With so many products out on the market today, you might not know EXACTLY how each and every anti-aging, brightening, hydrating, powerhouse blend of ingredients work. Never fear! BeautyStat is here to help you better understand some of the most important and good-for-your-skin ingredients out today. But right now, we’re talking about Black Pine Extract
The mesmerizing aroma of the Christmas tree soothes your home for the holidays. But, did you know the fragrant, peaceful essence and oil of pine trees has healing properties that have been used for centuries? The scent of pine you love so much for the holidays can be important in keeping your skin, body and mind serene all year long.
The Black Pine
Black pine extract is harvested from trees in the Mediterranean. These amazing black pine trees flourish under the most extreme climates and conditions. They can live to be over 500 years old, producing a fragrant oil distilled from the long, delicate needles used in aromatherapy for saunas, steam baths and massages. New research has found that black pine extract has powerful anti-aging properties as well.
A Fragrant Beauty Bonus
Black pine extract contains an antioxidant called polyphenol. Polyphenol antioxidants are found in fruits like blackberries, blueberries, cranberries and in vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, and parsley. You can also find them in your favorite red wine. The isolation of the polyphenols in the extract and their incorporation into creams and serums have produced products capable of transferring the survival and healing properties of black pine extract directly to your beauty regimen.
Korres, born from Greece’s oldest homeopathic pharmacy, developed a formulation containing black pine polyphenol, along with a proprietary blend of 8 unique active extracts, 5 of which are patented, including Hexapeptide 11 — the first ever natural polypeptide. A 4-product anti-aging system firms, lifts and addresses fine lines and wrinkles. Try the Black Pine Firming, Lifting and Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream or the Black Pine Firming, Lifting and Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream. The cream works overnight when skin cells are optimally ready to receive the benefits of black pine additives.
Gehwol Fusskraft is a line of products primarily addressing foot care. These products use pine oil extract along with essential oils of rosemary, eucalyptus, lavender and orange to refresh, smooth and stimulate the skin. A favorite among nail techs, Gehwol was founded in 1889 by Eduard Gerlach, considered to be the pioneer of modern foot care. Try the Herbal Lotion along with the Herbal Bath to soothe your tired toes with the fragrance of pine.
