How did the idea of bringing plankton to cosmetics arise?

All skin-related conditions usually improve in summer. It is true that when we are on vacation decreases stress (which has a lot to do with any type of outbreak), but also that we go lighter clothes and have the areas injured in more direct contact with the environment, sea baths, exposure Controlled in the sun ... all that makes the injuries better.

There are many dermatologists, who in jocular tone, tell us that the best recipe for atopic dermatitis is a weekend in Cadiz, as you know the soil of our laboratory.

And there arose one of those questions that are often left unanswered by impossible. How to be able to collect all the "properties" of the Summer (sun, sea water, oxygen) in a cosmetic? ... is that possible?

And it turns out that the question had an answer!

The solution was in the Natural Park of the vein of La Palma, in the port of Santa Maria. (Cádiz). There is the company Fictoplancton Marino, who have more than 10 years cultivating and investigating the properties and possible applications of these plant microorganisms, both in the field of food (do you know the Chef del Mar?) and the Dermocosmetics.

In that privileged environment they recreate the conditions necessary to cultivate in a natural and sustainable way the marine plankton, and is that the finca vetoes the palm in a privileged enclave for the reproduction of seaweeds.

Marine Plankton contains omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, is rich in vitamins (B12, C and E), rich in minerals and also present other antioxidant compounds. And for its cultivation it is only needed (in special installations) to combine seawater, temperature (sun) and C02 ... it is clear that we gave the ingredient that collected "the properties" of the summer that we spoke at the beginning.

Thanks to the work of marine phytoplankton that in addition to cultivate are able to select the species that interest us for their efficacy in diverse cutaneous pathologies, always under scientific criteria supported by molecular, genomic and clinical studies that That's what they prove.

We already had the ingredient we were looking for so long!

An exclusive, natural, broad-spectrum bioactive. That allows us to offer a therapeutic solution as a complement in the treatment for atopic dermatitis and skins with xerosis thanks to its epitelizante action with anti-inflammatory action. A product that goes beyond hydration. It surprises for its efficacy and its pleasing cosmetic, because it has nothing to do with the dense textures that these patients are accustomed to.

We respond to the question of the post: the idea arose from the curiosity, the research, the collaboration, the illusion to bring new solutions ... and we have achieved it.

Marine Plankton

  • He's got millions of years on our planet.
  • The Ficto marine plankton is the basis of organic life outside and within the oceans.
  • He is responsible for more than 50% of the Earth's oxygen production.
  • It is the main food of marine species.
  • Marine plankton is a natural and vegetal asset. It contains omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, is rich in vitamins (B12, C and E), rich in minerals and in its composition also presents other antioxidant compounds, responsible for neutralizing the free radicals that damage our cells.


The microalgae that constitute the phytoplankton were of the first organisms to inhabit our planet. Beings who were enriching our atmosphere with oxygen and evolving to higher plants as we know today.

They are currently responsible for the production of 50% of the planet's oxygen and are the basis of the food chain in the oceans. They serve as food for zooplankton which subsequently feeds fish and crustaceans.

Phytoplankton is the origin of the trophic chain, i.e. the primary producer of the marine environment. It is what allows the existence of all the seas and oceans of planet Earth and the concentration of oxygen in the atmosphere.
