Holland & Barrett 

Pycnogenol is a natural plant extract derived from the bark of the French maritime pine tree (Pinus pinaster). Known for its potent antioxidant properties, Pycnogenol is used to support cardiovascular health, enhance skin elasticity, and reduce inflammation.  It has been proven to lighten over-pigmented skin, resulting in brighter skin complexion.

This clever ingredient also contributes to reversing photo-ageing. Exposure of skin to energetic light, especially UV radiation, exacerbates skin ageing processes. A number of clinical trials have demonstrated that Pycnogenol significantly contributes to photo-protection. And whilst it’s not suggested to replace adequate skin-protective measures in situations of intense sun exposure, when taken as daily dietary supplement, Pycnogenol provides potent photo-protective effects from inside the skin.
