Alguard Enhances Skin

HAIFA, IsraelResults of a new clinical study by the Israeli Skin Research Institute showed Alguard (from Frutarom Ltd.), an all-natural cosmetic ingredient derived from a polysaccharide surrounding red microalgae, provided immediate beauty enhancement when applied to skin. Ten women applied a small amount of Alguard on half their face compared to a control cream on the other half. Subjects were monitored for one hour in a controlled environment. A clear reduction in fine-line length and depth, as well as a 24-percent average reduction in skin roughness was observed.

Whats exciting about this study is within an hour of using Alguard users saw a change in the appearance of their skin, whereas it can take weeks for other cosmetic products to produce a noticeable change to skin appearance, explained Anat Stern, MSc, product manager of cosmetic ingredients for Frutarom. Alguard acts as a triple-guard solution for a variety of cosmetic applications. First as an insult guard directly protecting skin from irritants and oxidative damage; second as a microguard, countering bacterial adhesion; and third, as a sun guard to protect skin immune cells from UVB radiation. It is highly stable in a wide range of temperatures and pH and can be combined in almost any formulation."
