Oxygen is needed for health, well being and a beautiful skin. Our organism requires oxygen in its molecular form (O²), i.e. two combined atoms of oxygen. This perfect couple can be separated by cause of external negative influences (stress, smog, UV rays etc.), which leads to the creation of free oxygen atoms, so-called “free radicals”.
Those free atoms are now looking for a new partner atom, to become molecules and be part of a pair again. The free radical takes anything that is available. It might steal an atom from DNA molecules or molecules from the cell membrane. This process of appropriation is called oxidation. An unhealthy chain reaction is set off and the molecules that were attacked now become free radicals themselves.
Free Radicals and Oxidative Stress – what is that?
While looking for a new partner atom, free radicals are very aggressive and attack the first intact molecule they can find, in order to steal its partner. The more free radicals, the faster and unhealthier the chain reaction. When oxidation in our body increases alarmingly, we speak of oxidative stress. The damages caused by free radicals are noticeable on the skin’s surface as wrinkly, saggy, grey skin. In addition to the body’s own defense mechanism, the so-called antioxidants (free radical scavengers) can stop the dangerous chain reaction. They offer their partner molecule voluntarily without becoming free radicals themselves. Some of the most potent antioxidants are vitamins, minerals and trace elements. That is how DALTON Hydro Alga’s team of algae with its high content of vitamins, calcium and iron becomes an effective protective shield for the skin.
The DALTON Hydro Alga skin care line contains a combination of algae with revitalizing, refreshing, moisturizing and tightening effects for your skin. The duet of Spirulina Algae (blue-green algae) and Fucus Vesiculosus (Brown Algae) has a high content of nutrients, vital substances and chlorophyll with a slightly alkaline effect. Vitamins, trace elements and marine minerals function as antioxidants, offering protection against free radicals. So, the duet of algae fights skin aging caused by oxidative stress and can smooth the skin relief. DALTON Hydro Alga offers optimal care, for the protection and re-mineralization of skin that is continually exposed to environmental pollution (like smog or smoke) or skin that looks tired and haggard due to stress or lack of sleep. Suitable for every skin type and every age, as long-term skin care or short term intervention during challenging and stress full phases in life.
