BiotechMarine, a French laboratory specialized in research and marketing of seaweed and plant bioactive natural substances, has introduced an anti-ageing ingredient made of phytoplankton and arginine ferrulate.

The new active, named BioFA, aims to reduce skin ageing by acting on the global functioning of the cell: intracellular communication, energy, detoxification and replication. However, the specificity of BioFa is that it has been designed to be combined with other specific active ingredients such as Alariane and Kalpariane “in order to provide the best solution to skin and skin ageing requirements,” the company said in release.
