Benefits of Algae in Skin Care 

         Algae are a good source of Omega3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They also prevent dryness and fight skin problems like eczema and acne.  

         Algae regulate the production of sebum- The production of sebum is necessary for the skin to be moisturized and thereby prevent dehydration of the skin.

         Algae offer antioxidant properties. Free radical damage is the number one cause of skin aging. Algae help fight free radicals and also help aid in the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential to having firmer skin.

         Sea nutrients such as Algae and Sea Kelp are loaded with essential minerals and vitamins. These offer regenerative, protective and intense rejuvenating properties to prevent the aging process while also repairing skin damage.
