Grape skin extracts contain several types of polyphenol molecules, including resveratrol, phenolic acids, anthocyanins, and flavonoids. Through their antioxidant effects, grape polyphenols help to slow down and prevent cell damage caused by oxidation.
Antioxidants counteract free radical molecules and reduce oxidative stress, preventing cellular damage to skin. They are therefore fundamental in fighting the negative effects of ageing and are responsible for protecting and improving the overall appearance of the skin.
Resveratrol is part of a group of compounds called polyphenols that are potent natural antioxidants found in the skin of grapes (also in peanuts, berries, and dark chocolate). Its anti-inflammatory action makes it a key component to rejuvenate and restore youthful looking skin, and it has become an ingredient loved by the global beauty industry.
