Chlorella Extract is derived from a particular type of Chlorella Vulgaris green algae that has been widely used as a rotifer food in Japan. This microscopic editable seaweed is rich in carotenoid lutein, which has an antioxidative effect. In addition, the extract helps the skin maintain its natural balance and activates restorative and vitalizing functions.
Chlorella is an extraordinary chelating agent thanks to its ability to join with metals such as mercury, lead, and cadmium and eliminate them from the epidermis. It also inhibits an enzyme responsible for collagen and elastin destruction, preserving those fibers and skin firmness and suppleness.
Rich in protein (58% by weight) containing all the essential amino acids, C. Vulgaris improves skin water retention ability, exposing a smoother, hydrated, and supple surface. In addition, those amino acids are building blocks for collagen and elastin fibers (proteins), promoting skin elasticity, smoothness, and youthful appearance.
