MD for Moms Radio | Patricia Pao | Restorsea | August 17th 2016

Photo attribution: Every Wednesday 1pm (ET) on the BBM Global Network and TuneIn Radio. Listen live or to archived shows at any time by clicking the link. On Wednesday August 17th, 2016, at 1pm, I'll be interviewing Patricia Pao of Restorsea about her incredible skin care line and why using chemical free products is so crucial for health. We will also discuss how Patti started Restorsea and her suggestions for anyone who similarly has an idea and wants to build a brand and start their own company. Learn more about my guest, Patricia Pao: Patti boasts an illustrious beauty background, having launched over 400 products for lauded brands such as Avon, Elizabeth Arden, Guerlain and Peter Thomas Roth. She has been at the forefront of revolutionary product developments, having recognized the power of glycolic acid and acquiring the exclusive rights to commercialize it before most beauty insiders discovered its benefits. A true pioneer in skincare, Patti recognized an unmet consumer need for gentler anti-aging products that deliver real results. She did so in an unlikely manner. Reluctantly participating in a hike through the pure fjords of western Norway, Patti landed herself on a tour of the country's largest salmon hatchery. She became transfixed by the hatchery workers' hands; while their faces betrayed their true ages, their hands looked much younger. Because the workers' hands were consistently submerged in water, Patti knew where to look for their secret. It was hidden in the water. Restorsea's revolutionary, proprietary Vibransea™ complex is anchored by Aquabeautine XL®, a natural enzyme salmon release into the water at birth enabling them to safely emerge from their eggshells. In skincare, the enzyme's remarkable properties similarly work to selectively exfoliate only dead skin cells, allowing living ones to flourish. It is regular exposure to the enzyme that imbued the workers’ hands with such a youthful appearance. Patti realized the opportunity to create an anti-aging skincare line better than anything she had created before. By dissolving only dead skin, Aquabeautine XL® provides the same benefits as other leading anti-aging products, without the harsh side effects. Patti quickly secured the exclusive global rights to use the enzyme in all of Restorsea's products. Patti received her MBA from the Harvard Business School and her undergraduate degree from UC Berkeley, where she graduated summa cum laude. She currently lives in New York City, where she enjoys a hike-free life and wishes everyone great and glowing skin.
