Chlorella Vulgaris (Microalgae) Extract
Chlorella vulgaris is a form of green microalgae, also known as phytoplankton, and is a rich source of carotenoids.
Depending on the extraction and refining techniques used, microalgae extracts can serve many functions. In our formulas, Chlorella vulgaris and a second microalgae extract, haematococcus pluvialis, form a powerful DNA repairing active.
This specialty extraction containing multi-pathway healing enzymes is encapsulated in a lecithin delivery mechanism to ensure optimal skin penetration. Specifically developed to deliver peak activity while you sleep, these enzymes do not require UV light nor cellular energy (ATPs) to be activated. The three enzymes, UVDE (UV Damage Endonuclease), OGG1 (Oxoguanine Glycosylase), and TRX (Thioredoxin), enhance both DNA repair and antioxidant system functionality to provide visible results. Impressively, studies show keratinocyte repair more than doubles over an 8-hour period of sleep and visible improvements in skin radiance, firmness and smoothness are evident in as little as 10 days.
