The skin works around the clock, defending itself from damage by day and repairing at night. At night skin goes into recovery mode repairing the accumulated damage and strengthening its resistance to future damage.
The skin naturally contains its own antioxidant defense system which it uses to promote this nightly repair process.
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 as loss of density, elasticity, and radiance.
Resveratrol is a potent polyphenol antioxidant found in grapes, various berries, nuts, and other plant sources.
Over the past 10 years the resveratrol molecule has garnered a reputation as the "longevity molecule." New studies show that resveratrol has potential in the biology of anti-aging skincareworking through a new antioxidant pathway of action.
Due to the natural instability of the resveratrol molecule, it is extremely difficult to formulate in meaningful, stable concentrations.
