Algenist's Alive Prebiotic Moisturizer with SPF 15 is meant to balance the skin microbiome while protecting it from sun exposure.
The product's namesake prebiotic is derived from algae; it is then joined by a probiotic, zinc oxide and the brand's Alguronic Acid, which is a regenerative microalgae compound. Together, these ingredients are meant to leave skin hydrated, glowing and smooth, with better-managed surface skin bacteria.
Soothing tones of mint green and pink cover the product's packaging; these mimic the color-changing action of another product in the Alive line: a mask that morphs from mint to pink as it is applied.
