Also known as “red algae”, Chondrus Crispus is rich in fatty acids and helps protect the skin and diminish sensation of tightness.
Chondrus Crispus lives in the oceans depths in extreme environmental conditions and temperatures.
This alga developed abilities to survive and protect its cells from environmental aggressions.
Its carbohydrate extract, called carrageenan, has biomimetic properties with the skin: when in contact, the extract binds with skin cells, forming a film on the skin surface, very much like a second skin.
This light but protective occlusive ability allows Chondrus Crispus to offer hydrating and smoothing actions.
