What it is: A lightweight, oil-free serum that tightens pores, smooths roughness, and refines skin texture.
What it is formulated to do: Formulated with Alguronic Acid and multiperfecting ingredients (salicylic acid and oligosaccharides), this oil-free serum has a unique lightweight texture and instantly tightens pores, smooths roughness, and refines skin texture. Enlarged pores and discoloration are visibly reduced for a more even, radiant complexion.
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 a self-assessment of 100 women, within 10 days of daily use:
- 86% of women reported the appearance of pores was diminished
- 97% of subjects saw improvement in skin texture and tone
- 92% of subjects saw brightening of dull skin
Within four weeks of use:
- 90% of subjects saw pore size and appearance minimized
- 97% of subjects saw smoothing of rough, uneven skin
Suggested Usage: -Apply to the entire face following cleansing twice a day. -Use only as directed.
-Alguronic Acid: Support skin’s cell renewal processes and supports elastin synthesis.
-Salicylic Acid: Exfoliates dead skin cells and unclogs pores.
-Oligosaccharides: Tighten and strengthen pore walls to minimize enlarged pores.
-Daisy Extract: Increases skin brightness and helps improve uneven skin tone.
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. They were working on developing microalgae-based renewable energy solutions when they uncovered Alguronic Acid, a powerful compound responsible for regenerating and protecting the microalgae cell. When scientifically tested, it demonstrated significant antiaging properties, too. The result? A breakthrough skincare collection that offers never-before-seen technology for rejuvenated, younger-looking skin at any age.
