How Can Chlorella Help My Skin?
By Aiko Jin
Chlorella is an amazing little green algae, packed full of vitamins and nutrients. While most people know chlorella as a popular new superfood, they don’t realize that it benefits more than your overall health. Chlorella can also help support your skin!
More and more people are becoming aware of the many benefits of chlorella. As a result, beauty companies are exploring ways that they can add this green gem into their products.
Why is chlorella so amazing for your skin? To understand this, you first need to understand what chlorella is and how it works to bring you benefits.
What Is Chlorella?
Chlorella pyrenoidosa is a single celled, fresh water green algae. It contains a plethora of vitamins, nutrients, and other minerals needed to promote a healthy lifestyle. It also has a lot of other health benefits and does your body a lot of good.
One of the biggest reasons that chlorella brings so many benefits into your life is because of Chlorella Growth Factor, or CGF. CGF is produced during photosynthesis of chlorella, and allows chlorella to multiply four times every 20-24 hours. That’s incredible!
Promotes Healthy Aging
Now that we’ve got a little bit of background on chlorella, we can start to see how it can benefit our skin in incredible ways. One of the biggest things chlorella can do to help your skin is to help support healthy aging. This is because the nucleic acids found in Chlorella Growth Factor help support cellular regeneration.

Again, CGF is the key here. Having increased nucleic acids available in your body may help reduce the amount of recovery time your skin needs when it’s harmed.
Promotes Firmer Skin
Consumer trials on skin creams containing chlorella growth factor (such as Sun Chlorella Skin Creams), have shown skin to appear firmer, while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles after consistent daily use. Together, Sun Chlorella supplements and Sun Chlorella Skin Creams serve as an essential part of a complete regimen for skin and whole body nutrition.
Your skin is the largest organ of your body. Do you give it the care and attention it needs? Another way that chlorella can help you increase the health of your skin is by increasing the levels of antioxidants in your body1. Antioxidants help protect your skin from free radicals which can harm skin cells. They also help reduce wrinkles, tighten and tone skin, and can help reduce inflammation.
There are a lot of beauty products out there that tout to be the fountain of youth. They all boast healthy aging properties and claim to be the solution to all your problems. We can’t vouch for them, but what we can vouch for is the amazing power of chlorella.
As the leading chlorella brand since 1969, we’re here to remind you that we understand chlorella and know the amazing benefits chlorella can bring to your body and to your skin. We use the Chlorella pyrenoidosa strain and have beauty products that can bring the benefits of chlorella directly to your skin. Check out our Sun Chlorella Cream and our Astarella Primetime Cream.
