Formulator Andre Borak Gr.Dr.TCM
Divine Aqua Vitae was born from 20+ years of experience in the natural health and beauty industry. Formulator and founder Andre Borak began his journey as a doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), operating a clinical practice for over 10 years. He then transitioned into the natural health industry, focusing on the sales and distribution of natural health supplements and vitamins.
Shortly after the birth of his youngest daughter, Andre suffered a head injury from a car crash that motivated him to begin researching natural healing minerals and elements for the brain to help with recovery from traumatic brain injury (TBI). Through this research, Andre found many parallels between brain cell regeneration and skin cell regeneration.
As a result, Andre found his way back to his original passion, TCM and acupressure treatments. Over time, Andre began to notice more and more of his clients were women experiencing frustration over the changes in their skin, due to health, life changes, and stress. Andre started specializing in anti-aging facial treatments, and applied his knowledge of brain health to develop a precious mineral facial elixir for clients.
The feedback from his treatments was overwhelmingly positive. When clients began asking for bottles of the treatment products to purchase for home use, Andre realized the magnitude of what he had formulated. He was sparked by the opportunity to commercialize the product to help more people reach their skincare goals with his innovative and incredibly effective formulations.
Since the launch of Divine Aqua Vitae, Andre has continued his education and research in the area of natural product chemistry and formulations to enrich all of the products he creates. He combines his Chinese medicine herbal background and an alchemical mindset into elixirs and serums, with an eye on expanding to further offer products that optimize health and wellness.
Beside Andre is Angela, Divine Aqua Vita Operations Manager and mother, daughter, educator, and wife to Andre. As a full-time teacher and full-time mom - after Andre’s car accident, Angela took on the bulk of managing their family life. After reaching the age of forty, juggling the demands of motherhood, career, aging parents, relationships, and attempting to tease out those ever-precious moments of self-care, life started taking a toll and she noticed progressive changes in her skin - what she liked to call “mom-face” - and it became clear her skin routine from her 20s and 30s wasn’t cutting it anymore. Hormonal imbalances, fatigue, and the stresses of life were showing up as acne and dry parched skin that was overall tired-looking and dull.
Angela became a first-hand user of Andre’s product line, fell in love, and had a major boost in confidence. The products were integral in helping her skin regain a more toned and even complexion, with the added benefits of an energetic boost with the ‘high vibe’ frequency infused products.
Together as a family-run company with their children, Andre and Angela have grown Divine Aqua Vitae’s presence into 30 stores across Western Canada and continue to expand into new markets, including internationally to Vietnam, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
