How did VMV Hypoallergenics get its start?
Our founding Dermatologist successfully treated her husband of lifetime chronic skin issues with her own formulations and he suggested that she brand them to help other people with their health as well.
Talk to us about the hypoallergenic grading system.
VMV Hypoallergenics' products are clinically validated hypoallergenic which means they are excluded from common irritants and allergens. VMV transparently indicates possible allergens in the product ingredient lists. These common allergens are excluded or minimized to the least possible per formulation. The VH rating is now up to 109 allergen exclusions. For example, if a product has one possible allergen, it will be rated at 108/109 and that ingredient is underscored and asterisked in the ingredients list. People with highly sensitive or allergenic skin are encouraged to do a skin patch test to avoid being affected by use any of the products. VMV references the common allergens as studied and indicated by the global authorities of the NACDG (North America Contact Dermatitis Group) and ESSCA (European Surveillance System on Contact Allergies), who perform thousands and thousands of tests with people from around the world identifying common allergies. Sadly, in the last few years, the rise of common allergens has dramatically grown from 76 to 109 according to our grading system. VMV reformulates where necessary to maintain the brand’s mission of offering clinically validated hypoallergenic products.
