" Resveratrol, an antioxidant found in the skin of red grapes has more powerful anti-ageing effects than vitamin C, E, and A."
Resveratrol is a polyphenol naturally found in the skin of red grapes, berries, peanuts, red wine and japanese knotweed. Studies suggest that it has numerous health benefits such as reducing the risk for cancer, protecting brain cells from premature damage and slowing down the ageing process. In skincare formulation, resveratrol is used particularly to help preserve the youthfulness of the skin.
Resveratrol Protects Skin From UV Damage and Premature Ageing
Excessive UV exposure is known to cause serious damage to the skin including DNA damage that can lead to the development of cancer. UV rays trigger the formation of harmful molecules known as free radicals in your body. Free radicals can cause oxidative damage to DNA and body cells including skin cells.
Studies showed that Resveratrol is capable of neutralising free radicals and preventing oxidative damage. The antioxidant properties of Resveratrol is greater than those of vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A, catechin, epicatechin, gallocatechin, gallic acid, ellagic acid and idebenone. To protect your skin from UV damage, apply Bio-Collagen Serum to freshly-cleansed face and neck every morning and evening before moisturiser.
