Cucumber extract

Cucumber extract is the perfect active ingredient for everyday skincare. Containing over 95% water, it's an excellent moisturiser. Thanks to its acid content, it regulates excess oil production, softens, cleanses the skin, and eliminates redness, which makes it perfect for sensitive skin.

As part of cucumber extract’s composition, polysaccharides hydrate skin, and vitamins C and E, as well as coumaric and gallic acids, have antioxidant properties. Enzymes lighten, and B vitamins soothe.

A wealth of minerals and microelements (potassium, magnesium, calcium, sodium, zinc, iron, manganese, phosphorous) work to restore and maintain skin health.
