Our Active Ingredients


Nature, the best chemist

Plants live quietly among us yet are quite advanced in certain ways.  They produce their own nutrients, and can adapt to their ecosystems by developing molecular defense systems.  Secondary metabolites, are crucial to this defense system, and help plants interact with their environment, communicate among themselves, attract pollinators and offer protection from dangerous elements.

These protective plant molecules are often polyphenols, which also have beneficial bioactive properties for humans. Vinésime's botanical scientists took generations of botanical knowledge and transferred that knowledge to skin care.  If plants have the ability to adapt to harmful environmental how can we apply that knowledge to skin care?
