The Power of Marine Extracts in Skincare
Are you seeing the signs of ageing? Does your skin need hydration and a boost of radiance?
One of the most powerful skincare ingredients you can find emanates from the depths of the ocean. Marine extracts are not a new ingredient in the beauty space, but they have stood the test of time for a reason.
Read on to find out how marine extracts in skincare can impact the health of your skin. Plus, meet GERnetic’s newest arrival in the marine sphere.
Marine Extracts and Ageing
As we age, our body’s ability to produce collagen reduces dramatically. This results in a loss of elasticity, sagging, and fine lines and wrinkles to appear.
Algae contain a powerful concentration of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins, and lipids, hugely beneficial for the skin.
By combining these marine extracts into skincare, we can create a rich cocktail of nutrients that effectively aid in preventing the appearance of ageing and the results can be remarkable.
Some of the anti-ageing benefits of marine extracts include:
- Encourages the fibroblast cells to produce more collagen and elastin. This results in firmer, plumper and younger-looking skin.
- Restores skin elasticity
- Increases cell respiration and cell growth
- Increase the GAG production in the skin (these are the body’s natural moisturisers).
- It helps lift and re-contour the neck and jawline
- Purifies and improves oxygen uptake to the cells with anti-oxidant actions.
- Rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids for soothing, moisturising properties.
Marine Extracts Rich In Minerals
Marine extracts are super rich in minerals like copper, zinc and iron. These elements allow the skin to retain moisture so it doesn’t become dry. A high mineral content also boosts blood flow throughout the body, leaving skin healthier and radiant. On top of this, the wealth of nutrients in marine extracts can treat skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema, by controlling sebum production.
Here’s a fun fact, did you know seawater and blood plasma have almost identical chemical compositions of mineral and trace elements? It certainly goes a long way to explaining why being around and in the ocean feels so natural. The marine plants and algae that grow in the ocean soak up and absorb all that goodness, making it a natural ingredient for powerful skincare.
