Ingredient Spotlight: Under The Sea With Astaxanthin Kelp Blend
Can we collectively agree that sushi is one of the most delicious and nutritious food in the world? Especially those algae wrap; they have so many beneficial nutrients for the body. But it doesn’t stop there. Scientific studies have shown that some types of seaweed have dozens of ingredients that support skin barrier.
Repair Serum from Lorde+Belle is formulated with a specific type of seaweed that goes through the process of fermentation to maximize its moisturizing properties. So, let’s dive in into this ‘under the sea’ ingredients and discover how our skin can benefit from it.
What is Astaxanthin Kelp Blend?
Astaxanthin Kelp Blend is a natural kelp extract that has been derived by fermentation of Laminaria Digitata (a brown seaweed) using Lactobacillus Ferment. This seaweed is ethically and sustainably harvest and it’s a natural source of dozens of vitamins, amino-acids, beta carotene and up to 42 important elements. The fermentation process makes these nutrients easily absorbable by the skin, thus benefiting from them.
Why is this ingredient so special to Lorde+Belle?
Lorde+Belle is meticulous in the development of products. We combine science and research with nature to create effective skincare products with powerful ingredients, like we did with Repair Serum that contains Astaxanthin Kelp Blend. This marine blend is enriched with astaxanthin, fucoxanthin and fucoidans. Astaxanthin acts as a powerful antioxidant due to its scavenging ability for free radicals.
Studies have shown that this agent can enhance the immune system, which, in combination with the antioxidant property, protects skin cells from the damaging effect of UV rays. Fucoxanthin and fucoidans, when applied to the skin, increase the density of collagen fibers and speed up skin turnover, ultimately contributing to younger looking skin and fewer blemishes.
How does your skin benefit from Astaxanthin Kelp Blend in Repair Serum?
This bio ferment is our favorite ingredient because it has so many uses on the skin. This is the reason why Lorde+Belle decided to use it in the formulation of Repair Serum. Those with dry, oily or even sensitive skin type will benefit from Astaxanthin Kelp Blend. How you may ask?
For starters, it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As mentioned above, Laminaria Digitata is rich in amino acids, antioxidants and other agents that prevent premature aging and increase collagen synthesis, contributing to young looking skin.
Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, it can help soothe sensitive skin and even conditions like rosacea or acne. Astaxanthin Kelp Blend contains magnesium and zinc, which are known to help improve redness in sensitive skin.
Kelp Blend also does wonder in moisturizing the skin. It contains essential fatty acids and polysaccharides that not only lock the moisture into the skin, but also support skin barrier and increases its water holding ability.
