The Power of Grape Derivatives
Chemistry Scientist conducting experiments in laboratory

The discovery that oligomeric proanthocyanidins (the anti-oxidants found in grape derivatives) are 50 times the strength of Vitamin E and 20 times the strength of Vitamin C with regards to their levels of anti-oxidants, was one of the biggest inspirations to use these gems from nature.

Containing such powerful anti-oxidants fused with the latest scientific actives, TheraVine™ was destined to become a world class ultra-active, result driven health and skincare range exceeding all expectations in the health and skincare industry.


The brand’s formulations consist of many different multi-generational variations and cultivars
of grape technologies, using different parts of the grape and vine to benefit the skin in
various ways – from signs of the first wrinkles to the reversal of the deepest.

It is also one of only 2 skin care brands in the world that make use of these multi-generational,
stabilised grape actives. These are stabilised in a unique way in the TheraVine™ formulations
along with the addition of the highest recommended percentages of internationally
acclaimed active ingredients, the secret to the highly effective preparations.
