Why traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and western technology is the beauty industry’s best-kept secret…

Posted by Viva Health Skincare on

TCM has been around for over 3,500 years but has only recently has grown popularity in what the age-old wisdom truly has to offer. Why so? Fundamentally, “The theory behind traditional Chinese herbalism is using natural sources and lifestyle changes to stimulate the body’s own restorative mechanisms […] Rather than viewing the body as separate systems or organs, […] in traditional Chinese herbalism the body is viewed as a complex network of interconnected parts.”[1] When all these interconnected parts are in balance, the body is considered healthy and consequently, according to TCM, the condition of our skin, nails and hair can tell us a lot about our internal health. Beauty and radiance on the outside, generally indicates amazing health internally.

Our skin care utilizes wholesome TCM ingredients such as ginseng known to revitalize and brighten the skin, angelica root containing powerful anti-photoaging properties, peach resin that is a natural plant-based collagen providing youthfulness, dong quai, perfect for treating eczema and much more. We carefully research how each ingredient can provide a holistic approach to improving skin’s appearance, through nurturing from the inside out and restoring balance to problematic skin conditions, such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne.

Although our philosophy to our skin formulation is mainly influenced by TCM, we know a little extra science goes a long way. Including an array of active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, DMAE, MSM, CoQ10, alpha-lipoic acid extracted from naturally sourced elements, supplies concentrated nutrients that transform our skin care from not simply just natural but to a powerhouse combination of completely effective components, working together to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, to clarify, soften, refine and rejuvenate your skin.

Life is all about balance! Hence, as why we believe we are the Yin and Yang to beauty care by combining two extremely different approaches and using one to enhance the other. Our goal is to provide you with a beauty care that you can feel good about with full transparent ingredient lists and a range of products for different skin types. Nature provides it, science refines it, WE deliver it.
