Overview of VMV Hypoallergenics
VMV Hypoallergenics was established in 1979 and was one of the first skin care brands to rate products based on hypoallergenicity. This rating system is based on the top 76 allergens frequently found in other cosmetics, which may cause allergic reactions, irritation and swelling. The majority of VMV Hypoallergenics products claim to not contain these allergens, and using the specialized rating system therefore benefits the company greatly in marketing efforts. The rating system is clearly displayed on their packaging as well as the product listings contained on the VMV Hypoallergenics website.
Skin Care Items at VMV Hypoallergenics
The VMV Hypoallergenics product line includes items for bath and body, skincare, makeup, and sun protection for men and women. The Company’s focus is on basic daily care, beauty and advanced protective and therapeutic care. The VMV Hypoallergenics website includes a Skintelligencenter section dedicated to areas of skin concern and lists over 20 different ailments and product recommendations to address them. But unfortunately, VMV Hypoallergenics reviews are not available on the Company website.
The Company approaches skin care from both an aesthetic and health perspective. Healthy skin plays a key role in your body’s temperature control function, prevents infection and protects from harmful elements. To simplify skin maintenance, VMV Hypoallergenics sells some products in skin care kits; like their Superskin Care Bundle, which includes a mild cleansing scrub, a skin toner and a moisturizer, which contains an ingredient called Monolaurin. In addition to keeping your skin soft and hydrated, the Monolaurin in the moisturizer is also a gentle anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent, which can help those with acne.
VMV Hypoallergenics also provides product options for different skin types. For example, their make up remover comes in oil and a water-based version. Both options have hydrating glycerin to moisturize and green tea antioxidants to reduce inflammation and enhance sun protection. The product range is so extensive that you may need help narrowing down your selections, and use VMV Hypoallergenics on-line tools to help you.
One such tool, for example, is a five-question Quiz that helps identify your skin type. But if you need advice on how to address a specific skin condition you can complete their Skinvestment Plan questionnaire. A VMV Hypoallergenics skin specialist will review your answers and provide an action plan and skin regime for preventative care. However, keep in mind that these specialists are not necessarily doctors, so it may be beneficial to double check any suggestions with your dermatologist.
