Laminaria Ochroleuca (Golden Seaweed) Extract
At Aubrey®, we have always been committed to finding natural solutions to any personal care
Aubrey® was the first to ever use Laminaria Ochroleuca, also known as "golden seaweed,"
in skin care products. Golden seaweed naturally defends the skin from daily stressors.
Found along the coasts of Ireland and Great Britain, it holds onto
rocks in tidal areas, and is most notable for its beautiful yellow-gold fronds. Because it is found
in shallow water, it is often exposed to harsh sunlight, and has developed its own protective
mechanism to combat the effects of UVA and UVB rays. Rich in nutrients, this extract helps
smooth and hydrate the skin. Aubrey® uses golden seaweed extract in our Age-Defying
Moisturizer and SPF 15 Defense Moisturizer, because of its clinically proven effectiveness. In a
study performed independently of Aubrey Organics, Inc., 20 individuals tested Laminaria
Ochroleuca extract in a test cream for 56 days to measure its anti-wrinkle properties. At the
end of the study, 80% of the volunteers saw significant reduction in the appearance of wrinkle
depth (see study below).
Laminaria Ochroleuca in Vivo Study
(Studied on Real Human Volunteers)
20 volunteers from age 35 to 55 applied a 2% concentration of Laminaria Ochroleuca extract
in a test cream once a day for 56 days. After 56 days, their skin was evaluated in comparison
to the first day of the study. These were the results:
- 80% of the volunteers had significant
reduction in the appearance of
- The Laminaria Ochroleuca extract
also had significant effects on the
hydration, firmness, and smoothness
of the skin
When purchasing any personal care product, it is very important to know the ingredients and to
be informed about their safety and effectiveness. Delicate facial skin, in particular, may be very
susceptible to the dryness and irritation that can be caused by harsh petrochemicals. Our Age
Defying and SPF 15 Defense Moisturizer both contain naturally defensive elements that hydrate
the skin and protect against the elements of nature, and both moisturizers contain only natural
ingredients. Aubrey® uses only natural fragrances in our products, making them perfect for
those with fragrance allergies or sensitivities.
