Caudalie’s story starts in France at the heart of a vineyard with a husband and wife. They believe the vine of grapes contain exceptional powers for the skin and are used throughout the Caudalie brand. The vine naturally produces resveratrol to defend itself and provides powerful antioxidant benefits for the skin. In fact, Caudalie pioneered the use and benefits of resveratrol in skin care. Resveratrol is a natural antioxidant. Resveratrol is found in high amount in the skins of grapes and in red wine. It may stop the growth of cancer cells topically as well as internally (when resveratrol is taken internally). It also reduces inflammation in blood vessels, improves blood vessel function and keeps platelets from clumping together to form clots that could lead to a heart attack or stroke.
Because it is an antioxidant that protects cells against oxidative damage and a compound that reduces inflammation, resveratrol offers anti-aging skin benefits. Oxidative damage primarily due to sun exposure is one reason for skin aging. Free radicals produced by exposure to oxygen and sunlight damage collagen and activate enzymes that break down collagen and elastin, another protein important for youthful skin. Research suggests that resveratrol is a more potent antioxidant than idebenone, a leading pharmaceutical antioxidant. You can find resveratrol in many Caudalie facial moisturizers, eye creams and anti-aging serums. A few of our favorite Caudalie products are Vinexpert Firming Serum and Premier Cru the Cream.
