Biotechnology from San Francisco
What began as research for alternative renewable energy sources evolved into one of the biggest skincare breakthroughs in anti-aging technology harnessed from Microalgae.
An Unexpected Discovery
Algenist is a clinical skincare brand delivering anti-aging innovation from Microalgae, one of the oldest and most nutrient-rich algae in the world.
The story of Algenist is deeply rooted in biotechnology expertise from the heart of the biotechnology industry, San Francisco. Scientists behind the brand were studying Microalgae as a source of environmentally sustainable, renewable energy when they came across an unexpected discovery that revolutionized the skincare industry.
The Genius Of Algae
Well beyond its capacity to produce rich oils for various industry applications, specifically fuel and food, Microalgae secrets a compound that not only allows it to survive, but thrive and regenerate in spite of exposure to the harshest of environments.
Scientists harnessed this compound and exposed it to rigorous scientific testing. They validated this compound's ability to help protect and regenerate the microalgae cell. This compound is Alguronic Acid.
Alguronic Acid delivers unprecedented, scientifically measured anti-aging benefits to the skin. Patented for topical application it is found in all Algenist skincare products.
