Yemoja_New_Microalgae_ActiveYemoja, Ltd., introduces its algae-derived external polysaccharide sulphate (EPS) serving the skin-deep beauty sector. The new topically applied bioactive ingredient from the Porphyridium cruentum species of microalgae is in high demand by the cosmetics industry for its naturally tendering anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and rejuvenating properties.

Produced from Red Algae

The ingredient, branded EPS-Revive, is the first bio-active ingredient to be produced from the red algae in a tightly controlled lab environment using high-precision and fast-track photobioreactor technology. The product launch brings to market new levels of quality, yield, and consistency.

Available peer-reviewed research data point to the soluble EPS fraction’s prodigious antioxidant, moisturizing, and anti-aging activities.

While the demand for the product is high, Yemoja is a rare player in that we can provide a steady supply of the valuable and standardized raw material. We cultivate only natural wild-strain algae through an automated, fully controlled and contaminant-free downstream process. We use no chemicals or solvents, and we do not exploit any natural resources from the environment,” commented Erez Ashkenazi, CEO of Yemoja.

Protects Skin from Aging

A recent ex-vivo trial has already endorsed the anti-aging and anti-inflammatory effects of EPS Revive. In the study, the EPS was shown to preserve the integrity of the connective tissue between the dermal layers in a depleted culture medium. It is believed that its sulphate content and structure is what renders it an excellent reactive oxygen species scavenger and protects the skin from aging. It also inhibited various inflammatory markers, specifically TNF-a and IL6 cytokines.

EPS-Revive already has undergone clinical trials in Gdansk, Poland, with results supporting its safety for topical use. It is formulated to be easily integrated into creams and lotions and various other topical applications. Further clinical trials are in the works over the next year to evaluate all the effects of this product for maintaining skin-health with regards to all skin-types.

We are exploring possibilities for integrating our aqueous solution into food supplements and branching out to the beauty-from-within sector,” added Ashkenazi.

Porphyridium polysaccharide is a potent antioxidant and effective anti-inflammatory agent that bears a high affinity to skin support and already is in use in nearly 300 cosmetic formulations worldwide. We also plan to investigate its possible capacity for alleviating medical dermal issues, such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis in the near future”, concluded Amikam Bar-Gill, PhD, CTO of Yemoja.
