Benefits of Blue Green Algae

Blue green algae, also known as cyanobacteria, is a type of bacteria that has been gaining popularity in the skincare industry for its numerous benefits. With research backing its ability to promote skin health and elasticity through collagen and elastin production, organic blue green algae is a powerhouse ingredient. We love the nutrient density and source ours domestically for the formulation of our facial exfoliant that works to help revitalize dull skin and calm red undertones and broken capillaries.

As you might suspect, blue green algae is packed with antioxidants, such as beta-carotene and vitamin E, which of which help protect skin from free radical damage. These antioxidants can help reduce the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, target inflammation and encourage dermal hydration while providing a balance to skin. It is also known for its hydrating properties by working to retain moisture in skin helping to create a plump and supple complexion.

This ingredient is also packed with anti-inflammatory properties to help calm and soothe irritated skin and cool red undertones. It can be incredibly beneficial for those with sensitive skin or conditions such as eczema or rosacea. With consistent use, we have found that incorporating blue green algae into your monthly exfoliant routine can help reduce redness and inflammation.

Known for its detoxifying and collagen promoting effects on the skin, blue green algae can help draw out impurities and toxins leaving the skin looking clearer and more radiant. It also contains peptides that can help stimulate collagen production, which is an essential protein that helps maintain skin elasticity and firmness.

Our Blue Green Algae Facial Mask was formulated with intention to incorporate the powerful phyto-retinols and endlesss nutrients of this ingredient along with AHAs and vitamin C to help break up stubborn congestion.⁠ Each plant-based ingredient brings something new to the mix, but as a whole, this mask helps to clarify skin and reduce overall red undertones.

This mask is formulated to use weekly, monthly or as part of a custom mask blend to address common skin concerns.
