Ingredient Science

Reservatol

Featured in Sheer Hydration Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40 & Clear Shield Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 42

 

Commonly derived either from grape seeds or the Japanese knotweed plant, this polyphenol antioxidant neutralises free radical damage, protecting the skin from sun damage, reducing cell damage and improving collagen synthesis. Resveratrol also has anti-inflammatory properties by inhibiting inflammatory markers including cox-2 and interleukins.

 

Resveratrol inhibits P. acnes bacteria.
