The study of the medical properties of polysaccharides derived from seaweed led to the development of a cosmetic product line with regenerative and revitalizing effects on the skin of the face and body. Our cosmetic line is produced under the brand name “CEROXINE”. The composition of cosmetic products includes algae polysaccharides like alginate, fucoidan, and polyphenols.
Alginate — polysaccharide, a viscous rubber-like substance extracted from red, brown and some green algae. Alginate has rare properties: slowly melts in water, adsorbing it hundreds of times more than its weight, forming a gel that can withstand a large range of temperature changes – freezing, thawing. Alginic acid salts are used in medicine due to their healing features: immune modulating – protect against infections and tumors; hemostatic – treat hemorrhoids, anal fissures, bleeding wounds; adsorbing – remove radionuclides, heavy metals; regenerating – restore the skin with burns, bedsores; antihistamines – prevent allergies.
Fucoidan (fucoid acid salts) is a group of polysaccharides that are extracted from brown algae. Fucoidan has been used for many years in traditional Asian medicine as an anticoagulant, immune modulator, antithrombotic and oncoprotective agent.
Due to its regenerative properties and the ability to stimulate collagen synthesis, fucoidan has the properties of treating wounds and burns, as well as relieving allergic reactions. Several experiments have shown that fucoidan successfully promotes hair regeneration.
USE OF FUCOIDAN IN COSMETOLOGY
Numerous studies in different countries in the world show the effectiveness of fucoidan in cosmetology.
The use of fucoidan promotes regeneration of skin and restoring its natural structure.
Fucoidan inhibits collagenase and elastase enzymes, preventing the appearance of wrinkles and helping to restore skin elasticity.
Fucoidan significantly increases the ability of skin to withstand the stress factors of the environment – sun, wind, frost, increases skin resistance against pathogen microorganisms.
Fucoidan protects the skin from ultraviolet radiation, effectively and quickly restores the skin after excessive sun treatments.
Fucoidan is recommended for use after cosmetic procedures (peeling, mesotherapy).
Polyphenols is a family of powerful plant antioxidants. They stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, prevent the destruction of main components of skin structure. Polyphenols interact with fatty acids, thereby protecting cells from free radicals. It is believed that polyphenols have a therapeutic effect, prevent the appearance of small wrinkles, acne, skin surface irregularities, hyperpigmentation.
