April Gargiulo has been immersed in the natural world since her childhood in California’s Napa Valley.
“When you live and work in a vineyard, you can’t wear any perfume or have any scent in your shampoo or other products, so I developed a keen appreciation for outdoor scents, such as the heady fragrance of orange blossoms, in my daily roaming.” — April Gargiulo, Vintner’s Daughter
Gargiulo also grew up learning about respect for the land, and for the passion and dedication required to make something into an authentic luxury product. She applied these principles in her quest to create a multitasking skin care product with 100 percent active botanical ingredients—no fillers, fragrances, or chemicals. She followed “breadcrumbs,” diving into the ancient world of tinctures, talking to those who worked with essential oils and natural healing—anyone and anything. The result is the power of nature captured in a small glass bottle. Gargiulo makes no claims to a fountain of youth, just natural, luxurious healing goodness for your skin (as two editors at Flower can attest).
