Explore the star product, the Bakuchiol Miracle Night Serum and delve into the science behind its remarkable formulation. Join us as we explore how Olivanna caters to diverse skin types, blending natural ingredients and science to achieve radiant and balanced skin.

What inspired you to create Olivanna, and what sets it apart from other skincare brands?

Olivanna was inspired by my daughters, the need to create a luxury British brand that
harnessed British botanicals and science led ingredients, to create products that span generations.

Could you share some of the key principles or values that guide Olivanna's approach to skincare?

Our signature soothing complex contains organic chamomile, rosemary and cornflower
to relieve redness, irritation and pigmentation. This ensures our science led actives can work in harmony to deliver glowing radiant skin without any adverse reaction for sensitive or younger skin.

Our biotech approach to innovative formulations, allows us to curate a capsule collection of high performance skincare harnessing science led actives alongside British botanicals.

Why was it important to you to maintain building British-grown and natural skincare formulations?

By sourcing our ingredients locally across farms in Britain, we support our community and uphold the highest quality standards. Embracing natural formulations aligns with our commitment to provide skincare that is not only effective, but respects the environment. This approach allows us to create a luxury skincare experience that reflects our dedication to both high performance ingredients and sustainability.

Can you tell us about the signature Soothing Complex and how this helps against inflammation?

Our Signature Soothing Complex™ is a unique blend carefully crafted to address skin inflammation and promote a soothing experience. This exclusive complex combines three key botanical extracts: Rosemary, Chamomile, and Cornflower.

Rosemary, known for its antioxidant properties, plays a crucial role in protecting the skin from environmental stressors. It helps neutralise free radicals, which can contribute to inflammation and skin damage. Chamomile, on the other hand, is renowned for its anti-inflammatory and calming effects. It helps to reduce skin irritation and redness, promoting a more even and balanced complexion.

Cornflower extract further enhances the soothing properties of the complex. With its gentle and hydrating qualities, Cornflower contributes to relieving stressed skin, making it an ideal component for calming skincare formulations.

What is your hero product? Can you explain the science or innovation behind its formulation?

Our Bakuchiol Miracle Night Serum quickly became one of our best sellers. A natural
alternative to Retinol, this serum masterfully erases fine lines and wrinkles without a trace of irritation or sensitivity, unveiling a more luxurious and youthful complexion. Clinically proven to reduce wrinkle depth by up to 51% in 4 weeks, this potent antioxidant is pregnancy-safe and can also be used during the day.

How does Olivanna cater to the diverse range of skin types and concerns that exist?

Olivanna takes pride in addressing the diverse needs of various skin types and concerns through our innovative approach to skincare. At the heart of our formulations
is the unique Signature Soothing Complex ™, specially designed to benefit irritated, inflamed and sensitive skin.

Our team of skincare experts and botanical specialists work tirelessly to incorporate a blend of natural ingredients with high-performing actives, that not only cater to sensitive skin but also provide benefits for a wide range of skin concerns. Whether you have dry, oily, combination, or normal skin, Olivanna strives to offer solutions that promote balance and well-being.
