Divina Natural is formulated with 100% therapeutic grade essential oils from all over the world and botanical extractions in the complete line including the anti-aging products. Below is a summary of marine algae extracts in Divina. Padina Pavonica and Fucoidan extracts are the active ingredients in the Lifting Serum and Ultimate Eye Lift. Also, Fucoidan is the active ingredient in newly released Dark Spots and Skin Lightening Lotion.
(Padina Pavonica is the active ingredient in Ultimate Lifting Serum and Ultimate Eye and Lip Lift ) Padina Pavonica, in particular – a fan shaped brown algae, is hand picked daily by scuba divers from the temperate waters of Malta and is a clinically proven collagen boosting seaweed. The purified extract of this intelligent algae, not only helps the skin’s metabolism, but it stimulates the synthesis of Glycosaminoglucan molecules (GAGs) at the cellular level. These hydrophilic (water attracting) molecules are responsible for the moisturizing, and thus for the firmness and elasticity, of your skin. Your skin cells produce GAGs every day; however, aging slows down and decreases cellular regeneration, thereby speeding up the aging process. The discovery of Padina Pavonica has changed the face of skincare forever. Independent clinical trials proved that it helps reduce wrinkles by up to 19% in just 15 days. Divina Natural, Dynamic anti- aging skin care products have been developed with the very latest scientific research and include the unique, groundbreaking natural ingredient Padina Pavonica, will increase skin elasticity, suppleness, firmness and hydration levels whilst offering additional support. The brown fan shaped marine algae, Padina Pavonica, is a clinically proven collagen boosting seaweed extract, which means it will activate the production of new collagen within your skin cells and anti aging skin care products containing this algae will boost your body’s own collagen levels naturally so you can have younger, firmer looking skin. Padina pavonica provides calcium to the cells. As time passes, skin tissue loses moisture and elasticity as its stores of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) diminish. Extensive research has shown that Padina pavonica – a brown algae of the Dictyoataceae family – has properties similar to those of young human skin. It promotes the renewal of GAGs, thereby boosting their protective action (anti-oxidant and anti-irritant) as well as helping maintain cell vitality (for firmness and suppleness).
FUCOIDAN UNDARIA PINNATIFIDA
Fucoidan is the active ingredient in Divina Natural Ultimate Lifting Serum and the Ultimate Eye Lift. Undaria Pinnatifida has a low molecular weight extract containing 85% fucoidan (min) and enriched with calcium and potassium. Extracted from organic Undaria pinnatifida, has been developed specifically for anti-ageing skin care applications. The product has been shown to inhibit the glycation, elastase and hyaluronidase processes, all of which are closely associated with skin ageing. There is a growing body of evidence for fucoidan as a cosmetic ingredient, primarily as an inhibitor of skin damage due to aging. Fucoidans can increase dermal fibroblast numbers, stimulate contraction of collagen gels, increase skin thickness and elasticity. Combined with the anti-inflammatory activity of fucoidan, this evidence supports the use of fucoidans as a skin protection, skin conditioning and anti-aging ingredient. It has the presence of fucoxanthin, which contains Carotenoids that are precursors to vitamin A, one of the most powerful antioxidants that protects the body from free-radical damage. It also has anti-tumor activity through enhancing the immune response. The organic certified marine-derived skin care ingredients has been specifically modified to enhance skin penetration and has anti-inflammatory activity. Its INCI function says it is a skin-protection ingredient.

It has an effective, natural alternative to the existing ingredients used to lighten skin tone, many of which increase skin sensitivity and dermal damage. In vitro analysis has already shown that this Fucoidan has a powerful efficacy in inhibiting tyrosinase – an enzyme responsible for producing melanin which, in turn, causes skin darkening and patchiness. Many of Divina’s clients have experienced anti-inflammatory benefits of this Fucoidan blend formulation for stings, inflammation on the face and breakouts.
