Algae | INGREDIENTS LIBRARY
A Wealth of Active Ingredients from the Ocean
Group of brown algae, blue algae and red algae
Algae are simple plants without true roots. For growth and reproduction, they need sunlight and nutrients which they get from their environment. Therefore, the entire range of active ingredients from the oceans is found in marine algae. Additionally, algae are able to withstand the currents of the sea and to survive with very little light.
Algae can be used for a variety of purposes. They serve as food, dietary supplements, a source of medicine and even as a renewable source of fuel (biofuel).
Algae are truly multitalented when it comes to skin care. They possess strong antioxidant properties for excellent cell protection and they protect the elastic fibres to keep the skin firm and youthful. Furthermore, they provide intensive moisture and are very well tolerated by the skin, and they are rich in nutrients such as iron, beta-carotene and unsaturated fatty acids.
Alga is one of the six interactive ingredients included in our exclusive Celumer Marine Extract.
