Algenist discovered Alguronic Acid from a unique strain of microalgae. Utilizing our advanced biotechnology process, our team of biotechnology scientists is able to grow, extract, purify and stabilize this powerful anti-aging ingredient. When scientifically tested, Alguronic Acid demonstrated significant anti-aging properties compared to other well-known anti-aging skincare ingredients.
CELL REGENERATION: Alguronic Acid demonstrated the potential to significantly encourage skin cell regeneration by 55%* over untreated cells. The foundation of Alguronic Acid’s repairing and age-delaying effects on skin is to help the skin optimize its cell regeneration process, resulting in smoother skin texture, a visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and more even and radiant looking skin.
ELASTIN SYNTHESIS: Alguronic Acid is proven to encourage and boost elastin synthesis, increasing elastin production by 32%** over untreated cells, resulting in firmer looking skin.
MELANIN INHIBITION: Melanin, a dark skin pigment, is responsible for the development of skin hyperpigmentation and age spots. When applied to model skin tissue, Alguronic Acid significantly decreased melanin formation by 26%***, thus demonstrating its ability to decrease the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots.
UV CELL DAMAGE PROTECTION: When applied to model skin tissue, Alguronic Acid provided protection from cellular and DNA damage following UVB exposure.
