Active ingredient


This active forms a moisturizing protective film on the skin. Its high moisturizing action confers a pleasant and fresh feeling to the skin.

What are its origins?

Carrageenans are derived from a species of red seaweed scientifically known as chondrus crispus. It is often used in food and beauty products for its thickening and emulsifying properties - however this humble ingredient is also an impressive moisturizer.


Active ingredient - Red seaweed


Thanks to its soft and jelly-like texture, carrageenans give the skin a fresh and smooth feeling by forming a protective moisturizing layer that provides instant hydrating relief with lasting effects. It has been clinically proven to significantly improve hydration over a 24-hour period after a twice-daily application, with even better results showing after 20 days of use. 

Carageenans are made using a biotechnological process that guarantees 97.5% natural content, a vegan ingredient that has proven to be completely non-irritating, non-sensitizing and safe to use on all skin types.

how dermaceutic is commited to first class ingredients?

Dermaceutic has carefully sourced the best quality carrageenans from a partner who use microfluidization technology – a process that ensures a more consistent and superior form of the raw ingredient. The result is a more homogeneous and thinner monolayer having a greater contact area with the skin. This forms a protective film and induces better organization between the molecules within the active’s overall structure. 

This sumptuous and hydrating product complements other ingredients and formulations perfectly. It is a crucial part of our K Ceutic post-treatment cream that helps to restore fragilized skin.
