Science


The skin is the largest organ of the human body. It performs a number of important functions which keep us alive, protected, and well. In addition, our skin is constantly on display and under judgement. We judge it when we look in the mirror for blemishes.  Others judge it when gauging attraction and during conversation. Needless to say, it is necessary to commit to a routine of caring for our skin. Failing to do so can leave us with conditions we all fear: acne, wrinkles, dry skin, erythema, discoloration, blackheads, a dull complexion, and the list goes on.

The key however, is how we care for our skin. Many products on the market can cause further damage to skin due to their harsh additives. Our unique formulas provide a variety of desirable benefits, without exposing you to harmful ingredients.

The rigorous product development process at HerbavanaTM involves the use of reputable, evidence-based literature in order to identify optimal ingredients. These ingredients include dermaceutical-grade botanicals, organic acids, and premium extracts sourced from various regions of the world. Once the appropriate formulation is selected, we undergo extensive testing to ensure compatibility, stability, and synergy among the various constituents. The end result? Meticulously formulated, advanced skin care products you can comfortably use knowing endless hours of research and development have gone into each product. But don’t take our word for it! Take a look at some of the research we’ve compiled below...
