Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPCs)

Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPCs) are a class of flavonoids that are found in apples, pine bark, grape skins and wine (though not exclusively). Proanthocyanidins have been linked to many health benefits, including the stabilization of skin collagen and elastin proteins and decreased capillary permeability (a cause of tissue swelling). This is due to OPCs’ antioxidant properties. Antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E and OPC, act as scavengers, seeking out and rendering ineffective unstable molecules (free radicals) that can cause cellular damage that may result in disease. Free Radicals are present in our bodies and are produced by environmental factors such as UV light, herbicides, and smoking. Preventing free radical damage is believed to be essential to overall health, including skin health. When applied to the skin’s surface, OPCs penetrate to work alongside vitamins C and E as antioxidants, optimizing skin health at the cellular level.
