Why Resveratrol Is The Best Skincare Ingredient For Eye Cream

The skin around the eyes is the thinnest on the face and most vulnerable to signs of ageing and damage such as wrinkles, fine lines, loss of firmness and elasticity. An eye cream with resveratrol as the active ingredient helps prevent and reverse skin ageing. Resveratrol is a well-studied super antioxidant extracted from the skin of red grapes, berries or peanuts.

Why Resveratrol is the best skincare ingredient for eye cream

1. Resveratrol is up to 17 times more powerful than commonly-known antioxidants.

Studies have showed that resveratrol is an extremely potent antioxidant with excellent anti-inflammatory properties. The antioxidative properties of resveratrol is more powerful than those of vitamin A, C, E, catechin in tea, epicatechin in cocoa, gallocatechin in adzuki beans, gallic acid in blueberries and ellagic acid in pomegranates. A clinical data indicated that resveratrol has 17 times greater antioxidant activities than idebenone, the ingredient used in some skincare products.

2. Resveratrol decreases the degradation of collagen and elastin in the skin.

The antioxidant and anti-inflammation effects of resveratrol have been shown to decrease the degradation of collagen and elastin in the skin. The skin around the eyes is lacking in collagen and elastin; therefore, an eye cream with resveratrol can be very effective in slowing down and preventing the loss of skin firmness and elasticity.

3. Resveratrol improves skin matrix.

Studies showed that resveratrol stimulates the production of collagen type 1 and 3 in the skin. It improves skin matrix, restores density, compactness and firmness on the eye area.

4. Resveratrol prevents photoageing.

Studies confirmed that resveratrol helps prevent photoageing and skin inflammation while also reduces UV-induced wrinkles and brightens skin tone.
