The story

The flower of vine, a delicate but decisive flower

Vitis vinifera, Vitaceae

The flower of vine is a very tiny, flavouring flower, about 3 to 4 mm long, and hermaphrodite. But it is decisive: vine, and therefore wine, depend completely from its development and its pollination. Rich in polyphenols - especially flavonoids, vine has been used for many proprieties as anti-oxidating, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory. In Ancient times the flower of vine was associated with earth celebrations and organised for a divinity, the Greek and Roman goddess of flowering: Flora.

Because skin can be irritated at any time by several environmental factors or be intolerant a short time, it is necessary to limit the uncomfortable sensations that it creates while maintaining its part as a barrier. In order to «never feel that we have» a skin.

How it works ?

Fragile Vitis Flower provides a regulation of the mediators of inflammation, that are molecules synthetised by keratinocyts in response to external aggressions - but that give a sensation of irritation - by decreasing their release in the skin. Fragile Vitis Flower limits also the production of free radicals induced by UV and the physiological lipoperoxidation, that drive not only the suppression of immune defenses inside cells but also the release of mediators.

Thanks to those two actions, skin is free from sensations of irritations and better protected. It can keep on fighting against daily aggressions and oxidations.
