Pycnogenol® is a natural plant extract derived from the pine 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.
The Ordinary Pycnogenol® 5% is free of artificial colours. The formula’s deep red colour is due to the high procyanidin content in Pycnogenol®.
Note: After application, please wash hands and avoid product contact with light coloured fabric as it may stain.

This was my first purchase from Coral Beauty and I must say the experience has been exemplary. Coral took all my questions over several days and shared all requisite information to put my fears to rest. I am slowly introducing this product into my routine and it may be too soon to comment on results but packaging and delivery were as promised. Product did not break me out and I am enjoying using it.
