Lubrizol Life Science (LLS) Beauty’s AlgaPūr™ high stability, high oleic (HSHO) algae oil has been found to have additional benefits for hair and skin.
AlgaPūr™ HSHO algae oil contains more than 90% of beneficial Omega-9 (oleic acid in the form of triglycerides) in a highly stable, liquid-based formula. New testing by LLS Beauty shows that it:
- Nourishes the hair follicle.
- Protects against hair fiber lipid degradation upon UV exposure, with antioxidant properties.
- Protects colored hair fibers.
- Supports the scalp microbiome.
These are in addition to the benefits shown by initial testing, which found that AlgaPūr™ HSHO algae oil protects hair fibers from breakage, repairs split ends, provides shine, controls frizz, improves manageability, moisturizes the scalp and smooths hair.
The benefits of AlgaPūr™ HSHO algae oil are not limited to the hair and scalp, however; it also helps the skin.
The ingredient promotes healthy skin through increased moisturization, skin barrier protection, photodamage repair and improved skin barrier protection. Tests show it improves skin hydration 15% within 24 hours of application, decreases transepidermal water loss by 28% over 24 hours and improves elastin synthesis by 82%, among other benefits.
Its light, non-oily texture makes AlgaPūr™ HSHO algae oil ideal for hair care, hair color and scalp formulations and skin care.
This multifunctional ingredient is derived from microalgae originally sourced from chestnut tree sap with a high sustainability profile. It is vegan and is produced through a fermentation process with a low carbon and water use footprint. It requires little land use and is readily biodegradable.
