The Ordinary Pycnogenol 5%
The Ordinary Pycnogenol 5% is a high-potency, plant-derived antioxidant serum.
Why We Love It
This protective serum gives skin instant radiance and reduces dullness, pigmentation, redness and signs of ageing. If you're looking for a product to boost the efficacy of your vitamin C product, this is an excellent option!
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.
Note: Supplied in UV-protective packaging.
