AVYA Skincare has launched three new products as a part of the Hydroveda collection that are inspired by nature and designed to regain balance between the body, mind, spirit and environment.

The collection includes the brand's proprietary peptide complex, which additionally incorporates turmeric, neem and peony for specific skin benefits:

  • Colorless, odorless tetrahyrdocurcumin from turmeric reportedly has been shown to fight inflammation at the molecular level, stimulating the body’s own antioxidant enzymes and protecting the skin against free radicals and oxidative environmental stress;
  • Neem, an antioxidant with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, is said to prevent acne and protect the skin. Its astringent action can exfoliate and decrease pore size, while a high content of vitamin E soothes irritation; and
  • Peony, which according to the company, has been used for thousands of years for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to soothe the skin. It also is a reported complexion stabilizer that brightens the skin.

The complex is microencapsulated to disperse into the skin. This allows the botanicals to deliver "medical-grade results with maximum benefits," stimulating the natural production of collagen for firmer, stronger skin, the company reports.

The existing collection includes a serum, eye cream and moisturizer. The three new additions include:
