Olehenriksen has reformulated its best-selling vitamin C eye cream with the release of the upgraded Banana Bright+ Eye Crème. It is designed to deliver even better results than the original product, thanks to a trio of vitamin C ingredients.
The Banana Bright+ Eye Crème takes advantage of new advances in vitamin C technology that were not available when the original Banana Bright Eye Crème burst onto the scene in 2017, per the brand. The new vegan and fragrance-free formula features three forms of vitamin C that work together to brighten, visibly reduce dark circles and boost elasticity while defending the skin against pollution:
- Gold-complexed vitamin C: ascorbic acid (pure vitamin C) and super-antioxidant glutathione combined with gold to create a highly stable, water-soluble complex that improves delivery of vitamin C to the skin’s surface layer
- 3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid: a water-soluble vitamin C derivative with superior stability and antioxidant capacity
- Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate: a stable, oil-soluble form of vitamin C that pairs well with other types of vitamin C
The Banana Bright+ Eye Crème also includes bioflavonoids. Extracted from fruits like grapefruit and mandarin, these citrus compounds defend against harmful free radicals.
In addition, the formula contains banana powder, light-reflecting pigments that instantly illuminate the skin.
Olehenriksen conducted an eight-week clinical study on 38 people who used the Banana Bright+ Eye Crème. According to the study, participants experienced 29% more brightness under the eyes, a 40% reduction in crow’s feet and 27% smoother skin. The study also found that the eye cream improves and extends makeup wear.
“By taking our tried-and-true product and fortifying it with even more effective ingredients for even stronger results, we know consumers will see brighter and better skin they can be proud of,” said founder Ole Henriksen.
The Banana Bright+ Eye Crème is available at Sephora stores, OLEHENRIKSEN.com and Sephora.com.
