Transform your skin with The Ordinary Pycnogenol 5%, a high-potency, plant-derived antioxidant that will rejuvenate dehydrated and tired looking skin, nourishing it from the inside out.
Derived from the pine bark of French maritime pine trees, The Ordinary Pycnogenol 5% contains procyanidins, bioflavonoids and organic acids that help to enhance skin hydration and elasticity. This clever antioxidant can selectively bind to collagen and elastin and protects these proteins from degrading and therefore nourishing the skin from within so that it glows with health on the outside!
Pycnogenol will actively seek free radicals before they can cause damage by oxidative stress and is also able to recycle oxidised vitamin C to restore its effectiveness. It absorbs into the skin in just a few minutes and has a deep red colour due to the high procyanidin content.
