Resveratrol (3,5,4'-trihydroxystillbene), a polyphenolic antixoidant found in grapes and red wine, blocks UVB-mediated activation of the factor NFkappy-B, and this is the mechanism of protection against photocarcinogensis. Resveratrol could be useful in the treatment of skin conditions including fungal infection and diabetic wounds.
Resveratrol has been shown to have many beneficial effects on human health, and the possible connection between resveratrol and calorie restricted diets in extending life was a minor aspect of the research into the mechanism of resveratrol action. Plant polyphenols like resveratrol benefit the skin with anti-inflammatory and wound healing activity through their interaction with growth factor receptors (and the cytoplasmic and nuclear pathways these receptors control) rather than through direct redox properties.
