Pycnogenol 5% is a powerful antioxidant derived from the bark of French maritime pine trees that contains naturally-occurring procyanidins, bioflavonoids and organic acids that help maintain healthy levels of collagen and hyaluronic acid within the skin, resulting in enhanced hydration and elasticity.
Perfect for those wanting to enhance skin hydration and elasticity, The Ordinary’s Pycnogenol 5% binds to collagen and elastin, protecting them from free radical damage and enzymatic degradation. While doing so, this magical antioxidant also scavenges the skin for free radicals before they cause oxidative stress and has the ability to recycle oxidised Vitamin C, restoring its activity.
Apply alone or after water-based serums, before oils or heavier creams. Alternatively, mix with other treatments to enhance their antioxidant capacity significantly. If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Keep out of reach of children.
