[25th, Mar 2014] Snow Algae Powder, the key to skin’s longevity. Snow Algae Powder is a new active to increase skin’s longevity. It is based on an extract of snow algae. Snow algae can be found in high mountain areas. An in-house tube photobioreactor was develop… to produce the algae raw material in a sustainable way. Studies confirm that Snow Algae Powder stimulates the longevity gene klotho and activates AMPK, a master switch in the cellular defense system. The klotho protein interferes with the insulin growth factor receptor signaling inducing a calorie restriction-mimetic effect. Calorie restriction is the only proven mechanism to prolong lifespan of organism. In a clinical study with multiphoton tomography, Snow Algae Powder showed an improvement of the papillary structure of the dermal epidermal junction – for a firmer and rejuvenated skin surface.
