Extract: the quintessence of a dune tree and sea-spray
Obtained by extraction using natural solvents and an exactingly defined process, extract of maritime pine seed gives a remarkable concentration in active polyphenols: ± 500 mg/kg.
This content, twice as high as most other vegetable extracts, gives the product very considerable powers, a capacity to effectively combat oxidative stress and free radicals while supporting the natural activity of the skin and the organism.
As a highly effective plant-based active ingredient, extract of maritime pine contains the seed’s native nutriments, enriched, by way of a dedicated plant extraction process, with original phenolic compounds that are of great value to our health.
Dedicated to the cosmetics and nutraceutical industry, this part of our range is constantly evolving and being developed in close cooperation with our clients. Innovative bio-products with high added value – esters and vegetable butter – have, amongst other products, been developed in order to broaden your options for formulation.

Powder: the experience of plant-based exfoliation
Produced by grinding the cake of maritime pine seeds, maritime pine seed powder provides a source for gentle and unique exfoliation that could not be more natural.
An alternative to chemical-based scrubs, plant exfoliation helps to mechanically eliminate dead cells and impurities. It softens and evens up the epidermis, speeds up skin renewal and helps the skin to recover new-found radiance. With the rubbing movements, maritime pine seed powder stimulates the circulation and facilitates the absorption of the active ingredients contained in the skin products applied afterwards.
Suitable for both women and men and 100%-natural, maritime pine seed powder can be formulated as a scrub for the face or the body, in a shower gel or soap for a skin experience with a totally “seaside” flavour.
