At the core of all our products is our hero 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. Designed by Nature to protect the microalgae from their harsh environments, we have extracted PhycoDerm ™ to help fight the oxidative effects of age human skin. Revolutionary, proprietary 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.
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.
