The Many Benefits of Marine Algae

It is described as ‘one of the most nutritious form of vegetation’

Fucosorb 3Alga Seaweed Extract

As Food, algae (seaweed) is full of nutrients and good for health as it contains a rich supply of minerals, most prominently calcium, copper, iodine and iron. It is also rich in protein, fiber and vitamins, while being low in calories and fat.

As Cosmetics, algae has anti-inflammatory and moisturizing benefits. Premium brands use algae (seaweed) extracts for anti-inflammatory/soothing, anti-aging and hydration purposes.

Inspired to create a multi-functional active ingredient, Sensient developed Fucosorb 3Alga.
