At the end of the study, the participants’ skin showed significant improvement in thickness and elasticity. Suggested recommended dosage is taking 50 mg of bamboo extract daily.

Aside from the high concentration of silica, Bamboo contains a number of natural antioxidants which can protect the skin against harmful free radicals and UV-induced damage, which ultimately contributes to a more even and radiant complexion.

Chlorophyll is the magical ingredient. It is such an under-dog and surprising to us that it is not available in more skincare products. It has so many benefits! Chlorophyll promotes your blood cell production, which means it gets oxygen delivered to your cells quickly. That balances your skin.

In addition to being a major anti-inflammatory, studies show the plant pigment can heal wounds (talk about superhero powers). So applied topically, it’ll reduce and prevent blemishes. The deep-green power player also contains magnesium, which helps oxygenate your skin (hello, glow!) and aids in vitamin C metabolization.

In summary: Anti-inflammatory, promotes cell production and reduce and prevent blemishes.

Chondrus crispus, also known as red algae, is a rich source of many nutrients for skin, including the pigment beta-carotene and potent antioxidants zeaxanthin, lutein, which help protect skin from environmental stressors. Of course, the antioxidants in red algae have wider-reaching benefits, too; such as nice film-forming to protect the skin from aggressors, skin smoothing and moisturizing properties.​ It is the natural polysaccharides, peptides, and amino acids in this red algae that support the skin and shield the skin from damaging airborne pollutants.

Chondrus crispus has biomimetic properties between skin proteins and carrageenans. It has a very long-lasting action and can form a “second skin” like a veil over your skin to defense it against envrionmental stressors. Finally, it also gives a “slow-release” effect to oil-loving active ingredients and measurably reduces trans-epidermal water loss (basically it moisturizes the skin).
