Skin Care Spotlight: Algenist Discovers New & Exclusive, Cutting-Edge Ingredient


Leveraging its rich history in biotechnology, Algenist delivers yet another ingredient innovation from Algae - this time, a brand new form of Vitamin C

LOS ANGELES, May 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Algenist – known for 10-day visible results, ingredient-level innovations and high-performance vegan formulas – announces an exclusive, breakthrough skincare ingredient born from the limitless potential of algae: Blue Algae Vitamin C, a never-before-seen 100% pure, renewable form of Vitamin C extracted from Spirulina, a blue-green algae.

"Ingredient-sourcing matters," explains Tammy Yaiser, VP of Product Development. "Starting with a clean, traceable source of Vitamin C ensures a pure compound that provides the dramatic results that we want. We know Vitamin C works as a gold standard ingredient and saw an opportunity to look to algae to give the customer something better from a natural source – it delivered."

While Vitamin C is a well-known ingredient, many of its sources are unknown, synthetic, or not sustainably-produced. Algenist has been able to study and extract Vitamin C from algae to provide dark spot reducing, radiance-boosting and antioxidant benefits. Algenist's Blue Algae Vitamin C is a naturally-sourced and sustainably-produced ingredient-level innovation from Spirulina – 100% pure, safe, vegan and effective. It delivers results that outperform L-Ascorbic Acids from other origins.

On its own, Spirulina acts as a vital source of nutrients with a naturally-rich concentration of Vitamin C in its most active form – L-Ascorbic Acid. Algenist set out to unlock Blue Algae Vitamin C from Spirulina for maximum purity and performance, managing the ingredient throughout the entire supply chain to deliver visible skin tone evening and brightening results.

This exclusive high-purity L-Ascorbic Acid from Spirulina demonstrates powerful results in scientific testing compared to other synthetic or natural forms of Vitamin C as well as well-known discoloration-targeting ingredients. Naturally-sourced Blue Algae Vitamin C also goes beyond the limits of Vitamin C – the source is completely renewable, and is produced by Algenist leveraging the widely-known regenerative powers of algae.

Even more, Blue Algae Vitamin C's efficacy is significantly boosted when paired with Algenist's patented Alguronic Acid from algae, which recently received an 8th patent with claims for advanced brightening properties. The combination of the two ingredients help provide powerful spot diminishing and skin-brightening benefits, boosting hydration, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and fighting environmental assaults that accelerate skin aging.

Extracting 100% Pure Vitamin C From Spirulina, a Genus of Blue-Green Algae

Algenist pushes skincare boundaries by turning to naturally-sourced algae to sustainably produce alternatives to well-known ingredients, without compromising efficacy or taking from the environment. They continue to focus on the untapped, limitless potential of algae, this time with Blue Algae Vitamin C, L-Ascorbic Acid in its most pure and potent form from blue-green algae.

Rooted in biotechnology, Algenist is able to extract their Vitamin C compound directly from Spirulina using a multi-step proprietary isolation and extraction process:

  • The process starts in the cell culture lab from a sample of cultured Spirulina from a premium source
  • Spirulina cells are sustainably grown under optimum conditions in the cell culture lab
  • Spirulina is mechanically ground and milled
  • L-Ascorbic Acid fractions are isolated and extracted from the cells utilizing a proprietary filtration method
  • The filtrate is collected and spray dried creating a highly pure anhydrous L-Ascorbic Acid powder

Tammy Yaiser also explains: "Our Vitamin C is pure, water-soluble L-Ascorbic Acid in its most active form. The ingredient immediately goes to work on the skin, without having to go through several reactions to metabolize into an active form. Other Vitamin C derivatives in the market are known to not be as effective as L-Ascorbic Acid due to their synthetic nature."

Algenist's BLUE ALGAE VITAMIN C kicks off a new, blue ingredient-centric collection targeting the appearance of dark spots, discoloration, and uneven tone and texture. This pure, naturally-occurring L-Ascorbic Acid compound directly from Spirulina will deliver products that show powerful results through scientific testing with Algenist's guaranteed visible results in 10 days, always.

Algenist releases their first formula leveraging proprietary Blue C Technology on Algenist.com June 3 and Sephora.com June 9.

Supplement Spotlight: LivOn Labs Liposomal Vitamin C




Powerful antioxidant for optimal wellness

  • Top-selling liposomal Vitamin C supplement since 2004
  • Scientifically proven to raise Vitamin C plasma levels
    2X previously thought possible 
  • Clinically shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles
    in 4 weeks.


