Pevonia

The name Pevonia stems from Greek mythology. Legend has it that the gods’ physician, Paion, discovered peonia – exquisite flowers filled with a magical essence. Once extracted, its purity and power could miraculously cure a number of ills. And so the legend grew.

Pevonia has earned a celebrated reputation as the world’s leading face, body and spa care line, available only through highly trained, qualified professionals including The Beauty House in Jersey, Channel Islands.
