The moisturizing, pluping and anti-ageing cosmetic ingredient

Padinami® takes its name from its main ingredient: Padina, a small brown seaweed harvested manually in Malta island in an eco-responsible way to preserve its renewal.
This padina extract is stabilized in jojoba oil which is resistant to oxidation, bringing additional sensoriality to the cosmetic product. Renowned for its moisturizing and repairing properties, this oil has a remarkable affinity with the skin thanks to its properties similar to those of sebum.

The benefits of Padinami® for the skin

Padinami® stimulates the natural synthesis of hyaluronic acid and collagen, essential components of the extracellular matrix for a firm and plumped skin. It optimizes cellular communication for targeted efficiency.
Padinami® also stimulates the synthesis of sulfated glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). Glycosaminoglycans are macromolecules that contribute to the retention of water molecules and to the constitution of a hydrating gel resistant to mechanical stress. By stimulating the natural synthesis of GAGs, the skin regains all its elasticity and resistance, making it firmer and plumped up.
Padinami® allows several applications in face care. It strengthens:

  • Hydratation for a plumped and firmed skin
  • Elasticity and firmness of the skin by stimulating the natural synthesis of collagen

Focus on Padina

A unique calcified brown alga covered with a characteristic protective layer made of calcium carbonate that evokes a peacock’s tail and reminds its name Padina pavonica.
Padina extract has moisturizing, plumping, regenerating and firming properties.
This brown algae extract is particularly recommended in global pro-aging products, but also in care for dry, sensitive and damaged skin thanks to its moisturizing properties.
