The presence of Extract of Orange Blossom and Red Grapevine gives an astringent quality which minimizes the dilation of skin pores.
The leaves of Red Grapevine contain the following active ingredients: polyphenol derivatives such as proanthocyanidins, flavonoids, glucosides, tannins, organic acids, resveratrol, polyunsaturated fatty acids, vitamins (A, C, B1, B2, PP) and minerals (calcium, potassium, iron, copper, manganese). Polyphenols have the anti-inflammatory and protecting properties of capillaries. Anthocyanin tannins, in which this plant is rich, are from the same type as vitamin P. They have an antioxidant and protecting effect on capillary vessels. They reduce permeability and increase durability of vascular endothelial, preventing the activity of enzymes -such as elastase- which damage the supporting perivascular tissues. Resveratrol and procyanidins both have a powerful antiradical capacity. They fight against ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) which threatens tissue tone and elasticity. Extracts of Red Grapevine provide a high antioxidant-antiradical effect thus protecting skin from damage such as excessive exposure to the sun.
lt is a plant with astringent, anti-inflammatory and diuretic properties containing active ingredients including flavonoids, anthocyanins and pectins.

EXTRACT OF ORANGE BLOSSOM
An aqueous Extract of Flowers of Citrus Aurantium which enhances the endogenous defence systems of the skin. The high presence of antioxidant polyphenols protects the skin and helps to counteract damage caused by free radicals. lt has excellent toning, anti-reddening, regenerating and refreshing features.
lt is an active ingredient which has been isolateci biotechnologically from a strain of special yeast called Saccharomyces Cerevisiae. lt is rich in vitamin B1 or thiamine and promotes the processes of tissue trophism. lt has stimulating and protective properties. lt has demonstrated the ability to activate tissue regeneration through a significant increase of cellular respiration and oxygenation. lt enhances the immune response of the cells and the defence from oxidation, increasing the regenerative power of the cells.
Hydroxy acid with an action similar to glycolic acid. lt helps cell turnover and hydrates the skin surface. lt has a mild astringent action and, at high
concentrations, it is keratolytic.
