Red algae extract promotes skin hydration, protects cell activity, enhances cell turnover, and acts as a powerful antioxidant and sun protectant. It normalizes the skin’s moisture content and enhances overall elasticity and firmness to the outer most layer of skin, helping to restructure and “even out” skin that has been damaged and turned to scar tissue. These properties make it useful in reducing the appearance of scarring, by rebuilding new skin to replace damaged cells.
Red algae extract (APT) is obtained from a special strain of marine red algae group scientifically known as Ahnfeltia concinna, a native species of the Hawaiian Islands. This particular kind of red marine algae is believed to increase cell production and to rebuild cells more evenly. This means that it may help repair the damage tissue present in a scar and help reproduce cells that are healthy and uniform in nature.
