Poppy Extract for Under Eyes and Cellulite


Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, unveiled Ecocert approved Ronacare Poppy SE, which is derived via CO2 processing of Papaver rhoeas. The material reportedly combats dark circles and under-eye bags, and smooths away the appearance of cellulite.

In vivo tests have reportedly shown the material to improve the elasticity and radiance of the skin, while also improving the micro blood flow. The material is also purported to reduce lipogenesis in fat cells, as shown in vitro.
