Who Are We?
Damiva is the women's health company that makes 100% natural products for women’s health and beauty at for any age, and holds the patents for making all-natural topicals.
Why is this important?
Just one example: 85% of women in menopause have vaginal dryness, and that dryness worsens over time. A product that helps is desperately needed.
So - which product that is both, effective and safe, can women use for the next 30 plus years (that’s how long women will stay in menopause)?
Before Damiva’s MAE, no such product existed.
It is mind boggling how badly the fem care and cosmetic industry has treated the female consumer in the USA for the last 50 years. They used chemicals that are predictable and cheap - but the problem is: they are toxic.
Women need femcare and beauty products that are safe, chemical free and free of hormone disruptors and environmental hormones. That means women need truly ALL-natural products.
Who are the people at Damiva?
Damiva was founded by Chia Chia Sun, CEO, and her partner Gardiner Smith, President, in 2012. Both have been pharmaceutical business executives and have extensive research & development experience. When Chia Chia discovered that all the women's products on the drugstore shelf contain many chemicals in 2012, she and Gardiner decided they would remedy the situation.
Annette Garcea is Damiva’s lead for health and wellness with extensive background in women’s health, hormones, diet, yoga and meditation. Annette joined Damiva both with a role for the company and as co-owner in 2020.
Chia Chia, Gardiner, and Annette are unified in their conviction, passion and devotion to making women’s lives better naturally.
What are Damiva’s Values and Principles?
It is in Damiva’s DNA that women deserve the best. This means products that are truly ALL-natural and chemical-free because chemicals are hormone disruptors; and a women’s hormonal system is a delicate system in constant flux. Products developed by women, for women, with women’s needs in mind.
