Global skin action of a laminaria extract

Skin is a large and complex tissue where the orchestrated actions of resident cells are necessary to support its structural and metabolic integrity.

Perhaps more importantly, top layers of the epidermis along with a lipid-rich intercellular matrix form the skin barrier.

GREENTECH: at the crossroad of the worlds...
Although the aquatic environment is a huge pool of unknown molecules and substances with exceptional properties, natural substances from dry land are more widely used and studied. Indeed, it is easier to plant, harvest and produce throughout precise seasons of the year. This is completely the opposite for marine organisms, which explains their use is much more limited than that of organisms from land.

PRODUCT PROFILE

Key to skin’s longevity found in snow algae
In the summer, persisting snow fields on high mountains are sometimes tinged with a red, pink colour. This phenomenon is caused by the snow alga Chlamydomonas nivalis. It is a unicellular member of the green algae that changed colour by producing carotenoids for protection against high ultraviolet radiation.
