SOD is an enzyme physiologically present in all human tissues, therefore also in the skin.
It has a powerful intracellular antioxidant action, blocking protein denaturation, DNA damage and lipoperoxidation, or "rancidity" of fat molecules.
A determining factor in the development of the formation process of dark circles is the stagnation of the blood flow, which is why the cosmetic treatments on the market for anti-eye dark circles generally contain ingredients capable of stimulating the local microcirculation and acting with vasoprotective properties.

Its action is enhanced by the presence of other antioxidant systems, such as Vitamin E which is also able to regenerate it.
