An Unexpected Discovery

Proudly scientific, unapologetically bold. Algenist is an award-winning clinical skincare brand and trailblazer from Silicon Valley, the birthplace of biotechnology.

Algenist unlocks the secret of microalgae – with its resilience against the harshest environments – and promises measured and visible skin transformation in 10 days. Patented Alguronic Acid, Algenist’s breakthrough ingredient discovery, outperforms and transcends skincare boundaries.

The Genius of Algae

Well beyond its capacity to produce rich oils for various industry applications, specifically fuel and food, Microalgae secretes a compound that not only allows it to survive, but thrive and regenerate in spite of exposure to the harshest of environments.

Scientists harnessed this compound and exposed it to rigorous scientific testing. They validated this compound's ability to help protect and regenerate the microalgae cell. This compound is Alguronic Acid.


Alguronic Acid

While researching microalgae-based renewable energy solutions, our team of leading scientists uncovered Alguronic Acid, a patented, powerful compound that is responsible for regenerating and protecting the microalgae cell. When scientifically tested, Alguronic Acid demonstrated significant anti-aging properties, helping to rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful appearance.


Our NEW proprietary ingredient, algaprotein is rich in protein, essential amino acids, and anti-oxidants. This key ingredient helps to improve the appearance and feel of skin firmness and elasticity. Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while visibly improving skin’s firmness, elasticity and skin’s overall texture.

Microalgae Oil

Renewable and sustainable, Microalgae Oil is sourced from microalgae and is the second patented-pending ingredient to come from Algenist biotechnology. Its rich composition containing Oleic Acid, Phytosterols, Tocopherols and Tocotrienols, deliver superior benefits to the skin, replenishing essential moisture and nutrient loss. Microalgae Oil is clinically proven to keep skin hydrated 5x longer than untreated skin over a 24-hour period.

#StandFirm Q&A

Our Mission: Unlocking the secret of microalgae for visible skin transformation in 10 days.

Our Story: Proudly Scientific, unapologetically bold. We are skincare trailblazers from Silicon Valley, the birthplace of biotechnology. We unlock the secrets of microalgae – with its resilience against the harshest environments – while harnessing the power of our patented Alguronic Acid to transcend skincare boundaries so remarkably, we make this promise:

Measured and visible transformation in 10 days.

Which three words truly define the brand?

x Transformative

x Dynamic

x Disruptive

What does “disruptive” mean for the brand?

We lead the competition – we push innovations further, design never-before-seen textures and continuously push the boundaries of skin care. It’s no longer enough to design products that consumers expect, but to anticipate the consumers’ needs and present solutions without being prompted. Each of our four hero launches this year were developed with disruption at the forefront – we’re shaking things up and we’re being noticed.

How big of a role will microalgae play within the new brand refresh?

Microalgae, which has given us our patented ingredient of Alguronic Acid, is our staple. Without it, our products couldn’t continue to produce guaranteed 10-day results and our consumers wouldn’t get the results they’ve come to expect from us.

We’re currently conducting a second round of clinical testing on Alguronic Acid – what we’re referring to as Alguronic 2.0 – and the preliminary results are astounding. By the time we relaunch on 5/1, we’ll proudly share these astonishing results, sure to completely disrupt the market.

How is the company changing to accommodate this refresh?

Both the corporate and sales teams are growing exponentially. Just in Q1 alone, our corporate office has grown by 10 and our sales team by 19. We’re prioritizing digital and social marketing while putting a finer focus on market penetration through highly targeted initiatives – something we’ve not done before. We not only want to sell product, but truly create a market of advocates and loyalists.

Our partnerships with SEPHORA, ULTA and QVC are of the utmost importance – truly emphasizing the great pride we feel to be included among the amazing roster of brands available. We’re allocating more media dollars to support in-store and online initiatives, increasing our sampling efforts and working more as a team and less as a vendor; we’re extremely proud of the relationships we’ve established in just six years.

Why are you refreshing the brand now?

Since having been acquired by Tengram, now able to stand on our own, we need to establish our personality and tell our story. The last six years have been nothing short of inspiring and we owe it to ourselves to make sure our beliefs, mission and vision are communicated to our loyalists, prospects and the friendly competition.

Visible Anti-Aging Results

Algenist anti-aging products utilize bioactive ingredients to deliver visible anti-aging results to the skin in just 10 days. Committed to proven results, Algenist products undergo extensive third-party clinical studies and consumer testing for scientifically proven efficacy.
