The Superfood Hero Ingredient from the Sea

At the heart of our Replenishing Balm is the heavenly Spirulina Algae - a key ingredient to calmness and recovery. Spirulina contains Phycocyanin, a natural pigment that provides the deep, comforting blue hue of our Replenishing Balm. An essential superfood and adaptogen packed with minerals and vitamins, and provides powerful antioxidant protection.

Sourced from the sea, as well as freshwater lakes, rivers, and ponds, spirulina has thrived for centuries and is known to be one of the oldest life forms on Earth. It’s ability to adapt and overcome harsh and extreme environmental conditions has allowed this plant to evolve into a potent, high-performing ingredient, boasting superpowers and supercharged nutrients that benefit the skin. Known for our Estate’s Extremophyte™ Plants, we even joke that Spirulina is in fact the world’s first Extremophyte plant and a perfect addition to our wildly potent ingredients.

A sea of nourishment for skin, brimming with nutrients, minerals, vitamins, proteins, amino acids and essential lipids to help fend off free radicals and purify the skin. Due to the rich amount of Phycocyanin, Spirulina is a deep blue-green color and generates ample amounts of Vitamin C to deliver antioxidant benefits and rescue troubled skin for a rebirth of radiance. Like the calming, gentle movements of the deep blue sea, the Spirulina in the Replenishing Balm brings comfort and clarity to stressed skin.

Spirulina contains significant amounts of calcium, niacin, potassium, magnesium, B vitamins and iron, that support a healthy Mediterranean diet. This superfood has been used as a nutritional supplement for centuries; the first recorded consumption of Spirulina dates back to the Kanem Empire (9th Century), Aztecs and other Mesoamericans. Like it’s ability to regenerate over the years, Spirulina restores skin’s vitality and provides whole-body wellness. Replenishing Balm envelopes and locks in the phytonutrients and omega fatty acids from Spirulina, feeding and nurturing the skin to help support its natural moisture barrier. Influenced by the vastness of nature and benefits of Spirulina, Replenishing Balm gives the skin a rest, providing nutrients and hydration to fatigued skin, restoring its overall luminosity.
