A marine ferment of Sargassum vulgare, rich in bioactive phlorotannins, that stimulate the skin’s natural Nucleotide Excision process of DNA repair. DermalRx® FSE offers strong anti-oxidant protection It also provides strong anti-pollution activity while inhibiting oxidation and inflammation.
Sargassum vulgare, the species used in DermalRx® FSE, grows in shallow coastal areas of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. It also thrives as large, free-floating mats, most notably in the vast Sargasso Sea area of the North Atlantic. Because of its growth habit, thriving at the water’s surface in tropical and semi-tropical areas, S. vulgare is constantly exposed to intense, DNA-damaging UV radiation from sunlight. To counter this severe stress, the plant contains high levels of phlorotannins.
