Polyphenols are plant-derived molecules with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and cardiovascular health-protective properties. They are mainly found in fruit (grapes, persimmons, red berries), tea, dark chocolate and wine.

Polyphenols act on several levels in skin cells to prevent and inhibit the action of free radicals (tobacco, sun, pollution...), responsible for accelerated skin aging and the appearance of wrinkles.
Polyphenols also stimulate the production of certain endogenous antioxidant enzymes, reinforcing their effectiveness in the fight against oxidative stress.

Finally, polyphenols also boost the production of elastin and collagen, responsible for the skin's firmness, elasticity and hydration, and whose production declines with age. They are therefore powerful allies in slowing the appearance of the signs of aging.
