Back to the Start with:
Corpa Flora and Viva Organics
For many the new year brings the promise of a new start; the beginning of new opportunities and a chance to start over. All those new beginnings and promises can feel like a lot of pressure, but we at Portia-Ella are here to remind you to take a deep breath—going back to the start doesn’t have to be intimidating. When you are equipped with knowledge and a team of supporters guiding you every step of the way, your goals suddenly seem within reach.
Much like New Years Resolutions, skincare can feel like a promise you make to yourself but don’t follow through with. We at Portia-Ella are here to support you, so you can feel confident in a routine that takes your goals and lifestyle into consideration. A simple routine that takes an individualized approach to address your needs will suit you better than a 14 step routine created for someone else!
The two lines that we retail that truly embody this approach are Corpa Flora and Viva Organics—science meets simplicity and beauty in these botanically based routines. Created with high quality organic ingredients and a focus on results, you are certain to have the product that meets your skin health needs.

Viva Organics Brightening C Serum
15ml - Ideal for all skin types
Going back to the start doesn’t mean starting with a blank slate, but we don’t have to carry everything with us. Viva’s Brightening C Serum helps to combat hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and sunspots while also supporting collagen production.
Vitamin C is critical for our body and plays an important role in maintaining healthy, resilient skin. While young skin is full of vitamin C, aging skin naturally loses this nutrient over time. Other factors like exposure to UV light, pollutants and cigarette smoke compound the decline of vitamin C, contributing to aging of skin.
The good news is that you can replenish your skin’s vitamin C levels with rosehip oil, sweet almond oil, evening primrose oil, and vitamin e, this serum helps to combat serious dark areas of the skin and even reverse skin damage.
