Riovea is a biotechnology company located in California's Silicon Valley. Riovea develops natural safe innovative skincare.
Our skin color is due primarily to the presence of a pigment called melanin. The enzyme tyrosinase plays a central role in skin melanin biosynthesis. Skin is brightened when excessive tyrosinase activity is inhibited. Traditional skin whitening creams use hydroquinone, kojic acid or arbutin that lighten skin through inhibiting tyrosinase. These "bleaching chemicals" were developed 50 years ago, but are abandoned or restricted due to safety concerns (allergy, hypomelanosis, amelanosis). Therefore the search for safer natural alternatives is becoming all the more necessary.
Riovea's innovative "TrioActive" formula is obtained from select medicinal plants such as neem using a proprietary non-invasive extraction technology. Riovea is the first to discover and appreciate the amazing properties of neem in lowering melanin content and skin brightening. TrioActive provides a safe and natural alternative to the bleaching chemicals. Furthermore its rich natural vitamins E, fatty acids, antioxidants, antibacterial and anti-fungal work synergistically to enhance skin elasticity, free radical protection and swelling reduction. This rich formula nourishes, rejuvenates and protects the skin against everyday stress and signs of aging.
