Barley Benefits:
Antioxidant

Barley extract, derived from the barley plant (Hordeum vulgare), contains significant concentrations of phenols, which are known to provide antioxidant activity. Antioxidant protection helps to defend the skin against harmful free-radicals that are present in the environment. Skincare products that can reduce the amount of oxidative stress in the skin can help to maintain overall skin quality. When topically applied, barley extract can be used to support beautiful, healthy-looking skin. 1
