The Magical Chardonnay Grape

Drinking wine, in moderation, has proven to help with heart health, but what about applying the same grapeseed benefits to our skin for anti-aging benefits?
History of Grapes

History of Grapes

Grapes (Vitis vinifera) have been heralded for their medicinal and nutritional value for thousands of years. Egyptians ate grapes at least 6,000 years ago, and several ancient Greek philosophers praised the healing power of grapes — usually in the form of wine. European folk healers made an ointment from the sap of grapevines to treat skin and eye diseases. Grape leaves were used to stop bleeding, inflammation, and pain, such as the kind brought on by hemorrhoids. Unripe grapes were used to treat sore throats, and dried grapes (raisins) were used for constipation and thirst. Round, ripe, sweet grapes were used to treat a range of health problems including cancer, cholera, smallpox, nausea, eye infections, and skin, kidney, and liver diseases.
But grapes — or the chemicals within them, especially oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes (OPCs) — have been touted as powerful antioxidants. Some people believe they could help treat a number of conditions, from heart disease to cancer to aging skin, although scientific evidence is mostly lacking for those conditions. However, there is good evidence that grape seed extract can help treat chronic venous insufficiency and edema.
Fruit acids have become the most touted ingredient in facial and body creams because of their anti-wrinkle effect. Grapes’ tartaric acid is thought to combat wrinkles by increasing skin collagen.

Let's take a look at the white chardonnay grapes used in the Chardonnay Cream

Chardonnay ~ Extracted from the seeds of the grapes of the white chardonnay in the region of Burgundy in France. Laboratory results show this chardonnay extract to be 85% more effective than most anti-age treatments!
It works on the skin by increasing collagen production, thus ‘plumping’ the skin back to normal. It also works by attacking the free radicals and decreasing their effects on your skin.
Antioxidants will neutralize free radicals, which are molecules that have become highly reactive and destructive due to contact with outside sources and stress, like pollution, sunlight, everyday stressors, and lack of sleep. Without neutralizing free radicals in our skin, they will continue to lead to the familiar signs of aging: wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and a less supple, unhealthy-looking appearance.

So, what does it MEAN to be a ‘powerful antioxidant?’ In other words, what does it DO for me?

For starters, let’s look at the definition of an antioxidant.
an•ti•ox•i•dant
A substance that removes potentially damaging oxidizing agents (free radicals) in a living organism.
Damaging oxidizing agents (also known as free radicals): damaging to our skin cells. We are exposed to free radicals every day, which is why it is SO important to use our products that are high in antioxidant properties.
So, sit back and relax with a glass of wine, Chardonnay Face Cream, and know that you’re doing the body good!
