INCI: Undaria pinnatifida extract

What is Undaria pinnatifida extract?

Undaria pinnatifida extract is obtained from a species of marine algae called Undaria pinnatifida, which belongs to the family Alariaceae. It is commonly known as wakame, an edible species of seaweed that is native to Japan and some other parts of Asia. The extract obtained from it consists of compounds like fucoxanthin, as well as other minerals such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and iron. The algae is used in culinary items like soups and salads and is also valued for its medicinal properties.

Use & Benefits:

Antioxidant: Undaria pinnatifida extract functions as an antioxidant, which helps combat free radicals in the body caused by exposure to environmental factors such as harmful solar radiation and air pollution.

Skin-protecting: It also acts as a skin-protecting agent that can help reduce the risk of damage to collagen structure and function.

Soothing: The extract also has a soothing effect on the skin, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots caused by inflammation in the body.

Brightening: Undaria pinnatifida extract may help brighten the skin by reducing the appearance of dark spots.
Improved Skin Health: It can help improve the overall health and youthfulness of the skin by enhancing damage repair and reducing the risk of skin infections.
