Why Grapeseed Extract? A long-used beauty secret is getting noticed

February 11, 2021

Long regarded as an ‘ancient healer,’ grapeseed oil has been known to be used by the ancient Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians for its many benefits to the human body. The oil comes from the seeds of Vitis vinifera, the botanical name for grapes, a byproduct of the leftover seeds from wine making. Today, there are thought to be over 8000 varieties of grapes developed over the years. 

One of these varieties, often considered a “secret beauty ingredient” among celebrities for its anti-aging benefits and used by old-hollywood actresses to douse their hair in it for silkier hair, and brighter highlights, is Champagne

The grapeseed extracts found in Champagne are rich in antioxidants and high amounts of omega fatty acids, minerals, and vitamins like Vitamin C and Vitamin E. This resveratrol-rich grape seed extract can improve skin’s elasticity and softness, and help maintain skin health (like on your scalp). With its microbial and antiinflammatory properties that promote hair growth while restoring the strength and shine of the follicle, it’s a crème de la crème non-comedogenic ingredient for scalp health. Add this together and you get stronger, thicker, healthier hair. Plus, less breakage and split ends—because who wants that?


Hair benefits that include:

✔ Natural Conditioning Agent

✔ Softer Hair

✔ Shinier Hair

✔ Detoxifies Hair Follicles

✔ Nourishes the Scalp 

✔ Adds Volume

✔ Promotes Hair Growth


Named an ingredient to watch in 2021, champagne grape seed extract has been at the root of Cuvée Beauty from the beginning and it’s no wonder why Champagne is one of the main ingredients in our Cuvée Complex™. Committed to uncompromising quality, we source the champagne extract from Champagne, France, recognized for its nutrient rich soil and prestigious sparkling wine. The first beauty company to hold a certificate of origin we believe we deserve the best. 

But bubbly isn’t our only ingredient. Since we’re not about throwing around buzzy claims or big-time science terms, to understand the benefits behind our products, here’s a basic breakdown of all the goodness packed inside our Cuvée Complex™.

  

CERAMIDES: This protective ingredient strengthens hair fibers, safeguards against daily chemical and UV damage (yup, your hair needs sun protection too) by reinforcing the protective lipid layer, and diminishes frizz for thicker, more resilient hair.  

 

PEA PROTEIN: These extracts fight breakage by binding to dry hair and increasing moisture and elasticity from within, leaving strands smooth and shiny while keeping color vibrant.  

 

PLATINUM EXTRACT: Colloidal platinum promotes hair health and detoxification while increasing shine. It encourages cell turnover, which regenerates cells to replace the damaged ones caused by heat damage and daily wear and tear.

 

RESVERATROL: A powerful antioxidant found in red wine, resveratrol is an antioxidant that protects hair from damage while stimulating cells for stronger hair and scalp.

 

WHITE TRUFFLE EXTRACT: A luxury oil extracted from white truffle mushrooms, it restores moisture balance to hair and scalp. It also has high amounts of Vitamin B, which is necessary for cell health.

 

The proof is in our products.

Clinical tests have shown that hair is 2x stronger, 4x smoother, and had 50% less breakage after using our shampoo and conditioning system.
