Linda Walker


Linda Walker started CoValence from two ideas; one, that a personal fascination with skin care products and ingredients could possibly be translated into a business, second, that while natural botanicals and biological ingredients were standard components in skin care back in the late ’80s, there was next to no data on what made some ingredients work much better than others to achieve therapeutic results.

Linda and CoValence have developed thousands of distinctive Cosmeceutical, Dermocosmetic and OTC products, many of which are distributed by some of the most prominent and trusted brands in the industry.
