Sicily, Italy: Anchusa and Porte Per La Vitalita

The Furtuna Skin Transformation Set features an extremely powerful plant called Anchusa azurea, wild foraged from La Furtuna Estate in Sicily. As the co-founder and CEO of this brand, I get to develop products from a treasure trove of over 80 medicinal plants day-in-and-day-out. The plants from the founder’s, Agatha Luczo’s, family farm are packed with wildly potent phytonutrients and processed through an exclusive soundbath extraction technology to deliver the highest-level of performance. As a potent active ingredient, the Anchusa turns back time on my face every time I use it (and that’s daily). 

My favorite of our Anchusa-enriched products is the Porte Per La Vitalita Face & Eye Serum. The most rewarding things about founding Furtuna Skin is knowing we are supporting a community of people who previously didn’t have enough work to thrive, and that we are preserving species of plants and animals that are nearly extinct. 

There’s even an archeological dig happening on the land, in collaboration with Italian Universities, to further explore the history of the people who lived there thousands of years ago. We’ve found some of the oldest remains ever discovered in Sicily to help reconstruct the past and inform future generations through ethnobotanical and ethnomedical discoveries.
