A2OC Complex antioxydant & cell oxygenator
Plants have the unique ability to manufacture their own nutrient substances, such as proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids, which we use every day in human nutrition. These plants must adapt to their ecosystem and defend themselves against external stress. Unable to move or flee from attacks, they have developed molecular systems and defenses over the course of evolution to survive. They produce numerous non-energy substances known as "secondary metabolites" that are involved in their interactions with the environment.
These molecules allow plants to communicate with each other, attract pollinators, or repel aggressors. Some secondary metabolites protect the plant's aerial parts against UV radiation, which can generate free radicals, while others repel insect attacks, and still others protect against bacterial or fungal infections. It turns out that these protective molecules in plants are often polyphenols, which also have interesting bioactive properties for humans. We also experience aggressions from our environment.
Just like plants, our skin is directly subjected to the aggressions of the sun, air pollution - including cigarette smoke - and the stress of our modern life. Indirectly, it also experiences the harmful effects of our sometimes unbalanced diet and exposure to pollutants. These regular attacks lead to a weakening and premature aging of the skin tissue.
The cosmetic approach of Vinésime
Vinésime strives to extract beneficial molecules from plants native to the Burgundy region to transmit them through its cosmetic products. The brand aims to access high-quality raw materials through ecological and organic viticulture, using prestigious Burgundy grape varieties that contain exceptionally high concentrations of polyphenols, well-known for their anti-oxidative properties and their ability to fight against cell aging.
*This involves macerating and fermenting grape seeds and pulp.
**A section of phytotherapy, the use of plants for medicinal purposes, consists of exploiting the medicinal properties of the buds of certain plants. These buds are true concentrates of the active principles of a plant, and their effect is said to be more powerful than that of a root or an adult leaf. The blackcurrant bud has the particularity of being oxygenating.
The material harvested each year during the grape harvest comes from the René Bouvier estate in Gevrey Chambertin. It is then entrusted to a plant extractor specialized in polyphenols, whose extract is used in the Vinésime skincare lines: "Le Clos" and "Racine du Temps," the latter benefiting from the A2OC* Bourgogne complex.
*Anti-Oxidant and Cellular Oxygenator.
"Racine du Temps" extract made from Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir* (organic vineyard)
It contains polyphenols: powerful antioxidants composed of catechin and epicatechin polymer (OPC).
*Maceration and fermentation of grape pulp, skin, and seeds.
Pinot Noir extract :
Antioxidant activity of Pinot Noir extract from Vinésime: 239.73 ± 14.93 ± mol of trolox equivalent/ml, which is 5 times higher than a pure green tea extract (52.42 ± 4/06 ± mol trolox equivalent/ml of extract, batch number CASC1606L1-AQBIO).

Blackcurrant buds from Burgundy (organic blackcurrants)
• Stimulate energizing activity
• Improve ATP synthesis
• Anti-free radical action
** Belonging to the phytotherapy section, this method uses the medicinal properties of plant buds, which are more effective than a root or a leaf. The blackcurrant bud has oxygenating properties.
