The hunt for a green energy has had an unexpected side benefit: antiaging skincare. In 2003, a team of talented biotech scientists from San Francisco met to develop a renewable energy solution using--wait for it--microalgae. To their surprise, they discovered that a compound surrounding the microalgae was capable of regenerating and protecting living cells. They named the compound Alguronic Acid and created a line of antiaging products featuring the powerful ingredient. True to the founders' scientific background, Algenist conducts rigorous testing of all its products.
