Our Story

A Hike, a Hatchery and Hands

It Begins With Our Founder

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.

Hear From Our Founder

A Revolutionary Skincare Discovery

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 post-hatching water. Restorsea’s patented and unique product technology is anchored by an enzyme salmon fry release at the time of hatching. This enzyme dissolves the egg shell membrane, creates an opening and enables the salmon fry to swim out of the opening unharmed.

Why It Works

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. Why? 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.
