MEET THE FOUNDER


For as long as I can remember, my mother always encouraged my sister and I to moisturize our skin in order to keep it hydrated and healthy. By the time I was in my early 20s, I started to ask myself why I wasn’t using a moisturizer that would strengthen and protect my skin – and one that would complement the loss of collagen that we begin to experience at this exact age!

I grew up feeling a deep connection to the sea, and its immenseness and strength has inspired me in so many ways. This was a connection that I wanted to cherish forever, and eventually it developed into the inspiration for my first steps into researching blue biotechnology and the power of marine collagen.

I am now pleased and proud to share my products – the culmination of that research – with you. I hope that you love Blavia Skincare just as much as I do and that you too feel revitalized, strengthened and beautiful thanks to the regenerative properties of the ocean!

The Brand 

Blavia is beauty and strength. The name origins go back to a town in France, a fortress that served for many years to protect the town from marine invasions and today, it is called the Blaye Citadel and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The name derives from “Bla” meaning warrior and “Via” meaning path- the best resemblance to our own skin, to a warrior mindset of strength, and to choosing to feel and be good, courageous, and gorgeous. 

Blavia Skincare is inspired in thriving women committed to their well-being and work-life balance, on their own terms. Women who are fun, passionate, relentless, and who seek too, that bit of strength to keep up with their grind and stand up for their goals.
