Nutri-Cosmetics covers several different sectors all of which have one thing in common : Beauty. Beautiful skin, beautiful shape, beautiful hair. Purextract produces and commercialises a unique pine bark extract (Pinus Pinaster). Beautiful skin can now benefit from Purextract's Research & Development team's knowledge of plant extraction.

Cosmythic is created deep in the heart of the Landes Forest at our OPC dedicated production plant. The effectiveness of the ingredient is enhanced by its high content in low-molecular weight oligomers of catechin and epicatechin.

Cosmythic's effect on skin has been proven in a random double blind placebo-controlled clinical study :

  • Reduction in the intensity of dark spots
  • Inhibition of melanin production - depigmentation
  • Enhanced skin tone and elasticity
  • Reduction in the number of wrinkles and fine lines
