Jake Myara, the founder and president of VINEVIDA, had a childhood dream to be a doctor and decided to pursue a medical career.
While completing his degree at Johns Hopkins University, he discovered the many uses of essential oils until it became his life and business.
After completing his undergraduate studies, he moved back to Miami and partnered up with Shaul Levy, who was running the e-commerce division at INGEAR Fashions Inc.
Together, they shared a vision to disrupt the EO industry by providing the same pure EOs at an unprecedented rate. While many in the industry operate as an MLM, VV’s sales focus is buying products directly from farmers and selling directly to consumers, effectively cutting out all the (middleman) in-between parties.
Fast forward three years, and VV has over 60 oils sourced from over 40 countries and is constantly increasing the selection in their catalog. All oils are batch tested for purity and filled in-house to avoid any possible contamination.
VV gladly provides free shipping to all US customers no matter the size of the order ‒ an uncommon practice in the industry.
