Definition: Regardless of whether algae are macerated or micronised, the benefits of algae in cosmetics are endless. All the sea’s mineral substances are concentrated in seaweed cells, in a manner similar to a tiny chemical manufacturing plant. Algae are also a source of proteins, vitamins and antioxidants, as well as 9 amino acids, providing a synergy with the water soluble nature of the epidermis.
Algae has been around for two billion years and is constantly changing and evolving. There are seven major types of algae, but the most common types used in skin-care products are rhodophyceae or red algae, phaeophyceae or brown algae, and cyanophyceae or blue-green algae.
