Natural shield against skin stresses
Greensea, Greentech’s sister company, has launched one of the most powerful antioxidant and free radical scavengers, Astaxanthin produced by microalgae.
Greensea develops many cultures of microalgae in their own photobioreactors (PBR). More than 50,000 litres of production can be managed three times per month in their tubular and annular PBRs. The PBR allows inducing specific physiologies of microalgae and so allows the production of particular active compounds, in relation to environmental and medium culture conditions.
With a collection of more than 300 species, Greensea has numerous possibilities to extract, produce and purify cosmetic active ingredients.
Astaxanthin is a well-known antioxidant that is already largely used in food and feed. In addition to its anti-inflammatory activity, its antioxidant property gives a high photoprotection capacity to the skin and a strong defence ability against pollutants and environmental stresses.
Astaxanthin is a real shield against sun, pollutants and external aggressions and it stabilises skin hydration and limits the effects of ageing.
