What it is: A concentrated gel that primes the skin, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What it is formulated to do: Upon application, alguronic acid filling spheres swell on contact with the skin, instantly concealing the appearance of lines and imperfections using this exclusive technology. The skin is primed for improved makeup application and a longer lasting, perfected finish. The regenerative power of alguronic acid combines with soy protein, echinacea, and an active peptide complex to minimize the look of deep wrinkles and even skin texture, creating a more youthful appearance and healthful glow.
What it is formulated WITHOUT: - Parabens - Sulfates - Phthalates
What else you need to know: Alguronic acid is a unique and powerful regenerative compound from microalgae. This rare ingredient was discovered unexpectedly by a biotechnology laboratory in San Francisco, CA, focused on researching renewable energy solutions. Algenist is the only line of skin care products to contain the antiaging power of alguronic acid.
Research results: In comparison testing, alguronic acid outperformed other well-known active antiaging ingredients, demonstrating superior antiaging benefits: -55% saw an increase in cellular regeneration -32% saw an increase in elastin synthesis -26% saw a decrease in melanin production
After immediate use: - 100% of subjects saw smoother fine lines and wrinkles in targeted areas - 95% of subjects reported that it primed their skin for flawless makeup application
Following a self-assessment of 40 women, within 10 days of twice-daily use: - 98% of subjects reported that it visibly diminishes fine lines and wrinkles - 75% of subjects reported that it minimized the size of deep wrinkles
Suggested Usage: -Apply after all other skin care products have been absorbed and prior to applying makeup. -Apply small amount of TDWM in targeted areas (forehead, eye, and lip wrinkles), in the direction of the wrinkle. -Let product dry for 90 secondswhen dry skin has a smooth, matte finish. -Apply makeup on top, in same direction of wrinkle. -Use only as directed.
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.
