Who Are We?
Damiva is the women's health company that makes 100% natural products for women’s health and beauty at any age. Damiva holds patents for creating all-natural topical solutions that are designed with your long-term health in mind.
Why is this important?
Take just this one example: 85% of women in menopause have vaginal dryness that worsens over time.
So, we need a product that is effective and safe and can be used for decades since menopause can last well over 30 years.
Before Damiva’s revolutionary water-free, vaginal moisturizer, Mae, no such product existed.
To us at Damiva, it’s mind-boggling how badly the fem care and cosmetic industries have treated the American female consumer for the last 50 years. They frequently use chemicals that are predictable and cheap at the expense of customer's health.
It’s easy to spot a product full of chemicals; any product containing water must have a lot of preservatives to prevent bacterial growth. Women need fem care and beauty products that are safe, chemical free and don’t have hormone disruptors and environmental hormones. That means women need truly ALL-natural products such as Damiva’s - free of water, free of chemicals, and free of worry.
Who are the people at Damiva?
Damiva was founded by Chia Chia Sun, CEO, and her partner Gardiner Smith, President, in 2012. Both are pharmaceutical business executives with extensive research & development experience. When Chia Chia discovered that all the women's products on the drugstore shelf contain so many chemicals, 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 as a Health & Wellness expert 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’s in Damiva’s DNA that women deserve the best. This means that we develop products that are truly healthy and can be used long-term without build-up of chemicals and associated toxicity such as immune suppression and hormone disruption. We are proud of our products developed by women, for women, with women’s needs in mind.
