Plant Based Ingredients that Improve Nails & Cuticles
By Suzanne Roberta-Meyer, MBA
The restorative, healing power of plants and nature is the everyday inspiration we draw on to create products that deliver instant and long-lasting results for nails and cuticles.
In today's blog, we’re talking about the healing power of Blue Marine Algae, the strengthening power of bio-mineralization and the barrier building capabilities of Keratin Protein.
In the ingredient spotlight is one of our favorites, Blue Marine Algae.
Blue Marine Algae has many health benefits, both topically and internally. Often called spirulina, this amazing compound works wonders. Blue Algae is an organism that grows in both fresh and saltwater. It was consumed by the Aztecs but became popular again when NASA proposed that it could be grown in space. Free radicals like sun exposure, pollution, and other exposure from day-to-day elements cause major damage to your health, skin and nails.
However, we found that these free radicals can be eliminated by increasing your skin’s metabolism, which is exactly what Blue Algae does. This organism helps your body produce new, healthy cells faster wherever it is applied topically. We took this knowledge and used Blue Algae to create the first ever new nail repair technology that uses blue algae to facilitate nail growth.
Marine Algae Hydration Serum
When it comes to nail repair technology, our Marine Algae Hydration Serum encapsulates all the amazing benefits of Blue Algae, and transforms it into a nail repair treatment.
Your nails are porous and absorb the good and the bad, very similarly to your skin. This is an intensive moisturizing complex containing ingredients like Rich Ocean Derived Emollients, Algae Serum, Sodium Hyaluronate and Hyaluronic Acid. These help to hydrate and nourish dry, cracking nails and cuticles. They help to sooth and deliver a healthy, more youthful appearance to the nails.
Bio-mineralization is a process that happens when organisms produce minerals that harden around soft tissue. This is the case for all the seashells you see at the beach. We took this technology and curated it into a nail treatment. Nail repair technology now mimics what nature has been doing for centuries. Now when you use our Nail Defense Serum you get the same technology behind seashells to harden and strengthen your nails.
Keratin Protein Peptides
Keratin is the protein that makes up your skin, hair and nails. It is the key ingredient in our W3 Peptide Serum, combined with bio-minerals to create a strong barrier against environmental damage for your nails. When used regularly, this treatment will help improve the overall health and wellness of your nails, and will reverse the signs of aging, reducing weakness, brittleness, peeling, thinning, cracking, and splitting.
