Within the deepest of oceans, is the secret to aging gracefully. Algae Oil is a unique algae-derived oil that can fight the signs of aging naturally.

Little do they know, that algae can also be responsible for younger, more beautiful skin.
According to ancient legends, mermaids have long been admired for their beauty, which they credit to the benefits of seaweed. While seaweed is not only nutritious, it can also restore the skin's epidermal lipid balance thus leaving skin looking fresh and vibrant. Now that this beauty secret has evolved into skincare, we can all utilize its benefits. Laminara digitata is the seaweed that stands out when it comes to beauty, containing almost every mineral listed on the periodic table!
Laminara digitata is large, brownish-green algae that thrives deep within the North Atlantic. This species of seaweed is rich in vitamins, minerals, and various trace elements. Used frequently in Chinese foods and associated with healing, this seaweed is also a good flavour enhancer for many dishes. When eaten, many perceive seaweed as salty however, this is misleading because it is actually due to a combination of chelated minerals found in seaweed such as sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and other trace minerals. Seaweed is found to be richer in vitamins and minerals than seawater.
These minerals work as co-factors in many enzymatic reactions such as protein synthesis and cell reproduction, while algae oil is responsible for replenishing lipids within the skin. Algae oil works to enhance barrier function, as loss of moisture is a key component of skin aging. By replenishing the skin's lipids, its natural moisture levels are restored therefore minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin. In haircare, algae oil can moisturize and condition the hair thus reducing breakage, while also nourishing and conditioning the scalp.
