Briefly

 

Valia founders Takako Niwa and Mario Kimball believe that beauty is a result of wellness and wellness begins from the inside out. Their natural, organic products nurture through the Japanese concept of Wabisabi—harmony, naturalness and simplicity.

 

 

The Whole Story

 

“Beauty is found in the simple things in life,” says Valia co-founder and CEO Takako Niwa (she started the company with her husband, Mario Kimball). This philosophy is at the heart of Valia, a beauty company that focuses on products that follow the principles of traditional holistic Japanese remedies and treatments. Rather than using aggressive ingredients or invasive procedures Niwa and Kimball counsel gentle attentiveness and mindful living, which they facilitate with their natural and organic skincare and beauty ingestibles.

The Products

 

Inspired by co-founder/CEO Takako Niwa’s heritage, Valia embodies the Japanese concept of wabisabi, which stresses naturalness and simplicity in harmony with nature. Their skincare products use traditional Japanese ingredients such as yuzu, rice bran oil and hato mugi in tandem with current research into cellular turnover, while Valia ingestibles encourage beauty from the inside out with products such as Forskolin, a supplement that assists the body to break down stored fat cells and Anti-Aging, a Phytocermides complex that keeps the skin hydrated and plump.
