Le Fucus : Hydratant, émollient, protecteur et apaisant

Fucus: Moisturizing, emollient, protective and soothing

What is Fucus?

Fucus, also known as “kelp”, is a marine algae widely distributed on rocky coasts. This brown algae is full of nutrients and minerals beneficial to the skin, providing deep hydration, an emollient effect, effective protection and soothing action.

Benefits for the skin:

  1. Moisturizing Properties:

Fucus is a natural source of hydration for the skin. Thanks to its richness in polysaccharides, amino acids and minerals, it helps retain water in the superficial layers of the epidermis, thus maintaining an optimal level of hydration. By forming a protective film on the surface of the skin, Fucus prevents transepidermal water loss and maintains the suppleness and elasticity of the skin. This hydrating action is essential to maintain the skin's moisture balance, leaving it soft, supple and perfectly hydrated.

2. Emollient Effect:

In addition to its moisturizing properties, Fucus acts as a natural emollient for the skin. By smoothing the surface of the epidermis, it reduces sensations of roughness and tightness, leaving the skin soft and velvety to the touch. Thanks to its emollient molecules, Fucus softens the skin and improves its texture, leaving it supple and smooth. This emollient action is ideal for dry and dehydrated skin, as well as areas prone to irritation and redness. By strengthening the skin barrier, Fucus helps prevent moisture loss and maintain skin health.

3. Protective Effect:

Fucus offers effective protection against external aggressions such as pollution, UV rays and free radicals. Thanks to its content of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, it neutralizes damage caused by free radicals and prevents premature aging of the skin. By forming a protective shield on the surface of the skin, Fucus strengthens the skin barrier and prevents environmental aggressions.

4. Soothing Action:

Finally, Fucus has soothing properties for the skin. Thanks to its natural compounds, such as polysaccharides and phenols, it calms skin irritations, redness and inflammation. By reducing feelings of discomfort and tightness, Fucus provides a feeling of well-being and relief to the skin. This soothing action is ideal for sensitive and reactive skin, as well as skin prone to irritation and allergies. By calming skin reactions, Fucus helps restore a soothed and healthy-looking complexion.
