OUR FOUNDER STORY…

A BEAUTIFUL INTEGRATION

Dr. Ritu Chopra’s practice of aesthetic medicine led to a vision for becoming a resource for integrative beauty. But it took one of his patients to help his vision become a reality.

Shortly after Lori Bush’s retirement from her acclaimed beauty industry career, a diagnosis of breast cancer led to a newfound respect for the importance of mindfulness in both wellness and beauty.

As the doctor-patient relationship developed, so did a mutual recognition of a major gap in the beauty industry.

Together, Dr. Chopra and Lori founded Solvasa so that everybody has the resources and can benefit from the practice of integrative and mindful beauty.
