The Bia Collection harnesses the power of indigenous Irish botanicals and BiaComplex™ to address skin hydration, moisture retention, and cleansing without stripping the skin.
The Antü Collection harnesses the power of indigenous Patagonian botanicals and AntuComplex™ to address skin barrier protection, inflammation, and reduction of reactive oxidative stress from pollution or UV exposure.
Both collections combine modern analytical chemistry with the ethnobotany of herbal medicine dating back to ancient tribes.
