Known to be rich in Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, and B12 as well as Calcium, Sodium, Iron and Potassium. It has been shown to help inhibit an enzymatic reaction that breaks down hyaluronic acid. Researchers have learned that this specific type of sea kelp (Phytessence Wakame) supports collagen and elastin by blocking an enzymatic reaction that breaks down the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is one of the significant main ingredients in the matrix of the skin which provides skin structure and cushioning and holds moisture. It acts as a support layer to collagen and elastin fibres. It binds collagen and elastin fibres together, so that skin is firmer.
