Origin of Porphyra Umbilicalis Extract
Algae native to ocean coasts are exposed to sunlight in extreme ways. Various algae species have therefore developed an effective UV protection mechanism. One of these is the red alga Porphyra umbilicalis, which grows on rocky coasts.
It contains a UV-A absorbing substance (Porphyra-334). These substances, isolated from the red alga Porphyra umbilicalis, provide efficient protection against premature light-induced skin aging.
In their overall effect, the ingredients of porphyry algae offer effective protection against UV-induced skin aging and can, if necessary, replace synthetic UV filters in anti-aging day care products.
