Algaktiv® Zen helps to protect the skin and restore balance. It visibly reduces scaliness and the appearance of wrinkles on the skin.


It is a translucent, brownish, oily liquid with a slight odour that is easily covered in a finished product. The specific microalgae (plankton) are cultured in closed containers with purified water to ensure the purity of the product. Although these microalgae can be harvested in the wild, they would be prone to marine pollution. The finished product is GMO free and preservative free.The Sunflower Seed Oil is to keep the microalgae fluid and pourable and the Vitamin E is added as an antioxidant to protect the product from oxidation.
  • Use at 1%.
  • Oil soluble, so cannot be used in water only products. It can be used in water based gels where it will be held in suspension.
  • It is damaged by heat, so add in Stage 3 (below 40 °C) when making creams and lotions.
  • Store below 25 °C but not in the ‘fridge door. Do not freeze and do not shake.
Cosmetic Functions:
The individual materials that make up Algaktiv® Zen are listed on the Cosmetic Ingredient Database (Cosing) here



Skin Care
  • Algaktiv® Zen significantly reduces wrinkle depth. Studies showed this was up to 15% in just 15 days. Excellent to add to night creams and eye serums.
  • Scaly, dry and flaky skin improves, becoming more supple with the use of Algaktiv® Zen. Studies showed a 13% improvement, but this can be added to by using nourishing oils such as Avocado Oil and Evening Primrose Oil. This can be very beneficial in creams and gels for use in rough skin areas such as knees and elbows.
  • Skin radiance increased by 10% in trials, making this ideal for use in daily defense creams and facial serums. It blends well with lighter oils such as Rice Bran Oil and White Poppy Seed Oil.
  • In the manufacturer’s trials, 90% of the volunteers tested reported a reduction in nervous hand sweat. This benefit can be used in deodorants and hand creams.
  • It is non-irritating and non-sensitising so is therefore ideal for use in products for sensitive skin.
  • Fragile, thin skin can be improved by blending with Prickly Pear Seed Oil. As well as making the skin more resilient, it will reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Hair Care
  • In hair care products it is suitable for use in those with problem skin. Combine with Pomegranate Seed, Sacha Inchi, Brazil Nut, Oat and Meadowfoam oils for a soothing scalp oil.
  • Can be combined with Bio Energiser in a light, leave on hair conditioner.

Worth trying

Easy to use but I need to use it a bit longer to decide if I like it or not on my skin. Plus is that it has been grown in clean controled condition

Love using Algae as part of my skin care routine. It is the first time using the one branded by Aromantic and so far, so good. I like the consistency of it and how it blends with other oils. I just rated a 3 as I'm still to review whether or not it works on wrinkles. Some time might be needed for that.

Haven’t seen a difference in wrinkle depth & very expensive for 5ml

Tried for 2 months but I can’t see any visible difference. Very expensive for just 5ml! At this price, it should have make visible difference. Perhaps will order to try for one more month & if there no visible difference even after 3 months of use, won’t be buying again.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. Wrinkles can be caused by a number of factors that may have long lasting effects on the skin. Sometimes these factors are not so easy to address with the use of a topical ingredient. This does not mean that the product does not work at all, rather it means that the product does not work for your skin at this time. Our bodies natural circadian rhythm may be disrupted by external and internal stressors which can cause an increase in the production of cortisol which in turn affects the appearance of our skin causing wrinkles to appear deeper. While products such as Algaktiv Zen work on the surface of the skin, if the causes of the disruption to the circadian rhythm are not addressed the internal stressors will continue to create such problems as thinner skin and wrinkles thus making it more difficult for an externally applied product to do its job effectively. In vivo tests carried out by the manufacturer found that Algaktiv Zen did indeed reduce the depth of wrinkles but it is important to remember that this was monitored by high tech lab equipment that regular users simply don't have access to. Unfortunately, in your circumstances the Algaktiv Zen has not worked as you would like it to. Perhaps a different active ingredient such as Remodelling Intense or Eco Marine Algae Extract would be more beneficial to you.
