About Auvê Beauty
Auvê Beauty is a refined collection of beauty and lifestyle products that were inspired by Guyana, combining the elegance of worldly rituals with the technical experience of a seasoned product innovator. Our skincare products are powered by the Bootlace Tree (Epicura Falaca), an active botanical harvested from the Guyanese rainforest, known for its skin firming, toning and anti-aging properties.
Auvê is the first beauty line to be based on this magical Bootlace botanical. In Guyana, local Amerindians have traditionally used the Bootlace Tree bark and resin for toothaches, wound healing and to ease joint pains.
In cosmetics, the Bootlace tree bark extract targets a type of aging called inflammaging, a well-known phenomenon in the medical field. Skin inflammaging results from a number of stimuli including inflammation from burns; overexposure to UV rays; stress; toxins, such as pollution and smoking; trauma; alcohol; immune reactions; and infection by pathogens and foreign bodies, such as dirt and debris. Inflammation caused by free radicals induces degradation of cells, which in turn results in the reduction of collagen production. When our skin is constantly barraged by free radicals, it’s important to eliminate as many opportunities for exposure to these as possible. This includes limiting sun exposure, reducing stress, increasing sleep and not smoking.
With every day application, Bootlace (Epicura Falaca) Tree Extract was clinically tested to delay the visible signs of inflammaging, including age-related loss of elasticity, firmness and tonicity.
