Alaria Esculenta Extract.
Distribution: Alaria Esculenta occurs in the North Atlantic from Novaya Zemlya to Iceland and south to Brittany in the east and from the shores of Greenland to the Bering Strait in the west. It also occurs in the Bering Sea and Sea of Japan in the North Pacific.
Skin benefits: Alaria Algae is rich in amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It has been scientifically proven by in vivo and in vitro testing that Alaria extract can help promote skin health and appearance by stimulating hyaluronic acid synthesis, supporting skin barrier function and improving skin hydration levels. In addition, Alaria Esculenta extract is known to help preserve skin suppleness and elasticity by reducing collagenase and elastase (the enzymes that breakdown collagen and elastin) activity. Thus, it helps increase firmness while detoxifying and energising the skin. This makes Alaria Esculenta a key ingredient for radiant, youthful-looking skin.
Alaria Esculenta extract is a potent anti-oxidant, extremely nutrient-dense and packed with Vitamins A, B12, C and E, important for protecting the skin against oxidative stress.
It also contains Omega 3, 6 and 9, Phytosterols which stimulates and helps maintain inter-cellular communication. It detoxifies and energises the skin, excellent for tired, mature or dull skin.
