Entrepreneurship and Business








NuVsio is an all-natural skincare line dedicated to restoring, repairing, protecting and enhancing the skin’s microbiome. Launched in 2011, this brand was built upon Dr. Elena Brei’s research during her doctoral studies in Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry at the University of Toronto. Her specialty in precious minerals and water purification made her realize that this process can apply to skincare as well. As someone who has also suffered from extensive acne and dermatitis, she made it her mission to find a solution with the knowledge at her disposal.

Many people don’t realize it, but microbiome biodiversity is paramount to creating the right environment for our skin to thrive. Without it, a damaged microbiome leads to many common skin concerns such as inflammation, rosacea, acne, dermatitis, eczema, and other unhealthy skin conditions.

With an emphasis on the fact that your microbiome is unique to you, NuVsio’s products are powered by Mineral Bloom Technology. Derived from nature, Dr. Brei’s team selects the most effective minerals and supercharges them so that they are activated already when added to the formulation to reap the ingredients’ maximum benefits.
