    INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT: ALGAE EXTRACT

    INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT: ALGAE EXTRACT

    While flashy, hot-of-the moment skincare ingredients come and go all the time, some tried and true ingredients stand the test of time. One such ingredient is algae extract. This magic from the sea has been used in well-formulated skincare products for years and the numerous benefits it provides to skin are the reason aos has included it in several of our most popular products. 

    Following are some benefits of this wonderful ingredient:

    Nutrient Rich

    Algae extract is rich in nutrients essential for the health of your skin. From vitamins like A, C and E to minerals such as zinc, magnesium and calcium, algae extract provides a cocktail of goodness that nourishes and revitalizes the skin. We included algae extract in the best-selling Amber & Myrrh Firming Body Cream because your skin from the neck down needs love too. 

    Super Hydrator

    One of the most remarkable qualities of algae extract is its ability to lock in moisture. Its molecular structure allows it to form a protective barrier on the skin’s surface, preventing moisture loss and keeping the skin hydrated and supple. For those with dry or dehydrated skin, incorporating the algae extract containing Youth in Bloom Phytoactive Firming Serum into your skincare routine can work wonders in restoring moisture balance.

    Pro-Aging Ally

    Aging is an inevitable and beautiful part of life. Algae extract can help make the process more enjoyable. Rich in antioxidants, algae extract helps combat free radicals that contribute to damaging skin as we age. The inclusion of algae extract in skincare formulations helps to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots. Which is why it has been included in both the Youth in Bloom Phytoactive Firming Day and Night Creams

    Soothing

    If you suffer from sensitive or irritated skin (and aren’t we all sensitive to something?) algae extract has soothing properties. Its anti-inflammatory properties help calm redness, reduce irritation and soothe sensitive skin. Incorporating products containing algae extract can provide relief and help restore balance to your skin.

    Skin Purifier

    Your skin is constantly exposed to environmental pollutants and toxins that can wreak havoc on its health. Algae extract contains antimicrobial properties that help reduce bacterial growth. It acts as a natural detoxifier, helping to draw out impurities, unclog pores and purify the skin. Regular use can leave your skin looking clearer, brighter and more radiant. 

    Environmental Ally

    Beyond its benefits for skin, algae extract is also environmentally friendly. Algae extract is a renewable and sustainable resource. Cultivating algae for use in skincare products has minimal impact on the environment, making it a good option for eco-conscious consumers.

    The continued use of algae extract in skincare formulating is not a passing trend, which speaks to its efficacy and versatility. From hydrating and protecting to soothing and purifying, algae extract offers numerous benefits for every skin type. Whether you’re just setting up your skincare routine or are a full-fledged skincare junkie, including algae extract in your routine will help keep your skin radiant, healthy and happy.
