Blue Micro-algae

Phytoceane Homme (for men) includes Jania Rubens - like all Phytoceane products - but it also contains a blue micro-algae.

Phytoceane utilizes the power of the sea to help care for men’s skin. In addition to its unique characteristics, it is subjected each day to shaving, hard water, soap and a lack of hydration. Based on these observations, Phytocéane has expanded its range to include a line of skin care adapted to men’s needs, while providing immediate results.
Using expert knowledge of the marine world, our researchers have formulated each product of the men’s collection with vegetal coral, and blue micro-algae; these ingredients are renowned for their protective, moisturizing, remineralizing and smoothing properties. This exclusive cocktail is combined with unique natural ingredients that meet the special needs of each skin type.

These blue micro-algae come from the crystal-clear waters of Klamath Lake. They are renowned for their exceptional nutritive properties.
At the heart of Oregon, amidst a region of intense volcanic activity, this lake boasts a rare preserved ecosystem. It benefits from exceptional sunlight, 300 days of the year continuously fed by rivers and cascades from the melting snow and glaciers of the volcanic “Cascade” mountain chain, the water is absolutely pure. You can see 30 meters in depth with the naked eye.
This is the only place on earth where these micro-algae grow in their pure form. They help maintain the unique ecosystem of this setting.

Born 3.5 million years ago, these were the first microorganisms to synthesize oxygen and feature photosynthetic properties.
Like humans and animals, their cellular envelope is made of proteins.
Like bacteria, their genetic information is distributed throughout the entire cell, not just in the nucleus. This helps them to rapidly adapt to change.
These algae were chosen by our researchers for their exceptional properties and composition.

An Exceptional Composition
A concentrate rich in essential amino acids: lysine, proline, and cysteine.
It contains about 65% proteins and 46% essential amino acids. These acids are essential components of collagen fibers. They help produce hormones and enzymes.

A unique vitamin cocktail:
A: helps slow signs of skin aging
E: anti-free radical, reduces the risk of loss of elasticity
C: makes up the collagen and elastin fibers, anti-free radical
B1: improves microcirculation and the oxygenation of tissues
B2: improves cellular renewal
A great diversity of minerals and trace elements:
Copper: important for enzyme activity, increases cellular energy and the production of collagen and elastin
Manganese: protects free radicals
Iron: important for cellular respiration and tissue oxygenation

Unique Properties
Thickening of the epidermis.
Reduction of the thickness of the stratum corneum due to slowed formation of corneocytes. Improvement of epidermal renewal due to increased vitality of the keratinocytes of the basal layer.
Densification of the dermis.
Inhibition of collagenase (enzyme responsible for the breakdown of collagen). Protection of collagen with dense support tissue.

An Exceptional Composition
Corallina officinalis: reduces blotchiness, improves cellular cohesion and tissue oxygenation. Soothing, desensitizing and anti-irritant properties.
Jania rubens: vegetal coral with moisturizing, balancing and remineralizing properties.
