About the Founder
Andrea Vlahovich is a sustainability and organic food advocate who is passionate about reversing the effects of climate change.
She studied at the University of Ottawa, City University of Hong Kong, and Queens' University. Her career started off in labour relations and then took a turn when she left to work for a Canadian organic food startup.
In 2020, Andrea's work in the organic community led her to a group of sustainable agriculturalists in Peru who work on Rainforest restoration initiatives. This is when she discovered the locally known Aguaje fruit, which has beneficial properties for the skin and is critical to the ecological health of the Amazon Rainforest.
Sustainability, transparency and authenticity are her core values and these values are reflected in Imaya Beauty.
