Our largest organ, the skin, protects the body as a stable but flexible shell from harmful environmental influences like moisture, cold and sunrays. Hence, it is constantly exposed to free radicals caused by oxidative stress that attack and weaken our outer protective barrier well into its undermost layers. This results in skin ageing and skin damage. Antioxidants protect and support the skin by neutralising free radicals to delay skin ageing. Astaxanthin is gained from the microalga Haematococcus pluvialis, which BDI-BioLife Science produces in its own cultivation plant. Due to its unique chemical composition, astaxanthin stands out from the group of antioxidants and is truly a diamond. It is the strongest natural antioxidant worldwide and thanks to its hydrophilic and lipophilic properties, it can fully enter the cell and protect it from all environmental influences. Unlike other antioxidants, astaxanthin has no pro-oxidative activity – it cannot become a radical itself.
