Resveratrol

A new type of active ingredient, Resveratrol is a chemical compound naturally found in certain plants. Known as a Phytoalexin due to its ability to fight off bacteria and fungi in plants, it has been included in skin care because it is thought to be a powerful antioxidant that can prolong the life of skin cells.

It is often used in anti-aging products as it can keep cells younger for longer, resulting in a more youthful appearance. It can be found in anti-aging face creams and serums, and naturally in grapes, raspberries, blueberries and cranberries.
