Origin of Riovea
Porcelain pale pigment. Rosy apple tints. An unblemished white canvas. These, according to my wife, are what would make up a masterpiece — flawless skin. Despite her superfluous purchases of expensive products, these did not give in to her natural aging appearance. As we grew old together, I started to notice the creases that grew more distinct, the dryness that begged for more moisturizing. Additionally, she has become more conscious about the chemicals present in most skincare products, and worry the side effects on her skin and her health will, one day, get to her. Her increasing desire for natural, safe and high-quality skin care products has intrigued me. Where could she start looking? And what skincare products could she trust? Luckily, I now have a solution for her.
It is Riovea, “Found the River”, a skin brightening and illuminating series that are based on real natural ingredients. Trained as a PhD biochemist, I have always believed in nature’s wonder - many plants and herbs have powerful healing, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant effects. These have been well documented in the medicinal literature, used for thousands of years, but also long neglected in the skincare industry. Our team, instead, developed a modern scientific process to screen, identify and extract medicinal plants that show real rejuvenating and brightening effects on skin cells.
The foundation of Riovea’s secret is the "TrioActive" formula. TrioActive is obtained from select medicinal plants including neem and Lithospermum Erythrorhizon, using a non-invasive extraction technology. How does it work? Skin color is formed primarily due to the presence of a pigment called melanin. The enzyme tyrosinase plays a central role in skin melanin biosynthesis. Our skin can be brightened when excessive tyrosinase activity is inhibited. Riovea is the first to discover and appreciate the amazing properties of neem in lowering melanin content in skin cells. In addition, 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, swelling and reveal skin's healthy natural glow.
The results are real. My wife’s friends have noticed how radiant and healthier her skin looked. Her friends tried my samples and were surprised by how naturally the elasticity, color, and smoothness of their skin had improved. After giving away many samples, I decided to make Riovea a reality for all of us.
Riovea’s brightening and illuminating line was developed by Riovea in the San Francisco bay area in US, and produced by one of the best skincare manufacturers in Japan. As I initially created Riovea for my wife, being natural, safe and effective is the key. Therefore, every product is formulated with highest possible amount of natural ingredients, and without parabens, petrolatum, mineral oil, alcohol, synthetic colors, sulfate detergents, PEGs, PPGs, phthalates, urea, DEA or TEA. Each product is allergy tested, non-irritating, and cruelty-free (not tested on animals).
With natural materials, pure water quality, excellent research and development facilities, thousands of tests, and continuous improvement, Riovea brings its natural skin care products to you and your loved one!
