AcquaSeal® Algae


AcquaSeal® Algae is an oil soluble active designed to promote youthful skin, through several different mechanisms such as reducing ‘inflammaging’ and increasing cellular proliferation. Derived from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, we use a proprietary technology to isolate and extract lipid fractions from this sustainable green algae source. Green algae inhabits a broad range of extreme habitats including fresh water, seawater, damp soil, and even snow. As a result of thriving in such diverse and extreme environments, green algae produce an array of unique bioactive complex lipids and fatty acids. The application of such lipids found in AcquaSeal® Algae can help to provide cellular renewal, cellular hydration, cellular proliferation, and anti-inflammation benefits to defend skin against the signs of aging.

Personal care and cosmetic ingredients that are sourced from nature, inspired by nature, bio-based, and sustainable are becoming more popular among consumers as natural beauty continues to gain traction in the global market. Green algae have a great potential to generate oils and other valuable byproducts in a sustainable fashion, that can be used in cosmetics to endow the dermis with restorative and protective properties, plumping the skin by rehydrating skin cells.

AcquaSeal® Algae contains algal lipid fractions derived from the green algae Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. These green algae when grown under defined high UV conditions produce a very high number of chloroplasts. After cell disruption, the chloroplasts are concentrated via density gradient separation. With proprietary technology, lipid fractions from the chloroplasts are isolated, providing cellular renewal, cellular hydration, cellular proliferation, and anti-inflammation benefits


Skin aging is a complicated process. The aging we observe as individuals results from changes within the skin at the molecular, cellular and macroscopic level. The rate at which our appearance changes (deteriorates) is due to genetic factors, environmental factors, life style choices and of course time itself.

A youthful and healthy appearance is the goal of almost everyone. To achieve this goal requires an effort. Cosmetic products can both reverse and prevent some of the age associated changes in appearance. These “corrections” require intervention in molecular and cellular processes which have been changed over time. A greater understanding of how the skin functions has given the cosmetic scientist a greater arsenal of tools whereby to correct some of the changes that result in aged skin. Over time, and with UV damage and other external traumas, skin biology becomes reprogrammed. Changes from oxidative damage and DNA replication errors result in an altered cell metabolism. To effectively erase these errors, corrections must be implemented at the genomic level, the proteomic level, and the metabolomic level.

AcquaSeal® Algae has been designed to address damaged skin and prevent further damage through several specific actions. AcquaSeal® Algae is an activator of nuclear transcription factors (RxR and PPAR) resulting in a stimulation of epidermal and dermal cell proliferation. A hallmark sign of aging skin is the reduction cellular reproduction. Slower proliferation results in a slower repair capacity, diminished tissue function, an accumulation of cellular errors and an overall deterioration of skin appearance.

Skin inflammation also has been shown to be a major causative agent of skin aging. Daily inflammation from, UV, and pollutants, and “invisible irritation” as a by-product of metabolism causes what has been termed by some, as “Inflammaging.” As data will show, skin irritation is reduced dramatically whether induced from a variety of skin assaults. While we have focused on measuring the end results of reducing inflammation, the lipids in AcquaSeal® Algae work by reducing NF-κB activation, as well as TNF-α (a pro-inflammatory cytokine).


AcquaSeal® Algae is an oil soluble product designed to promote youthful skin, through several different mechanisms. Capable of providing cellular renewal, cellular hydration, cellular proliferation, and anti-inflammation benefits to defend against aging skin, AcquaSeal® Algae can be used in a wide variety of cosmetic and personal care applications. This unique ingredient can also be used to capitalize on the trends for sea-inspired cosmetics, while providing a young, refreshed look straight from the sea.
