Spirulina Powder is a Blue / Green alga that grows in pristine Lakes, Ponds and Rivers. It is a well-documented modern-day superfood due to its high concentration of carotenoids. It is a dark green powder rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Vitamin B12, plus various Minerals and Fatty Acids.
Spirulina can boost the overall health and radiant appearance of your skin, as well as preventing acne build up and swelling. Rich in nutrients, vitamins and both fatty and amino acids, Spirulina decreases inflammation, tones the skin and encourages cell turnover to promote a more youthful-looking.
As with many superfood skincare ingredients, Spirulina also works wonders on dull and congested skin as it gently detoxifies and encourages cell renewal. By encouraging the shedding of dead skin cells, it helps to maintain a healthy, lit-from-within glow.
