Limited Edition Terra Viva Vivifying Skin-D Nectar
This year, we welcome Terra Viva, literally meaning “living earth.”
Terra Viva is a surprisingly lightweight, bioactive hydrating cream-serum combining organic active ingredients with molecularly precise biotechnological components to harness the full power of nature. The result is a splendid nectar-textured hydration layer whose power not only lies in what it can do at the skin level, but how it can stimulate effects on an emotional level.
As we would expect from green-industry pioneer Ayuna, there’s a new ingredient rising to the top: vitamin D.
Vitamin D, often called the sunshine vitamin, plays an integral role in skin protection and rejuvenation, contributing to skin cell growth, repair and metabolism and enhancing the skin’s immune system. As we spend more and more time indoors, we become more and more vitamin D deficient, making Terra Viva ideal for daytime use.
Ayuna's new formula optimizes vitamin D in the skin which they call the Skin-D Effect: a firm, plump, revitalized complexion with a captivating radiance, as if its glow came from within.
This unprecedented formula combines stem cells from Living Stones, succulents that promote vitamin D production, and bio-sugars to restore the feel of supple and soothed skin. Astaxanthin, a super antioxidant, has been shown to improve elasticity and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. The life-giving power of cherry sublimate water and the emotional impact of an a new aromatic blend reinforces this one-of-a-kind formula.
Finally, Terra Viva introduces a new scent, an aromachological blend that stands out as an ode to positivity, a praise to life that impacts the mood thanks to the therapeutic power of more than twenty botanical essences.
Orchestrated under the baton of of Ayuna's authors with Provençal perfumers, Terra Viva’s Lifefullness Cocktail is a blend of fine citrus notes of lemon, grapefruit, mandarin and orange, wrapped in the complimentary scents of cedarwood, amyris, patchouli and vetiver. A hint of vanilla is added for sweetness and finished with cardamom, angelica, ginger and the greenery of gallium and mint.
It is important to acknowledge that Terra is an extraordinary product, an aspiration of the vision of its founders to craft a truly sustainable, fully biodegradable vessel. Terra, by nature, is not a perfect product. Each vessel was finished by hand and is completely unique. There are slight variations with each vessel, which can vary the performance of the seal and closure, as well as slight variations in the appearance. Ayuna knows this, and it is a part of the organic experience of a fully biodegradable, natural vessel and a signature of the character of Terra, please be aware of this as you unbox your unique, collectable Terra. Imperfections are to be expected.

ABOUT THIS BRAND
Ayuna was founded by Isabel Ramos and Begoña Sanjuan, two seasoned beauty professionals with a vision for innovation. Begoña is a master esthetician, passionate beauty industry professional and expert in product development, Spa and Wellness therapies and aesthetic treatments. Dr. Isabel Ramos has a PhD in chemistry and is an expert in Green Technology and the development of natural cosmetics with a unique understanding the science of the skin, biochemical and biophysical mechanisms and the art of product textures.
Through Ayuna's essential skincare products, Begoña and Isabel introduce a whole new dimension to how to treat the skin based on topical fasting and well-aging. Topical fasting has the same basis as general fasting; eliminate overstimulation, limit intake and provide a balanced diet to allow for self-repair and self-regeneration mechanisms to be immediately activated. Well-aging applies the principles of epigenetics and the brain-skin connection to refocus our view of skin aging. Research shows that our thoughts, lifestyle and environment can alter our DNA. Ayuna skincare embraces this research, with a slow and intentional approach to aging that gives us the space to connect with beauty in a positive way and adapt the teachings of mindfulness to the realm of beauty. Begoña and Isabel’s experience in skincare, combined with their extensive understanding of the sophisticated beauty client, active ingredients and application methodology led them to a natural evolution in the field of skincare. From this alliance of knowledge and experience Ayuna, Less Is Beauty was born – an evolutionary scientific-botanical approach to cosmetics that favors simple beauty and a commitment to pure, effective and clean cosmetics.
Winter skin miracle
I've been a subscriber for 5 years, and this is the only Hero that has ever inspired me to immediately get a second box. This makes my skin feel supple, soft, and hydrated, almost immediately. I have been putting a small amount of a mild cream over top to lock in the moisture, but I'm not sure I need to. My skin went from red, flaky, dry, and broken out from irritation to soft and soothed overnight. It also gives the same glow of youth that I get from the Joaquina oil and Mahalo's Vitality Elixir. I think the new scent suits this lighter type of product. It is still a little on the heavy side for me--my kitten makes a face when I try to cuddle him after applying!--but I like it. I really like the concept of this product because but sometimes you want a one-and-done so you can get on with your day (or night). I could see this displacing multiple items in my nighttime rotation, since this does it all.
Thank you for being such a long time subscriber, and for sharing your experience with Terra Viva. This product is something so special and unique, and we are so thrilled that you love it.
