Laminaria Algae Extract


This ingredient name is not according to the INCI-standard. :( What, why?!

What-it-does: moisturizer/humectant


Though Algae Extract is an official INCI name, Laminaria Algae Extract is not. Laminaria refers to a group of brown algae commonly called as kelp, but there are 31 species of them, several of wich is used in skin care.

In general, Laminaria extracts serve as moisturizing agents with some added benefits (as they contain good for the skin things like mineral salts, trace elements, and vitamins).
