Davi Skin: The History
In 1966, Robert Mondavi founded a winery with a mission to create a California wine that would stand up to the elite wines of the world. Forty years later, his grandson Carlo Mondavi has ventured out form the family’s sacred Napa Valley Vineyards to create something alike in the skincare business. This luxury product not only reflects the California lifestyle fostered by his family’s wine, but performs better than the already established skincare regimes available today. He turned to what he knew best, as a third generation vinter, Carlo Mondavi has created a line of skincare with roots firmly planted in his family’s vineyards.
The result is Davi, a line of luxury skincare encompassing the unique by-products of the wine-making process coupled with the latest innovations in modern technology.
Davi: A Gift for the Skin
Fresh from the vineyards of Napa Valley, California comes Davi, a revolutionary skincare line for men and women. Created by Carlo Mondavi, grandson to the modern American icon Robert Mondavi, Davi is founded upon the antioxidant health benefits found in the fermented grape extracts. A tribute to the Mondavi name, Davi products contain only “perfect” grapes, as set by the Mondavi standard of nine sets of eyes reviewing each grape before they are deemed suitable for inclusion.
Carlo became intrigued by the concept of “freshly picked skincare,” focusing on the benefits of the pommace, a by-product of grape skins and seeds that result from the wine making process during fermentation. Through extensive research and collaboration with UC Davis, Carlo confirmed the immense health benefits of fermented grape extracts, pommace and the grape itself.
At the core of our products is a proprietary microencapsulated anti-aging antioxidant complex called Meritage. Created in close collaboration with laboratories in Lyon, France, Meritage is a unique blend of grape and fermented wine extracts, green tea, raspberry, black currant and bilberry extracts, rosemary and olive leaf extracts. Meritage is created through a unique double fermentation process and preserved in the formula until the moment it is applied to the skin.
Because it is microencapsulated, the select high-level antioxidants of Meritage are able to remain active on the skin hours longer than conventionally created products. Meritage’s sustained time-release technology provides a slow infusion of antioxidant health benefits to the skin. A daily regimen of Davi skincare restores and rejuvenates, leaving your skin the picture of health—young, radiant, and full of life.
Davi: The Product
Davi is a unique line of luxury skincare specially formulated for men and women. Davi is extremely effective in the fight against aging, in addition to promoting the overall health and well being of your skin. Davi is created from the byproducts of the sacred winemaking process. During the fermentation of fine wine, a unique byproduct containing polyphenols, the world’s strongest known naturally occurring antioxidant is created.
Antioxidants are the best way to combat free radicals, the toxins generated by a variety of sources including sunlight, diet, smoke, and pollution that cause up to 80% of the visible signs of aging. These polyphenols, combined with other select natural ingredients are the basis for this revolutionary line of skincare products.
