Cytobiol™ Lumin-Eye

A brighter look

The skin around the eyes is thinner than on any other part of our bodies, which makes it the most sensitive to change. Short nights, stress, and fatigue all contribute to puffiness and dark circles, affecting 80% of all women and as much as 50% of all men. Undereye bags and dark circles are the result of several disorders, including weak blood and lymphatic capillaries, poor drainage of interstitial fluids, skin sagging, and a reduction in microcirculation.

The high ash (Fraxinus excelsior) is a large tree commonly found in European forests. It draws its name from Latin fraxinus (“lightning”) because its height of up to 40 m attracts lightning.

Its bark contains esculin and fraxin, two heterosides known to actively decrease the permeability of blood capillaries. These compounds give Cytobiol™ Lumin-Eye veinotonic and vasculoprotective properties. Moreover, fraxin and esculin have antioxidant activity that helps protect the blood capillaries while simultaneously resisting the breakdown of hemoglobin to reduce coloration under the eyes.
