The Science – Spirulina contains high levels of phosphorous, vitamin A, vitamin B-12, vitamin, E, calcium, and iron. These elements combat and help reduce the presence of free radicals. By eliminating harmful free radicals from the skin, spirulina purifies the cells of the skin which results in an improved appearance of the skin.
The introduction of spirulina to the skin in a topical product aids in the acceleration of skin regeneration. The faster cell turnover rate increases the speed with which the skin can heal itself and promotes the shedding of dry and dead skin cells that dull the skin’s appearance. The increased skin cell turnover rate leads to an improved skin metabolism that helps to create and maintain a healthy glow. Because of the high levels of selenium, vitamin E, and tyrosine found in spirulina, it is considered to be an effective anti-aging element.
Spirulina has also been shown to help combat acne by removing the harmful toxins and bacteria on the skin’s surface that have been shown to cause breakouts. The introduction of a natural skin product containing spirulina could reduce the appearance of breakouts on the skin by improving the skin’s overall health.
