Preventing Cell Damage
Most species of green algae live in fresh water. Unlike many other groups of algae, green algae are quite similar to plants. They use chlorophyll for photosynthesis, for example, which gives them their characteristic green color.
As a rich source of proteins, vitamins and minerals, green algae have been an important component of the human diet for centuries. But now the beauty industry has started to embrace their wide variety of benefits as well.
Green algae hydrate the skin and improve the skin texture. They offer anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and can protect against cell damage, in addition to an excellent smoothing effect.
