Resveratrol is the hot new ingredient in the beauty world! Lately, the skin scene is a buzz with new treatments using the powerful phenol. Resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes among other fruits. The content of resveratrol is increased when fermented which causes red wine to be the most potent source. Although, there is no documented proof that Resveratrol has any effect on cardiovascular disease, cancer or metabolism; it has been proven that Resveratrol can aid with skin protection. Since oxidative stress caused by multiple factors is a major factor in aging, Resveratrol is widely sought after for its antioxidant properties. Although this is no fountain of youth, if you are looking to try this new ingredient, here are a few of our favorites:
1. Topix Replenix Power of Three Cream: Replenix Power of Three Cream and Serum contain 90% Green Tea Polyphenols, Resveratrol and Caffeine U.S.P.
Replenix Power of Three Cream is an emollient with a soy phospholipid and hyaluronic acid base, while the Power of Three Serum is a lightweight, fast-absorbing formulation in a hyaluronic acid (humectant) base. Patients can choose the formulation based on their own skin type and preferences.
The majority of patients can experience the benefits of green tea, making this a welcome addition to the practice. Oily skinned and acne patients tend to prefer the serum, while dry skinned and more mature patients prefer the cream.
2. SkinCeuticals Resveratrol B E: With age and ongoing aggression, skin accumulates excessive free radical damage and loses its efficiency to effectively repair at night. This compounded effect leads to accelerated signs of damage such of loss of radiance, elasticity, and density.
