Barley (seed)

Barley is an ancestral cereal from the wheat and oat family that has been grown for 6,000 years. Rich in fibers, sugars, vitamins B, minerals and essential amino acids, barley is a concentrate of energy and nutrition. For those with a sweet tooth, barley is found in the famous “barley sugar”, a mixture of sugar and barley extract. It is also used in malt form in the brewing of beer and some varieties of whiskey.

Barley malt extract used by Doux Me is rich in polyphenols referred to as OPC. Its antioxidant activity prevents cutaneous aging. It reduces the synthesis of melanin pigment for skin-brightening action.
