INCI names:

Pongamia glabra seed oil (and) Dunaliella salina/Haematococcus pluvialis extract

SUN’ALG® combines natural bioactive ingredients:

- Pongamia glabra seed oil (Karanga seed oil, deodorised grade) provides a primary shield against UV radiations, acting as a natural sunscreen thanks to its important absorption ability especially for UVB but also for UVA.

- two microalgal extracts bring additional protective capacity against the oxidative stress thanks to their mixed carotenoids composition, these two microalgae having not been chosen by random:

     - Dunaliella salina extract is mainly rich in b-carotene

     - Haematococcus pluvialis extract is chiefly rich in astaxanthin.

Cosmetic benefits

The cooperative combination of the different ingredients brings a superior and efficient protection against damaging effects of sun exposure. It is stable to temperature and UVA-UVB radiation. It offers free scavenger potential.

SUN’ALG® is able to

- strengthen the skin’ defence mechanisms by up regulating various genes involved in the oxidative stress, DNA repair, the antimicrobial defence and the reinforcement of the barrier function,

- reduce inflammatory skin responses which take place in UV-exposed skin, causing premature skin aging by inhibiting the release of IL-8,

- provide reinforced protection against both UVA and UVB radiation,

- prevent the formation of sun burn cells with a high efficacy,

- minimize redness and soothes sunburns (erythema) with a short term efficacy (after 30 - 60 - 120 min) from application.


This finally leads to

- protect against the daily attacks by harmful UV rays and

- maintain skin health and good look by helping to prevent the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
