Ingredients 101: Resveratrol


WTF: Resveratrol is a plant compound found in red grape skin, peanuts, Japanese knotweed and berries.

Beauty Benefits: It's a shit hot ingredient when used in skincare as it has antioxidant properties that fight free radicals, preventing them damaging the skin and causing premature aging (wrinkles, pigmentation, sagging...all that nasty shit). Resveratrol also stimulates healthy cell reproduction and collagen synthesis, leaving skin firm and as youthful as possible.

Warnings: Resveratrol is considered safe to use topically. However, if you're preggers, speak with your doctor before using it.
