It might seem like Karen® Phytoplankton came out of nowhere. The truth is, there are years of research behind us – and years of research still ahead of us. The potential of this microscopic plant is huge and it feels like we are just on the tip of the iceberg.

Karen® Phytoplankton is made with 100% pure phytoplankton of the strain Gaditae™. The growing process of Gaditae™ takes place under highest levels of food safety standards in a state-of-the-art facility in Cadiz, Spain. The strain has been discovered and chosen because of its nutritional profile.

Gaditae™ has over 75 essential nutrients in a naturally occurring form and composition. We are only at the beginning of researching and licensing the benefits with Health Canada to be able to bring those benefits to you.

Gaditae™ was first discovered by Team Canada in 2006. Team Spain had the technology and processes to maximize the nutritional components of what was to become Karen®. The two teams came together and incorporated Blugenics Innovations Inc. in small town Sackville, New Brunswick to spread the message of Karen® for good health and deliver a consistent product using trade secrets and highest food safety standards.

When you think Phytoplankton…think Karen®.

Blugenics is pushing forward to validate Karen®’s potential. These are multiple research projects currently going on:

  • Testing the product against oxygen free radicals and oxidative stress
  • Encouragement of collagen production (the elastic membranes between the skin cells) by Phytoplankton
  • Clinical trial with the psoriasis foundation in Spain
  • Working with the Spanish national soccer team on the reduction of lactic acid build up

Always keep in mind, there are trade secrets and technologies at play to get these results.

One step ahead: Karen® Dermo Cosmetic with micro algae extract.

  • Antioxidant capacity
  • Anti-inflammatory capacity
  • Hydration
  • Angiogenesis
  • Regeneration and cell
  • Collagen promoter
  • Regulator of apoptosis

It was an exciting day when the scientific team in Spain created a unique formula with the natural extract of marine phytoplankton, designed for the most sensitive and intolerant skins. A revolutionary discovery in the hydration of skin was made.

This time 5 phytoplankton strains or varieties were selected to give us one extract. It is a broad spectrum bioactive compound. Combined, this gives us 7 benefits in one natural extract.

The micro algae extract used in Karen® for skin is carefully produced and selected according to scientific criteria and clinical studies, demonstrating their real efficacy in patients with various skin diseases. The natural phytoplankton extract helps restore the skin by reinforcing its natural barrier and increasing its elasticity.

Karen® for skin Moisturizing Lotion significantly reduces the severity and number of outbreaks in psoriatic skin, prone to flaking, seborrheic and atopic dermatitis, rosacea and other processes of flaking. It helps improving xerosis or very dry, rough, and wrinkled skin. It hydrates and moisturizes skin with atopic tendency.
