Algae Peptide is a water-based active ingredient extracted from Chlamydomonas acidophila, sustainably sourced from France and bioinspired from the ecosystem where this microalga was originally found. It thrives in waters known to be highly inhospitable (pH, heavy metals, ...). The resulting concentration of peptides helps the skin endure the extreme conditions of its environment. Algae Peptide acts as a cocoon for the skin. By inhibiting the key markers involved in inflammation, it protects the most sensitive skin from over-reactions caused by external factors, such as temperature variations, wind, friction, etc. It also prevents the skin from overreacting to nickel, a metal known to be an allergen. To do this, it inhibits the activation of basophils and immune cells and limits their secretion of histamine, a hormone involved in the allergic reaction. Sensitive skin is protected from overreacting to chemical stresses even at maximum erythema intensity and continues to reduce the visible effects of inflammation afterward.

Common Uses: Sensitive skin is reactive skin. Considered a skin syndrome, associated with sensations of skin discomfort (redness, scratching, tingling, stinging, burning) sensitivity affects about 50% of the adult population. Deficient skin barrier function, hypersensitivity to external factors, and disproportionate response to these factors are the main causes of skin sensitivity. Studies have shown Algae Peptides beneficial as an anti-inflammation treatment for sensitive skin, deep moisturizing & soothing care for dry sensitive skin, and anti-redness & calming skincare treatment for hypersensitive skin.
