The Safest, Most Proven Effective Care On The Planet. Validated Hypoallergenic, clinically-published We’re skincerely thrilled to meet you!

VMV HYPOALLERGENICS® offers the safest, most proven effective care on the planet.

1 in 4 people is allergic to common ingredients in skincare and cosmetics: we're made for the 1 in 4, extra-safe for everyone else. We're here to save the world's skin. That might sound like a lofty claim but it's really just what we "dew"...what we've always done. We have over 75 published (even awarded!) clinical

“The Safest, Most (proven!) Effective Care On The Planet”®️ means evidence … that your skincare does what it says it does and that it won’t harm your skin!

📚 Coconut-derived monolaurin, for example. A study published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology compared monolaurin against 6 common antibiotics in skin culture samples with primary and secondary skin infections.

🦠 Monolaurin performed well: “statistically significant in vitro broad-spectrum sensitivity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial isolates from superficial skin infections” and, crucially, the microbes showed no resistance to it (a problem for many antibiotics).

🧴 Even more impressive: it’s OUR monolaurin that performed well. This study was done using the monolaurin you find in our products. Meaning it’s not just one of the many (many) published studies proving monolaurin’s antimicrobial efficacy. It’s a study using the exact monolaurin you find in our products.

🔬 As important: monolaurin does not harm the skin’s native, healthy microorganisms.

😇 And, it’s not a top contact allergen!

Win, win, win, win, win! 🎉

Getting one clinical study published in a peer-reviewed journal, especially for a skincare brand, is a very big deal. Thanks to our founding dermatopathologist, we boast over 75.

⚗️ Why this matters: our promise is the safest most proven effective care on the planet. Randomized, double-blind clinical studies are the gold standard for proof of efficacy and acceptance for publication in a peer-reviewed journal provides additional validation.

📚 While there are over 75 published studies of VMV products (or with research that went into VMV products), she herself has over 200 published clinical studies.

🧫 We do multiple tests — from patch testing to microbial efficacy, evidence-based trials and more — even when we don’t intend to publish, just as a standard part of our product development.

Friday … more brands are jumping on the skin safe bandwagon, which we think is wonderful! We’ve been doing it since 1979 and can attest to how well it works!

👃 Fragrance-Free was a day-one requirement because our founding dermatologist already saw reactions to scents increasing in her patients way back in the 1970s.

❌ An early VMV “skinnovation” was making sure we were *all-types-of*-fragrance-free because some fragrances could be hiding in the form of ingredients not called “parfum” (like cinnamide or benzyl alcohol) and masking fragrances didn’t smell perfumey but made products smell like nothing and were definitely allergens. This is why our products proudly smell like the lab they were born in!

📚 New regulations like MoCRA in the USA are requiring brands to disclose allergens. Our founding dermatologist published the VH-Rating System — the first (and still the only) rating system for skin safety using allergen omission — in 1988. All our products show not just how many allergens are absent but, if an allergen is in the formulation, which one it is (so if it’s not one of yours, you can still use the product).

🏆 A study published in the journal of the American Contact Dermatitis Society on the VH-Rating System’s efficacy shows less than 0.1% reactions in over 30 years.

That’s our founder’s signature on the top of every box! 🖋️

🔬 She is both a dermatologist and a dermatopathologist, meaning she is also an expert in skin diseases at a molecular level (these are the doctors who read your biopsy slides). This provides VMV a rare edge in that our products are formulated with an understanding of skin at a deeper, microscopic level.

📚 She is widely published and regularly cited. Research with applications in VMV products account for about 75 of her over 200 published clinical studies in peer-reviewed journals around the world.

🔍 She invented the VH-Rating System, the first (and still the only) rating system for skin safety using allergen omissions.

🤫 She was ok with her initials as the brand but not her name. She asked not to be used to market the products (she says she’s “the cook in the kitchen”) and continues to see patients, teach, and conduct clinical studies today.

🌳 She is the reason why our focus is so clear: the safest, most (proven!) effective care on the planet for all skins — even the neediest, most complex skins — on all people.

Your skin’s safe space began in 1979 with a patented formulation: Superskin Toner. 🥇

The original toner used retinoic acid and clindamycin. Later, with growing reports of antibiotic resistance and new research into microbiome friendly coconut derivatives, the formulation changed to a mandelic acid-monolaurin formulation. Because making the safest, most (proven!) effective care on the planet means evolving with scientific advancements.

After decades, Superskin remains one of our most popular products overall for its reliable, non-irritating, multifunctional efficacy for acne, melasma, and rejuvenation.

All-Types-Of-Fragrance-Free, dye-free, paraben-free, and clinically-proven.

POINT OF “SKINTEREST”:
When did we become loco for coconuts? 🥥

After meeting a pioneer in the research of coconut derivatives for various health uses, our founding dermatologist-dermatopathologist was inspired to conduct clinical trials (among the first!) on monolaurin and virgin coconut oil for the skin specifically. Many of these studies were published in dermatology journals, are still regularly cited online, and appeared in her 2005 book Rx: Coconuts.

With the science being so sound, and us being evidence-based from our beginnings, virgin coconut oil and monolaurin have been staples in our products — from skin caring actives to a key part of of our non-preservative formulation integrity system — for their:

🛡️ Skin barrier care
💧 Unrivaled moisturization (VCO’s fatty acids are native to skin)
🦠 Microbiome-friendly, broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties
😇 Hypoallergenicity
⚪️ Non-comedogenicity and non-acnegenicity
… and other excellent properties.

Just another way we’ve been your skin’s safe space since 1979!

Pulling your hair back in a tight style like a bun, weave, or braids could eventually cause hair loss.

Learn some ways to avoid it (and when to see a board-certified dermatologist) in this helpful article on the American Academy of Dermatology website: https://www.aad.org/public/diseases/hair-loss/causes/hairstyles

Repost from

Oops. No one told you? The girlies love a slicked-back bun for day & night looks. But it turns out, the style might not love you back. In fact, it’s possible slicked-back hair causes hair loss, but don’t stress. If you can’t live without pulling your strands back into a ponytail or a bun, at the link in bio are a few ways to keep from going bald. (Sorry.)

Your shampoo could help you lose less hair! 💆

👩‍🦲 WHAT CAUSES HAIR LOSS
A lot of hair loss is due to hormonal, genetic factors, other conditions like alopecia, or some root-stressing practices like regularly pulling your hair back tight. A temporary hair loss called telogen effluvium can be caused by exceptional physical occurrences that the body goes through such as Covid, chemotherapy, or extreme stress.

⛽️ OTHER THINGS CAN FUEL BALDNESS
Because stress and inflammation are so linked with hair loss, using shampoo, conditioner, or hair styling products with ingredients that stress the scalp and follicles can fuel baldness.

🥗 SKINCARE = HAIRCARE = HEALTHCARE
Healthy practices include eating lots of fresh veggies, cutting down on junk, daily exercise, stress management, ample sleep, and allergen-free products. They might not stop hair loss but they’ll reduce the role inflammation plays, hasten recovery (especially in telogen effluvium), and could help medicines work better.

🚿 WHAT TO CHOOSE
Allergen-free shampoos and body washes like Superwash, Clark Wash, and Coo-&-Clean are as gentle on scalp, facial, and body skin as they are on roots and hair shafts.
