New Cream Uses Surplus Grapes
A beauty company has found a use for all those surplus wine grapes. A French company Remensis uses surplus grapes from champagne vineyards to create a skin cream that retails at $130 per jar. They aren't the first to use grapes, companies like Lancome and Caudalie, which has a whole line of Vinotherapie products, have used grape seed extracts for years. Grape seeds contain polyphenols which help fight free radicals and aging. Remesis uses the whole grape. The product is seasonal since the grapes are bought after harvest and will be a limited line.
