Typical applications

Alaria esculenta, also known as winged kelp, is a brown algae found in the northern seas of the world.

The winged kelp is also known as "Irish Wakame" because it is used as a regional substitute for traditional Wakame in various dishes.
Alaria esculenta is also used to produce a natural thickening agent, alginate.

In the past, Alaria esculenta has also been used as animal feed by farmers in coastal areas.

The winged kelp is rich in nutrients, vitamins and trace elements and is therefore well suited as an additive for healthy food.

Alaria esculenta is also used in many different cosmetic products, including anti-aging creams, face masks and moisturizers, thanks to its many nutrients.

This product is available in the following forms: Alaria esculenta powder, Alaria esculenta flakes and dried Alaria esculenta raw algae. This product is also available as a non-organic variant.

Typical applications in the cosmetics industry:

Alaria esculenta is a powerful antioxidant that can be used in cosmetics to protect the skin from oxidative stress. In doing so, it provides anti-aging benefits, which are based on its rich content of amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

Alaria esculenta helps maintain skin suppleness and elasticity by reducing the activity of collagenase and elastase. These enzymes and processes contribute to the degradation of collagen and elastase, which in turn negatively affects the appearance of the skin. Alaria esculenta prevents this with its functional ingredients.

It stimulates the synthesis of hyaluronic acid and supports the skin barrier function. As a result, it can help to improve the moisture content of the skin.
