With Rutin & Citrus Bioflavonoids (Vitamin P), Vitamin C, Soy & Sunscreen (UVA & UVB) " Spider veins" ...the tiny spidery red threads seen on the faces of many individuals are often called "broken capillaries." Actually, they are capillaries that are dilated, stretched out of shape... not broken. Capillaries that have lost elasticity and become inflamed. Various bioflavonoids, primarily rutin and citrus bioflavonoids, known as vitamin P, have been proven to help strengthen capillary walls (both internally and externally) and reduce the appearance of spider veins or redness. Since these facial areas are also sensitive, particularly to sun, weather extremes and free radicals, it's important for strong daytime protection. The formula also includes UVA & UVB sunscreen for these sensitive areas, along with vitamin C for anti-free radical action, plus soy and wild yam as co-factors for strengthening capillaries and elasticity to avoid future damage.
