Pycnogenol® French Maritime Pine Bark Extract
ycnogenol is the registered trademark for the unique extract from the bark of French maritime pine trees. The bark of this tree is loaded with beneficial antioxidant nutrients including bioflavonoids, which are also found in many fresh fruits and vegetables. The pine trees are cultivated over a period of 30-50 years in a large forest of millions of acres in South-West France near the famous Bordeaux region. The pure extract is a fine powder which is a light orange-brown color. It is used in dietary supplements, and in body creams and lotions for natural skin care. When used in body creams and lotions, it is important that an optimal concentration is used for maximum effectiveness.

How Pycnogenol Cream Affects the Beauty of Your Skin
Free radicals are dangerous and scientists believe that the continuous exposure to free radicals is the major cause of aging and also of many degenerative diseases. Topically applied to the skin in a cream base, Pycnogenol fights the effects of free radicals in the following ways:
Pycnogenol stimulates skin cells to double their anti-oxidative power, catching free radicals in the blood stream, thereby providing double defence.
Binds and protects collagen, the protein that keeps the skin tight and smooth. Enzymes and free radicals can no longer break down collagen and elastin fibers, thereby stopping developing wrinkles in their tracks.
Protects the skin from accelerated aging due to exposure to sunlight (preventing photo-aging)
Helps fade age spots, the first signs of aging
Helps to lighten disturbing dark spots on the skin resulting from over-pigmentation
Restores good blood circulation in tiny capillaries in the skin, restoring water and oxygen and removing waste products. Your skin is replenished with moisture, looking young and fresh.
Venus Pycnogenol Cream
enus Pycnogenol® Cream is not just any pycnogenol cream. First, it contains an optimal concentration of pure French Maritime Pine Bark Extract. Second, our cream is unique in that, like our other creams, it contains only 100% natural ingredients, with no artificial fragrances, chemical preservatives, synthetic dyes or other synthetics added. In addition, no animal by-products are used.
Venus Pycnogenol® Cream has a natural fragrance that comes from the essential oils in it. Unlike chemical fragrances, the natural fragrance in our cream does not linger, because the cream is absorbed easily and quickly into the skin, leaving the skin feeling and smelling fresh. The color is a light orange-brown and comes only from the color of the Pycnogenol itself (the color of the cream base without the Pycnogenol is white).
Venus Pycnogenol Cream
contains an optimal concentration (.5%)
of pure pycnogenol.
No Parabens (or their alternatives) are used
Other creams contain synthetic preservatives such as Propylparaben, Methylparaben and Butylparaben, which are toxic but widely used in the cosmetics industry. Alternatives for parabens include Phenoxyethanol and Ethylhexylglycerin, both synthetic and also found to be toxic. All Venus Naturals creams and lotions, including Venus Pycnogenol cream, contain only natural preservatives that are used by aromatherapists.
There is a growing concern about the use of parabens in cosmetics in relation to the increased risk of breast cancer. For more information on the dangers of parabens, search the net with the keywords dangers of parabens.
Many creams contain parabens, even though they claim to be natural.
Many companies selling their own brands do not publish all ingredients, only selected ones, so you do not even know what you are getting!
For your safety, Venus Naturals discloses all ingredients used in our products.

A year and a half ago, a dermatologist froze thirteen sun spots off of my skin. Most of them returned within a year or so. Understanding the healing qualities of pycnogenol, I decided to try it in a cream form on those spots. I used two other brands with very limited results before I tried yours. With your product, my sun spots have greatly improved and continue to improve as I continue to use your product. Thank you for producing a quality product.
I've been using this product for over a year now and I love the results. There's something to be said for the amount of pycnogenol in combination with the other ingredients in this cream. Venus pycnogenol cream keeps my skin looking bright, young and no wrinkles. I shopped around and compared other creams that claim to have pycnogenol as an ingredient -- this is the first product that does what it claims to do.
I searched for an alcohol free cream that might preserve and protect my husband's fair skin to apply during the course of daily cancer radiation treatments to his head region and after radiation is over to repair damage as we were advised radiation will change the texture, color and quality of his skin. This Venus cream caught my eye initially because it's alcohol free and has Pycnogenol-a form of tree bark I take as an oral supplement because it's a powerful antioxidant. I also liked the list of other natural ingredients. ... read more
