How Algae Affect Wrinkles and Lines On Your Skin
No longer restricted to aquarium walls and sushi platters, algae are now breaking out as superstar ingredients in industries ranging from health to skin care. From high nutrition content to ultra-hydration and antioxidant delivery, people are buzzing about the benefits of algae, especially the popular blue-green and red varieties.
The powerful properties of these aquatic plants are a few of the reasons why Eminence Organics launched the new Marine Flower Peptide Collection. With their reputation as the “superfood of the sea,” algae are transforming skin care in products like Eminence Organics Marine Flower Peptide Serum and Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream.
WHAT ARE ALGAE?
First of all, what are these organisms called algae? For clarification, we called on our in-house expert, Katy Muenter, who is Eminence Organic Skin Care’s Product Research & Development Manager, and also a marine biologist. Katy explains that algae are “a type of photosynthetic organism that can range in size from a single cell to over 50 meters long.” They grow in every kind of environment from hot springs to ice and snow, with many unique adaptations that help protect them from environmental damage.
SKIN CARE BENEFITS OF BLUE-GREEN ALGAE AND RED ALGAE
The extraordinary properties of algae evolved from their many and varied living conditions translate into phenomenal benefits for the skin. Like land-based superfoods, blue-green and red algae are vibrant in color and contain antioxidant pigments that naturally protect the skin. These compounds boost the skin’s defenses against a variety of environmental stressors. Besides acting as antioxidant powerhouses, algae also contain high concentrations of nutrients and amino acids. The intense dose of nutrition and protein building blocks replenish the skin and deliver superior hydrating benefits.
