Active Treatment Essence
The Active Treatment Essence is a deeply hydrating formula that delivers radiance and renewal to all skin.
At the heart of this essential hydration step is the proprietary Phyto Radiance Infusion, a 21-day process that begins with nutrient-rich, whole plants and, over the course of three weeks, gently infuses their powerful nourishment into an aqueous base.
Amplifying the infusion is their Phyto Ferment, a two-week fermentation process that produces beneficial probiotics and increases nutrient absorption.
The complex formula for the Essence deeply hydrates, brightens, illuminates, renews, and revitalizes the complexion, restoring balance and evening tone and texture to noticeably improve the overall appearance of skin.
With 70+ water-soluble nutrients and plant actives, including stabilized vitamin C, B vitamins, micro and mini hyaluronic acid, probiotics, micro-exfoliators, plant stem cells, microalgae and superfoods, Active Treatment Essence offers multifaceted performance and supports the efficacy of subsequent products, including Active Botanical Serum.
It can replace your acid exfoliator, toner, hydrating serum and serum treatments (in case of acne and hyperpigmentation).
Hydrates and plumps with micro and mini hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, coconut water, apple pectin and lactic acid
Brightens and minimizes the appearance of dark spots and discoloration using stabilized vitamin C, helichrysum, niacinamide, and dandelion to even out and illuminate the complexion.
Exfoliates and smooths with gentle, micro-exfoliating plant acids and enzymes to slough off dead skin cells daily, promoting cellular renewal and clear pores.
Balances and clarifies the complexion by restoring vital hydration to support blemish-prone skin and delivering multi-tasking, balancing adaptogens.
Fortifies the complexion with free-radical fighting antioxidants, as well as probiotics, alfalfa, marine microalgae, and a full suite of B vitamins to benefit the skin barrier.
Renews and revitalizes the skin with antioxidant vitamin C and plant stem cells
How to use
FOR: All skin including blemish-prone, sensitive, dehydrated, dull and/or mature skin
Apply Active Treatment Essence to dry skin after cleansing.
Dispense one-third of a dropper into the palm of your hand.
Press the Essence into the face for 5-10 seconds.
Follow with Active Botanical Serum while the skin is still damp.
The Active Treatment Essence is 100% natural and has a kombucha/vinegar-like smell due to the fermentation process.
After application, it goes away in seconds.
While a regular cosmetic product is made from scratch in a process that takes between 3 to 6 hours, Vintner’s Daughter’s Phyto Radiance Infusion Process is all about adding whole plants and infusing them for up to 21 days.
However, the formulation of this Essence requires two additional weeks in order to complete the fermentation process.
The Active Treatment Essence takes more than 5 weeks to be made.
The “essence”, in popular terms, is actually miracle water that helps to prep your skin and infuse it with hydration.
April, the founder of Vintner’s Daughter, loves to use the Essence around her eyes, due to the brightening effect.
She also recommends diluting it with a little bit of water for those who have extra sensitive skin types, or to introduce it in your night routine.

Meet the founder: April Gargiulo
Vintner's Daughter was born as a result of April Gargiulo's experience and high standards, inspired by the world of great winemakers.
Her family was highly focused on creating some of the greatest wines in the world.
Today, that same philosophy guides Vintner’s Daughter’s values.
When her daughter Kate was born, April began reading labels, identifying risky and unnecessary ingredients, leaving her in awe for something better, different, and exquisite.
Therefore, there are no quick cuts when it comes to their formulation, and this is part of their conceptual core that led into creating this brand.
The formulation process is lengthy and it’s referred to as "the speed of quality".
Vintner's Daughter uses whole plants, and the same rigorous sourcing and formulation standards as the leading winemakers, which is why Active Treatment Essence and Active Botanical Serum have set new performance, quality, and safety milestones.
This level of excellence requires dedication to the craft, as well as a lot of time and resources.
There are no shortcuts when developing the greatest of anything.

Better Packaging meaning their sustainable packaging initiatives include boxes manufactured from 80 percent post-consumer recycled materials or FSC certified board, printing with eco-friendly ink, and utilizing recyclable glass bottles exclusively;
Testing Without Harm means the globally acclaimed Leaping Bunny Program has verified them as cruelty-free;
