Organic Cosmetics with Marine Phytoplankton

Use of Natural Ingredients in Cosmetics Industry
Cosmetics and beauty aids as far back as the Egyptians used about 4,000 years ago were made of products that were made using substances created by nature. They contained beeswax, animal proteins and fats, even pulverized gem minerals that produced colors that were used for adornment. Substances such as berries, leaves, and ground glistening stones were used with a little ingenuity, and would by today’s standards be considered biotechnology. It was not until about 60 years ago that chemical cosmetics showed up and took over the industry.
People are now becoming more and more aware of natural ingredients and how they can be used in cosmetics with more safety and protecting effects. The trend is to go to with less processed and synthetically manufactured agents and use more natural ingredients such as nut carrier oils, plant essential oils and extracts.

Microalgae in Cosmetics
Scientists and biotech companies have found that marine microalgae contains high amounts of lipids (fats), proteins, antioxidants and vitamins that have anti-wrinkle other beneficial properties and contribute to the long-term protection and preservation of the skin. There has been research in development of products that help treat baldness, reduce allergies in people with sensitivities to synthetic colors/dies and protect against the harmful effects of the Sun's UV raditaion. Skin and hair products, deodorants, body washes, acne products and clay masks have all enjoyed the added lipid and protein-containing effects of microalgae.

Know the Sources of Your Microalgae
Microalgae cultures can easily be contaminated with toxic substances as well as other microalgae strains. They can also absorb heavy metals from the water they are grown in. For these reasons, it's very important to buy microalgae products from a trusted source, especially those strains that are being consumed by humans.
