Produced in Southern France by Grap’Sud, our Grape Seed Extract is obtained through a natural extraction process that preserves the active anti-oxidative properties of the seed without need for a carrier. Traceable from vine to finished product, our seeds come from grapes sourced exclusively from the Champagne wine region of France. This high-quality raw material is then standardised to guaranteed polyphenol and oligomeric procyanidin content.
Highly concentrated in grape seed, oligomeric procyanidins (or OPCs) are phenolic compounds with exceptional anti-oxidant properties. Anti-free radical activity (measured through ORAC value) is significantly more potent in our Grape Seed Extract when compared to those found in even Vitamin E and C - two of the most powerful and soundly researched skincare ingredients to date. The exceptional anti-oxidant capacity of Grape Seed Extract and OPCs has been shown to help protect against oxidative stress, tissue damage and inflammation.
