Introducing Liposomial Well-Aging: the new range of specialist care products for mature women’s skin

Introducing Liposomial Well-Aging: the new range of specialist care products for mature women’s skin

Almost 7.5 million women in Spain are aged 50 or over. Their lifestyle is in stark contrast with previous generations. Unlike their forebears, they feel confident, dynamic and attractive. Today’s mature woman no longer hides her age: she wears it as a badge of honour and maturity. This new woman shuns the artificial. For her, beauty is synonymous with health and naturalness. It is no longer a question of fighting off the passage of time, but of joining forces with it, making the most of life by fully enjoying each and every moment. This is a woman in search of products that help her to maintain her natural beauty, being herself, because she is confident in her own skin.  Well-Aging means ageing naturally and intensely enjoying every moment of life With this new woman in mind, one who stays young in her maturity, Laboratorios Viñas launches Liposomial® Well-Aging, a range of products designed for all skin types past the age of 50. The formulas of this new line reflect the woman for whom Liposomial® Well-Aging is created: a woman who is active and honest, who knows what she wants, knows how to take care of herself and understands that technology can be a helping hand to keep her skin healthy.  Cellular Longevity With the innovative LWA Complex®, this range is designed to prolong a woman’s natural beauty, lengthening her cellular longevity and preserving her skin’s health. Its content based on liposomes, hyaluronic acid and vitamins A and E offers three-fold benefits found in each and every one of the line’s products. 1.- Detox action on cells: reactivates the cell’s own waste removal process - one which deteriorates over the years and contributes towards ageing - to preserve skin’s cellular health and prolong its longevity. 2.- Offers and instant re-tautening effect. A network of biopolymers generates an invisible 3D veil with an “express facelift” tautening effect, providing an instant sensation of comfort on skin. Transported via next-generation liposomes, vitamins A and E reinforce the anti-wrinkle action. 3.- Improves skin’s elasticity and luminosity thanks to a prolonged hydrating effect. Present throughout the range, hyaluronic acid is its key hydration booster. It forms a film at skin’s surface, boosting its moisture-fixing ability and helping to improve the skin’s elasticity and tone, while smoothing micro-texture and evening out the complexion. Furthermore, all of the range’s products are infused with a floral feminine fragrance. The aroma’s top notes - over the first 15 minutes - of bergamot, green notes and apple offer a fresh effect; the middle notes - which are prolonged over up to 6 hours - of lemon, jasmine, peach and carnation confer a sense of femininity, while the base notes - which last up to 24 hours - of aquatic notes, sandalwood and musk invite relaxation and create a luxury feel.  The range is made up of 4 references With its melt-in texture, Liposomial® Well-Aging Firming Day Cream SPF 15 moisturises skin with an instant re-tautening effect, re-structuring it to prevent the appearance of wrinkles and boosting its resistance. With an SPF 15 sun filter. Liposomial® Well-Aging Restoring Night Cream is a nourishing cream with a soft, non-greasy texture, which moisturises skin while activating nocturnal cell renewal, for a visible reduction in wrinkles. Prevents and treats the signs of ageing while improving elasticity. Liposomial® Well-Aging Intensive Lifting Serum is an intensive regenerating treatment that offers a lasting lifting effect, boosting the effects of the Liposomial® Well-Aging creams. It treats wrinkles in-depth and regenerates skin’s luminosity. It is endowed with a refreshing texture with a soft-touch, oil-free effect. Liposomial® Well-Aging Eye Contour Filler is a specific eye contour treatment to tauten, nourish and smooth skin to maintain youthful-looking eyes with an innovative, fresh and light texture. It combats signs of fatigue and offers a wrinkle-filler effect. Its innovative silicone applicator makes application easy and pleasant. Ophthalmologically tested.  Visible results in 28 days The Liposomial® Well-Aging range products’ effects on the treatment of the signs of mature skin ageing have been proven. A sensorial study carried out on over 300 volunteers* confirmed their appreciation of visible results in 28 days. Furthermore, 9 in 10 women preferred Liposomial® Well-Aging to their usual cream. Their reviews included highlights such as “visible reduction of expression lines” and “visible anti-wrinkle effect.” They also found that the combined use of Liposomial® Well-Aging Firming Day Cream SPF 15 and Liposomial® Well-Aging Restoring Night Cream improved the visible results. This new range of products offers high efficacy and enjoys the backing of a pharmaceutical company with strong expertise in dermocosmetics, with an excellent price-quality ratio.  30 years of Liposomial® Anti-ageing Liposomial®, the mature skin specialist brand from Laboratorios Viñas is celebrating its 30th birthday. In 1988, Liposomial® Anti-ageing was launched and has been a benchmark product in pharmacy cosmetics ever since. A pioneer in the use of liposomes to combat the different signs of ageing, it remained the market’s number 1 product for many years and continues to be trusted by thousands of women today, who enjoy the outstanding moisturisation and comfort it provides.

