life, to help woman feel and look fabulous.
1. So tell us Cristiana, how did SlimLab start? For the past 9 years I have been working hard to develop a revolutionary anti-cellulite technique. When I had everything ready I took a big step: opening the Slim Lab Zürich as the first beauty centre and looking forward to extending, as the customers are amazed for the efficiency of the treatments and the high quality of service.
