INCI: Chlorella Vulgaris Extract
This skin conditioning and protecting agent has a number of powerful anti-aging benefits. Chlorella extract is a rich source of carotenoids - a family of nutrients that, when ingested, deposit into the skin. Chlorella Vulgaris extract is loaded with amino acids such as lysine, proline, glycine, and alanine, , all of which are key elements for collagen synthesis. This vital ingredient is able to prevent the breakdown of collagen, which has to do with skin elasticity while generating the production of more collagen. In addition, it increases skin firmness, significantly reduces the appearance of stretch marks, and restructures and smoothes out the surface of the skin, particularly with aging skin.
Collagen contains four amino acids: arginine, proline, hydroxyproline, and glycine. Being one of the elements of collagen, glycine is particularly important. Glycine is the most abundant among all naturally occurring amino acids that comprise our skin, however, its production is naturally decreasing as we age. Collagen and connective tissues are vital components of everything in the human body. Even the bones are surrounded by a collagen matrix, the degradation of which is a core feature in osteoporosis. Collagen makes up the fibrous materials of the body, including skin, tendon, blood vessels, and gut lining.
