Black crowberry (Empetrum nigrum) fruit juice is a biologically active ingredient obtained from fresh berries by cold compression. It inhibits Matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP1) enzyme release, which is responsible for collagen destruction, and lessens elastase enzyme activity responsible for elastin destruction. Empetrum nigrum fruit juice acts as a skin firming agent that preserves collagen and elastin fibers in the extracellular matrix, improving skin elasticity and suppleness, and exposing youthful appearance.
In addition, Black crowberry juice enhances vascular elasticity, improving microcirculation in the skin. Thanks to a high concentration of polyphenolic compounds, it's a potent antioxidant that protects cell membranes and DNA from free radicals and oxidative stress. It's a natural antiaging ingredient that preserves the essential beauty of the skin.
