Treat yourself to Avec, the Currumbin Valley-based skincare that uses homegrown botanicals

There's a lot of fancy scientific terms that get bandied about in the skincare world, but often we find that sometimes the simpler the better. This is the ethos of Avec, a brand-new company bringing us botanical skincare from the heart of Currumbin.


In the spirit of simplicity, Avec’s range contains just one product – its Bioactive Nutrient Serum. The idea is that it is a single solution that contains a bunch of powerhouse ingredients (fourteen, to be exact) that’s targeted to nourish fine lines, sooth acne, even skin tone and relieve dullness. With all of the ingredients sourced from small Australian organic farms, you can treat your skin while knowing that the product is sustainably sourced and ethically grown. Each bottle contains a bunch of honest-to-goodness botanicals such as jojoba oil, rose otto, lemon myrtle, calendula, lemon balm and chamomile.
In an unusual twist for the beauty industry, the ingredients for Avec’s serum are exclusively grown for the brand to ensure that they are at the peak of their freshness. The small batch brand has strict controls over production quantities too, meaning that they don’t sit in warehouses losing nutritional value. Plus, you can feel good for helping others while nourishing yourself – this all-female company donates a percentage of sales to a female-focused charity to help women in need. Avec is currently supporting Safe Steps – a support service for anyone in Victoria who’s experiencing family violence.
