Does DoSe by VH replace Garden of Wisdom?
DoSe by VH is a natural evolution of Garden of Wisdom and we are confident that the DoSe by VH products will exceed your expectations, delivering a heightened level of quality and efficacy.  The DoSe serums and oils have been meticulously formulated, and in some cases reformulated by Shabir Daya MRPharmS, our co-founder who originally formulated GOW.  While some formulations share the same INCI, we searched for and incorporated the optimal iterations of each, guaranteeing an enhanced quality.  Not all ingredients are created equally and developments in formulations can change.  It gave us the opportunity to better our offer for our customers who have previously loved GOW.  We listened to the feedback from our customers regarding GOW and the bottles are now glass, which means they are also waterproof for the bathroom.  We believe in constant improvement and staying at the forefront of skincare innovation.
