Fountain: The Beauty Molecule
This week will see the launch of new anti-ageing elixir, Fountain. Sold exclusively in Boots, Elixir is a resveratrol-infused, pomegranate flavoured supplement drink, priced at £24.99 for 250 ml. It is taken as a 5 ml shot, daily, or mixed with juice or other liquid. Resveratrol, commonly found in grapes, is a natural compound which has well-documented anti-inflammitory and anti-ageing effects on the skin. Now, you can take advantage of these properties without cracking open a bottle of red.
While cosmetics have been infused with resveratrol for years, the evidence pointed to benefits when the ingredient is taken internally. Although many cosmetics will boast of their vitamin and mineral content, there is often less evidence of efficacy in cosmetics use because the ingredients may not be able to penetrate the skin. When they do make a difference, it is often the case that it is in a time-limited, surface way. Fountain overcomes this by introducing a water-soluble resveratrol to be taken orally.
Fountain launches on Wednesday 7 August. At time of writing, it is available on 3 for 2 offer online.
