The power of algae – benefits of algae for your skin

Most species of green algae live in freshwater. Unlike many other groups of algae, green algae are quite similar to plants. For instance, green algae use chlorophyll for photosynthesis which gives the characteristic green colour.

As a rich source of proteins, vitamins and minerals, green algae have been an important component of the human diet for centuries. But now the beauty industry has started to embrace the wide variety of benefits as well.

Green algae has many benefits for the skin including hydrating the skin and improving skin texture. Green algae offer anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and can protect against cell damage, in addition to an excellent smoothing effect.

Algal extracts can be found in many face and skincare products, e.g. anti-aging cream, refreshing or regenerative care products, sun cream, emollient and anti-irritants in peelers.
