What is Himanthalia elongate extract?

Himanthalia elongate also known as sea spaghetti/ Ocean lace-HE is a common brown alga, found in the North Sea, Baltic Sea and North-East Atlantic Ocean. Its used to make extracts, which is cosmetically very useful. It contains the highest antioxidant phlorotannins, in form of polyphenols such as phloroglucinol, catechin, caffeic acid, ferulic acid, myrcetin, quercetin, chlorogenic acid, etc. The alga is rich in Vitamin A, C, and E, amino acids, polysaccharides, minerals, fatty acids, etc.

Use & Benefits:

Sea alga is rich in all kinds of nutrients, whether it may be vitamins, minerals or proteins or sugars. SO, when the extract is applied on the skin routinely it can nourish skin, by fulfilling the missing elements in it. Vitamin A, C, are natural antioxidants, so they protect skin against any free radical damage and any oxidative stress, which can alter the skin elements and can change skin’s appearance and texture as well. But when skin starts getting protection from antioxidants, it is no more under stress and natural metabolism pattern of skin resumes. As a result, premature signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles start diminishing. Also, it boosts the natural collagen, protein to synthesize more protein for the skin.
