You’ll Never Believe What We Found Under JAFRA HQ
What was inside JAFRA’s Time Capsule
By Isel Longoria
In the hot summer of 1979, when JAFRA was just 23 years old, loyal and passionate consultants gathered in their bellbottom jeans and polyester jackets for the opening of JAFRA’s new Headquarters in Westlake Village, CA.

Co-founder, Jan Day, was so excited about this milestone for our company and to make sure her JAFRA family was part of it, she extended invitations to consultants around the world to contribute to a time capsule that would be filled with JAFRA hopes and dreams. This relic would be buried beneath our headquarters in Westlake Village, CA, not to be opened until 2001, when a freak flood would bring our capsule to the surface.
In addition to high-quality beauty products, a rich history is something that JAFRA carries throughout its evolution. To celebrate, we looked through all of JAFRA’s old archives and found some amazing memories and events that we weren’t aware of. One of the things that we discovered was JAFRA’s time capsule! Happy birthday JAFRA Fam! In honor of our 64th anniversary, we’ve opened the vault and are so excited to share the inspiring words of our history.

“ I hope Jafra will be as rewarding to all the consultants in the 21st century as it has been to me. Jafra has taught me to share and to love my fellow neighbor. If each one of us uphold our sharing and care ideas, I know that this world will be a great place to live in in the 21st century.”

“To my sisters in Jafra,
I hope our company is as good to you as it has been to me. Jafra’s sharing and caring concept has become a part of my everyday life and I wish you all the same success and happiness that I have enjoyed. Luck to you!”

“To all Jafra consultants in the year 2000, keep up the good work!
P.S. are there still trees?”
“If you try hard enough and long enough, Jafra will fall into place and you’ll get the confidence as many other Jafra consultants have.”
“ I hope as you read this, you have found as much pleasure, gained as many new friends, and really love Jafra as I have! If so, no matter how much time passes we shall remain close because of a very special little word – “JAFRA”
