Also known as goldenberry, this Andean plant was originally cultivated by the Incas and is now recognized for its efficacy in battling the signs of aging. The uchuva extract we use in our formulas hydrates the skin, making it brighter, while also restoring its elasticity and tautness.
Our uchuva extract comes from the calyx, a thin outer layer that envelops and protects the fruit. The calyx has long been a healing ingredient thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, yet its use in skincare is completely innovative.
Innovative skincare solution that protects the skin and restores elasticity
We source our uchuva from Cundinamarca, Colombia, where it is hand-harvested by local farmers. The fruit is then separated from the calyx that envelopes it, which is dried and manually pressed to achieve the powder used in our formulas; this extraction process is green and clean. Our supplier is GLOBAL G.A.P. certified, which means he is committed to protecting the environment through sustainable agricultural practices; he also works towards the preservation of biodiversity through reforestation programs.
