"A peptide extracted from Chlorella vulgaris, a single-cell green algae, stimulates the production of four types of dermal collagen and elastin. This peptide has been formulated into topical creams to restore youthful function to maturing skin," notes Byrnes. Morvan and Vallee authored a study of a Chlorella vulgaris extract in the November 2007 issue of Personal Care. They concluded that it not only mitigated against the breakdown of collagen and elastin but also stimulated natural cell defenses by increasing the expression of endogenous thioredoxins and protecting against free radicals. Phlorotannins and sulfated poly- saccharides have been touted as the antiaging skincare ingredients of the future. So far, though, all we know is that in vitro studies of phenolic compounds from the marine alga Corallina pilulifera have shown the ability to prevent oxidative stress from UV light, which is known to lead to photoaging. There are currently several labs testing marine-derived phlorotannins and sulfated polysaccharides as antiaging in- gredients (Thomas and Kim, Marine Drugs, January 2013). Pseudopterosins, extracted from Pseudopterogorgia elisabethae, a Carib- bean sea whip, have been studied for their anti-infl ammatory properties (N. Dayan, et al, J Cosmetic Science, December 2009). Forearm skin treated with 0.02% sea whip extract emulsion was then challenged with ethyl nicotinate. The treated arms showed a signifi cant reduction in blood fl ow, a measure of infl ammation, compared to untreated skin. "Pseudopterosins appear to modify the arachidonic acid cascade by an as yet undefi ned mechanism of pharmaco- logical action," says Byrnes. Few, if any, of these compounds have been subjected to strenuous clinical trials, but the basic research that has been done is exciting for many in the dermatologic and skincare arena. "The research is fascinating, but there is still much work to be done," says Dr. Lee. "Companies need to conduct rigorous clinical trials to prove effi cacy." Linda W.
