Science and daily life
should always be connected



AWvi was born from a collective with globally renowned expertise in health, wellness, and beauty. They began by asking ‘what if’?

→ What if we stopped viewing science as a separate realm—the domain of ivory towers, lab coats, and dense findings confined to academic journals—and instead reestablished its vital link to daily life, recognizing the imperative for humans to adapt within an ever-changing environment?

→ What if we embraced a holistic approach to health rooted in scientific rigour, through a proactive methodology that harnesses the remarkable power of bodies and minds?

→ What if we could develop potentiated and evidence-based methods, taking into account the complexity of human biology and chemistry, to effectively address a wide range of concerns, instead of relying on standalone products with specific claims?

→ What if we could make these methods a pleasurable part of your day rather than another obligation or mindless routine?

AWvi was born of observation and wonder, of asking questions and seeking answers, of testing and iterating. This is the virtuous circle of the scientific method—applied to help you feel better, look better, and live better, every day1.

AWvi is in and of Italy, a country where art and science not only coexist but come together. These strong roots allow us to approach well-being with both precision and pleasure.

To illuminate how extraordinary scientific discoveries and developments can enhance every aspect of our well-being, from skin and hair health to sleep quality, physical performance and recovery, mood, and cognitive function.

As the Roman numeral for six, vi references the interconnected elements of health and wellbeing at the heart of the brand.

The scope and ambition of our mission sets us apart. It is rooted in the paradigm shift of functional medicine, which is changing how we view health. Functional medicine considers the body as an ecosystem, a complex web of interconnected networks and systems that regulate biological functioning2. It recognizes that when these systems are out of balance, dysfunction and disease can occur. Functional medicine takes a comprehensive and proactive approach to health and well-being by considering genetic and biochemical factors in conjunction with lifestyle and environmental factors. It unites Western and Eastern approaches, treatment and prevention, symptoms and systems, as well as cutting-edge science and ancient wisdom3.

We embark on this journey with skincare. Your skin, more than a shield and your largest organ, is integral to your identity, influential in your social interactions, and a reflection of your overall health.

2 The functional medicine model is individualised, person-centred, and science-based.

3 At AWvi, we embrace a circular ‘Inside Out’ approach to healthier bodies and minds, through truly scientific solutions that work at the source to provide improvements that last.

'Skin health operates on a two-way axis, shaped by internal factors such as genetics and metabolism, as well as external influences like lifestyle and environment. The Skin Method integrates these elements within a 'genome-microbiome-exposome' framework, taking into account the crucial interplay between gut and skin microbiomes. Engineered with next-generation active ingredients that work synergistically—from the inside-out and the outside-in—it combats skin ageing while promoting overall skin health.'

Health & Wellness strategy at AWvi

Embracing a multi-level strategy and holistic frameworks, we're reshaping skincare methodology. Our distinct approach supports overall skin health while offering a wide array of specific benefits.


Skin ageing is a multifaceted process affected by both internal and external factors. Genetics, hormones, and cellular metabolism contribute to physiological changes like decreased collagen production, reduced lipid levels, epidermal thinning, and the loss of subcutaneous fat. Additionally, lifestyle and environmental factors such as diet, sleep, stress level, physical activity, pollution, and sun exposure play a crucial role. These factors manifest in the skin as dryness, wrinkles, and a change in facial structure.


One groundbreaking discovery in skincare science underscores the vital role of microbiomes—the microbial communities present in both the gut and the skin. The balance of these microbiomes is strongly influenced by various factors and is crucial for both combating skin ageing and promoting overall skin health. The relationship between gut and skin is facilitated through the circulatory system, creating what is often referred to as the 'gut-skin axis'. This axis enables the gut to influence an anti-inflammatory environment in the skin via the bloodstream, thereby optimising interactions with the resident skin microbiome.


At the core of The Skin Method is the concept of the skin interactome, which integrates the 'genome-microbiome-exposome'. This holistic framework provides a comprehensive view of all the factors contributing to skin ageing and health, informing AWvi's approach to product formulation. With a focus on skin microbiome combined with next-generation active ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Triglycerides, and Active Waters, The Skin Method offers a truly scientific and comprehensive approach to fight the underlying causes of skin ageing and promote skin health.



Think of it this way: things happening inside us, and things around us, together create responses in our body and feelings. These responses play a big part in how healthy we feel and how good we feel about life. It's like an ongoing conversation between us and everything around us.

Our health and well-being are dynamically shaped by the interplay of biological factors, lifestyle choices, and environmental influences.

The dynamic interplay among these factors lays the foundation of our health and well-being. It's a complex system where each component influences and is influenced by the others. Acknowledging this complexity is the first step towards fostering better health outcomes and promoting comprehensive well-being.



We believe meaningful change happens only when we look at the complete picture - the whole system - and act on multiple fronts.

Reflect on the world as we knew it a few decades ago. Now, look around. Notice how our environment and the way we live have changed, and the pace of that change.

Often, we imagine that our biology keeps pace with our rapidly advancing technology and intellect. But biology isn't a simple equation, like a predictable chemical reaction where A plus B always equals C. It's an intricate dance choreographed by millennia of evolution, shaping our behavior and needs in complex ways.

While chemistry plays a crucial role in our health, it's not the sole actor on the stage. Our biology, environment, and lifestyle all contribute to the intricate performance that shapes our overall health.

At AWvi, we appreciate this complex interplay. Our guiding principle is rooted in the philosophy of holistic functional medicine, which seeks to understand and address the underlying causes of health issues, not just treat symptoms.

While we can't alter our innate biological traits, pause time, or completely control our environment, we can proactively manage our health. We can adapt our lifestyle, protect ourselves, and navigate the external factors that affect our health and emotional wellbeing.

Think of it like building a house. A sturdy foundation is key to its stability and longevity. Likewise, our daily habits and practices form the solid base of our health, supporting our overall wellbeing.

At AWvi, we merge the precision of science with your everyday life. Guided by the principles of functional medicine and the Triad of Life - biology, lifestyle, and environment - we transform complex scientific findings into actionable health and wellness improvement strategies.

Aspiring to be the ultimate wellness brand, AWvi begins this journey with a focus on skincare.

Your skin, more than a shield and your largest organ, is integral to your identity, influential in your social interactions, a reflection of your overall health and a condition to your well-being.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum

Where does it come from?

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.