Laboratorios Viñas continues to support the Farmamundi Emergency Fund in 2017

Laboratorios Viñas continues to support the Farmamundi Emergency Fund in 2017

The Farmamundi Emergency Fund, which we have been collaborating with for over ten years, is drawing 2017 to a close with 14 initiatives focused on the provision of medications, hygiene and food kits, as well as healthcare and training. It has been possible to improve the health and quality of life of over 91,000 people ­­­— especially women and children under five — thanks to the 14 initiatives organised by the Farmamundi Humanitarian Action and Emergency Fund in 2017, acting in 12 countries: Nicaragua, Haiti, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Peru, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, southern Sudan/Uganda, Kenya and Mali. This NGO, which we have worked with non-stop for over a decade, has primarily directed its funds towards the provision of essential medications, hygiene, shelter and staple food kits, as well as healthcare and training. “Highlights from this year’s initiatives include healthcare, food and shelter provision for families of Syrian refugees, southern Sudanese women in Uganda and assistance in the slums of the Kenyan capital Nairobi”, explains Farmamundi’s managing director, Joan Peris. Another key initiative was the provision of food packs and infant formula to over 4,000 people in Khan Younis on the Gaza Strip, in view of the ongoing blockade and reports of a deterioration in the humanitarian situation, as was the NGO’s support of El Salvador’s Hospital Nacional Rosales with medication to treat a flu (influenza) outbreak. Furthermore, around 400 families in the communities most affected by hurricanes Irma and Maria in the Dominican Republic received hygiene and food kits, bottled drinking water and protection and shelter kits. The living conditions of 5,000 people affected by hurricane Matthew (Haiti) were also improved, with healthcare provision in the form of mobile clinics and the supply of hygiene kits, mosquito nets, drinking water and food, and other necessities. Farmamundi is grateful for the effort and commitment of all of the Emergency Fund’s member organisations: “Without their dedication, it would not be possible to carry out these initiatives each year when emergencies arise, or to assist communities in a chronic state of crisis with the necessary agility and reliability.”

Ginecomplex Lactancia, the perfect combination for mothers and nursing babies

Ginecomplex Lactancia, the perfect combination for mothers and nursing babies

 The scientific community is unanimous. Natural breastfeeding is the best form of nourishment in early infancy. The benefits are proven: maternal breast milk is of excellent nutritional and immunological value. It provides benefits for growth, development and defences from infancy to maturity, promotes intellectual and cognitive development, assists in the establishment of bacterial flora and boosts the affective bond between mother and baby. In Spain, according to the National Healthcare Surveys run by the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality since 1995 and included in the 2016 report “Breastfeeding figures” by the Breastfeeding Committee of the Spanish Paediatrics Association, the percentage of mothers who breastfeed is maintained at 74% during the first year, but it drops to 46% in the second year. These figures are similar to those for Europe, but below World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations, which recommend breastfeeding up to two years of age. Diet is essential During breastfeeding, the mother’s nutritional and energetic needs increase and can even be greater than in pregnancy. The Breastfeeding Committee of the Spanish Paediatrics Association emphasizes the importance of a varied, balanced and nourishing diet during this period. It is important to consider that diet affects the composition of breast milk and if the mother’s diet has deficiencies, the baby’s nutrition may also be deficient. A study carried out in 2008 by Jose Luis Gómez Llorente, from the Paediatrics Department of the University of Granada, found that nine in ten breastfeeding mothers did not have an appropriate diet: 94% of the lactating mothers who participated in the study had a hypocaloric diet, 88% had a vitamin A deficit and 99% had a vitamin E deficiency. It should also be noted that certain nutrients, such as DHA, folic acid, iodine, iron and vitamin A, among others, are difficult to obtain from diet alone. A complete and balanced combination The risk of deficiencies in certain minerals and vitamins during breastfeeding can be avoided by taking Ginecomplex Lactancia from Laboratorios Viñas. It is a complete and balanced combination of omega-3 fatty acids (especially DHA), trace elements, minerals and vitamins specifically recommended to cover the fundamental nutritional needs of the mother and nursing baby during breastfeeding. Its composition includes vitamins: folic acid, which benefits the growth of maternal tissues during pregnancy and the cell division process; vitamin A, which contributes to the maintenance of normal vision and assists in the normal functioning of the immune system; vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B8 and B12, which contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system; vitamin E, which helps protect cells against oxidative stress; vitamin C, which promotes normal collagen formation for blood vessels as well as the normal functioning of the nervous system, and vitamin D, which is involved in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. In addition, it contains four essential trace elements: zinc, which contributes to the cell division process and the normal functioning of the immune system; iron, which aids in normal haemoglobin formation; magnesium, which contributes to normal neuromuscular activity, and iodine, which contributes to normal nervous system function, as well as other minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, copper and manganese. Maximum supply of DHA  Ginecomplex Lactancia provides lactating women with the highest daily quantities of DHA (280 mg), an omega-3 fatty acid that provides significant benefits for both the mother and the nursing infant. According to the EFSA and the Italian RDA, DHA requirements increase to 100-300 mg per day during pregnancy and breastfeeding and normally these recommended levels are not reached through usual diet. DHA is a significant component that promotes the nursing infant’s visual and neuronal function, contributing to normal mental and cognitive development. In addition, increased maternal DHA levels reduce the risk of postpartum depression, or act as an adjunct to therapy if the mother does develop it. Postpartum depression is a more common disorder than people think, as indicated in an article published in 2015 by the Spanish Gynaecological Association which suggests that 80% of women are affected. In a study assessing 380 women in the postnatal period using the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale, it was demonstrated that a 1% increase in plasma DHA levels was associated with a 59% reduction in the symptoms of depression.  Sources: - Ministerio de Sanidad, Servicios Sociales e Igualdad – www.msssi.gob.es- World Health Organization (WHO) – www.who.int- Comité de Lactancia Materna.

