FAGUS SYLVATICA EXTRACT
Also called “fayard” by French foresters, Beeches are majestic trees that grow in our forests. Its buds, already used during the Middle-Ages, are embryonal products that concentrate the tree’s active agents. They are picked at a very specific moment of the tree’s development.
Beech buds are rich in polyphenols, amino acids and other metabolites and hence have antioxidant, hydrating and nourishing virtues for the skin. In vitro tests show these buds favour cell oxygenation and stimulate the synthesis of proteins that make up the skin’s structure (keratin, filaggrin, collagen and elastin), thus participating in the regeneration and restructuring of the skin and cutaneous barrier.
