Algica work as an efficient SPF booster. First in vitro studies showed that Algica increase the SPF in a formulation with an average of 23%.
In vivo studies shows that Algica can boost the SPF with an average of 13 % togheter with inorganic UV filters and with an average of 10 % with organic UV filters.
Algica's unique porous structure absorbs between 10-20 times more sweat, oil, bacteria and impurities, and provides three times faster absorption of oil and sweat, compared to other synthetic silica ingredients and diatomaceous earth.
The unique pore structure of Algica can also work as a carrier of other active ingredients such as vitamins and nutrients.
Algica has proven capabilities to regulate moisture levels in the skin. A controlled in vivo, randomized, double-blind study conducted by an external actor showed that Algica’s moisturizing properties fully match those of hyaluronic acid.
The same study showed that the feeling of Algica on the skin is smoother. Algica is perceived as easier to apply and is absorbed faster than hyaluronic acid. Algica's sensory modifying properties make the feeling of the product smooth and exclusive.

True organic of Sweden is proud to launch Make my day cream
Day creams rarely stand out as unique, but we have formulated Make my day with the future potential planet friendly sunscreen Algica.

Make my day is a soothing face cream rich in antioxidants and super foods like oat kernel oil, rosehip oil, blueberry seed oil, turmeric, hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E. The revolutionary ingredient is Algica, the shell of an organically grown microalgae.
