History

Once upon a time, women in the South Pole melted chunks of Antarctic ice in the sea and kept the water thus obtained to apply to their faces in the winter because it acted as a cryoprotectant. In 1988, a Spanish researcher discovered that the glycoproteins contained in the bacteria stimulate collagen formation and elastin production, which enables the skin to protect itself under extreme environmental conditions. Thirty years later, research has enabled us to better understand the bacteria and its tremendous powers. Today it is used to stimulate the skin's protective and preventive functions.
