Vitis Vinifera Fruit Water description

_Vitis vinifera_ (grape) fruit water is recognized as a skin-conditioning ingredient. It is an aqueous solution obtained via distillation from grapes. Generally speaking, grapes offer a wide range of antioxidants and other beneficial compounds for skin. To get the highest potency of those compounds, it’s best to seek out _Vitis vinifera_ in its seed extract or oil form (those forms have more research backing their benefits for skin). The 2014 Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel concluded that _Vitis vinifera_ (grape) fruit water is safe for cosmetic use. According to suppliers of this ingredient, it can be used at a 100% concentration directly on skin. Their claims include skin-nourishing, moisturizing, and soothing properties. In skin care formulations, fruit waters may be used to partially or completely replace the water content.
