When it comes to skincare, there’s nothing better than getting back to nature. Of all our favourite products, those based with natural ingredients are some of the best. From aloe vera to sweet almond oil and cucumber to honey, we’re huge exponents of them all. And when it comes to algae there’s a massive amount of science to back up the claims.

According to Beautiful Skin, the benefits of algae have been known for donkey’s years, with Chinese medicine leading the way. Amino acids, mineral salts, trace elements, vitamins… Algae revitalises and tones up our bodies and protects our skin from wear and tear. Skincare products (masks, scrubs, soaps) include red algae to hydrate and remineralise, brown algae to soothe and soften and green algae to nourish and pump our skin full of magnesium. Algae’s active ingredients gently stimulate skin cells and boost cell renewal for a fresh-faced finish.

Each algae has its own properties, can treat specific zones, deal with all skin types and meet all needs: nourish our epidermis, protect or soothe our skin and slow down signs of ageing. They’re able to harness water, making them perfect for body and face creams. Packed with antioxidants, these age defying aquatic plants keep our skin elastic and prevent lines and wrinkles. Their enzymes, fatty acids, amino acids and vitamins provide a skin-friendly cocktail of benefits.
