A powerful anti-ageing agent found in wakame seaweed, or Undaria Pinnatifida, Fucoidan protects against the elements — the drying, abrasive effects of sun, wind and salt.
In natural skin care, it has clinically proven soothing, protecting and anti-ageing properties, reducing the appearance of fine lines and visibly brightening and plumping skin.
We began our search for Fucoidan in Okinawa, Japan, where it has long been prized for its youth-giving properties, and ultimately found the best source in the wild-grown, sustainably-harvested wakame of Patagonia in Argentina.
Fucoidan: The advanced anti-ageing extract
Fucoidan is a naturally occurring compound in seaweeds. It functions to protect seaweed against a range of external stresses, including salt, wind and UV radiation.
For centuries, Fucoidan-containing seaweeds have been prized for their therapeutic properties. Yet it was not until the twentieth century that Fucoidan was first isolated and recognised by science.
It is extracted from wild grown Undaria pinnatifida seaweed (commonly known as wakame) in the ocean waters of Patagonia. This seaweed is hand-harvested in a sustainable way, then carefully refined in a laboratory into an organic skincare extract.
Fucoidan extracted from Undaria pinnatifida
The result is a luxurious active skin care cream that soothes and protects the skin, visibly diminishes fine lines, and maintains the youthful appearance of skin by protecting its building blocks.
