Pycnogenol 5% offers an oil-like formula that helps support your skin against the impact of oxidative stress. Incorporating an exclusive French maritime pine bark extract, this vibrant serum aims to brighten skin and is a deep red color due to the high antioxidant (procyanidins) content. It works to protect your skin from the visible effects of damage caused by environmental aggressors.

Note: Pycnogenol® is known to support the antioxidant activity of ascorbic acid, making this formula an ideal accompaniment to regimens that already incorporate vitamin C.
