Pevonia Botanica Skincare

May 18, 2011 Reviewed by admin 1 Comment

Pevonia Botanica is a natural skincare brand, emphasizing the lack of parabens in their products, which is used by spas around the world. It was launched in 1991 and is headquartered in Daytona Beach, Florida. The brand is named after the Peonia flower. As noted before, Pevonia places heavy emphasis on trying to be low impact creating cruelty free products and eco-packaging.  Because of their popularity, they’ve launched an at home line.

The Good:

Not only can you find this product in spas, but it is also available at home. Their offerings are huge and they products targeting teens, men, and women of all ages which we just love. Both Jimmy and Pascal gave the company good reviews when trying out their products.

The Bad:

The price may be too steep for some, the Age-Defying Caviar Balm that Jimmy reviewed retails for $72. Also, the biggest flaw within this company is that they fail at listing ingredients. When buying a product, all Pevonia will give you is a few key ingredients from the product and little else.


Many times, high end lines are all about the packaging and pricing as opposed to the quality of the product. Not so with Pevonia; although the company only lists “key ingredients” as opposed to a list of all ingredients for each product on its website, it was easy enough to find ingredients on other sites.

Pevonia lists green tea, humectant, licorice, chamomile and tocopherol as key ingredients in its RS2 Care Cream. Dermstore has a more exact list, and the only less than stellar ingredient I found was phenoxyethanol. Even so, the preservative is 17th on a list of 22 otherwise beneficial components.

TIA has reviewed and recommended several Pevonia products, including the Age-Defying Caviar Balm, Easy Glide Shaving Emulsion, Soothing Balm, De-Aging Body Lotion, and Aqua Gel Foaming Cleanser. All of them have been lauded for their fantastic ingredients and lack of fillers and preservatives.

All in all, Pevonia seems to be well worth its price.

    Don't order this product. Don't order from
    This company. Their ingredient list is "scarce" so you don't really know what you are putting on your face
    Their return Policy is very lame. This is what they say verbatim, "Pervonia will accept returns or exchanges for any purchase that is returned within 30 days of the PURCHASE date ( red flag #1 ). All returns must be pre-approved by customer service. Return/Refund is ar the sole
    Discretion of Precious. Refunds will be provided in the form
    Of a store credit."

    These easy steps ( which are not easy ), email or call at 1-800-Pevonia to obtain your RMA.
    we will provide you with an RMA Number valid for 30
    Days from issue date. Pack item with RMA number written outside of package. Shipping fees are
    Non refundable. Ship to Pevonia International Attn: Pevonia Shop Returns 300 Fentress Blvd. Daytona Beach Florida 32114"

    This "marine creme" was around 82 dollars
    With 25 dollar
    Shipping fee not including tax. I never should have ordered it. I can tell I'm going to have to eat this scam. Don't fall for it and purchase skinceuticals, glominerals or some
    Other reputable item. The packaging was speculate though. The creme doesn't compare to
    Burts Bees. Pevonia is nothing special, ridiculously expensive for what it is and extremely difficult to return . Don't fall for this
