The Hero Ingredient: Polynesican Kopara


A unique collective of organic material produced by underwater microorganisms.


Where we find it

The Moorea atoll (the coral island that encircles the island of Moorea’s lagoon next to Tahiti).


Why we use it

As a form of algae, kopara is lacking a little in the looks department, but it more than makes up for that with its unique benefits.


To protect itself from UV rays, kopara produces exopolysaccharides
as a protective shield. These exopolysaccharides help charge the
skin with essential minerals (potassium, sodium, magnesium and calcium) that work to combat age-accelerating pollutants.


The way we blend it

Cutting edge technologies and key active plant and mineral extracts are the perfect partners for kopara. Tetra-peptides (bonded amino acids) help to firm the skin and nutmeg (in the hand crème) and sugar pea complex (in the neck and décolletage crème) help to further tone and protect.
