BiEau® Actif Red Algae is one of a number of recently launched ingredients within the BiEau® Actif range from Active Concepts. The range utilizes vital botanical essences sustainably sourced from algae, birch, and mushroom species. Cellular water or plant essence offers the ability to harness a nutritional isotonic solution capable of nourishing the skin and hair in personal care applications.
BiEau® Actif Red Algae is the sustainably sourced essence of Haematococcus pluvialis and fermented Phaffia rhodozyma designed to encourage an isotonic environment whilst reducing inflammation to combat problem skin and ageing induced by inflammation.
Phaffia rhodozyma and Haematococcus pluvialis are known as the major prominent microorganisms able to synthesize the carotenoid astaxanthin. Carotenoids are pigments responsible for bright red, yellow and orange hues in many plants and play an important role in plant health. Astaxanthin, in particular, is known to improve skin health and reduce inflammation. An in-vitro interleukin-6 ELISA assay demonstrated an ability to reduce inflammatory mediators, which could lead to a decrease in the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
BiEau® Actif Red Algae utilizes a novel approach to sustainability whilst capitalizing on the presence of astaxanthin, from red algae and fermented yeast, to rejuvenate the complexion with potent anti-inflammatory benefits.
