The secret ingredient hidden in nature for youthful, healthy eyes!
Nature hides the best beauty secrets that exist for skincare. One of them comes from red marine algae, which has a deep moisturizing effect on the skin and can even be a more powerful moisturizer than hyaluronic acid. Knowing algae’s high potential, our specialist, Dr. Leyda Bowes, carefully chose the best ingredients, like this one, to incorporate it into the PIEL ETERNA product line. Learn more about each ingredient, in this case, marine algae, and how it benefits your skin, especially your eye contour area.
What are Marine Algae?
You’ve probably heard about it, and the first thing that pops into your head is an image under the sea. Turns out that this is a multicellular organism that includes varieties of green and brown algae and red seaweed. This plant is considered the oldest organism in the plant kingdom. Most seaweeds are red varieties, which make up about 6 thousand species.
How is it used for cosmetics?
Marine algae are considered abundant sources of bioactive compounds with a high potential use for cosmetics. One of its main components is carbohydrates, which are used in cosmetic formulations for different purposes. For example, as a moisturizing agent and for its anti-aging and antioxidant properties.

Marine algae secrets
Ultraviolet rays and pollution contribute significantly to wrinkles and skin aging because they reduce and decay collagen production. Therefore, it is important to have an efficient antioxidant strategy to support the dermis and epidermis. Research shows that marine algae are rich sources of substances called metabolites, which help fight skin aging (2). They also stimulate the production of another substance that fills in the spaces between skin cells and has a moisturizing effect that helps skin feel and look softer, smoother, and brighter.
Beneficial for your skin
Facial care has become crucial in the beauty products industry, specifically for sensitive skin. According to studies, more than a quarter of cosmetic products for sensitive skin use marine algae, as it helps fight inflammation and improves the protective barrier function. (3)
Marine algae also produce substances with bioactive properties that have antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory benefits, among others. Red algae are rich in bioactive compounds that are used to treat acne. (4)
