The word 'Virga' is Latin for 'a green twig', or a branch. It connotes something new, fresh, always growing; a living and flourishing part of a deeply rooted whole. In the spirit of this, nature's universal principle, it was chosen as the name of our unique plant-based skincare line.
The Virga Difference

Chinese Herbology is dynamic, balancing and symbiotic. The ideal balance of mind, body and spirit is the epitome of health in Eastern tradition.
