Derived from a species of algae found on the coast of the Hawaiian Islands, Hawaiian Red Algae is a rich source of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. Applied topically to the skin, Hawaiian Red Algae is a powerful anti-aging source, and clinical trials show it helps prevent collagen degradation, improves skin hydration and elasticity, and can reverse damage caused by oxidative stress and UV exposure. Hawaiian Red Algae naturally builds collagen and rehydrates the skin, making it possibly the most effective anti aging ingredient available in fighting the aging process. It contains the antioxidant Astaxanthin, which is one of nature’s most potent antioxidants and is classified as a carotenoid. Astaxanthin has been shown in clinical studies to increase skin’s moisture, moisture retention capabilities, elasticity, as well as promote skin smoothness and decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. It also has incredible UV-blocking properties, which helps to assist the skin in protecting itself against sun-related damage. As a whole seaweed plant, Hawaiian Red Algae is an extremely rich source of sulfated polysaccharides, carotenoids, peptides and fatty acids which help normalise and optimise skin health.
Studies have proven that Hawaiian Red Algae has a functional and powerful antioxidant and anti inflammatory role with notable results on the skin.
