Explained

Resveratrol is a famous emerging antioxidant. It is a good alternative for sensitive skin types who cannot tolerate retinoids.

This antioxidant is most famous for it's anti-aging benefits. Studies show it combats the signs of aging by:

  • Inhibiting the protein that tells cells to commit apoptosis (self collapse)
  • Reducing harmful effects of UV-B by activating superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase.
  • Protecting our cells through antioxidant activity
  • Increasing collagen production
  • Reducing the amount of cytokines, the protein responsible for inflammation

Besides anti-aging, this ingredient also helps with skin brightening and soothing.

The most effective forms of resveratrol are isobutyrate and butyrate. These have the strongest effect on increasing A1 collagen and reducing inflammation.

A note on it being a retinoid alternative: Despite it's amazing skin benefits, it is not a replacement for retinoids. However, it is recommended for people with sensitive skin or intolerance to retinoids.
