Marks & Spencer healthcare range sourced from Chapel Down grapes

Marks and Spencer have launched an anti-ageing cream using grape pulp left over from our harvest at Chapel Down.

The range of five anti-ageing products use reservatrol, a bi-product of wine production derived from the skins of red wine grapes.  During our wine production, the pulp is removed from the crushed, juiced grapes and manufactured locally in to a beauty product.

Marks & Spencer worked with a leading UK university to develop the range, stating that grape extracts have “protective anti-ageing properties and are a potent anti-oxidant.”  For further details on the range, visit the Marks & Spencer website.
