The Benefits of Sea Kelp (Macrocystis Pyrifera) Extract in Skin Care

It seems like there’s a new, innovative ingredient that’s included in skin care every year. From hyaluronic acid, to retinoids and resveratrol, the amount of possible skin-loving extracts, antioxidants, alpha hydroxyl acids and ingredients are never ending.

Well, it’s time to add yet another wonderful little miracle to the list.

Sea kelp, or macrocystis pyrifera, has also been studied in labs for its possible link to promoting a plump, youthful look by soothing the skin and improving cellular circulation. This relatively new discovery is not well documented yet, but from the  effects we’ve seen so far, the results justify its exclusive inclusion in our MD® Ultimate Skin Brightening Anti-Aging Cream.

What makes kelp extract so beneficial for the skin?
The kelp itself is a brown sea algae, or seaweed, that is normally found in the Antarctic Ocean.  Because of its rich iodine, mineral, anti-oxidant and natural anti-inflammatory aspects, kelp is believed to moisturize, soften and help skin retain its moisture.  Kelp also contains elements that help remove toxins, soothe and can easily penetrate the skin for instant hydration. It also aids in keeping skin smooth. This nourishing extract has no adverse side effects and works well with other antioxidants and vitamins such as Vitamin C and E.

Research has also shown that macrocyctis pyrifera extract can help prevent wrinkles with its rich moisturizing advantage.  Another plus to its possible anti-aging hook is its silicone content, which is believed to help prevent the skin from sagging. In spas, kelp is often used as body treatments to temporarily tighten the skin. This benefit is easily translated onto one’s face. Kelp can also help prevent the breakdown of elastin and collagen, promoting a youthful appearance.

MD® Ultimate Skin Brightening Anti-Aging Cream’s main focus is on this remarkable extract, which will help smooth, soften and nourish your skin along with Vitamins E and C. By applying this after a gentle face cleansing twice a day, you can see results in as little as 30 days.  Let MD’s anti-aging cream help diminish the appearance of age spots, wrinkles, and pores and visibly rejuvenate your skin – all with extra brightening effects to deal with discoloration, age spots or uneven skin tone. 

MD® Ultimate Skin Brightening Anti-Aging Cream also provides antioxidant protection and heals sun damage while inhibiting melanin production and hydrating the skin, leaving your skin looking flawless.
