The ONDA story
Larissa Thomson was born and raised in New York City with an innate connection to the energy of the city and the people in it. Over the years she learned to understand the importance of balancing that energy with the regenerative healing powers that nature had to offer.
Larissa’s exposure to organic beauty and timeless style would eventually guide her to an impressive career in the fashion industry. Through her tenure as a fashion market director for today’s foremost magazines, she has been a leading translator of trends and a conduit of style for millions of consumers.
Your skin is your largest organ and can absorb up to 60% of the products you use within 26 seconds. If you can’t eat it, you shouldn’t use it on your body.
With her experienced eye for luxury, Thomson left the magazine business in 2014 and went on to found ONDA Beauty in 2016 with Sarah Bryden-Brown. Together they have created natural beauty destinations in New York and Sydney dedicated to a curated collection of luxury botanical products as well as developing their own line of products. In addition to providing access to pure and effective beauty brands in a modern, welcoming space, ONDA is the natural authority for living beautifully.
“Beauty is holistic,” she says. “It’s about treating your body with natural, pure and clean ingredients, inside and out. I believe nature provides everything you need to nourish your skin, hair and body, which is more potent and more powerful than anything synthetic.” Thomson is devoted to a life of healthy living and currently resides in New York City with her husband and son.
