Typical applications

Fucus vesiculosus also known as "bladderwrack" is a brown alga that occurs in many parts of the oceans.
It has been traditionally used as a food for centuries, especially in Ireland, Scotland and Great Britain.
Because of its many nutrients, it can also be used as a fertilizer in the form of mulch, which is added directly to the soil, or as part of compost.

But bladderwrack is not only interesting for humans and plants, but also for animals. Thanks to the micro-nutrients, it is ideal as an additive for animal feed.

Apart from its nutrients, bladderwrack can also be used for medical purposes. For example, it is recognised by the European Medicines Agency as an aid to weight reduction.

Fucus vesiculosus, is also used in cosmetics to soften dark circles under the eyes and reduce signs of fatigue. Bladderwrack also has a skin tightening effect, which gives the skin an overall younger appearance. For example, the cosmetics company Gallinée has developed a special cream based on Fucus vesiculosus.

The liquid is usually used in the production of cosmetics.

This product is available in the following forms of liquid extracts: glycerin extract and water-glycerin extract.

The product is also available as powder.


Typical applications in the cosmetics industry:

Fucus vesiculosus contains alginic acid, which can help soothe irritated skin as it has anti-inflammatory properties. It can be used in moisturizers and make the skin look more relaxed and younger.

By improving elasticity and refreshing the skin's appearance, Fucus vesiculosus works well as an ingredient in anti-aging cosmetics.

Like many other macroalgae, Fucus vesiculosus acts as an antioxidant and helps protect the skin from free radicals and oxidative stress.
