Pelvetia Canaliculata (Algae) Extract description

_Pelvetia canaliculata_ is a type of brown seaweed also known as Channeled wrack. This hearty, upper shore-growing seaweed is known to survive in harsh conditions, including extended periods of low tide, although it requires submersion for maximum nutrient uptake. Applied to skin, it exerts antioxidant, soothing, and hydrating effects. Its antioxidant ability is particularly good at neutralising the damage from airborne metallic pollutants. _Pelvetica canaliculata_ is also a rich source of skin-beneficial amino acids, carotenoids, and polyphenolic compounds that can neutralise collagen-degrading enzymes before they harm skin.
