Citrus Limon Extract is a standardized hidrosoluble extract of Citrus containing 7.0 - 11.0% of flavonoids expressed as naringin. Flavonoids have a natural antioxidant action wich can be used in cosmetics. They are powerful free radical scavengers, giving rise to an anti-aging action which gets strengthened by the cellular membrane stabilizing action. There is also an anti-tyrosinase action. They also cause a decrease on capillary permeability with anti-inflammatory and anti-oedema effects.
The incorporation of Pronalen Citrus in cosmetic products provides them with specific properties. These properties are: free radical scavenger, cellular membrane protector, UV protector, depigmentation, regulator of permeability and capillary fragility, anti-inflammatory and anti-cellulite.
