The Parisian beauty care company Darphin was founded in 1958, and is one of the first Paris beauty institutes on record. This company’s Arovita Fluid is one of several products in their early aging prevention line. The Darphin company was founded by Pierre Darphin, and is a renowned international beauty product manufacturer. Mr. Darphin was the son of a prestigious French hairdresser, and his values have played a key role in the direction that the company took when developing their Arovita Fluid. And what are these values? The Arovita Fluid is only one of Darphin’s many products, and the company will attempt to come up with a fully customized skin care regimen for you, based on your skin type. The brand motto is “REPAIR, RESTORE, REPLENISH.”
The Darphin Arovita Fluid is usable by all skin types, and seems to work well with any other product in the Darphin family. The Arovita Fluid is designed to boost collagen production and hydrate the skin, while also protecting against potentially damaging environmental elements. The company claims that the results of proper usage of Arovita Fluid are more radiant skin and diminished fine lines. This is in keeping with the company’s “Darphin 3-D Skin Care” approach to facial care.
The active ingredients found in Arovita Fluid are: Artemia Salina Extract, Caffeine, Carrot Extract, Noni Extract, Oligopeptide, Peptide-8, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Unfortunately, a full ingredient list or other formulation details are not given.
However, the official website does give us detailed application instructions, as well as helpful diagrams. Arovita Fluid is to be applied with a gentle, upward massaging motion across the neck and face. Arovita Fluid is intended to be used in the morning and at night. The official Darphin website also recommends other products that interact well with the Arovita Fluid. They recommend that users try the Arovita C Line Response Firming Lotion in the mornings and Tangerine Aromatic Care in the evenings. The Arovita Fluid retails for $110.00 for a 50 ml. bottle.

The Bottom Line
Arovita Fluid is definitely a high-end product. While several of the ingredients listed are solid, we’d like to know more about the product’s development process before we hand over that kind of cash. For example, we know that Vitamin C is beneficial when taken internally, but the last time we checked we could find no conclusive studies on its topical effectiveness. Also, the official website seems to more or less assume that you will be using the Arovita Fluid as part of a multi-part Darphin skin care regimen, leaving us to question how effective the fluid might be on its own.
