What it is: A clay-based, oil-free exfoliator formulated with Algal Earth to exfoliate and detoxify skin, remove impurities, and visibly refine pores.
What it is formulated to do: This clay-based, oil-free exfoliator lifts away impurities and visibly refines pores. It is formulated with an exfoliating granular mineral from algae to gently resurface and visibly diminish pore size. Multi-perfecting ingredients (salicylic acid and oligosaccharides) renew the skin surface for a brighter, more even skin tone, leaving the skin feeling smooth and looking luminous.
What it is formulated WITHOUT: - Parabens - Sulfates - Phthalates
What else you need to know: This product is formulated without triclosan, petrochemicals, synthetic dyes, and GMOs. It is dermatologist tested, for all skin types, non-comedogenic, and oil-free. While researching microalgae for renewable energy solutions, a team of biotechnology scientists in San Francisco unexpectedly discovered Alguronic Acid (patented), a powerful compound responsible for regenerating and protecting the microalgae cell. Combining Alguronic Acid with powerful, targeted active ingredients, Algenist skin care helps support the skin’s cell regeneration processes to deliver visible antiaging benefits for youthful and radiant looking skin.
Research results: In comparison testing, Alguronic Acid outperformed other well-known active antiaging ingredients, demonstrating superior antiaging benefits. Average results measured following an in vitro test with Alguronic Acid:
- 55% increase in cellular regeneration
- 32% increase in elastin synthesis
- 26% decrease in melanin production
Following self-assessment of 100 women, immediately after use:
- 94% of subjects saw removal of rough, dull skin
- 92% of subjects saw significantly smoothed skin texture
Within 10 days of use (three times per week):
- 92% of subjects saw impurities removed
- 91% of subjects saw brightening of dull skin
Suggested Usage: -Apply to clean, moist skin, avoiding the eyes. -Gently massage in circular motions for one to two minutes and rinse with warm water or remove with a warm, wet face cloth. -Apply two to three times a week, as desired.
It started out as a renewable energy project—and turned into an unexpected antiaging discovery. Algenist comes from a team of biotechnology scientists based in San Francisco.
