Algenist, a leading anti-aging skincare brand, today announced that its new product, Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil, is now available internationally on store shelves at Sephora. The new anti-aging serum is the first commercial product to feature Solazyme’s Microalgae Oil. The patent-pending advanced Microalgae Oil was developed by Solazyme, a renewable oil and bioproducts company. In addition to Sephora and Sephora inside jcpenney, the new product can be found at Space NK, QVC, Sephora.com and Algenist.com.
The Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil is formulated with patent-pending Microalgae Oil, an ingredient rich in Oleic Acid, a compound naturally produced by the skin; Phycosterols, a precursor to Vitamin D; and Tocopherols, which offer powerful antioxidant functions. Data from independent, third-party in vitro testing of Microalgae Oil showed a 42% increase in cell regeneration and 31% decrease in cell damage versus untreated cells. Additional data from independent, third-party in vivo testing indicated that skin treated with Microalgae Oil was five times more hydrated 24 hours after application versus untreated skin . Customer trial data also indicated that after 10 days of use, the Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil improved the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, suppleness, and texture for the majority of participants.
“We believe that the scientific formulation of the Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil is unmatched by any other beauty oil on the market, delivering the performance benefits of a serum combined with the unique experience of an oil, all from biotechnology,” said Frederic Stoeckel, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Health Sciences at Solazyme. “Microalgae Oil provide the basis for a truly revolutionary formula that we believe quickly replenishes the skin with essential nutrients, while creating incredible results within as little as 10 days of use.”
“We’re committed to providing beauty offerings that are backed by incredible innovation, and Algenist’s biotechnology platform has consistently been a brand to deliver the latest in biotechnology,” said Priya Venkatesh, VP/DMM Skincare, Sephora. “Our customers were among the first to experience the skincare benefits of microalgae, and now we’ll again see the remarkable results Algenist’s Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil brings to the skin.”
