There are face oils powered by nourishing plants, and then there is Vintner’s Daughter. The most talked about beauty brand of the last decade was launched by third-generation Napa Valley winemaker April Gargiulo in 2014. April sought to create a singular product that could replace several steps in a skin care routine, using plants to deliver an ideal ratio of phytonutrients for radiance, clarity and brightness. Its Active Botanical Serum is the result of work with conscious growers from around the world, and the use of 22 botanicals. In 2019, it followed with an equally astonishing second product, Active Treatment Essence, which uses fermented botanicals, plant stem cells and hyaluronic acid to gently exfoliate and hydrate. A few drops of one, a few drops of the other, and a powerful skincare ritual is born.
“Vintner’s Daughter has become one of those brands that people ask me about all the time. They want to know if it lives up to the hype and the answer I always give them is absolutely yes.” - Jamie Rosen, Wellbeing Editor
