Vinotherapy: what is it?
Vinotherapy is a treatment that exploits the benefits and properties of specific substances contained in grapes.
Detoxifying, antioxidant, tonic and aesthetic bioactivator: these are just some of the benefits of wine that have spread its use as an ingredient of beauty.
Vinotherapy: its origins
The origin of the wine-based treatments has its roots in very distant times: it seems that already Cleopatra and Lucrezia Borgia, although not knowing the polyphenols and their antioxidant properties, kept these secrets of beauty.
Vinotherapy, as an aesthetic treatment, was born in France, particularly in the Bordeaux area, where it has never happened in Europe.
It was the meeting between Mathilde Cathiard, daughter of the owners of the Chateaux Haut-Lafitte vineyards, and the professor Joseph Vercauteren, researcher specialized in the study of polyphenols, a challenge to the first line of cosmetic products that make the antioxidant and anti-aging properties of Grapes.
Vinotherapy: the benefits
If the grape is famous for its antioxidant capacity – thanks to the high content of polyphenols – it is equally true that the beneficial effects of wine are not limited to the fight against time.
The vine, together with the grapes, is in fact used in the treatment of skin blemishes, for the improvement of blood microcirculation, for the fight against cholesterol, for liver and intestinal purification and much more.
Specifically, the seeds of the grapes are rich in calcium, phosphorus, polyphenols and flavonoids, thus developing a moisturizing, smoothing and antioxidant jacket.
