Scientific Discovery

2 darlene4 103 Lab CoatEveryday we read about amazing medical advancements that are on the horizon, but unavailable for ten years while they are being tested and developed. We often hope to experience the benefits of these advanced treatments and “cures” when we need them. The Viniferamine products have been decades in the making and they bring the promise of skin and wound treatment that was not imaginable just ten years ago.

Viniferamine is a culmination of some of the greatest advancements in science. Each ingredient’s biochemical efficacy is evaluated through extensive research of published independent peer-reviewed literature. Our quest for excellence has led us to seek ingredients that meet all United States Pharmacopeia (USP) or National Formulary (NF) standards for quality and purity.

The phytonutrients found in Viniferamine originated from the best organic farms from around the world. We find it impossible to believe that starting with plants that have been subjected to toxins could provide the level of healing we seek for the people we serve. Viniferamine marries the best of science with the best organic harvests from Africa, Asia, Europe and North America.

Scientific Ingredients in Viniferamine

Screen Shot 2014-03-14 at 10.38.27 AMEach of the ingredients used in the Viniferamine products was selected based upon its purity, efficacy and scientific worthiness. Within the selection process a few ingredients were so critical to the product’s performance, we decided to call special attention to them.

The skin is an incredibly complex organ and our very survival is reliant upon its ability to protect us. Its continuum of cell turnover is dependent on essential nutrients used in the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. The exact balance of collagen proteins and hyaluronic acid sets the stage for skin healing or conversely the skin failure.

Two of the scientific ingredients featured here have been scientifically proven to produce the levels of collagen necessary for skin restructuring while protecting the vital level of hyaluronic acid. Titrated Extract of Centella Asiatica is involved in the production of skin collagens required for tissue repair and healing. Dipotassium Glycyrrhizinate protects hyaluronic acid (cell-migration signaling molecule) by inhibiting the enzyme that destroys this vital glycosaminoglycan.

Viniferamine products create an entirely new level of skin repair, fully supported by science.

What does “vinifera” mean?

Screen Shot 2014-04-09 at 1.56.35 PMThe word “vinifera” describes a specific variety of grapevine that is native to Southeastern Europe and the Mediterranean. Viniferamine™ (Vine-uh-fair-uh-mean) represents a marriage of modern science with the knowledge and traditions of ancient Eastern and Mediterranean cultures. It is a blend of the highest quality organic European grapevine extract, organic olive leaf extract, and organic green tea extract in combination with supporting nutrients, vitamins (“Vital amines”), and amino acids that penetrate and nourish the skin. The Viniferamine™ blend has been incorporated into a system of skin and wound care products that are grounded in scientific evidence and healing, yet crafted with the elegance of the finest European treatment products.

The grape, the olive, and green tea have all played an important role in human culture and civilization for thousands of years. These plants have been revered and hold a sacred place for many ancient cultures. Now with modern science, we have been able to confirm that there is much more to these plants than simple folklore and tradition. Scientists have identified a variety of compounds in these plants that positively influence human health on a biochemical level.

Diabetes Mellitus and Your Skin

Diabetes mellitus is a disease that affects multiple organs including the skin. It interferes with wound healing, may decrease skin sensation, and can alter the mechanical forces involved in walking. Of the many organs affected by diabetes, patients can have the most important influence on the skin by detecting problems before they become severe.

Those affected by diabetes should inspect their feet daily, perhaps most easily after showering or bathing. You should pay particular attention to calluses and cracks in the skin, which should be brought to the attention of your physician. This guide points out other ways in which local skin care can help you take care care of your feet for a lifetime.

A message from the inventor of Viniferamine®

2 darlene4 103 Lab CoatThe dream of healing and improving lives has been my life’s focus for nearly three decades. With each new product I create there is a single focus . . . the patient’s wellbeing. It has been ten years since I imagined a line of products that would use the power of the olive to heal. Thousands believed in the dream and today I take special pleasure in knowing that so many have enjoyed a better life because of my Olivamine® skin care products.

So many wonderful healing advancements have occurred over the past ten years. I have discovered ancient healing secrets resting deep within the grape vine, green tea leaf, olive leaf, apple fruit, oat kernel and shea nut. I have also gained a profound respect for the importance of selecting healing ingredients that have been grown organically. I feel that it is no longer acceptable to heal with natural ingredients that have been treated with pesticides and toxins.

My new products incorporate the most scientifically advanced skin healing system available. They embrace the use of plant stem cells from an ancient apple found only in Switzerland along with the most exceptional healing nutrients found in plants. Each nutrient-rich ingredient found in Viniferamine® Skin Care products was hand-grown in small organic fields located in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America.

The Viniferamine® Skin Care line is more than a collection of the most carefully crafted products I have ever imagined in my 30-year career. Stepping out of retirement, knowing that I could and must do even better has given me the opportunity to reflect on all that is good about caring for others.
