Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract.

Grape seed extract is a great source of proanthocyanidins. Proanthocyanidins are flavonoids that protect capillary walls and inhibit the enzymes that break down collagen (collagenase), hyaluronic acid (hyaluronidase), and elastin (elastase). They are also anti-inflammatory, antihistaminic, antiallergenic, and act as major free radical scavengers.*
