Aypa is a handmade luxury skincare brand that discovers the power of ancient secret plants organically grown in Incan lands to feed the skin from the outside in. Made with unique sustainably superfood ingredients ecologically harvested in Peru and made in Spain.
In the heart of the Peruvian Andes, surrounded by vibrant mountains and mystical lands, lies the most valuable wellness secret of the ancient Incan culture: the healing power of native plants that organically grow in the Earth.
Aypa, meaning Earth in indigenous Quechua language, stands for the respect and the values the Andean Incan culture hold towards Nature. For the Andean people, the Earth is considered their Mother, sacred and their source of life.
In harmony with the Earth, the Incas created an organic and ecological farming system by respecting seasonality. Thanks to this respect for nature, the land in Peru has one of the richest biodiversity on the planet. Extremely diverse climatic zones in the region have harboured the organic growth of emblematic plants and exotic botanical species that possess extraordinary healthy properties, going from the Pacific coast through the high Andes Mountains and reaching the lush Amazon rainforest.
At Aypa, they celebrate the richness of this land by developing natural skincare formulated with native precious organic ingredients whilst maintaining the utmost respect for the environment.
Mirella Crovetto, Founder of Aypa, worked for international cosmetic companies but became inspired to develop a skincare brand with products that carry the Andean essence. The journey started in 2009. Passionate for a healthy lifestyle, Mirella travelled to the core of the Andes in her native Peru to join indigenous communities and learn from their heritage and daily routine about their ecological philosophy of life and relationship with Nature, their insight about sacred plants and their therapeutic healing techniques.
