D-pinitol is a unique natural active ingredient which is processed from the Mediterranean Carob tree, (Ceratonia Siliqua). This active ingredient is capable of regulating the level of moisture inside vegetal tissue regardless of external conditions (cold, stress, salt, drought). This extremely resistant substance is also very stable. D-pinitol has been found in plants that have been dried for more than 25 years. Tested in vitro on cellular cultures, it proved to be a constant, effective source of hydration for 7 hours. Because Euronutra D-Pinitol stimulates moisturizing of the skin, it can be applied to facial moistuzers, day creams, sunscreens and lotions.
