Fucus vesiculosus extract, also known as bladderwrack, is a type of brown algae (seaweed) that is edible. Its nutrient profile benefits the body when consumed, but it can also benefit skin when applied topically.
A simple fucoidan has been isolated from Fucus vesiculosus (Fujimura et al., 2002). Alginates are linear unbranched polymers containing β-(1–4)-linked D-mannuronic acid and α-(1–4)-linked L-guluronic acid residues. Sodium alginate is a natural water soluble polysaccharide that produces a gel consistency when hydrated.
One of the more notable topical benefits is how the treasure trove of antioxidants in brown algae can help defend skin’s surface from daily exposure to airborne pollutants. The antioxidants help neutralize these substances before they cause ongoing harm.
Fucus vesiculosus has an unusually high concentration of minerals, including sodium and potassium, and the full suite of essential amino acids, which can help facilitate the movement of water through skin’s uppermost layers.Fucus vesiculosus extract is filled with active ingredients, such as radical fighting phlorotannin antioxidants, bioactive polysaccharides, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, the extract fights damaging free radicals and skin aging, reduces inflammation, helps to improve skin elasticity and provides hydration to the skin.
