The algae-based silica material with unique and powerful properties developed by nature.
- Cleanses the skin by absorption of impurities, sweat and bacteria
- Efficient carrier material that enables efficient uptake of vitamins and nutrients by the skin
- Improved moisture retention by its ability to bind water, similar to hyaluronic acid
- A future natural, non-toxic and environmentally friendly UV filter
- COSMOS Certified Organic
- Transparent on the skin
- Completely odor-free
- The dry form is long-lasting and does not require preservatives
- Rheology modifying properties
- The material also shows promise for anti-pollution (currently testing)
- It is available as a dry powder and as a water-based cream. The dry material is preferable for oil-based formulations and serums, while the cream is easy to formulate into lotions and face masks
These properties have been tested in scientific studies and by our customers.
More on the properties and origin of the material
The algae’s unique porous shell has evolved for millions of years to ensure survival. The shell is naturally designed for uptake and release of chemical substances such as nutrients, vitamins and minerals. The abundance of hydroxyl groups, comparable to hyaluronic acid, also helps the algae to efficiently regulate moisture and water levels.
Algica solves the two major skin care issues: moisturizing and cleansing. These shell’s natural traits can be utilized in moisturizing creams to boost the delivery of active ingredients such as vitamins and minerals to the skin. The remarkable absorptive properties are valuable in cleansing face masks, for efficient uptake of sweat, bacteria and other impurities from the skin.
Additionally, the material efficiently blocks harmful UV light. This has been confirmed in scientific studies by our team and other scientists, including a publication in the elite journal Nature. We are conducting tests to approve this algae material by the EU as an environmentally friendly UV-filter for use in sunscreen.
Diatom shells originate from the sea and are thereby completely safe for oceans and sea life. It is of great importance today to protect our fragile oceans from harmful and unnatural chemical substances that endanger life in the oceans.
Love it when the beauty editors also love our products. This is what beauty editor, the lovely 💚@susannebarnekow from @plazakvinna magazine has to say about our Body buddy lotion:
“Aloe vera, oat kernel oil, squalane, vitamin E and lactic acid are some of the fantastic main ingredients in True Organic’s new Body buddy. The cream is light but long lasting and has a wonderful refreshing scent of citrus. An essential and natural product to enjoy this winter.”
As my products are like my babies, it really warms my heart, hearing that other people like them too. From the idea to ingredient sourcing to finished product takes a long time and you get attached to your “kids” hoping that the world will receive them well 😉 so thank you 😊

Dry skin? Get beautiful skin from within. As the weather is getting colder, many of us are experiencing dryer skin. Taking omega 3 oil internally as a supplement may be as good as or better than applying conventional moisturisers.
The long list of Omega 3 skin benefits make it a real skin hero, it helps skin maintain a smooth, elastic texture.It contains essential fatty acids the body can’t make for itself. These are incorporated into cell membranes in the the top layer of skin, forming a protective web around them, helping to stop moisture being lost, and giving skin a healthy appearance. But Omega 3 oils also work deeper in the dermis to control inflammation. Most people see noted improvement in skin health by supplementing with the equivalent of just one to two tablespoon of Omega-3 each day. Oily fish is one of the best sources of omega-3 essential fats, which act as a natural moisturiser and illuminator for your skin from within. If you have a lack of omega-3 in your diet it can lead to premature wrinkles and dry skin.
When choosing a fish oil, make sure you’re paying attention to the milligrams of EPA and DHA – the actual omega-3 content which is what replenishes dry skin. For a plant-based option, the omegas are listed as ALA, and can be found from oils such as black currant seeds or sunflower seeds.
Pictured is our delicious super hydrating Body buddy lotion with oat kernel oil. A perfect complement to omegas. When you apply Body buddy lotion in the morning, your skin is still soft in the evening.

Chia oil, when extracted, contains essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6, as well as antioxidants called tocopherols, explains dermatologist Dr. Julie Russak. In fact, it has highest levels of antioxidants in the oil family—beating out other popular oils like flax. (Rad.)
But what does it do exactly? Here’s the scoop on how chia oil can boost your beauty routine and why it’s worth trying out.
It’s super hydrating.
In a study published by The Annals of Dermatology, chia oil was clinically proven to “significantly increase skin hydration, reduce trans-epidermal water loss and increase skin barrier function,” says Susanne Norwitz, founder of Maya Chia Beauty, which makes chia oil and other chia-infused products.
Adam Friedman, MD, Director of Dermatologic Research at Montefiore-Einstein College of Medicine, adds that chia oil is also high in fiber, which means it can, “pull water from deeper tissues or even the skin surface, creating a hydrating effect.”

It strengthens your skin.
As we age, Russak explains, the barrier of the skin’s outer layer (the epidermis) becomes compromised due to thinning, weakening cells, making it harder for skin to repair itself. Topical omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which chia oil has plenty of, actually help strengthen the epidermis. “The beauty of directly applying chia oil directly to the skin is you are delivering these potent, raw nutrients directly to the source of concern, enforcing the cell membrane and improving the texture and quality of the skin,” she says.
It may have anti-aging properties.
Not only can chia oil potentially help skin stay strong over the years, it may also have additional anti-aging benefits. Skincare expert Indie Lee, founder of Indie Lee Skincare, says that chia oil’s high levels of omega-3s help build collagen—a key for supporting skin structure and maintaining youthful-looking skin.
Dermatologist Dr. Rachel Nazarian of Schweiger Dermatology Group also says there’s evidence that chia oil can decrease the formation of skin darkening (think dark age spots), another key way this oil keeps your face looking fly.
Omega-3 is not only an anti-aging property, it’s anti-inflammatory, too, making chia oil a great remedy for irritated and inflamed skin, Nazarian says. She adds that it’s even shown success in decreasing chronic and severe itchy skin.
Joshua Zeichner, director of Cosmetic and Clinical Research in Dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, adds that these anti-inflammatory molecules not only soothe inflamed skin, they can even reduce UV damage, to boot.
It has a long shelf life.
You can get more bang for your buck with chia oil: While other oils might go rancid after six months, chia typically lasts far longer. (Norwitz notes that her products have a shelf life of two years even though they don’t contain additives.)

It’s less greasy than other oils.
Norwitz says that chia is on the lighter side, as far as oils go. “While other oils may feel greasy and take a while to absorb, chia is ultra light and rapidly absorbs into the skin.” So, if you’re tired argan oil and find it too thick—or you’re still not so sure about putting oil on your oily skin—give chia a spin.
Chia seed oil is the main ingredient in Face it, serum
