‘Clean’ brands tend to be younger and newer to market and thus don’t usually invest the large amount of funds needed to clinically trial products to prove results in an independent lab. Not us; we are firmly committed to do this as the clean, organic and natural sector has to prove it works. As we grow the brand, we will grow the investment into clinical testing as a priority but below are our test results so far!
Lab tests on individual ingredients
Clinical study on 30 people 18- 65 who presented heavy legs/ oedema.
15 people- tested with gel with 2% V Tonic others had the leading product on market containing 4% hamamelis and 1% vibrurnum.
80% testing V tonic said they felt immediate effects - double than with the other.
Efficacy with high intensity – 23% compared to 0% for the other.
IMMEDIATE PAIN RELIEF
Efficacy with high intensity – 25% compared to 0% for the other.
Immediately after application the formula with V tonic was felt to be more efficient and to be of a higher intensity for coolness, relaxing feeling and pain relief.
LONG TERM study- 28 days. Clinical trial on a longer term shows the V tonic formula gave better results for decreasing functional discomfort from the feeling of heavy legs and the associated pain.
Clinical trials and consumer tests show V tonic produces from 1st application and intense feeling of coolness and relaxation and considerably attenuates pain leading to an overall feeling of wellbeing. After 4 weeks of application there is a significant efficacy on the various symptoms associated with heavy legs.
Your skin should feel an intense feeling of coolness and relaxation almost as soon as you apply the gel.
The cooling effect can product some redness (erythema) as blood works its way to the surface to aid with recovery of sore muscles and heat regulation.
