Pea Extract

An active botanical extract derived from seeds of Pisum sativum L., pea extract keeps specific enzymes known as proteases from degrading skin proteins such as collagen and elastin which are responsible for giving skin its firmness and elasticity. It can therefore protect collagen and elastin against the damaging effects of proteases activated by aging and through different types of skin abuse (UV, chemical, immunological, etc.)

Used in skin care products, pea extract acts as an anti-enzyme complex and gives the skin its firmness and elasticity. A clinical study has demonstrated significant improvement in skin elasticity (+16.7%) after just three weeks of treatment.

In combination with sucrose dilaurate, studies have shown that pea extract also produces a strong inhibition of tyrosinase activity, thereby significantly reducing melanogenesis (i.e. melanin production). As a result, brown spots are less visible, less numerous and smaller.


The following products contain pea extract:

- Reversa skin firming gel-cream
- Reversa anti-spot brightening serum
