Our unique technology

HelioBioSys uses a mixed population of carefully selected non-genetically modified marine cyanobacteria that obtain their energy from the sun, and carbon and nitrogen from the atmosphere. These highly efficient and robust bacteria are grown in seawater in outdoor growth systems that stimulates production of our skin care ingredients.

These include mycosporine like amino acids (MAAs), extracellular polysaccharides (EPS), and phycocyanins. These compounds have UV protective, moisturizing, anti-aging, anti-oxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties, all from a single, sustainable source.
