BiEau® Actif Birch is a vital botanical essence sustainably sourced from Betula alba, designed to encourage an isotonic environment whilst promoting antioxidant protection for the skin. Betula alba, also known as the White Birch, is commonly utilized to optimize skin health and is recognized as an abundant source of nutrients, including succinic acid. Natural acids such as succinic acid are vital components typically involved in cellular metabolism and provide protection against free radical damage.
The antioxidant efficacy of BiEau® Actif Birch was determined in-vitro (ORAC assay) and was shown to quench free radicals in a dose dependant manner.
