Grape Seed Extract has been a recent trend in the skin care market over the last few years. What is Grape Seed Extract? It is an antioxidant which is extracted from seeds of grapes and is believed to reduce premature aging effects of sunlight, cigarette smoke, and pollution. As skin care experts began to read studies about the great benefits of eating grapes and drinking wine, they used this idea and applied it to skin care products.
Experts claim it enhances the effects of other antioxidants like Vitamin E, C and Beta Carotene which boost the skin’s defense against aging. Grape Seed Extract is said to increase elasticity and promote healthy skin growth. It also acts as an alpha hydroxy acid which helps to exfoliate and improve skin tone.
Here are few products that contain Grape Seed Extracts:
Uvavita Hydrating Body Lotion, a silky body moisturizer made with grapeseed oil, seaweed, chamomile, and aloe vera. Davi Le Grand Cru, a luxurious face cream packed with shea butter, rosemary, green tea, grape seed extracts, and vitamin E. Or Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum, a brightening serum which lightens age spots, stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, and is made not only with grape seed extract, but the exotic honeysuckle flower extract.
