Helwé is a range of natural cosmetics products founded by Josiane Riachi. The range bears the name of a Lebanese village by the Mediterranean Sea.
Josiane Riachi is a Doctor of Pharmacy and graduate of the University of Paris V René Descartes. In the early 1990s, she defended a dissertation on the topic of retinoic acid and its effects on skin aging. A few years later, she settled back in her home country, Lebanon, where she changed her career path and founded her own company, Volver, a travel agency dedicated to culture, art and the discovery of the world.
Even though she worked in a different industry for years, Josiane remained interested in cosmetics and advancements in the field of dermatology to better take care of her own skin.
