A2OC Complex antioxydant & cell oxygenator
Plants have the special faculty to produce their own nutrients, proteins, carbohydrates, and fats, which we use every day in the human diet. These plants must adapt to their ecosystem and defend themselves against external stress. Since they cannot move or flee from attacks, they have slowly evolved molecular systems and responses to survive them. They thus produce numerous non-energetic substances called "secondary metabolites" which are involved in their interactions with the environment.
These molecules enable plants to communicate with each other, attract pollinators or repel attackers... Some secondary metabolites protect the aerial parts of the plant against UV rays, which generate free radicals, others repel insect attacks and others protect them against bacterial or fungal infections. It turns out that these protective plant molecules are often polyphenols that also have bioactive properties that are of interest to humans. We are also subject to the damaging factors of our environment.
Our skin, just like plants, is directly subjected to damage from the sun, air pollution, including cigarette smoke, and the stress of our modern lives. Indirectly, it is also subject to the harmful eﬀects of our sometimes-unbalanced diets and is a vector of pollutants. These regular attacks lead to the weakening and premature ageing of skin tissue.
Vinésime's cosmetic approach
Vinésime strives to extract the beneficial molecules from the plants of the Burgundy region and pass them on through its cosmetic products. The brand is committed to accessing quality raw materials through ecological and organic viticulture from the prestigious Burgundy grape varieties, which contain polyphenols in exceptional concentrations, well known for their antioxidant action and for helping to fight against the ageing of our cells.
*Maceration and fermentation of the grape seeds and pulp.
**A type of phytotherapy, plant-based treatment, which consists in exploiting the medicinal benefits of the buds of certain plants. These buds are true concentrates of a plant's active substances, and their effect is thus 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 comes from the René Bouvier estate in Gevrey Chambertin. It is then sent to a plant extractor specialising in polyphenols, the extract of which is used in the composition of the Vinésime care ranges: “Le Clos” and “Racine du temps”, the latter benefiting from the Burgundy A2OC* complex.
*Antioxidant and cell oxygenator.

BURGUNDY BLACKCURRANT BUD EXTRACT (Organic agriculture)
• Stimulate energising activity
• Improve ATP synthesis
• Anti free radical action
** Appartient à la section phytothérapie, cette méthode utilise les vertus médicinales des bourgeons végétaux, plus efficaces qu'une racine ou une feuille. Le bourgeon de cassis a des propriétés oxygénantes.
