Inspired by the sea’s healing botanicals, Vincene Parrinello, a former nurse and patented skin care inventor, commenced on a journey to transform the appearance of her challenged, scarred skin caused by surgeries as well as the long term use of medications. She discovered the healing qualities and regenerative properties from rare seaweeds that she has blended together for the proprietary Biogenic Seaweed Antioxidant Broth, used instead of water to formulate the Sea Active™ products. The best place to start creating a truly innovative, effective skin care formula was looking at the primary ingredient of the formula- water. Vincene Parrinello believes this is the greatest “oops” in cosmetic chemistry. She took the water and created a “nutrient enriched broth” starting with coconut water, glacier water, pure spring Hawaiian and Fijian waters. These waters are then infused with seventeen seaweeds, fruits, flowers, teas (White Green tea, Emperor tea, Kambucha tea, Roobios tea) and vegetables. This “nutrient broth” is the main ingredient of Sea Active Skincare (with the exception of our Vinni’s Private Reserve Serum, which is complete organic essential oil serum). “If you are going to develop something to truly help skin that has challenges you need to think out of the box. The skin needs something greater, something real. Starting off with the main ingredient being a nutrient source augments the other organic ingredients to optimally replenish and rejuvenate dry, sensitive, aging skin brought on my stress, illness and medications.” Vinni Parrinello.

Sharing her spirit of hope and forging ahead making a difference for others with skin challenges.

How It All Began…The Extraordinary Sea Active™ Skincare Story

Drawing from her educational background in nursing, Vinni Parrinello came to learn that medicine mimics nature. Pharmacology is based on nature and it’s duplicate specific properties are recreated synthetically in laboratories.

Since Vinni’s first visit to a famous Apothecary in Florence, Italy she has been intrigued with the European approach to wellness. It confirmed everything her Sicilian grandmother would do when caring for the family. The European apothecaries create natural serums from plants and botanicals. Vinni left Italy with a greater knowledge and understanding that the solutions for many of our health concerns can come from nature. However, the medical side of her also realizes the importance of medicine. She also understands first hand, that to battle an illness and emerge the victor, one must take charge in their recovery process. The physicians, medications and surgeries are an important part, but it is the spirit, the body and the mind when integrated into a recovery program that really seems to make a difference. She found that skin care became an important connection to those aspects of wellness, knowing this she intensively focused on studying and searching for botanicals raised on organic farms but also took to the gardens that lie deep in the sea. Here she found ingredients so beneficial to her fragile, immune compromised skin that she began to create her own ingredients using these sea botanicals.

With these ingredients she developed, she used her background as a patented, GOLD medal winning skin care formulator and inventor and created Sea Active™ Skincare, a line of skin care products containing “genuinely natural™” ingredients that are enhanced by a unique delivery system that Vinni has developed. Using botanicals both from land and sea, minerals from the earth Vinni’s proprietary ingredient, the Biogenic Seaweed Antioxidant Broth™ (BSA Broth™)which is the main ingredient of Sea Active™ Skincare she found her skin care moisturizers, serums and creams to be extremely effective in enhancing the skin’s appearance, especially for others like her, that have sensitive skin. The other breakthrough ingredient Alginiacin Hyaluronate™ delivers powerful antioxidants, moisture, vitamins,D3, Pycogenol, Catechins in botanically derived Hyaluronic Acid.

Some people say that Vinni is a walking miracle. Maybe so. She started a business on a shoestring budget, following a battle with cancer and other health issues. No one thought a former nurse, with no experience in cosmetics or sales, would ever succeed in this highly competitive market. Customers have brought us this success. They keep coming and we are happy to be here for them. Hearing their testimonial stories helps all of us heal. We see true beauty exude from each of customers. For those who feel “beauty” for the first time, we believe our naturopathic formulas illuminate the beauty that was already there.

Vinni is a 24 year cancer survivor. Not a day goes when she doesn’t praise God for watching over her, giving her the insight to focus on the things she could change to enhance her health and for providing her with excellent health care providers so that she could be here today, helping others.

It takes care and respect for nature’s chemistry to formulate pure, effective skin care products that will nurture our skin, spirit and life. We took what appeared to be ordinary ingredients from land and sea, blending them with other fabulous ingredients and created an extraordinary skin care line.”

-Vinni Parrinello
