Wayne Beckley, lovingly known as Mr Merlot created a unique natural grape seed-based Merlot Skin Care line. He got the idea when he watched 60 minutes which featured the benefits of red wine for the French in warding off heart disease. He then chronicled over 70 research studies on wine and found that the true power is in the grape seeds. The studies he researched showed that grape seed antioxidants are 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E and almost 25 times more powerful than Vitamin C. In 2011, Global Cosmetics International named Merlot Skin Care a ∫Breakout Brand. The company is based in Texas and formulates without parabens and does not test on animals.
