Biodynamic Cosmetics

with OliPhenolia® - Demeter and Dermatest Certified

From research on OliPhenolia's skin regeneration properties to biodynamic cosmetics

During experiments to verify OliPhenolia’s chemopreventive effect in colon cancer, Dr Albini’s staff noticed growth factors in some types of cells. Specific research was carried out with regard to the regenerative potential of OliPhenolia on skin and the patent application filed in September 2017, confirms that the polyphenols contained in this phytocomplex are able not only to harm diseased cells in our body, but also to take care of the healthy cells of our epithelial tissue.
In 2015, collaboration began with RSC Pharma, in Gießen, an important German pharmaceutical laboratory, partner and executive director of which is Dr Thomas M. Schmidts, a client of the Fattoria. Motivated by the research and articles published by Dr Albini and her team on the properties of olive vegetation water, he managed to convince the Viallini (initially very hesitant: for them it was a field that had nothing to do with all the Fattoria’s other work) to undertake a series of studies in order to use the properties of OliPhenolia1 on skin, in biodynamic cosmetics.
The results were not long in coming: after research and experiments both in vitro and on volunteers La Vialla surrendered ....after all the skin, the largest organ of our body, needs good “nourishment” – its health bears witness to the wellbeing of the entire body.

Gießen, December 2017: scientist Dr Thomas Schmidts, in
the centre, with his colleagues Dr Peggy Schlupp and engineer
Sören Wildenhain.

After 3 years of research, the results of laboratory tests carried out by RSC Pharma demonstrated that OliPhenolia1, contained in the creams, balsam and serum, has the following properties:

- antioxidant
- anti-inflammatory
- anti-germ
- regenerative (anti-age)

Seeing its effectiveness, tests were carried out for each product, on 20 people, for 4 weeks. The Intensive Serum, Face Cream and Hand Cream have the dermatest2 5-star seal certifying their moisturising and anti-wrinkle effects.
- moisturising: improving skin hydration by 54% for the Intensive Serum, by 25% for the Face Cream, by 32% for the Hand Cream and by 53% for the Body Balsam.
- anti-wrinkle: reducing wrinkles and skin imperfections by 24% for the Intensive Serum and by 15% for the Face Cream.

The characteristics of La Vialla’s biodynamic cosmetics:

The serum, face and hand creams, and now the body balsam as well, are 100% natural. 90% of the serum and 70% of the creams and balsam are made with biodynamic, Demeter certified, raw materials from Fattoria La Vialla. The rest of the ingredients, not from agriculture, are allowed by Demeter standards.
They do not contain any preservatives (in accordance with the EC Regulation on cosmetic products) or colouring agents. They have neutral skin pH.

All the products have obtained the highest quality certification from the dermatest laboratories and the 5-star seal of excellence.

1 In the biodynamic cosmetics OliPhenolia is used to refer solely to the purified extract of olive mill waste water (without grape juice or lemon juice).
2 dermatest is an independent institute, recognised at an international level – founded in 1978 (like La Vialla!) – that carries out dermatological tests on a wide range of products. Its seal guarantees that the product has been teste according to precise, strict criteria and certifies perfect skin tolerability. The 5-star seal is only awarded to products that are clinically tested.
