Snow Algae

You may have spotted Algae or Seaweed being used on skincare products, but have you ever heard about Snow Algae and its many benefits for the skin?

Snow Algae, scientifically known as Chlamydomonas nivalis, are tiny, single-celled organisms that thrive in freezing temperatures and high-altitude environments, such as snow-capped mountains and glaciers. Despite the harsh conditions they inhabit, Snow Algae have developed unique survival mechanisms that enable them to adapt and flourish in their icy habitats.

From their potent antioxidant properties to their ability to hydrate, repair, and protect the skin, Snow Algae offer a multifaceted approach to skincare that addresses a wide range of concerns.


Anti-Ageing Properties: Snow algae produce natural protective molecules, such as carotenoids and polyphenols, to shield themselves from the damaging effects of UV radiation and oxidative stress. When applied to the skin, these potent antioxidants help combat free radicals, which are a major contributor to premature ageing. By neutralising free radicals, Snow Algae extracts can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, promoting a more youthful complexion.

Hydration and Moisture Retention: Cold temperatures and harsh winds can strip the skin of its natural moisture, leaving it dry, dull, and prone to irritation. Snow Algae possess unique proteins and sugars that enable them to retain water and survive in freezing conditions. In skincare products, Snow Algae extracts act as humectants, attracting moisture to the skin and forming a protective barrier to prevent dehydration. Regular use of snow algae-infused products can help replenish moisture levels, leaving the skin soft, supple, and deeply hydrated.

Skin Repair and Regeneration: Exposure to environmental aggressors, such as pollution and UV radiation, can damage the skin's barrier function and lead to inflammation and irritation. Snow Algae produce enzymes and proteins that aid in repairing cellular damage and promoting skin regeneration. By accelerating the skin's natural healing processes, Snow Algae extracts can help soothe redness, reduce inflammation, and restore the skin's vitality and resilience.

Environmental Protection: Climate change and environmental pollution pose significant challenges to skin health, as exposure to pollutants and UV radiation can accelerate ageing and cause oxidative damage. Snow Algae produce secondary metabolites, such as mycosporine-like amino acids (MAAs), which act as natural sunscreens and protect the algae from harmful UV rays. In skincare formulations, Snow Algae extracts offer added protection against environmental stressors, helping to shield the skin from photo-ageing and other forms of damage.
