Darya Hope (Dh) Launches Skin Care Line With Groundbreaking Human Stem Cell-derived Technology To Future-Proof Skin

The first-of-its-kind brand combines potent marine ingredients with cutting-edge science to address and prevent signs of ageing by stimulating stem cells to regenerate and repair

 Darya Hope (Dh), a science-led skin care brand powered by the planet, debuted today with its hero product, the Youth Elixir Stem Cell Serum. Originally developed as a therapy for severe skin trauma, such as burns, this groundbreaking serum features Cell Turnover Technology Complex (CTT Complex)™–– a proprietary technology that utilises the power of adult human stem cell-derived growth factors to target the areas where repair is needed. This technology ensures skin can heal, regenerate, and become the best version of itself while helping to prevent future signs of ageing. In a 30-day clinical trial, 96% of participants agreed they saw a dramatic improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, 94% agreed they saw a noticeable improvement in skin texture, and 98% agreed they saw a visible reduction in dark spots.


Given that clean skin is the route to healthy skin, today’s launch also includes a Triple Cleanse System comprised of a Sea Oak Daily Oil Cleanser, a Sea Fennel Daily Gel Cleanser, and a Volcanic Mineral Daily Face Polish to remove dirt, makeup, and impurities while optimising skin, balancing its pH, and creating the perfect canvas for the Youth Elixir Stem Cell Serum.

Founded by Swedish, Persian, and American entrepreneur and environmentalist, Darya Hope Pishevar and formulated by Anton-Philip Battiade, a naturopathic doctor, consultant, educator, stem cell researcher, and expert on holistic and integrative medicine, the brand brings to life Pishevar’s desire to achieve more resilient skin to slow down the ageing process without using ingredients and packaging that negatively impact the planet.  Darya Hope adheres to a strict no toxic ingredient policy and uses recyclable boxes and glass, post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics, and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified paper. Its marine extracts are sourced from companies committed to ethical, sustainable practices and handcrafted by Battiade’s team in small batches to minimise overproduction and waste.  Building on Pishevar’s philanthropic priorities, $1 from every Darya Hope product sold goes toward SeaLegacy, whose mission is to create healthy and abundant oceans. The brand is also a Founding Member of SeaLegacy’s Good Ocean, a community of aligned businesses guided by a commitment to respond quickly to the urgent need for systemic change in consumer habits.

As the proud founder of Darya Hope, I wanted to create a brand that would advance the science and technology behind product formulation and challenge the standards of performance and efficacy, says Darya Hope Pishevar, founder and CEO, Darya Hope. Equally important was a sustainable and ethical business that people would feel good about spending their money with and supporting. By merging my vision with Philip’s deep knowledge of the skin’s regenerative capabilities, his expertise on natural and sustainable ingredients, and understanding of what differentiates a luxury product, we’ve created a skin care range unlike anything on the market.
