 Active Treatment Essence

Active Treatment Essence

The second-ever product from the cult skin phenomenon that is Vintner’s Daughter is as wildly original as the first—and has the power to really multiply your results. The essence is made with water-soluble nutrients, whereas the serums are oil-soluble, so it delivers on different pathways into your skin—think of it as the yin to the bestselling serum’s yang. Made with thirty-plus active botanicals, each meticulously distilled from the whole plant over a five-week process to maintain potency, then blended with water-soluble vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, microalgae, gluconolactone, lactic acid, and apple cider vinegar, as well as pre- and probiotics into a hydrating, toning, mildly exfoliating treatment for skin. It’s transformative on its own, but we’ve seen amazing changes in our skin—it works for every skin type—when we combine it in a routine with the Active Botanical Serum.

April Gargiulo’s foray into skin care started simply enough. She had been researching her favorite products on ewg.org and realized many of them were packed with toxic ingredients and fillers. So the vintner (her family owns a winery in Napa Valley) started a side project: creating a supremely effective face oil with no harmful ingredients. It took two years to develop what would become an iconic product, a luscious face oil packed with twenty-two active botanicals that make a noticeable difference in your skin. (GP, makeup artists all over the world, and our beauty director, Jean Godfrey-June, are all huge fans.) In 2019, Gargiulo created a second product, a powerful treatment essence, which treats skin to water-soluble nutrients—the yin to the serum’s yang. Used together, the pair works to transform any skin type.
