Corallines play an important role in the construction, structure and consolidation of coral reefs, where they act rather like a cement. The distinctive stony appearance of Corallina officinalis has earned it the name "plant coral".
Coralline (thallus) used in extract comes from Brittany (France)
Coralline extract has contouring properties and acts in two phases. At night, it inhibits lipogenesis; at day it activates lipolysis.
It also stimulates collagen production and is involved in the good cohesion of epidermal cells and regulates microcirculation.
