Polysaccharides and mucilage are known as hygroscopic substances because they create a matrix able to adsorb and retain large amounts of water. These substances remain on the skin surface, coating it with a thin moisturizing filmogenic layer that regulates transepidermal water loss, consequently improving skin biomechanical properties. Polyplant marine is a great emollient. Hence, it serves as a great moisturizer and enhances complexion.
Algae have the potential of nutrients in a natural balance, which allows for absorption, thus restoring nutrient deficiencies in different organs and tissues. The incorporation of algae into the world of cosmetics helps restore the natural skin balance, due to their ion-based elements (oligo-elements, vitamins, and minerals). Algae also absorb sea mineral salts, calcium, phosphorus, iodine, and vitamins. These elements provide a natural way to restore skin vitality and improve skin appearance.
Polyplant marine is a great ingredient for tonifying, revitalizing, and stimulating the skin.
