Horphag’s maritime pine-bark extract already has a long history in the personal care market. And now, given beauty makers’ current interest in all things related to trees and oceans, the company could see even greater interest in Pycnogenol.

At in-cosmetics Global this month, Cosmetics Design spoke with with Sebastien Bornet, VP of global sales and marketing at Horphag Research to learn more about the attributes, benefits, and sourcing of this unique ingredient.

“There’s already a lot of data, a lot of clinical trials made on Pycnogenol for various applications,”​ notes Bornet, in his interview with Cosmetics Design editor Deanna Utroske. And later on he highlights that “Pycnogenol has 4 very important properties: First of all, it’s a very powerful antioxidant [that] binds to collagen and elastin, so [it’s] very good for the skin elasticity and hydration; [It’s] been proven to naturally increase the hyaluronic acid synthesis in your body; It also helps with microcirculation; And, it’s a natural anti-inflamatory.”
