Ever heard of Chlorella? It's a green micro-algae enriched with nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and chlorophyll. It has been used forever to treat inflamed skin. If you have rosacea, psoriasis, flaky patches of dry irritated skin, you've had the misfortune of having a skin condition that is relatively hard to treat, but here's the good news: in one study, Chlorella scientifically proved to significantly reduce redness, improve the healing of wounds and relieve irritated skin when it was applied topically on mice over the period of only 14 days.
Certain extracts, when taken in orally, actually have less of an impact on the skin than when they're applied topically: Chlorella is one of them. While taking it in orally as a supplement is incredible in reducing chronic-inflammation (when inflammation in the entire body persists for a while) applying it topically through a dry extract mask that contains little to no clay is an amazing way to reduce inflammation in the skin and improve the skin's appearance. It basically helps improve blood circulation in blood vessels underneath the skin while also nourishing your skin with phytonutrients, amino acids, and chlorophyll. All together it helps detoxify the skin from heavy metals, accumulated toxins such as pesticides, herbicides and other pollutants we are exposed to during the day while also improving blood circulation beneath the skin. Chlorella supports our bodies natural detoxification system in helping it drain out stored toxins that might be placed in your skin and other places in our bodies while supporting blood circulation which equates to improved oxygen & nutrient delivery to the skin. When our skin is better oxygenated/better nourished as a result of improved circulation, it can reveal its vibrant skin-tone and can preserve itself better over time. Inversely, when our skin is lacking oxygen, it can start to resemble a dried raisin over time (eek!) and a nutritionally deficient skin becomes impaired: it can't repair itself when damaged from the sun, scarred by acne nor regenerate itself to stay youthful & firm. To add to all its already incredible benefits, Chlorella is also loaded with antioxidants which means it will arm your body with what protects its cells from free-radical damage.
Chlorella is really one of the most powerful & beautifying ingredients you can choose to incorporate it in your smoothies, in your water in the morning and most importantly in your face masks to make sure it gets to your skin where it is needed. You can find chlorella in our Rejuvenating Dust which also contains a large amount of anti-inflammatory, soothing and anti-aging extracts with the slightest percentage of clay. Its low percentage of clay make it safe for all skin types specifically for you ladies who want to benefit from Chlorella and its ability to reduce your skin-inflammation.
We've chosen to incorporate thin-cell wall, organic chlorella which means it is easier to assimilate for your body and better biocompatible for your skin to absorb it and send it where it needs to go.
If you've got rosacea, acne-scars, psoriasis, or dry irritated skin, you might want to give chlorella a go ladies!
