The origins of Pycnogenol® French maritime pine bark extract

In his Berlin based laboratories, Charles Haimoff developed a unique substance, a water-soluble flavonoid extract from the bark of the French maritime pine tree, called Pycnogenol®. Charles Haimoff's original vision from decades ago is still today's driving force behind Horphag's commitment to research and development.

Horphag Research supplies Pycnogenol® as a raw material to companies that produce a variety of Pycnogenol®-containing products. Horphag Research does not make any claims regarding the use of these finished products and each manufacturer is responsible for ensuring that the claims made for and use of its products comply with the regulatory requirement of the locations in which it markets its products.
