Paeonia albiflora

What It Does

Peonies have gentle antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that fight against free radicals and promote cell regeneration. Peonies reduce inflammation, moisturize, brighten, and firm the skin.

Why It Works

Peony root extract functions similarly to tocopherol (vitamin E) in that it neutralizes free radical damage, and prevents oxidative stress. Peonies also contain another compound called paeonol that is anti-inflammatory, and reduces inflammation and redness in the skin.
