Natural Ingredients

Spin-off from a biotechnology company, Riovea creates skincare products that are scientifically proven, natural and safe, bringing the secret to healthy skin to you.

Riovea believes in all-natural skincare solutions:

  • Natural cosmetics are plant-based, and they contain many essential vitamins and oils, and work with your body to maintain healthy skin and hair.
  • Natural cosmetics are eco-friendly and cruelty-free (no animal tests).
  • Natural cosmetics lack harmful chemicals such as alcohol, parabens and many others that are frequently used in synthetic-based cosmetics. Overtime, these chemicals damage your skin.

The "TrioActive" Formula 

Medicinal plants have been used in traditional medicine since prehistoric times. The neemimageneem tree (Azadirachta indica) is well known for its healing power and has been used in traditional Indian medicine for more than 4,000 years. Its seeds, bark, and leaves contain natural ingredients with proven antiseptic, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcer, and antifungal activities [1].

Lithospermum erythrorhizon: Similar to ginseng, this medicinal plant is used to cure fever, constipation, liver disease, arteriosclerosis, poison and inflammation. Shikonins in this plant are known to inhibit glycation, modulate oxidative stress, suppress inflammation and UV-absorption. These molecules protect oxidative-stress-induced skin aging by inhibiting degradation of skin collagen.

However, the medicinal potential of many such magic plants remains largely untapped. Riovea uncovered many of their amazing properties, including skin brightening, anti-wrinkle and anti-aging abilities.

Riovea's innovative "TrioActive" formula is obtained from neem and other medicinal plants using a non-invasive extraction technology. Riovea is the first to discover and appreciate the amazing properties of neem in lowering melanin content in skin cells and hence in skin brightening. TrioActive is rich in natural vitamin E, fatty acids, antioxidants, antibacterial and anti-fungal that work synergistically to improve skin elasticity, protect skin against free radicals and microorganism, help reduce the redness and swelling. This rich formula nourishes, rejuvenates and protects the skin against everyday environmental stress and signs of aging.

Skin Brightening, Anti-Aging, Anti-Wrinkle

Skin color is due primarily to the presence of a pigment called melanin. The enzyme tyrosinase plays a central role in skin melanin biosynthesis. Skin is brightened when excessive tyrosinase activity is inhibited. Traditional skin whitening agents (hydroquone, kojic acid and arbutin etc) lighten skin through inhibiting tyrosinase. These "bleaching chemicals" were developed 50 years ago, but have safety concerns (allergy, hypomelanosis, amelanosis [2]). Therefore the search for safer natural alternatives is becoming all the more necessary.

Riovea has successfully identified all-natural skin brightening, anti-aging and anti-wrinkle ingredients. Realizing the value and potential for skincare, Riovea partnered with industry leaders to bring safe and effective products to the market.
