the algae
A treasure for the skin

The first plants to appear on Earth, algae have proven resistance
to temperature variations, sunlight, dehydration, oxidation, pollution
and bacterial attacks. Their ability to survive in extreme conditions
gives them an evolutionary advantage that has enabled them to exist
on Earth for millions of years.

Each species of algae is characterized by a specific combination of bioactive molecules that are essential for the skin to function well. With age, the synthesis of some of these elements slows down, leading to the thinning of the dermis, which gives rise to the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

By providing the skin with bioactive molecules taken from algae
and essential for the skin to function well, it is possible to delay
the appearance of the signs of aging and help protect the skin
from the aging process.

the extraordinary
survival capacity OF
vital algae

For more than fifteen years, the Givenchy Laboratories have
been exploring the world’s oceans to probe the mysteries of their
unexploited natural treasures. These years of work have resulted
in the discovery of a unique type of algae called Vital Algae.

For thousands of years, they have demonstrated their
extraordinary ability to develop and survive in hostile conditions,
proving resistant to very high temperature variations,
extreme osmotic pressure and strong UV radiation.

black sap of vital algae:
AN AGE-DEFYING ELIXIR
A FRENCH TREASURE
It is in Brittany, on the pink granite coast of Île Grande with its
exceptionally pure, rich water, that the researchers in the Givenchy Laboratories
carefully select and cultivate Vital Algae.
cultivated in basins

To maintain the balance of the marine environment and fully preserve
its natural resources, the algae are cultivated in vats containing up to
66,000 liters (17,500 gallons) of silica-rich spring sea water.

Thanks to the controlled conditions (temperature, light and salinity),
the algae multiply in a natural, optimal way.

harvesting
When they have reached their growth threshold, the algae are transferred to
containers, enabling the laboratory to recover them in the form of dark organic
matter weighing up to 5 kg (11lbs).
extraction
The laboratories then begin a six-step extraction process to isolate
just a few milliliters (fractions of a spoonful) of the algae’s oily essence.
It is this Black Sap of Vital Algae that provides the skin with the extraordinary
age-defying power of the algae*.
