Black Pine: The Next-Level Ingredient for Ageless Skin

By Klaudia Tirico / August 8, 2014

Have you ever thought about how certain plants can thrive in places with harsh weather conditions? That’s no easy feat! For example, for over 3.5 million years, the Black Pine tree has survived and thrived year-round in the Mediterranean. It turns out that the tree is able to synthesize secondary metabolites (compounds that organisms don’t need to grow and reproduce) like polyphenols and tannins. These metabolites are what make the Black Pine so resilient and adaptable to the elements. So, if Pharrel was a tree, he’d be the Black Pine (ha!).
 
Because of this discovery, the Korres Research Lab was able to collect Black Pine extract and blend it with eight more active extracts, including “the first ever natural polypeptide and a global innovation in the beauty industry,” hexapeptide 11. The result was a four-product range of anti-aging skincare simply dubbed Korres Black Pine. 
 
The new line includes a Firming, Lifting & Antiwrinkle Day Cream ($58) that feels amazing under makeup; a Night Cream ($68) that offers visibly firmer skin after just a few weeks; a highly-potent Serum ($74) that boosts results when layered with the Night Cream; and an Eye Cream ($54) to reduce deep wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles.  Every product is, of course, made with the unique cocktail of extracts for ageless skin. 
 
The Korres Black Pine collection, housed in luxe new packaging, is now available at Sephora
