Snow Algae Powder
Beauty sleep for skin rejuvenation
Snow Algae Powder is based on the extract of a unique extremophile algae that has managed to create survival strategies which enable them to grow on glaciers and in permanent snow. In order to survive in these harsh conditions, the snow algae have developed a kind of “sleeping beauty” tactic, which is similar to hibernating, in which the organism slows down and reduces caloric intake.
Snow Algae Powder stimulates the longevity gene Klotho and activates AMPK, a master switch in the cellular defense and energy system. Snow Algae Powder clearly improves skin structure, slows down aging process of skin cells and increases production of collagen.
Snow algae are single-cell algae with the unique ability to actively live at a temperature of approximately 0 °C. Snow algae grow in areas where there is either an Alpine or polar climate in which there is snow all year round (permanent snow). The normally green algae adapt to the extreme environmental conditions: When the UV radiation is increased in early summer the algae turn red as they produce considerably more carotenoid pigments than chlorophyll ones. The production of other secondary metabolites such as biopolymers, antifreeze glycoproteins (AFGPs), stress modifiers and osmotically active amino acids and sugars also help these extremophile algae to survive in their habitat.
Have a look at the movie below where Bernhard Henes, Head of Product Development, explains the production of snow algae.
