Wearable skincare business Narvvi announces pre-seed investment
Narvvi, a young company that offers what it calls “wearable skincare”, has attracted a £0.5 million pre-seed investment.
The firm is this week launching a “luxury curated collection of ready-to-wear and sleepwear staples combined with advanced skincare” and will debut internationally with an initial focus on its domestic UK market.
It’s being backed by investors behind BBRC (Brett Blundy Retail Capital).
Designed in London “and taking influence from the French Riviera”, it “harnesses founder Leah Uka’s expertise, working as a facialist specialising in anti-ageing and acne treatments. Every accessory is enriched with advanced skincare ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Marine Collagen Peptides and Argan Oil”.
It’s using micelle technology, with low-weight capsules of advanced skincare embedded into the fibres. During wear, concentrated skincare formulations “are slowly activated and released into the skin of the user, optimising skin hydration… with visible results from the first wear”.
The pieces are made of “22 Momme Pure Mulberry silk” and the collection launches with eight core ready-to-wear styles, as well as a collection of silk sleepwear accessories. Each garment is claimed to continually deliver skincare benefits for anywhere between one and two years.
Price range between £40 and £190.