Vitamin C is required to produce collagen, the protein responsible for firm, youthful skin as well as healthy joints and muscles. If you’re only getting the minimum amount of Vitamin C (the RDA), your body won’t have enough for making collagen.*


Vitamin C is required to produce collagen, the protein responsible for firm, youthful skin as well as healthy joints and muscles. If you’re only getting the minimum amount of Vitamin C (the RDA), your body won’t have enough for making collagen.*


Chronic stress and environmental elements produce free radicals that can wreak havoc on our bodies. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C neutralizes these free radicals (also known as reactive oxygen species and oxidative stress) to keep your cells healthy.*




Your body can only absorb as much oral Vitamin C as your limited number of nutrient transporters can carry — from the digestive system to the bloodstream, and then from the bloodstream to the cells.

Vitamin C is water-soluble, so your body can’t store any excess when it gets left behind in either the blood or the digestive system. That’s why so much of the vitamin content from pills, powders, and even foods is passed as waste. And where it gets abandoned dictates the way your body passes it.

Using patented technology, we wrap the Vitamin C in double-layered phospholipid spheres (liposomes) that protect the vitamin through the digestive system and transport it into the bloodstream for absorption in the cells. So, you get all the benefits of high-dose Vitamin C without the gastric distress.



As a dietary supplement, take one packet 1 to 2 times per day or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.

  1. Take on an empty stomach
  2. Tear packet at the notches
  3. Squeeze the entire contents of the liposomal Vitamin C packet into 1–3 oz. of a cool beverage
  4. Swallow in one gulp like a shot
  5. Wait at least 15 minutes before eating
  6. Contents of packet will not dissolve




About LivOn Labs

In 2002, Les Nachman’s doctors told him to get his affairs in order. If he didn’t get the heart transplant, he would die. A serial entrepreneur, giving up was anathema. So he sought another opinion. On the advice of a maverick cardiologist and renowned virologist/epidemiologist, he started lifestyle modifications that included intravenous vitamin C three times per week.

Les calls the results “miraculous.” But the discomfort, costs, and 8-hour drive from his home in Las Vegas suburb Henderson, meant that he had a lot less time to enjoy his new life. With 35 years in the dietary supplement industry, Les was convinced there was an easier, more affordable way to get high doses of Vitamin C without the major gastric distress that comes with traditional oral pills and powders.

Drink Spotlight: Suntory C.C Drink



Suntory Beverage & Food Limited released C.C.Lemon in Vietnam early this July via its subsidiary, Suntory PepsiCo Vietnam Beverage Co., Ltd. Since its 1994 debut in Japan, C.C.Lemon, a carbonated soft drink containing vitamin C, has enjoyed huge popularity among a wide range of customers.

In recent years, Vietnam's soft drink market has been growing at a dramatic rate and is expected to continue soaring. Generating approximately 30% of total soft drink sales, soda products make up of the largest segment of the market excluding mineral water. The soda segment is expected to grow even further as it keeps pace with the rest of the thriving soft drink market.

Aiming to catch this swelling soda wave, Suntory launched C.C.Lemon with an eye to expanding its operations in the growing market, promoting it as healthy soda containing vitamin C with a fizzy sensation that delivers an exhilarating experience.

Energy Spotlight: Honey Stinger Grapefruit Organic Energy Chew



The sweet and sour grapefruit flavor that everyone loves is now available in our Grapefruit chews. These chews are sure to awaken the taste buds. Certified organic, certified gluten free, fortified with 100% RDA vitamin C, this is a delicious snack or energy source! Sweetened with organic honey and tapioca syrup, these chews provide a natural and sustainable source of energy with the multiple carbohydrate sources: glucose, fructose, maltose, sucrose.



About the Company
Located in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Honey Stinger makes nutritious and great tasting honey-based foods including energy bars, protein bars, energy gels, organic waffles, organic chews, kids specific snacks and our very own Organic Wildflower Honey. Fueling more than just the country’s top cyclists, runners, triathletes and teams, Honey Stinger products may be found at specialty sporting goods retailers, natural food grocers and honeystinger.com.



In 1954, Ralph and Luella Gamber developed the EN-R-G Bar (“EN” for energy, “R” for Ralph, and “G” for Gamber). They wanted to provide an alternative to the candy bars available at the time. Their plan was simple: natural ingredients, great taste and (since Ralph was a beekeeper) HONEY. They also introduced two-ounce packets of honey with the words “quick energy” printed on them. Ralph’s friend Roy Phillips, head wrestling coach at F&M College, used these packets to provide quick energy for his athletes. Although Ralph and Luella knew they were on to something, the market was not quite ready for energy foods. In 2002 we re-established EN-R-G Foods, Inc. in Steamboat Springs, CO with the same goal in mind: provide great tasting, honey-based energy foods made with natural ingredients. We think Ralph and Luella would be proud of our products and we know you’ll like them too. Read More
