Pevonia Botanica Skincare
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.
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 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.
