Chorella (Dermochlorella) Green micro-algae are rich in proteins, mainly in the amino acids that constitute the dermis fibers and the expressed specific proteins that produce antioxidant activity. Studies of the effect of an extract obtained from the micro-algae Chlorella vulgaris, named Dermochlorella, on skin restructuring, skin micro-circulation and skin protection against UV irradiation. Effect on skin restructuring: an approach was tested by molecular biology (RNAm) according to the DNA mini-chips and RT-PCR methods. It allowed studying the effect of Chlorella vulgaris on human dermal fibroblast genes expression and thus measuring its effect on the genes expression of the different extracellular matrix components. Moreover, clinical tests assessed the effect of a cream containing Chlorella vulgaris at 1% on stretch marks, skin firmness and tone. Effect on skin micro-circulation: an in vitro test assessed its efficacy on angio-genesis. Clinical studies assessed the efficacy of a cream containing Chlorella vulgaris at 1% on vascular imperfections, dark circles and lymphatic drainage.

From Science: GLYCERIN, GLYCERINE, or GLYCEROL (in the pharmacy GLYCERINUM), a sugar-like substance obtainable from most natural fatty bodies by the action of alkalies and similar reagents, whereby the fats are decomposed, water being taken up, and glycerin being formed together with the alkaline salt of some particular acid (varying with the nature of the fat). Owing to their possession of this common property, these natural fatty bodies and various artificial derivatives of glycerin, which behave in the same way when treated with alkalies, are known as glycerides. This decomposition into an organic acid and a substance of more or less neutral character is a typical kind of reaction with numerous classes of organic bodies, and is termed saponification, from the circumstance that the ordinary process of soap-making consists simply in the formation from natural fatty bodies and alkalies of the alkaline salts of the fatty acids thence derivable, soap being a mixture of these alkaline salts in various proportions, according to the particular purposes
Hemp Seed Oil: is sought after because it is considered as one of the nutrient pack plant oils available and very versatile.

Moisture Creme: first and foremost is a man made viscosity. Petroleum in the 20th century became wildly popular replacing natural cold cremes and lead to the discovery of making cremes. These creams replaced natural plant oils for skin moisture. Creme is a mixture of oil and water. Emulsifiers are used to blend them into a creme and stabilizers are used to keep them from separating for the a base and adding other ingredients. Thus a cream is a type of emulsion, made of water and oil for texture.
