Resveratrol is a polyphenol found in many plants.
A multi-functional active ingredient, it is particularly prized for its dual anti-oxidant action. In fact, resveratrol protects cells from free radicals while stimulating their production of antioxidants. By capturing free radicals and preventing them from doing any harm, resveratrol prevents them from accelerating the natural aging of the epidermis.

Resveratrol also has other interesting properties in cosmetics: thanks to its antibacterial and sebum-regulating properties, it is an ideal ally in the fight against acne. As a soothing agent, it reduces skin inflammation.
Finally, resveratrol plays a role in combating hyperpigmentation by regulating the activity of tyrosinase, an enzyme essential to the melanogenesis process.
