Optihealth Inc Co-Brands with ActiVin® from San Joaquin Valley Concentrates Inc.

2006-11-13 – Mississauga, Ontario. Optihealth Inc. has signed a trademark license agreement with San Joaquin Valley Concentrates enabling them to include the ActiVint® grape seed extract brand in marketing its Beauty Formula product.
Over the past two years, more than 90 scientific publications, abstracts and presentations have shown that ActiVin® possesses a wide range of antioxidant, chemoprotective and biological properties. The ingredient is manufactured using a patented natural extraction process. (Patent # 5,912,363) This process involves a hot water extraction of polyphenolic compounds (OPCs) from dry grape seeds. After a rigorous review process ActiVin® grape seed extract earned GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) approval by both Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association (FEMA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
“Adding ActiVin® to our best selling product was a natural choice” said Jorge Romero, President of Optihealth Inc. “It is the most researched grape seed extract brand in the market and provides more antioxidant power than vitamins C, E or beta-carotene. It is just a perfect fit for the formulation” he concluded.
Phil Castro, Extract Manager at San Joaquin Valley Concentrates observes: “we are very pleased with our collaboration with innovative companies like Optihealth Inc. It will allow us to reach consumers in Canada’s demanding market”.
