With all the efforts put into finding beauty treatments, it is rather ironic that the anti-aging properties of Algenist were found by accident. Scientists from Solazyme, a company looking for alternative energy options, were researching microalgae to be used as jet fuel. Instead, they discovered that certain algae have a property which can regenerate skin tissue and turn back the clocks of time.
Microalgae and Skin Repair
Algae has a unique coating around it which helps it survive in tough living conditions. The coating, which is made up of a combination of polysaccharides, protects the algae’s cells from UV damage, dehydration and oxidation. Discovering this, the researchers realized that algae could help protect human skin from damage too.
After further studies, it was proven that the polysaccharides in the algae could:
In the clinical trials with the algae which now makes up the Algenist anti-aging cream, participants had reduced pore size and wrinkles in just 28 days.
Development of Algenist Skin Care Product
Once the scientists at Solazyme realized what they had discovered, they knew it had potential in the beauty market. One of the two scientists behind the discovery even admitted that he had never put any cosmetic on his face before trying the anti-aging algae! They formulated the algae into a substance known as Alguronic Acid, which is the core ingredient in Algenist.
Rather than trying to hype up their algae cream as an anti-aging product, the company just released the results of their studies. It didn’t take long for the public to get excited about this new anti-aging product. On QVC, all 8000 units of Algenist sold out in just 8 minutes. Since then, the popularity of Algenist has just spread as men and women eagerly use the cream to reverse the signs of aging on their faces.
Along with Alguronic Acid, Algenist anti-aging products also contain other ingredients, such as peptides, vitamins, and antioxidants. With the algae leading the way and these ingredients to back it up, Algenist is proven to get the following results in just about 4 weeks:
Algenist is pricy at about $90 for a supply which can last up to 2 months. But this is the most promising anti-aging cream yet so it is no surprise that thousands are willing to pay the price for its benefits.
