Grape Seed – Your Natural Antioxidant

Grape Seed – Your Natural Antioxidant

Grape seed extract is considered to be one of the most effective natural skin care ingredients available. A natural byproduct of the equally popular wine industry, it provides a wide range of benefits to all skin types helping with reducing oxidization and increasing the suppleness of skin.

Grape seed extract has been carefully studied by biochemists and physicians to confirm these properties, and in fact, the more it is researched the more benefits are discovered! Grape seed extract is now accepted as a compound which protects, heals and beautifies skin.

What are the Benefits of Grape Seed?

Grape seed contains flavonoids believed to act as the pigment in plants, and it’s suggested that the purpose of flavonoids in grapes are to protect the plant and its seeds from the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation and oxidation. When applied to your skin the properties of the grape seed still provide strong antioxidant benefits, binding with free radicals and protecting your skin from premature aging and damage caused within the cells.

Found inside Grape seed (and used in many beauty products) is also the chemical Resveratrol, which when massaged into the skin helps to protect and repair. Grape seed extract also acts as a mild alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), which works in a variety of ways to nourish and strengthen the skin; helping to remove dead skin cells, improving the condition of the skin (particularly the collagen and elastin structures) and helping to keep the skin firm and youthful in appearance. AHA also improves the moisture barrier of skin cells, which allows them to accept and retain necessary moisture so that they remain healthy.

So if you’re looking for a naturally sourced ingredient in your skincare which offers protection from environmental damage and premature ageing, grape seed is it.
