We think around all marketing and branding pathways, as well as the core philosophy of our clients’ brands.

Our clients tell us that one of our points of difference from other manufacturers is our personalized and attentive customer service. Exceptional customer service does not just start and stop with our Account Executives on the front lines, the on-going positive culture at CoValence involves all staff members, no matter which department they work, to effectively listen, communicate, encourage, educate, and strategize with the goal of facilitating progress and success for our clients.


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.
