Renew With Chlorella

EWG Rating

EWG Score of 1 for Chlorella

Scientific Name: {Chlorella Vulgaris}
Common Name: {Dermochlorella Algae, Green Algae}

Chlorella is a freshwater green algae that can improve facial elasticity and firmness. Initially found in Eastern medicine, Chlorella is making its way west.

Western cultures use it as a health supplement and topical application. Moreover, its main skin-friendly component is a slew of antioxidants, which protect the skin from damage caused by too much sun exposure or coming into contact with a chemical pollutant.

The antioxidants in Chlorella repel free radicals as they try to enter the skin. Further, they neutralize them so that they cannot hurt the surrounding cells.

Historically, this alga was used to keep the skin healthy, from ulcers to infections, rashes, cuts, and even bruises. Chlorella both tightens and firms, improving the elasticity of the face.

Radiant and Rejuvenating

The antioxidants, along with Vitamins B and C, encourage cell turnover. Additionally, using Chlorella in your skincare products is an excellent way to reveal brighter, younger-looking skin. As we age, our skin slows down its production of new cells.

Dead and dying cells remain on the face. This process can create dull, gray, wrinkled complexion. Once new cells are produced, dead cells are sloughed away.

This reveals fresh, renewed skin. The face looks younger, less wrinkled, and more radiant.

Further, Chlorella soothes many internal conditions. For example, Hypertension, resulting from inflammation, is reduced. It:

  • aids digestion
  • helps with the proper absorption of calcium
  • fights bloat and pain from menstrual cramps and fibromyalgia

Not only is it an antioxidant, but it also works to remove toxins from the skin, which can contribute to a dull appearance and can speed up the aging process. In addition, it has numerous nutritional and cosmetic benefits for skincare, such as in a face mask and Chlorella treatments that firm and improve facial elasticity.

External and Internal Uses

Taken internally, collagen can rebuild. When applied topically, it works through the layers of skin to battle free radicals, reduces inflammation, plumps the skin's appearance, and fights photodamage from over-exposure to the sun.

With iron, zinc, and many different kinds of acids, applying Chlorella can help build firmer, more resilient skin. In addition, if your skin is sensitive to light, wind, cold, or pollutants, Chlorella can help reduce the appearance of premature aging caused by environmental exposure.