Fundación EMALAIKAT’s work in Malawi boosted thanks to special aid from Laboratorios Viñas

Fundación EMALAIKAT’s work in Malawi boosted thanks to special aid from Laboratorios Viñas

 This year, Madrid was the city chosen to celebrate the 45th Spanish National Dermatology Congress organised by the Spanish Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (AEDV). Once again, the Congress featured the announcement and presentation of economic aid contributions arranged by the Fundación Piel Sana, a not-for-profit foundation launched by the AEDV, intended to promote and fund healthcare intervention projects designed to improve dermatological health in different parts of the world, proposed and run by NGOs, private or not-for-profit organisations and individuals. Continuing in its tradition of corporate action, Laboratorios Viñas provided one of the two contributions granted each year. In 2017, the project receiving the first prize of 12,000 € sponsored by Viñas was presented by Fundación EMALAIKAT. Its goal is to improve the dermatological health of the population in Malawi’s Benga region, Nkhotakota, with Dr. Cristina Galvan and Dr. Marc Corbacho acting as the key project leads and collecting the prize during the gala. This project has a range of objectives: - Its global objective is to improve dermatological health in the Benga region;- Its specific objectives are: To establish cooperation and teaching activities with the region’s healthcare professionals, allowing them to recognise and treat dermatological pathologies in the population.To improve the health of Benga’s inhabitants by offering dermatological care as well as medical and pharmacological treatments.To reduce the incidence of dermatological diseases in the population thanks to training on preventive actions.To gain epidemiological data on dermatoses in this region of Malawi. It is hoped that, through these initiatives, dermatological diseases among the region’s children will be reduced thanks to the improved diagnostic and therapeutic capacities of the healthcare professionals working in the area. It is also hoped that dermatological and sexually transmitted diseases in adults will decrease, and that hygiene habits related to dermatological diseases in both children and adults will be improved. The number of direct beneficiaries could reach 1,000 children and 500 adults, while the indirect beneficiaries could number between 5,000 and 6,000 people. And all of this in Malawi, a country where more than 40% of the population lives below the poverty threshold and lacks access to basic necessities according to data from the World Bank (2012). This year, the 6,000 € aid from the Fundación Piel Sana was also granted to the Asociación Calor y Café, which takes in homeless people who are socially excluded. Projects applying for the aid granted through the Fundación Piel Sana must comply with certain essential requirements, including: a concrete formulation with realistic results, performance indicators, an event schedule and itemised budget. They must also be directed towards a particularly underprivileged population and area, meet genuine needs and integrate with other initiatives in the area. They must have support from the local authorities and have a dermatological focus with clear and concrete healthcare repercussions to address diseases of epidemiological importance in the region. In 2007, the Spanish Academy of Dermatology and Venereology, a century-old medical society bringing together Spanish dermatologists, whose goal is to promote the study of the skin and its diseases for patients’ benefit, launched the creation of the Fundación Piel Sana, a not-for-profit organisation whose goal is to run and support initiatives promoting improved skin health in the population, be it through the promotion and sharing of knowledge on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and better health maintenance, or through the running of concrete initiatives in this regard. Laboratorios Viñas is celebrating the fact that, for the third year running, they have been able to offer this aid at an event attended by a great many people, offering an outstanding platform to work in favour of solidarity. Of all healthcare areas, Viñas has always fostered close ties with and dedication towards the specialty of dermatology.

