What are Biodynamic Cosmetics withOliPhenolia

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.

Results were not long in coming, and on May 7th 2019 they were also published in the scientific journal “Cosmetics”. 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” too: its health bears witness to the wellbeing of the entire body...
That is how the cosmetic products were conceived, essentially made with olives grown at the Fattoria using organic-biodynamic agriculture, as are between 65% and 90% of the products’ ingredients. “Offspring” of the fields and unique like the fruits of every season, of every harvest... “rustic” cosmetics (as some call them at La Vialla), genuine, simple, natural!

The properties:

Results of scientific research carried out by RSC Pharma have demonstrated that OliPhenolia (contained in the Creams, Body Balsam, Salve and Intensive Serum) has the following actions on epithelial cells:
- antioxidant - anti-inflammatory - anti-germ - regenerative (anti-age)

The characteristics:

Das Serum, die Haut- und Ingredients made with raw materials from biodynamic agriculture, produced at Fattoria La Vialla and Demeter certified, make up 90% of the Intensive Serum, 81% of the Olive Salve and over 65% of the Creams and Body Balsam. The other ingredients, not from agriculture, are permitted by Demeter standards. They do not contain preservatives (in accordance with the EC Regulation on cosmetic products) or colouring agents and they have neutral skin pH.

All the products have obtained the highest certification from the dermatest2 laboratories and the 5-star seal of excellence.

dermatest clinical trials have also certified the following 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.
- skin-protective, particularly for children: for the Nourishing Cream and the Olive Salve, also suitable for adults with sensitive skin.

1 In the biodynamic cosmetics OliPhenolia is used to refer solely to the purified extract of olive fruit water.
2 dermatest is an independent institute, recognised at an international level – founded in 1978 (the same year as La Vialla!) - that carries out dermatological tests on a wide range of products. Its seal guarantees that the product has been tested according to precise, strict criteria and certifies perfect skin tolerability. The 5-star seal is only awarded to products that are clinically tested.
