Pycnogenol® is a natural plant extract derived from the pine bark of French maritime pine trees. It contains procyanidins, bioflavonoids and organic acids that work in synergy to rejuvenate the skin, with the aim of enhancing skin hydration and elasticity. With the ability to selectively bind to collagen and elastin, Pycnogenol® protects these proteins from degradation, helping to nourish the skin from the inside out. Being a unique and powerful antioxidant, Pycnogenol® scavenges for free radicals before they cause damage by oxidative stress. It can also recycle oxidized Vitamin C to restore its activity. The Ordinary Pycnogenol® 5% is free of artificial colours. The formula’s deep red colour is due to the high procyanidin content in Pycnogenol®. After application, please wash hands and avoid product contact with light coloured fabric as it may stain.

A bottle of Pycnogenol 5% Hi :-) Many of you outsmarted us and very quickly and correctly guessed what product we were launching next (even though we only posted a cryptic photo of a tree growing out of a bottle). Welcome to The Ordinary Pycnogenol 5%. Available online and in our cozy stores around the world. ⁣

⁣⁣ Pycnogenol ® is a powerful antioxidant extracted from the bark of French maritime pine trees (🌲). This powerhouse ingredient contains naturally-occurring procyanidins, bioflavonoids and organic acids that synergistically help maintain healthy levels of collagen and hyaluronic acid within the skin, resulting in enhanced hydration and elasticity. Due to its high affinity for collagen and elastin, Pycnogenol ® is able to selectively bind to and protect these vital proteins from free radical damage and enzymatic degradation. While doing so, it also scavenges the skin for free radicals before they cause oxidative stress and has the ability to recycle oxidised Vitamin C, restoring its activity. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

It's generally offered at a very low concentration, so of course, we wanted to offer it at a very high concentration. At 5%, 1-2 drops will suffice for the full face. Use once daily for the maintenance of healthy skin.
