Pacifique Sud - News RSS http://www.pacifiquesud.com/ RSS feed from Pacifique Sud News 2020 - Pacifique Sud en Galaxaura Rugosa : A red algae http://www.pacifiquesud.com/uk/328/news/galaxaura-rugosa-a-red-algae.html http://www.pacifiquesud.com/uk/328/news/galaxaura-rugosa-a-red-algae.html Galaxaura rugosa is an algae found mainly in lagoons. It belongs to the Rhodophyte family, or red algae, the most represented family in tropical regions.

 

The calcareous red algae are the most luxuriant on the reef front and in particular on the atolls where they form a wine-colored corbel called ridge of algae, offering amagnificent spectacle.

We find them at the beginning of the external slope of the external reef and of the of the constructions of the lagoons. Often mixed up with the corals, they have a smooth surface and this is why they were called Nullipores. The limescale settles around each cell and make a homogenous, dense and resistant together.

They grow horizontally covering more and more substrate and vertically increasing their thickness. This way each foot enters in competition with other organisms, Madrepores, other algae, etc… and its internal part mortifies. This last event is clearly visible at the break which shows that only the superficial part is pink and therefore alive. Their maximum development is located between the line of low tide and few meters under the external slope. If the sea is really strong, they will rise higher as the rolling will moisten them endlessly, and go lower as the water there will still be rough.

 

OUR INGREDIENTS

  • Galaxaura Extract - This algae extract results from the active soaking of Galaxaura rugosa in a specificsolvent. This marine extract offers all the richness of algae in trace elements and soluble fibers.

  • AlgoMonoï Galaxaura - AlgoMonoi Galaxaura is a marine extract from the polynesian tradition which combines the properties of Monoi de Tahiti with the richness of Galaxaura Rugosa algae in trace elements and fatty acids. It perfectly fits modern cosmetics.

Nouveauté dans notre catalogue http://www.pacifiquesud.com/uk/326/news/nouveaute-dans-notre-catalogue.html http://www.pacifiquesud.com/uk/326/news/nouveaute-dans-notre-catalogue.html

La Dunaliella salina est un type de micro-algues vertes halophiles que l’on trouve surtout dans les champs de sel marin.

Reconnue pour son activité antioxydante en raison de sa capacité à créer de grandes quantités de caroténoïdes, elle est utilisée dans les cosmétiques et les compléments alimentaires. Peu d’organismes peuvent survivre comme D. salina dans des conditions aussi salines que les bassins d’évaporation du sel. Pour survivre, ces organismes ont des concentrations élevées de b-carotène pour se protéger contre la lumière intense, et des concentrations élevées de glycérol pour se protéger contre la pression osmotique.

HISTORIQUE

C’est sous l’Empire romain que l’historien écrivain « Pline l’Ancien « mentionne pour la première fois Dunaliella Salina dans ses textes. Il a ensuite décrit une fleur de sel de couleur rouille « Flo Salis », une couleur qui viendrait de l’algue.

Dunaliella Salina a ensuite été étudiée en 1838 par le botaniste français Michel Felix Dunal, qui lui a donné le nom d’Haematococcus salinus et a mis fin à la croyance que la couleur rose/orange des marais salés était produite par la crevette.

Puis, ce n’est qu’en 1905 qu’il fut étudié et nommé par le Teodoresco roumain qui publia un document décrivant cette algue inhabituelle. Depuis lors, la Dunaliella a fait l’objet de nombreuses recherches visant à comprendre sa haute tolérance au sel. On comprend peu à peu que l’algue s’est pigmentée, ce qui l’aide à se protéger de la forte exposition à la lumière qu’elle subit dans les eaux très peu profondes des marais salés. Ces pigments lui permettraient de se protéger de la photo-oxydation due aux rayons UV.

Le chloroplaste contient de grandes quantités de b-carotène, ce qui lui donne un aspect rouge orangé dans les lacs salés.

 

NOS INGRÉDIENTS

  • L'extrait de Dunaliella - résulte de la macération active de l’algue Dunaliella Salina dans un solvant spécifique. Cet extrait marin permet de recueillir toute la richesse en oligoéléments et en fibres solubles de l’algue.

  • AlgoMonoï à base de Dunaliella - un extrait marin issu de la tradition polynésienne qui combine les propriétés du Monoï de Tahiti à la richesse en oligo-éléments et acides gras de l’algue Dunaliella Salina. Il répond parfaitement aux tendances de la cosmétique moderne.

  • L'huile de Dunaliella -  Cette huile aromatique, tonique et aphrodisiaque, peut être largement utilisée dans toutes sortes de produits cosmétiques.

New in our catalog http://www.pacifiquesud.com/uk/327/news/new-in-our-catalog.html http://www.pacifiquesud.com/uk/327/news/new-in-our-catalog.html Dunaliella salina is a type of halophile green micro-algae especially found in sea salt fields.

Known for its antioxidant activity because of its ability to create large amount of carotenoids, it is used in cosmetics and dietary supplements. Few organisms can survive like D. salina does in such highly saline conditions as salt evaporation ponds. To survive, these organisms have high concentrations of b-carotene to protect against the intense light, and high concentrations of glycerol to provide protection against osmotic pressure.

 

 

HISTORY

It was during the Roman Empire that the historian writer « Pliny the Elder » first mentioned Dunaliella Salina in his texts. He then described a rust coloured «Flo Salis» flower of salt, a colour that would come from the seaweed.

Dunaliella Salina was then studied in 1838 by the French botanist Michel Felix Dunal, who gave it the name Haematococcus salinus and put an end to the belief that the pink/orange colour of salt marshes was produced by shrimp.

Then, it was not until 1905 that it was studied and named by the Romanian Teodoresco who published a document describing this unusual algae. Since then, the Dunaliella has been the subject of much research aimed at understanding its high salt tolerance. It is gradually understood that the algae has become pigmented, helping it to protect itself from the high light exposure it experiences in the very shallow waters of salt marshes. These pigments would allow it to protect itself from photo-oxidation, due to UV rays.

The chloroplast can hold large amounts of b-carotene, which makes it appear orange-red in salty lakes.
