Proof That Vintner’s Daughter Is All Fuel, No Filler

What do sauvignon and skincare have in common? A lot, apparently. Having grown up in Napa Valley, Vintner’s Daughter Founder April Gargiulo applied her family’s tried and true wine-making techniques to create her successful skincare line. She prides herself in product quality and craftsmanship so exquisite, you could compare it to fine wines.

“If I didn’t have the background in fine winemaking and had I not been exposed to the incredibly dedicated and quality-obsessed women and men of Napa Valley, I would never have been able to create Vintner’s Daughter,” says Vintner’s Daughter Founder April Gargiulo.

Vintner’s Daughter is founded on the wine-making philosophy that less is more and quality is everything. According to Garguilo, all you need is her 3-step cleanse, essence, and oil-based serum routine for youthful, resilient, glowing skin. The three high-powered hero products penetrate deep into the skin to hydrate, brighten, boost collagen production, exfoliate, strengthen, balance, nourish, firm, and lift. No need for any extra serums or treatments. So, what’s her secret?

Starting with an ingredient-first approach, Vintner’s Daughter carefully selects whole plants (think: whole foods for the skin) specifically based on performance—all fuel, no filler.

“Like fine winemaking, our formulations begin by sourcing the world for the finest quality, most nutrient-rich plants and then honoring those plants through weeks-long, temperature-controlled processes.”

Next, similar to fermenting grapes for wine, they ferment the botanicals for three weeks to create their top shelf-worthy Active Renewal Cleanser, Active Botanical Essence, Active Botanical Serum. For reference, close to three hours of development per product is the industry norm, so three weeks is quite the commitment to best-in-class craftsmanship. During their proprietary Phyto Radiance Infusion™ process, nutrient-dense whole plants are gently and slowly extracted in a temperature-controlled environment for 21 days to infuse into an aqueous base. The essence’s infusion is then amplified by Phyto Ferment™—another two-week fermentation process (for a total of five weeks) to create probiotics, increase nutrient absorption, and deliver extraordinary results.

While a 21-day production cycle is almost unheard of in the industry, Garguilo felt differently. “Coming from the winemaking world where a bottle of wine takes 3 years to make, 3 weeks felt like nothing to me.“

As proven by wine, the best things take time. In an industry that’s constantly churning out new, trendy products and convincing folks to convolute their routines with more and more products, Vintner’s Daughter takes pride in its ‘slow beauty’ approach.

“We are not interested in creating our community’s next products. We want to create their last products, the ones they marry for life.”

Active Renewal Cleanser innovatively combines double cleansing into a single step. It’s packed with vitamin C, critical minerals, natural antioxidants, and whole botanicals to not only leave skin cleansed but also pH-balanced, invigorated, and prepped for next steps. Active Botanical Essence is an 8-in-1 skincare step that includes more than 70 water-soluble nutrients and next-generation plant actives, including stabilized vitamin C, micro and mini hyaluronic acid, plant stem cells, micro-exfoliating plant acids, and enzymes. It firms, plumps, exfoliates, balances, brightens, and hydrates while fortifying and supporting your skin health. Active Botanical Serum, on the other hand, features skin-beautifying vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, antioxidants, phytoceramides, aminos, and omega fatty acids. In other words, a true green juice-like concoction to nourish the skin.

The result? An immediate, filter-like glow. But, over time (say, 2–6 weeks), you’ll also notice your skin becoming stronger, more resilient, firmer, and more youthful—no corkscrew required. In simpler terms, it works.

“We feel grateful to have a community that supports our mission to have an incredibly positive impact on their skin, life, and our shared world,” says Garguilo.
