CoValence® began from two ideas. One, that a personal fascination with skin care products and ingredients could possibly be translated into a business and second, that while natural botanicals and biological ingredients were standard components in skin care back then. There was next to no data on what made some work much better than others, to achieve therapeutic results. Few people were asking the questions as data was much harder to source. (This was before the internet!) So the idea quickly evolved that maybe there was more that could be done to research natural ingredients from a scientific performance use perspective. Not just because they smelled nice or sounded pretty.
Thus began our company purpose, to identify potent natural ingredients and make seriously efficacious products. For instance: anti-aging botanicals like pumpkin, with its 100+ key molecular constituents such as Vitamin C and beta carotene; natural lighteners from fungi like Kojic Acid, antibacterial benefits of cranberry for problem skin and many more over the years. These do not sound ground-breaking today but they were in early 90′s! That’s why CoValence® was at the origins and a leader in Cosmeceutical manufacturing.
CoValence® consistently continues to fill the gap of innovative, fresh ideas within the professional and mass skin care markets.
Today, CoValence® has crafted hundreds of distinctive formulas, many of which are distributed by some of the most prominent and trusted brands in the industry. We are extremely proud of our accomplishments over the years, and it’s our pleasure to contribute to the success and integrity of skin care businesses around the world.
Success stems from passion, not compromise. Our passion is truly scientific and therapeutic treatment products and ingredients, not cheap watered-down “pseudo” skin care. Our passion has been the inspiration behind becoming a renowned company for quality, technology, efficacy, creativity, support, friendliness, and education… all of which can, unfortunately, be rare and difficult-to-find qualities among other formulation and manufacturing companies. Also unlike others, CoValence® is strictly confidential-we refuse to “name drop”, and we specialize in small batches and low minimums in addition to rapid scale-up for larger mass market brands. We have the utmost respect and appreciation for all of our clients, regardless of size or experience.
Everything that CoValence® is and does stems from what we and the entire staff would want from a company if we were in our clients’ shoes. As a result, you will find CoValence® to be not only exceptionally personable, helpful and hands-on, but also the best source for advanced, elegant and effective professional products.
We look forward to working with you and growing your business!
