November Newsletter

newsletter-november-2018

Hello and welcome to the November newsletter where, once again, we talk about skincare wardrobes as we celebrate the launch of a new skincare brand, which virtually sold out when we released it to the VH Addicts two weeks ago. We also launch the fourth product in the Ful.Vic.Health series and we do the feedback on the shampoo, conditioner and mist, which kind of blew us away.

Additionally we launch ilapet, which we believe are ‘the perfect remedies for peaceful pooches’ and there are a few treats somewhere below. Shabir takes an in-depth look at joint supplements and he also writes about Moringa Powder. We have a new product from RoadScents, which I love and as ever we have this month’s feature articles, one of which may be a touch controversial, but never mind that, we tell it as it is. Always have, always will. Right, it’s another long one, so let’s do it: Read More…

August Newsletter

Hello and welcome to the August newsletter where we talk about wardrobes; skincare wardrobes and supplement wardrobes, with a light touch on fashion wardrobes (full blame on a certain fashion director). With the heat still on (as I’m writing this), we throw the focus on holiday products, although quite honestly we need most of these without even jumping on a plane to seek the sun. It has sought us.

We take a further look at Garden of Wisdom (GoW), the resurrection of a product, which is no longer in product heaven and if you don’t mind, I am also going to talk about my hair for a moment or two. Shabir makes an appearance (one of many) with a skincare regimen that is helping so many of you and there are a few treats sprinkled throughout, so please read carefully, we don’t want you to miss out. Let’s do it: Read More…

May Newsletter

Hello and welcome to the May newsletter where we have rather a lot to get through including the launch of four new brands, several new and exciting products, news, feedback and this month’s features from the girls. The girls! And then we have Shabir who has formulated his own new product, which will appear somewhere in the midst of everything.

That said, we are going to begin with two of the new brands. The entire ethos of VH has always been to help make a difference to each of you with cutting-edge and pioneering products. When that encompasses a far wider audience and an enablement to address fundamental and profound health concerns, it becomes something more. Far more. Let’s do it. Read More…

Sheald Recovery Balm – The Ultimate Skin Saviour

  • Sheald Recovery Balm

    The Ultimate Skin Saviour

    Woken up to a complete sensitivity breakout? “Streamline your beauty regime to prevent further aggravation and avoid products with aggressive actives”, says Tom Ogden, European business manager at Alpha-H. That means retinol, glycolic acid and vitamin C-based products are a no-no, but try this balm instead. Originally formulated for use after plastic surgery, it’s rich in hydrating hyaluronic acid, as well as glycerin for repair and oat kernels to reduce redness.

Gill Meets Bryan Johns of Innovative Skincare

bryan-meets1

Bryan Johns serves as co-founder, President and CEO of Science of Skincare and Innovative Skincare and currently also serves on the President’s Council for the National Breast Cancer Coalition.

After serving as the Director of Skincare for the Kronos Group, one of the world’s premier anti-ageing research and development facilities, you co-founded Innovative Skincare with Alec Call. What was the inspiration?

When we founded Innovative Skincare in 2002, we were inspired to create products that would simply help improve people’s lives. We have never been a company that is “bottom line” driven; rather we measure the successes we find in helping to positively impact humanity.

Coming from a scientific background and as one of the founding members of The Kronos Institute, it was imperative that I familiarize myself with the cosmetic and cosmeceutical industry as it existed. In order to assess product performance standards and ethics, we reverse-engineered hundreds of skincare products on the market to measure the levels of “claimed” levels of active ingredients. We discovered that only a very small percentage of skincare products we tested actually contained what they claimed.
