It delivers higher level of hydration with a silky but not greasy skin feel. It is a wonderful natural gradient from renewable sources and technologies inspired by nature, with low environmental impact while delivering high performance formulations.
Algae has been used in many beauty products. Beauty and cosmetic ingredient firms are developing new materials from coastal plants, seaweeds, algae and sea minerals. There have been several studies that indicate many potential cosmetic benefits from it. It can stabilize minerals that aid in skin moisturization. One study claims that algae has anti-acne properties without the irritation of over the counter drugs. Many beauty products that contain algae claim that it may help with skin lightening. Sea algae, rich in vitamins and minerals, are becoming a common source of anti-aging actives. Dr. Marcene Alexiades-Armenakas, in a New York Times article, elaborates that marine creatures and organisms have spent millions of years on the sea surface and evolved mechanisms to protect their DNA from UV damage. These mechanisms work on human skin too. That is why blue algae extracts are used for DNA defense.
Greek company Apivita is using sea fennel in sun care products while Italian firm Lacote has comprehensive range of anti-cellulite products using Guam seaweed. Brazil’s Natura Cosmetics has recently decided to use microalgae oil to deliver higher level of hydration, a silky but not greasy skin feel, mildness on the skin, neutral color and odor.
