Our story

With over 20 years of industry experience, Stacy Paoa has witnessed the profound connection between skincare and nature. Inspired by her husband’s Hawaiian heritage and their travels throughout the Pacific, she recognized the power of raw, natural ingredients deeply rooted in Polynesian culture.

Driven by her passion for quality skincare and armed with extensive education, Stacy was determined to create a skincare line that delivers results. Aware of the industry’s tendency for false claims, she sought scientific proof to back her formulations. Collaborating with Dr. Nial Wheate, a respected doctor of medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry, Stacy presented these powerful botanicals. The scientific findings not only confirmed her convictions but also shed light on the remarkable skincare benefits these botanicals possess.

Drawing from her wealth of knowledge and experience, Stacy meticulously selected and bottled exotic botanicals found throughout Polynesia. The result is Vaihea, a brand that offers clean beauty in the comfort of one’s home, where nature’s perfect ingredients are celebrated.
