Sea Active™ Skincare is not developed by a faceless scientist in a lab, but by Vinni Parrinello, a medically challenged breast cancer survivor, who has been battling medical conditions for over thirty years leaving her with skin challenges.
After two decades of researching the effects of medications and illness on the skin, being inspired by European apothecaries, Vinni, a former nurse and patented, gold medal skincare inventor has created an organic, trade secret, seaweed based skincare line that targets dull, dry, sensitive skin caused by DNA changes associated with an illness and its medications. According to the Mayo Clinic, 70% of Americans are taking at least one prescribed medication. As a result, Parrinello researched the chemical composition of 370 of the most widely prescribed medications in the US to learn more about the effects that chemicals in personal care products have on medication efficacy.
Initially, Parrinello thought her skin changes were an isolated case. It wasn’t until having conversations with hundreds of other people taking medications, that she realized this wasn’t the case and something needed to be done.
“Illness and medications change the skin’s cellular DNA making it unable to retain moisture. Skin becomes sensitive, ruddy or sallow with a loss of skin vibrancy and elasticity. I was mortified when I discovered that chemicals in personal care products not only contributed to skin degradation but also inhibited many medications from optimally treating the illness,” says Vinni Parrinello.
