Get Up to 20% More Moisture Without Damaging Our Earth

Euglena Gracilis is a million year old algae that is grown in fermenters (much like brewing beer) here in Ontario Canada. It has unique properties that make it useful for skin care - it aids in collagen production and moisture retention, up to 20% more than hyaluronic acid. And its spongey cellulose also helps make our compostable packaging more flexible.

The Ingredients You Already Love & the Ingredients You're Going to Love

We use clinical doses of proven ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and squalene, made in Canada, where the regulations are among the most stringent in the world.

We also use Euglena Gracilis, our small batch fermented, single cell algae, that produces a highly pure and crystaline form of beta glucan, shown to increase collagen production and moisture retention - up to 20% more than hyaluronic acid. It's a great compliment to hyaluronic acid because it draws moisture from within the body, while hyaluronic acid tends to draw moisture from outside the body.

Originally used in wound treatment - to aid in collagen production - beta glucan became a natural fit for skin care, and our beta glucans are the first derived from this naturally fermented algae.

Beta-glucans acts as a humectant in the skin, and as such lock hydration in and prevent moisture loss. Interestingly, like retinol and hyaluronic acid which are two of the cosmetic industry’s most impactful products due to their high-water capacity - beta-glucans can do the same job - if not better. In fact, studies suggest that beta-glucans can lock in 20% more moisture than hyaluronic acid, and thus, beta-glucan can plump up the skin and make the skin feel even more supple.
Beta-glucans are immune-modulating compounds and have proven efficacy in this domain. Specifically, beta-glucans protect against encroaching bacteria that can disrupt the skin's barrier by stimulating macrophages and other immune cells to attack and protect against pathogens. For this reason, beta-glucans are especially well-suited for people with dry, rough, or cracked skin. In fact, for people with compromised skin barriers like those with eczema or dermatitis, beta-glucans can help prevent pathogens from passing through the skin barrier creating an all-natural option to improve skin health.
Beta-glucans are being highly investigated for their anti-aging effects. In fact, this is one of the skincare concerns that beta-glucans primarily address. In this regard, one study found that despite its comparatively large molecular size, beta-glucans can deeply penetrate the epidermis to effectively plump up fine lines and wrinkles.
