La Mav's Tarj Mavi talks Organic Skin Science!

We are excited that special guest Tarj Mavi - La Mav Founder and creator took some time out to chat with us about her range of certified organic skin care which delivers effective and ground breaking results, all without the nasties!

What inspired you to launch La Mav skin care? : In fact, behind the creation of La Mav is a very personal experience. After the birth of my second child Jay in 1994 I developed a severe case of postpartum pigmentation. I searched everywhere to find products that were safe, healthy and effective, but to no avail. This is when the idea for La Mav was born. I wanted to create a line of unique products that were good for the skin, good for the body and good for the generations to come.

Tell us about the research and development of La Mav and why it's so important? 

La Mav came into being after extensive cosmetology research and development, involving the evaluation of data in the augmentation of skin firmness, elasticity and hydration. I have spent the last couple of years researching naturally derived certified active constituents that are free of all toxins (parabens, petrochemicals and synthetic ingredients). These constituents provide a potent result driven organic alternative for the repair, restoration and rejuvenation of the skin, at a cellular level, and provide outstanding age defying results that last.

What is the most unique and effective natural ingredient you have come across that new green beauty enthusiasts should know about when choosing organic skin care?  There are so many amazing natural ingredients, which work in synergy to help the skin heal from the inside, that it is impossible to name just one. What I’ve learned throughout the years is that nature has everything we and our skin need, and each and every ingredient is unique in its own way.

Why organic and natural skin care?  Because it works! The greatest thing about organic skin care is that it benefits the skin on a cellular level and enhances its own restorative and healing processes. Besides that, organic skin care is completely safe for your health and for the environment – two serious reasons to make the switch if you haven’t done it already.
