Solazyme, Inc. (NASDAQ: SZYM), a renewable oil and bioproducts company, and maker of the skincare brand, Algenist®, today announced that the line has won the prestigious 2014 Marie Claire Prix d’ Excellence de la Beauté in France. The award, which was presented at the Les Prix d’Excellence de la Beauté Marie Claire 2014 annual event, honors exceptional advancements in innovation, efficacy, texture, design, and communication of cosmetic brands. A robust panel of French and international beauty journalists, presided by Ariane Goldet, the renowned Health and Beauty Editor of Marie Claire France, judged the competition, which included hundreds of product and brand entries. Algenist is one of only two US brands to win a prize at the 2014 awards, and was unanimously selected by the judging panel.

“Algenist delivers cutting-edge, scientific innovation based on the incredible regenerative powers of microalgae, providing visible results that demonstrate significant anti-aging properties,” said Frederic Stoeckel, SVP & General Manager, Solazyme Health Sciences, in accepting the award. “Algenist is proud to be delivering un-matched product efficacy to consumers and we are honored to be recognized for these advancements by this esteemed panel of judges and Marie Claire.”

“Algenist is one of today’s leading skincare brands that encompasses discovery, innovation, and importantly, results,” said Ariane Goldet, Health and Beauty Editor, Marie Claire. “For the past 28 years, we have searched for trailblazing products and brands that couple the latest breakthroughs with the latest trends, and Algenist with their breakthrough, hero-ingredients, Alguronic Acid ® and Microalgae Oil, do all of this and more. They are a pioneering brand and we are pleased to place them amongst the 2014 Maria Claire Prix d’ Excellence de la Beauté winners.”

About Algenist

Algenist is an award-winning skincare brand harnessing the remarkable regenerative properties of microalgae and rooted in breakthrough biotechnology innovation. After a dedicated team of scientists originally tasked with researching renewable energy solutions discovered Alguronic Acid ® (patented), a powerful regenerative compound produced by microalgae that functions to protect and regenerate the single-celled organism in harsh environmental conditions, it has since become a principal ingredient in many of Algenist’s prestige products. The line has since expanded to tap many of the additional benefits brought forth by this remarkable organism and today, the brand remains dedicated to using groundbreaking science to formulate revolutionary skincare innovations poised for any skin type at any age. Committed to proven results, Alguronic Acid and Microalgae Oil have undergone 3rd party clinical testing for scientifically-based efficacy claims. All Algenist products are consumer and dermatologist-tested, non-comedogenic, and hypoallergenic.
