Algae extract can come from one of many different species of algae, each with its own unique properties. Algae types used in skincare include brown algae, like kelp, and red algae. And there is, of course, the most well-known type of algae: green algae.
Benefits of algae extract for skin
All algae extracts have certain benefits. This ingredient is a humectant, meaning it helps the skin hold in water. Algae also have skin-brightening properties. It is also rich in antioxidants, which help repair free radical damage to the skin (this damage accumulates from environmental sources such as sun exposure and air pollution). This both repairs and protects skin from further damage. Algae extract can also help repair fine lines and wrinkles.
