GSP-T for skin

More than an antioxidant

About GSP-T for skin

GSP-T is a powerful antioxidant complex combining water-soluble Swiss grape seed procyanidins and oil-soluble natural tocopherol. Procyanidins are potent antioxidants and free radical scavengers that are found in high concentrations in Swiss Pinot Noir grapes.

When combined with tocopherol (an antioxidant that is naturally present in the skin) the result is a synergistic effect and therefore an increased antioxidant activity.

Proven Efficacy

  • Inhibits lipid peroxidation

  • Synergistic antioxidant effect of tocopherol and procyanidins

  • Inhibits the glycation process

  • Inhibits the activity of pro-inflammatory mediators

  • Immediate soothing effect

  • Increases UV-tolerance

  • In vivo study

  • In vitro study

Claim Ideas

  • Protects skin cells against oxidative stress
  • Fights free radicals
  • Prevents environmental damage
  • Soothes stressed skin and reduces redness
  • Prevents skin aging by fighting glycation reaction

Plant Source

GSP-T for Skin

Grapes (Vitis vinifera) and in particular the red species such as Pinot Noir are extremely rich in procyanidins, which are mostly located in the seeds. Originating from Burgundy in France, the Pinot Noir grape has been cultivated since the first century to make the Burgundy and Champagne wines. For GSP-T, Pinot Noir grapes from Swiss plantations were used. They contain comparably higher amounts of procyanidins because of the altitude, the cool and dry climate and the chalky soils.
