Cosme-Phytami™ Spirulina

Add to favourites
Spirulina is a blue-green algae, one of the earliest forms of life on earth. Originating from the depths of the ocean, it dates back some 3.8 billion years. Its genus name Spirulina refers to its spiral shape. There is documentary evidence of Mexican spirulina from the time of the Spanish conquest. The Aztecs harvested spirulina on the surface of Lake Texcoco using fine-mesh netting, then dried it in the sun before cooking it. It was mixed with sweetcorn to make a dish known as Tecuitlatl. Spirulina is now consumed all over the world and cultivated in ponds. Well-known for its nutritive benefits, spirulina is mainly used in food supplements and vegan diet (due to its richness in proteins). For pharmaceutical uses, the algae thus appear to act as an immunostimulant and anti-inflammatory agent. With moisturising, nourishing, remineralising restructuring and antioxidant properties, spirulina is highly recommended for anti-ageing products Spirulina can also be used in creams for dry, damaged and stressed skin, hands eye contour and for after sun care. Spirulina is also ideal for shampoo for dry, damaged and lifeless hair.
