Life Extension Cosmesis Skin Care Resveratrol Anti-Oxidant Serum 1 oz
Neutralizes Free Radicals Dermatologist Formulated In recent years, scientists have focused intensely on the many benefits of resveratrol supplements in supporting a healthy life span. Now cutting-edge dermatologists have uncovered the singular power of topical resveratrol to combat the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and other effects of skin aging. Plants evolved resveratrol to defend against stress, infection, and the harsh, damaging effects of daylong exposure to the sun’s destructive ultraviolet rays. The interaction of oxygen and sunlight generates an enormous volume of free radicals, gradually dehydrating and destroying the surface of plant’s skin. It turns out that human skin is highly receptive to resveratrol’s quenching action—especially the outer layer known as the epidermis, where the visible effects of aging are most apparent. Resveratrol effectively neutralizes intense free radical activity. Scientific analysis has shown that topical resveratrol quenches free radicals at 95% efficiency, compared to 65% for vitamin E and 37% for vitamin C. Resveratrol is just one of approximately 8,000 plant-based compounds known as polyphenols. To complement its beautifying effects on aging skin, a selection of high potency tea polyphenols is included in the new Resveratrol Antioxidant Serum formula. Black, green, and white tea extracts have been shown to preserve youthful skin tone and luster through their antioxidant activity. Also featured is the Aspalathus linearis herb found only in a mountainous region of South Africa. Although called “red tea” in the West, it is actually an herb. It happens to be one of the only sources of aspalathin, a potent antioxidant polyphenol whose distinct molecular structure complements the free radical–neutralizing action of resveratrol and tea polyphenols.
