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 third party in-vitro testing. All Algenist products are consumer and dermatologist-tested, non-comedogenic, and hypoallergenic. About Solazyme Solazyme, Inc.
