Embracing the Scandinavian belief that beauty stems from within, we’re on a mission to foster confidence in your skin through pure and simple all-natural oils to heal the skin from the inside out. 




Our Story

Created for you in my treatment room

ISA ALEX is a love letter to my clients.

For the past two decades, I’ve been fortunate to work skin-close with individuals like you, addressing all kinds of skin concerns. Whether you’re seeking to restore your skin’s vibrancy, or you’re battling hormonal acne, emotional well-being and confidence are deeply intertwined with your skin’s health. 

Embracing skin's uniqueness is at the core of my facial treatments, which incorporate custom oil blends tailored to your needs. The alchemy of aromatherapy, pure oils, and my proprietary stress-relieving facial massage can transform not only your skin but also your self-confidence.

Inspired by my client’s desire to continue their treatment at home, I refined my skin-specific formulas considering both skin and wellness needs. What started with a small collection of pure skin oils has grown into a curated range of skincare to treat the most common concerns I see as an esthetician—always inspired by you.

Meet the Founder

Gunilla Eisenberg 

Skin Alchemist, Award Winning Esthetician, and Founder of ISA ALEX

Growing up in Denmark shaped Gunilla’s view of skin, beauty and aging. She believes that the goal shouldn’t be to fix or stop the aging process, but to take an extra moment to care for your skin and evoke the highest version of yourself. This philosophy carries over to her transformative skin services, hand-crafted products, and skin coaching programs. 

In 2005, soon after opening her establishment, Skin Butik in San Francisco, Gunilla gathered a loyal following of women seeking her holistic approach, unique use of oils, and expertise. The buzz spread catching Allure Magazine’s attention, which featured her revolutionary “Better than Botox” facial and named her “Best Facialist in San Francisco,” further expanding her fanbase to celebrities. 

Gunilla emerged as a trailblazer, especially with her use of oils on the skin, which at the time was uncommon. After a decade of working with her clients, Gunilla has expanded the benefits you could get through a one-on-one treatment with her, to a universal experience through ISA ALEX  (formerly Gunilla Skin Alchemy) and skin courses. 

“Plant oils are mysterious and sensual to me. I first learned about them as a teenager growing up in Southern Spain. The essences of jasmine and sweet almond oil were exotic and mesmerizing to me. 

I began to learn more about the healing aspects of aromatic oils and so my deep passion of plant alchemy was born.”
