Cinnamon is a spice that is derived from the bark of the tree genus Cinnamomum. The benefits of cinnamon on skin date back for thousands of years. It is known to provide antioxidant protection.  Cinnamon extract has shown good ability in inhibiting oxidation damage done by environmental free-radicals. This protective property allows for the effects of cinnamon on skin to be used for maintaining its overall appearance. 1
