Grape fruits contain valuable from a cosmetic point of view sugars, pectin, vitamins A, B1, B2, C, tannins, tartaric and gallic acids and resveratrol.
Resveratrol has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-edema effects and delays the aging process. Sugars, on the other hand, thanks to their hygroscopic properties protect the epidermis against water loss and strongly moisturize. Numerous fruit acids present in the flesh have a gentle exfoliating effect, they also influence the regulation of sebum secretion. Polyphenols, i.e. primarily flavonoids and the aforementioned resveratrol protect the skin against external factors and free radicals, moisturize and support the absorption of other ingredients.
Grape hydrosol has an additional anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effect, and the vitamins it contains have a positive effect on improving skin tone.
