What are microalgae?

Microalgae are aquatic plants.  The red microalgae that produce PhycoDerm are found in marine environments. Some marine species are found on sandy shores, while most others can be found attached to rocky substrata. Freshwater species account for 5% of red algal diversity, but they also have a worldwide distribution in various habitats; they generally prefer clean, high-flow streams with clear waters and rocky bottoms, but with some exceptions. Algae can be classified into two main groups; microalgae and macroalgae. Red algae are considered as one of the most important sources of many biologically active metabolites in comparison to other algal classes.

Is the human use of microalgae something new?

The use of microalgae for nutritional and skin care purposes dates back thousands of years. During the last few decades, microalgae culture has emerged as one of the modern frontrunners of biotechnologies. These organisms have spent millions of years on the sea surface evolving successful mechanisms to protect their DNA from UV damage, prevent their cell walls from drying out, and provide resistance to diseases. Microalgae mechanisms are conserved cross species, meaning they work in human skin, too. AlgAllure uses cutting-edge algae harvesting technology to include the bioactive extract in all of our cosmeceutical formulations.

What is PhycoDerm?

At the core of all our products is our hero, proprietary ingredient, PhycoDerm , (Phyco, derived from the Greek root word for “algae” and derm, the root word for “skin”), a super antioxidant powerhouse extract derived from Marine Red Microalgae.  PhycoDerm is formulated primarily from an exopolysaccharide produced by the marine red microalgae.

PhycoDerm is the clinically tested primary constituent of our richly superior form of red microalgae, when scientifically tested, exhibited significant skin rejuvenating antioxidant and aging-defying properties. Designed by Nature to protect the microalgae from their harsh environments, we have extracted PhycoDerm to help fight the oxidative effects of aging on human skin. PhycoDerm delivers a plethora of skin nourishing and skin structure benefits—from Nature to you. That’s why PhycoDerm is the superstar of our AlgAllure age-defying skin care range.

What is the difference between PhycoDerm and other skincare ingredients derived from algae?

PhycoDerm is an extract derived from Marine Red Microalgae. Red microalgae are considered to be superior in comparison to other algal classes.

Who discovered PhycoDerm?

What began as research by our parent company, AlgEternal Technologies™ , for healing the planet’s soil and cleaning contaminated waters, has evolved into the introduction of an unparalleled anti-aging skincare discovery. This breakthrough was born out of discovering the phenomenal skin-nourishing properties inherent in marine red microalgae, one of the oldest and most nutrient-rich algae in the world.

What are the major anti-aging functions and benefits of PhycoDerm?

Much has been written about Marine Red Microalgae extract offering the following benefits:

  • Aids in skin moisturization
  • Provides anti-acne properties without the irritation of over-the-counter drugs
  • Helps with skin lightening and brightening
  • The antioxidant properties of algae help to fight-off premature signs of aging, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and may even reverse the aging process
  • Rich in vitamins and minerals which bring a wide range of benefits to your skin
  • Promotes improved blood circulation
  • Boosts the cell regeneration process and lowers DNA’s damage on the skin
  • Offers anti-bacterial benefits

We wanted to find out for ourselves.  So, we conducted an independent two-week study of a group of women using our products ranging in age from 25 to 81.  8 out of 10 women experienced the following results:

  • A decrease in fine lines
  • An increase in the firmness of their skin
  • An increase in skin brightening
  • An evening out of skin tone
  • Experienced their skin as hydrated and smoother

We look forward to hearing about your experience with our products!
