Beauty Care

Microalgae biomass and extracts are frequently used in skin treatment and skin beauty products. Some of the used microalgae genders include Chlorella sp., Nannochloropsis sp., Haematococcus sp. (more concretely, the astaxanthin) and Scenedesmus sp.

While algae species have already been used in some cosmetic formulations, such as moisturizing and thickening agents, algae remain largely untapped as an asset in this industry due to apparent lack of utility as a primary active ingredient.

Allmicroalgae recently started an R&D program to assess the bioactivity of specific microalgae products (biomass and extracts) and its impact on the skin’s health maintenance and repair. The target is to get the most out of microalgae’s unique benefits, contributing to a healthier beauty based on naturally available microalgae compounds.
