Like all stories, we should start with “Once upon a time…” and go back to the beginning. But what if this took us more than three billion years ago? What if our protagonists were so small and only made up of one cell? Get ready, because we’re going to dive into the wonderful world of microalgae and find out what these tiny organisms can do for us these days.
First, let’s reveal who makes this reality possible. The director of this production, as if he were Steven Spielberg, is Buggypower, a biotechnology company that for over a decade has been dedicated, from Porto Santo on the paradise island of Madeira, Portugal, to sustainably reproduce what Nature has been doing for millions of years ago.
Now that you know the director of this story, let’s move on to the cast. Who are our protagonists and what makes them so important? Microalgae are neither more nor less than single-celled microorganisms that live in freshwater or marine environments and constitute the main component of phytoplankton, the base of the food chain.
In addition, they are photoautotrophic beings, therefore, their simple growth needs and their ability to adapt their metabolism to environmental conditions in which they are make them an attractive ingredient for the pharmaceutical, food and cosmetic industries. They are also air decontaminants – Microalgae feed on C02, which means a reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases.
Regarding food, in 2006 the WHO (World Health Organization) considered microalgae to be a superfood due to their high nutritional value. This fact is due to their composition rich in:
- Polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega 3 and 6)
They are micro-ingredients with macro benefits that can contribute to the improvement of our immune system, nervous system and prevention of numerous diseases.
How many changes has the planet undergone during these three billion years? Countless! However, microalgae have remained intact. If you asked Darwin, he would probably say that what’s perfect doesn’t need to be improved.
If microalgae can bring benefits when used in human nutrition, why not include them in cosmetics? Bluevert™ laboratories raised this question and guided their efforts to develop ingredients that could be included in a cosmetic line.
Years of development and research led us to find Plasmarine Active Complex™, an ingredient you may have never heard of, but which will mark a before and after on your skin.
What is Plasmarine Active Complex™ and what can it do for your skin?
It is a complex composed of microencapsulated marine microalgae and obtained exclusively through the patented Bluevert™ technology. Specifically, it is composed of two species of marine microalgae, Chlorella Vulgaris and Nannochloropsis Gaditana. Formulated in liposomes, it guarantees greater epidermal penetration.
In addition, also looking to benefit our planet, the microalgae present in Plasmarine Active Complex™ are produced in one of the most innovative facilities in the world, using exclusive and 100% sustainable technology that transforms CO2 into oxygen, preserving and cleaning the oceans.
The wide variety of active ingredients that make up microalgae make Plasmarine Active Complex™ an anti-aging cocktail with multiple benefits for your skin:
