It’s been called the best anti-aging molecule by Harvard’s Department of Medicine, and has been talked about by the beloved (and quite knowledgeable) Dr. Oz on multiple occasions. Even so, many people have never even heard of resveratrol, much less understand how it works. Luckily, I have the scoop on resveratrol and all its anti-aging benefits, and I can’t wait to share the information with you!
Despite being in use since the late ’90s, resveratrol has only recently taken center stage in the world of skin care ingredients. Its incredible ability to reduce wrinkles, stimulate cellular turnover and increase collagen and elastin production makes resveratrol a must-have ingredient in today’s anti aging products. To fully wrap your head around resveratrol’s health and anti-aging benefits, think about this for a while: resveratrol is believed by many scientists to be the reason why the French (who consume a healthy amount of resveratrol-rich red wine – go France!) have amazingly low incidences of heart disease and often live longer, healthier lives than those who only drink wine on occasion. It has also been studied as a way to achieve life extension, cancer prevention, radiation protection, neurodegenerative disease protection and athletic endurance. Pretty amazing!
Resveratrol is found in grapevines. In fact, it is resveratrol that allows grapevines to live throughout several centuries. The skin care brand Caudalie discovered the anti-aging benefits of this exceptional ingredient in 1997, and acquired the exclusive patent on the extraction and stabilization of grapevine resveratrol in 1999. Resveratrol is one of the most precious active ingredients found in anti aging skincare products – it takes one ton of vine shoots to extract only one kilogram of resveratrol!
So, how does resveratrol improve your aging skin conditions? In clinical studies, resveratrol performed amazingly well. It created a denser and firmer skin texture while boosting the life expectancy of the skin cells by a whopping 160%. It stimulates cellular renewal, enhances the skin’s support system (collagen and elastin) and improves the multiplication of fibroblasts. After only six days, patients using Caudalie products experienced skin with double the thickness. After 28 days, deep wrinkles were reduced by 24%. These incredible results work together to achieve a truly younger-looking complexion that exhibits a healthy tone and attractive texture.
Now that you know a little more about resveratrol, I’m sure you’re checking your anti aging creams for this sensational ingredient. Well, I wasn’t kidding when I said that it’s one of the most precious active ingredients used in anti aging skin care! Very few brands are able to use resveratrol, making it difficult to obtain. Luckily for you, DermStore carries Caudalie, the very brand that discovered resveratrol in the first place! Their Vinexpert line features resveratrol, as well as many other highly beneficial botanicals and scientifically advaned ingredients, making it the perfect range to fight against visible signs of skin aging.
