Our active ingredients
Our active ingredients are exclusively harvested in the famous French vineyards.
We extract our quality ingredients from two parts of the plant Vitis Vinifera: vine shoots and vine roots. These are often considered as waste. Around 2% of vines are renewed annually, so we collect vine roots during harvest time; Vine shoots are pruned every year in winter.
Actichem extracts are 100% natural (INCI name: Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Vine Extract/ Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Root Extract). They are then standardized in inulin, butylene glycol, propanediol, glycerin or maltodextrin to obtain the final product.
Our products are composed of Resveratrol and its derivatives (monomers and oligomers such as Viniferin, Vitisins and more). These molecules are present in the vine to protect it from external attacks and are well-known and used in various fields such as cosmetics and nutraceuticals for their outstanding multiple benefits.
