History of Merlot Skin Care
His friends call him Dr. Grapes, others often refer to him as Mr. Merlot. With a background in chemistry and a long dedication to health and wellness, Wayne Beckley created the breakthrough natural grape seed-based Merlot Skin Care line.
More than 12 years ago while watching the TV program 60 Minutes, Wayne Beckley first learned of “the French Paradox” – a report on people in France who consumed diets heavy in saturated fat, but who seemed to suffer virtually no heart disease. The report linked the findings to the drinking of red wine.
Intrigued, Beckley chronicled over 70 research studies that indicated that drinking a couple glasses of red wine each day could be beneficial in warding off certain cancers and lowering cholesterol in the body. The reason: the antioxidants found in red grapes. Investigating further, Beckley found studies revealing the grape’s true power, their seeds. Research studies have shown that grape seed antioxidants are 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E and nearly 25 times more powerful than Vitamin C.
In 2001 Beckley launched Merlot Skin Care, utilizing the power of red grape seeds in each unique formulation. Harnessing nature’s most powerful antioxidants, Merlot products work to protect skin against the signs of aging and to fight free radicals – the harmful molecules caused by smoke, smog, pollution, stress, and UV rays. From his first experiments in the garage to today, Beckley has built Merlot into a powerful line. Merlot Skin Care products have been praised for their high quality formulations and tremendous value. The real secret? It’s in the seed!
In 2011 Merlot Skin Care was named a “Breakout Brand” by Global Cosmetics International. Today Merlot Skin Care is a trusted brand for professional make-up artists and models and is recommended by dermatologists. Merlot’s good-for-you philosophy maintains that customers can look like a million bucks without spending that much.
All Merlot products are cruelty-free and made in the USA.
Merlot Skin Care is owned and operated by the Beckley family.
“I created the Merlot Skin Care line to be powerful, effective, and affordable. The anti-aging formulas are designed to be gentle, but offer a huge amount of protection thanks to the grape seed antioxidants.” — Wayne Beckley
