the amazing grape

Inflammation is a key initiator for many of the conditions that we at PCA SKIN are working to improve.  The topical use of anti-inflammatory
antioxidants is important in this quest for healthy skin.  This unassuming fruit provides us with many powerful antioxidant ingredients.  Here are just a few:

Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract is rich in polyphenols and proanthocyanidins, which are powerful antioxidants that fight free radicals and improve circulation.  It has been shown to assist in cell regeneration and strengthen capillaries.  Grape seed extract also contains the potent antioxidant resveratrol.

Resveratrol is a phytoalexin from red grape skins.  Phytoalexins are polyphenols that function as a plant’s protective mechanism against harsh conditions. It is a strong antioxidant and is excellent for controlling acute and chronic inflammation.  Resveratrol is also an MMPI that prevents the production os cyclooxygenase (COX), a key enzyme in the inflammatory response.

Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil has a high concentration of polyphenols as well as the essential fatty acid (EFA) linoleic acid.  It is used frequently as a light occlusive agent. This oil is beneficial for acne patients because of its EFA content. The skin of acne patients is typically deficient in EFAs and this deficiency leads to an increase in sebum production.  By topically supplementing EFAs, acne can be improved.

  1. I recently took the skin biology and peel fundamentals two day course. I had a chance to use age control dry skin solution for a couple of weeks beforehand and I absolutely saw results within that small amount of time! I’m so excited to start using PCA Skin within my esthetics practice! Your training is excellent, your products fabulous and I love how I can ship the products to my clients directly from you! This allows me to only need to carry the trial size solutions since my space is small and cozy! Thank you PCA Skin! I look forward to working with you for years to come!

    • Thanks so much for your comment, Brooke. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your training experience and that you are seeing results from the products. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with you!
