Then Science

Designed to protect and restore facial skin microbiota, Photo Algae Mattify is a moisturising facial serum that instantly mattifies, and regulates sebum with postbiotic marine metabolites.

Utilising the powerful antioxidant properties of lactobacillus and kelp ferment filtrate with an exciting, microbiologically-derived bioactive, seaweed polysaccharides and marine exopolysaccharides work in harmony in Photo Algae Mattify to smooth, mattify and moisturise the skin.

By helping to reduce the release of pro-inflammatory mediator TNFa, which is directly involved in activation of lipogenesis in sebocytes, Photo Algae Mattify controls the production of sebum. A single application of Photo Algae Mattify is sufficient to absorb excess sebum on the surface of the skin. Preventing the build-up of sebum in the pores stops them from dilating.

Apply a few drops of Photo Algae Mattify to face in the morning after the application of creams. We have designed this to work after Algae Plump + B3 and our Eco Marine Cream. It works perfectly as a primer before makeup after all creams have been applied or as the finishing serum to your daily routine.