Healthcare for refugee families from Syria, Ecuador and Haiti focus the attention of Laboratorios Viñas and Farmamundi in 2016

Healthcare for refugee families from Syria, Ecuador and Haiti focus the attention of Laboratorios Viñas and Farmamundi in 2016

 For the ninth year running, Laboratorios Viñas, one of Farmamundi’s greatest allies in its Emergencies Fund, made a major economic contribution that has been used to implement several emergency interventions in Syria, Ecuador, Haiti, El Salvador, Peru, Kenya, Mali, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Gaza and Serbia, to the benefit of 80,985 people. The interventions placed the focus on health and food aid for the most vulnerable population, particularly refugees, women and children. Laboratorios Viñas and Farmamundi have a cooperation agreement which has been reinforced in recent years and provides for immediate action in case of disaster, conflicts and situations of chronic health imbalance. Refugees in Syria, the earthquake in Ecuador and Hurricane Matthew underpinned actions in 2016. After more than six years of armed conflict, food and health aid to refugee families in Syria and Serbia continue to be a priority for Farmamundi. Together with the Jafra local NGO (Foundation for Relief and Youth Development), food, medicines and hygiene kits were distributed to some 8,000 people in the camp of Khan Eshieh, in a rural area near Damascus after summer. Due to this camp’s situation of insecurity and isolation, the refugee population has to face major risks to get to Zakia or Damascus and procure basic-need articles and food. Farmamundi and Laboratorios Viñas also provided assistance in the post-emergency period of the 7.8-degree earthquake that hit the northern area of Ecuador, destroying infrastructures, houses and crops. The Emergency Fund provided urgent healthcare and supplied drinking water to 1,500 families from the hardest-hit areas in the provinces of Manabi and Esmeraldas. Also in Haiti, an emergency healthcare intervention was implemented for the population affected by Hurricane Matthew with the support of the Movimiento Socio-Cultural para los Trabajadores Haitianos (MOSCTHA) NGO by means of the delivery of food kits, bottled water, hygiene kits, basic medicines and healthcare with a mobile unit for more than 2500 people. In Gaza, coinciding with Ramadan, baby milk, sugar, rice, oil, jam, lentils and other basic-need products were supplied to displaced families on the Gaza Strip with the support of the Palestine NGO Labour Resources Center (LRC). All this with the purpose of alleviating the stifling situation affecting the population in the area of Shejayeh, with a constantly receding socio-economic situation due to the economic blockade implemented by Israel since 2007. Finally, mention must be made of the emergency aid provided on account of the Zika, chikungunya and dengue diseases in the municipality of Mejicanos, in the Department of San Salvador (El Salvador), and the healthcare intervention on the affected population in Peru by the earthquake in the districts of Ichumpa, Achoma, Yanque and Coporaque in the Arequipa region. In the heart of Africa, healthcare was also provided to the urban refugee population in Nairobi (Kenya) following the reactivation of the cholera epidemic, and an intervention was carried out to reduce health vulnerability in the face of a health threat in Mali, working stably and directly with 15 Community Health Centres and the population of the different Health Areas of the Kayes Region. And in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a country where Farmamundi has been working stably for more than a decade now, through two actions, one of which is the prevention of sexual violence and the improvement of medical and psychological care to the victims. Another action is intended to reinforce the health system in Nord Kivu and to supply fourteen health structures in the area of Oicha with generic and specific medicines, perishable health material and kits for medical aid to the victims of the emergency in the wake of the escalation of the armed conflict in the area. In 2017, and due to the situation of urgent need, priority is being given to healthcare and food aid to refugee families in the Shalila and Burj El-Barajneh camps in the Lebanon and to the refugee and forced-migration population in different border areas of Serbia with Bulgaria, Hungary and Croatia, among other interventions.
