Kivu Skincare – Highly effective, essential, skincare solutions

Who are Kivu Skincare?

Kivu was created by Harley Street Dermatologist Dr Benedetta Brazzini, as a response to her private client’s needs: simple yet effective skincare products that truly cater to all skin types, even the more challenging ones. Dr Benedetta and entrepreneur Manuela Gabbai have created a collection of carefully formulated products that combine ancient traditions with scientific research. With Helix Aspersa (snail secretion) being the main ingredient used in all Kivu’s products, the brand takes inspiration from Ancient Greek medicine, combining this with 21st-century luxury. Designed in London and formulated in Florence, Italy, classic packaging and effective ingredients combine to make Kivu a must-have for anyone wanting to strip back their routine in 2022.

Key ingredients

Each product has its own unique formula that includes Helix Aspersa with one other key active ingredient. Kivu Skincare focuses on using core ingredients through each range to provide truly visible results and glowing skin.

Traced back to ancient Greece, Helix Aspersa (also known as Snail Secretion) is renowned for its ability to reduce inflammation and hydrate the skin. Helix Aspersa is odourless, and is packed with Elastin, Collagen, Vitamins and Proteins; making it perfect for treating a variety of skin issues such as visible ageing, sun damage, pigmentation disorders, acne and rosacea.

Peptides (Acetyl Octapeptide-8, and Acetyl Tetrapeptide-5) are short chains of amino acids that serve as building blocks for proteins, like Collagen, Elastin, and Keratin. By adding peptides to your skincare routine, it promotes firmer and younger-looking skin.

Hyaluronic Acid famously holds up to 1000x its weight in moisture, promoting smooth and radiant skin, effectively showing results on all skin types.

Witch Hazel contains powerful antioxidant properties that can prevent irritants from entering your skin cells, perfect for calming and repairing the skin.

Bitter Orange Peel Extract contains plant compounds (Protoalkaloids) with anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties to improve skin health by promoting wound healing and Collagen formation.
