New Products from Algenist for Fall 2011 | Sephora Exclusive Products

ALGENIST REGENERATIVE ANTI AGING LOTIONALGENIST LOGONEW PRODUCTS : FALL 2011

Back in March, Algenist caught my attention in a big way. I’ve been wanting to give this line a real test and with the introduction of 4 new products to their line which features anti-aging newcomer, Alguronic Acid, I will likely give it a go. The products I’m most excited about is the new cleanser and the lotion – which gives those with oilier skin more options.

NEW PRODUCT ALERT (3/11): Algenist | Alguronic Acid Skin Care

New Product Alert: Algenist Concentrated Reconstructing Serum

ALGENIST ALGURONIC ACID SKIN CAREMy obsession with cosmetics has lead to a unusual side effect: an absence of “new product” excitement. Then I saw this on Sephora’s website….CURE!

“It started out as a renewable energy project—and turned into an unexpected anti-aging discovery. Algenist comes from a team of biotechnology scientists based in San Francisco. They were working on developing microalgae-based renewable energy solutions when they uncovered alguronic acid, a powerful compound responsible for regenerating and protecting the microalgae cell. When scientifically tested, it demonstrated significant antiaging properties, too. The result? A breakthrough skincare collection that offers never-before-seen technology for rejuvenated, younger-looking skin at any age.” – Sephora

First, I love that Solazyme, Inc. is based in San Francisco, and who’s main purpose is developing a renewable oil source utilizing the microalgae’s “prolific oil production capabilities”.  Through serendipitous discovery, they find Alguronic Acid®,  which is the isolated protective molecule that microalgae uses to protect itself from UV exposure and desiccation (drying out).

Sure, algae isn’t a newcomer to the cosmetic and skin care world. Dr. Max Huber, the aerospace physicist used sea kelp and bio-fermentation to create his Miracle Broth™. Creme de La Mer was born (although it is now owned and distributed by Estee Lauder) and a plethora of algae-centric products followed. Algenist was also smart in formulating their products without parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, phthalates, GMOs and triclosan (according to Sephora’s website) keeping them on trend.

MONSTER BITES: Being Japanese and living in Hawaii – algae isn’t a mysterious substance from the sea. Sometimes we buy dried wakame (seaweed) from the store to make soup. After soaking the dried wakame in water, it quickly re-hydrates back into a soft, pliable – but firm substance. Why not harness some of that miraculous resilience into skin care? I’m writing Algenist products in my notebook and predicting that it will create the next big boom in skin care. Algenist products are a Sephora exclusive and will also be on QVC’s Friday Night Beauty on March 25 at 10PM EST (Hawaii Time: 4PM).
