Opextan™ is an innovative olive fruit extract. Its characteristic ingredient, among other polyphenols, is verbascoside, endowed with a potent radical scavenging activity. Opextan™ has been demonstrated to reduce skin sensitivity to UV irradiation, to reduce lipid peroxidation and oxidative stress. It may be used both orally and topically, for a novel approach to beauty. Olive is the symbol of the Mediterranean culture, and epidemiological studies have since long suggested the protective properties of olives and olive oil on human health.
