Our Story


A unique and proprietary anti-wrinkle that exhibits both regenerative and protective skin properties.  Plavida leverages the molecules your own body uses for skin repair.  Plavida contains Platelet Healing ComplexTM (PHC), a patent-pending growth factor concentrate that mimics the regenerative action of platelets, and also contains superoxide dismutase, one of our body’s strongest natural anti-oxidants.  Plavida is a light serum that is colorless and scentless, and is applied each night either alone, or before your usual night-time regimen.  Plavida has been tested for nearly two years and our testers have reported a significant reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and a skin tone that’s ‘even and bright.’

Our Story

We love telling our story….Platelet Healing ComplexTM (PHC), the key ingredient found in Plavida, was serendipitously discovered in a nationally-known cellular therapy laboratory in California.  While developing a solution to support regenerative medicine research, we discovered that the growth factors recovered with our patent-pending process grew skin cells that were particularly healthy and robust.

In 2016, we formulated PHC, along with additional known human and plant-derived anti-oxidants and protective molecules that have anti-wrinkle effects, into a serum we now call Plavida.  One such molecule is super-oxide dismutase, your body’s own natural anti-oxidant, which has been indicated to have anti-wrinkle properties.  PHC contains growth factors and cytokines, which when released, have been shown to have healing, regenerative and protective properties.

Plavida is both protective and rejuvenating, as it provides the molecules your own body and skin use to heal and protect itself.  We’re confident you’ll experience a reduction in wrinkles and a more even and bright skin tone, as our testers have reported.  We are now excited to share our discovery with you!
