Algae is a whole food with just one ingredient, 40 vitamins, and minerals, and 60% protein. It is ideal for hydrating, plumping, clearing, and toning your skin. The cocktail of essential vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and fatty acids helps to protect your skin, repair environmental damage, fight against aging, and boost collagen production while balancing your oil production, reducing puffiness, and soothing redness. It can help regulate moisture balance in the different layers of the epidermis (our outer layer of skin), working as a natural humectant providing a reserve of water in the tissues (will not clog pores), locking water in the skin's upper layers (more powerful than hyaluronic acid), keeping it supple and hydrated.
