Our lightweight alternative to traditional Hyaluronic Acid.
This natural formulation features marine-derived water molecules which attract and hold moisture 3 times more effectively than Hyaluronic solutions on their own.
It’s a perfect daily hydrator to be used in conjunction with our Eco Marine cream to visibly hydrate the skin, reduce wrinkles and smooth out the skin’s texture.
Why We Make It
We’ve been focussing on skincare for a while now and this has taken us 3 years to develop. Creating a natural hyaluronic acid using our Margate seaweed base has been a huge milestone for us.
Our Algae Plump + B3 has a hyaluronic like action. It strengthens hydration and cohesion of the epidermis, from the deepest to the outermost layers. This allows our skin to have three times the level of hydration for up to 24 hours after the first use which means our skin looks plump.
What does Vitamin B3 do for your skin? In its niacinamide form, the vitamin works to prevent water loss and retain skin’s moisture content so it’s a further complement to this hydration rich formula. When it comes to ageing skin, niacinamide improves the surface structure, helping smooth out the skin’s texture and reduce the look of wrinkles.
And don’t even get us started on the Algae – our own Margate seaweed suspended in a solution that helps clear the complexion and adds another degree of hydration.
These three things combined have allowed us to create a uniquely hydrating, game-changing serum for daily use to allow for plump, healthy skin.
Why We Love It
Our formulas offer effective natural solutions, offering you an opportunity to explore and compare the benefits of a natural ocean equivalent to an industry-standard hydration system. The feedback has been great. We’re really proud that our access to explore these unique ingredients always brings us to unique conclusions.
We’re super proud of this – but remember you have to seal Algae Plump + B3 in; it’s part of a skincare regime and has to be used in conjunction with a moisturiser rather than being a stand-alone product.
The formula is further enhanced with skin-friendly 100% pressed alginate which holds a B3 suspension to deliver additional hydration. The exceptionally light-textured formula absorbs instantly, swiftly penetrating the skin to deliver its impressive hydrating effects – without leaving any tacky film.
How To Use On Skin
Before applying the Algae Plump, make sure to cleanse your face thoroughly. Use the pipette to drop out 2 – 3 drops onto the back of your hand. Massage the serum into the areas of your face that you want to focus on, areas that need that hydrating plump, fine lines or dryness.
Before you let the serum dry, add your moisturiser or eco marine cream to seal the water layer being held by the serum against your skin.
We’d recommend sustained use on focused areas daily.
Suitable for all skin types.
This is where it gets interesting. 3 years of research and development has yielded us a wealth of knowledge.
Our Algae extract is a low molecular weight making it possible to enter lower levels of the epidermis. It consists of molecules of 50 kD and smaller and ensures that water is stored in the connective tissue of the skin. The additional moisture not only makes it appear firmer but also visibly reduces wrinkles with sustained use by hydrating the skin. When using low molecular weight water reservoirs, the moisture is stored in the skin sustainably.
We’ve combined this with a regular HA of higher weight to help protect the lower levels from evaporation before a moisturiser seal is applied.
Data shows that after 7 days of use the hydration level in the epidermis is twice as high as that obtained with hyaluronic acid and the surface of the skin is visibly restructured.
Goes Well With
We’d recommend pairing our Algae Plump + B3 with our daily eco marine moisturiser. You need to apply this quickly after Algae Plump to protective the water barrier.
