Prasinoguard is sustainably manufactured from a marine microalga. The alga is a naturally occurring oceanic unicellular plant which is grown in clean Norwegian seawater, in a patented system, using light and carbon dioxide. Prasinoguard polysaccharide is isolated from the cultivated algae using only physical separation technologies, which have been optimised to generate a purified polysaccharide product.
In vitro and human studies have shown a wide range of biological activities such as anti- irritant, anti-aging and anti-pollution (skin-protection) properties.
Dermatologically tested’, ‘clinically tested’, ‘clinically proven’, ‘kind to skin’, ‘mild for skin’ and ‘safe for skin’ are all substantiated for the product.
