A remarkable antioxidant extracted from the bark of the French maritime pine, Pycnogenol® has been shown to be 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E and 20 times more effective than Vitamin C in neutralizing free radicals that cause age damage to the skin. Therefore, this powerful antioxidant helps fight and reduce the visible signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Pycnogenol® also helps stabilize the capillary system and increase skin’s resistance to irritation making it an ideal ingredient for those who have red, easily irritated, sensitive skin or who suffer from the symptoms of rosacea and other inflammatory skin conditions. Additionally, Pycnogenol® works to improve circulation, therefore helping to reduce puffiness or swelling.
Because of Pycnogenol®’s various benefits to skin including anti-aging, calming and supporting red, easily irritated, sensitive skin, and helping improve circulation, you will find this unique antioxidant in our Soothing and Age-Defying lines, eye crèmes, hand and body lotions and treatment products such as our Intensive Therapy Foot Crème.
