Harnessing marine organic osmolytes for better ageing

Microalgae Solutions explains how it has harnessed an osmolyte-rich extract to create a bioactive ingredient that reduces the impact of photoageing and restores the skin’s natural well-ageing

ABSTRACT
Marine life extends beyond the ocean waters to the rocky coastline. A living marine micro-ecosystem develops on this hard substrate: the epilithic holobiont. This supra-organism composed of phytoplankton and its microbiota is a source of natural organic moisturisers. By applying Phycosphere Biodynamic® Technology we biomimic the extreme environment where this holobiont lives. The organic osmolyte-rich extract is extracted to create Osmocean Phycoskin®, an original moisturising and dermoprotective bioactive ingredient reduces the impact of photoageing and restores the skin's natural well-ageing.

Marine life extends beyond the ocean waters, on the rocky coastline. A living marine micro-ecosystem develops on this hard substrate (epilithic), capable of adapting and molding its beauty to the rhythm of the changing tides.

Composed by species of microalgae and associated bacteria (microbiota), this microecosystem, which we call the epilithic holobiont, is of vital importance because it sustains the life of other organisms living on the rocky shore, providing them with food, refuge and protection.
