- Phoenix dactylifera, or date palm extract, is scientifically proven to have a significant impact on the visible signs of skin aging. In cosmetics, this is a patented active ingredient known as D'Orientine S.

- There are seven natural compounds present in date palm working in synergy to improve overall skin appearance.This antioxidant powerhouse helps to improve barrier function, reduce the look of lines and wrinkles, and has skin regenerating properties.
