Don't underestimate this secret of the ocean
It waves up from the seabed, drapes itself across rocks… But did you know there’s one more place algae belongs?
Indeed, 99% of our biosphere is dependent on our waters, thanks to the vital, life-breathing phytoplankton that they breed. However, this far from represents the only regenerative element that lies deep in our planet’s blue heart; algae, one of the skin’s most healing natural allies, is also given life to here. Read on to discover how this ocean-sourced secret can rejuvenate your skin to unparalleled heights.
The skin elixir from the sea
There are thought to be up to 1 million species of algae, each one endowed with varying degrees of skin-beautifying properties. It enhances the skin from all angles, hydrating, firming, soothing and detoxifying, all the while replenishing essential vitamins and minerals. What can’t it do?
When it comes to anti-aging remedies, algae should feature at the top of your list. Armed with antioxidants, it shields skin from free radical damage and boosts collagen production (accelerating skin cell regeneration), while its rich source of Alguronic acid amplifies the creation of elastin. As skin ages, it can lose its elastin fibers, which causes wrinkles, sagging and laugh lines - but with its elastin-catalyzing properties, algae can get your skin on its way back to its youthful heyday!
Hydration & nourishment
If you’re looking for nourishment, you should also look to algae. Its rich source of fatty acids can fight against inflammation, leaving skin soft, even and supple. Some algae even contain a bacteria called Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA), which has proven to be more abundant in proteins and minerals than a mother’s milk!
