French skincare brand Caudalie has released a new anti-ageing range of products that comes with Harvard Medical School’s stamp of approval.

The improved Resveratrol-Lift line was created from a partnership between Caudalie founder Mathilde Thomas and the school’s Dr David Sinclair, an acclaimed biologist who specialises in the science of ageing.

They patented a new combination of ingredients, adding vegan collagen booster to the existing formula of vine resveratrol and hyaluronic acid, which is also patented.

A known anti-ageing antioxidant, resveratrol can be found in grape skin – a tribute to Caudalie’s roots, which originated in a vineyard in France. The new recipe is said to be twice as effective as retinol and to help the skin produce five times the amount of natural collagen.

The Resveratrol-Lift range comprises the Instant Firming Serum ($98), Firming Night Cream ($84), Lightweight Firming Cashmere ($82) day cream and Firming Eye Gel-Cream ($79).

All the products have fully recyclable packaging – a first for the brand.
