I founded Blavia skincare in a quest to take charge of how look and feel. For as long as I can remember, my mother always encouraged my sister and I to moisturize our skin to maintain it hydrated and healthy. So, by the time I was in my early 20's I started to question why wasn’t I using a moisturizer that would strengthen and protect my skin, and one that would complement the loss of collagen we begin to experience exactly at this age. And, caring for my skin, body, and mind in a preventive way has always been a personal wellness priority.

I grew up always connected to the sea and its immensity and strength inspired me in so many ways. The energy of its waves recharged me and its smell made me value more my present time. This is something I wanted to hold forever and it is a special reason why I started researching blue biotechnology. I fancied to be at home and continue experiencing the clean and mindfulness feeling of being close to the ocean.   

I am happy and proud to share with you my products. I hope that you love Blavia Skincare as much as I do and that you too feel well, strengthened, and beautiful.

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.
