Algae have been already known in ancient Far East, but today they are literally booming. It’s no wonder since they can be called a nourishing bomb. And although different kinds of algae have different properties, their main mineral ingredients and effects are the same. Algae have following effects:
That’s why they go great with every skin type: dry, dehydrated, oily or acne-prone. It’s because of amazing substances that hide in these green leaves. Algae contain amino-acids, potassium, magnesium, iodine, chlorine and iron compounds, vitamins A, E, C, B1, B2, B5, B6, B12 and B3. They are also rich in alginic acid, hyaluronic acid, d-mannitol, sorbitol and great amount of polyphenols – natural antioxidants.
Brown algae for beauty
In cosmetic industry, brown algae are the most common – you can find them in Livioon’s day and night cream, too. Why them?
First and foremost, because they moisturize the skin intensively, even the driest or the most dehydrated one. At the same time, applied on face, they visibly tighten skin pores helping to fight with acne, blemishes or discoloration. Used regularly, algae improve skin tone and its overall appearance and also sooth the skin – which surely any owner of dry or sensitive skin will appreciate. If that’s not enough, brown algae are known for its firming effect.
In our creams we combined them with water lily extract and pullulan for optimal results.
Algae for dry skin hydrate it effectively thanks to high content of natural hyaluronic acid. Its every particle can transport into the skin 40 times more water that its own weight!
Algae for oily and acne-prone skin fumigate and stabilize sebaceous glands, mostly due to high content of carbohydrates and sulphur. They support skin detox and help to reinstate its natural pH which’s important also for aging prevention.
Algae for couperose skin strengthen and seal the capillaries. They improve skin’s blood supply and relieve erythema. Thanks to antioxidants, algae increase skin immunity to external factors.
Algae for mature skin are excellent firming agent. They increase skin’s elasticity and make it visibly smoother. Special kind of protein, ao-sain stimulates collagen and elastin production while alginic acid and hyaluronic acid give – when applied regularly – a Photoshop effect.
It’s worth to use algae every day. Their skincare potential is huge – so why don’t use it fully?
