Since 1998, Actichem, a French family company, has been developing and producing natural active ingredients from grapevine extracts: monomers and oligomers of Resveratrol. We have patented a unique extraction process of Resveratrol and its derivatives from vine shoots and vine roots. Our high quality and sustainably produced ingredients are manufactured in France using renewable raw materials harvested exclusively in the famous French vineyards. Actichem’s extracts are 100% natural, GMO-, paraben- and allergen-free, vegan and not tested on animals. Sourcing only local, natural resources, the company extracts its active ingredients from parts of the vine that are often considered as waste.
We have developed three ingredients targeting a range of skin and beauty products which have undergone different technical and clinical studies proving their efficiency:
- RESVERATROX®: Healthy aging and anti-pollution
- VITISIN®: reduction of age spots
- VINIFEROL®: slimming and anti-cellulite
Actichem has launched RESVERATROX® SD, an active ingredient made of Resveratrol derivatives extracted from French grapevines which is water soluble making it easy to formulate. Efficacy tests have proven healthy aging benefits of our RESVERATROX® range: particularly efficient anti-pollution properties and a stronger antioxidant activity than Resveratrol in keratinocytes at low doses. Clinical studies on our range have also shown a reduction of wrinkle depth and rejuvenating properties.
