Abstract: Abstract: Algae (microalgae and macroalgae) are aquatic photosynthetic organisms largely used due to the variety of bioactive compounds in their composition. Macroalgae have already caught the attention of food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and nutraceutical industries. The application of microalgae in cosmetic products have recently received more attention in the treatment of aging, tanning, prevention of rough texture, skin flaccidity, skin whitening and pigmentation reduction. This has allowed microalgae culture to become one of the modern biotechnologies. The variety of cosmetic formulations using biocompounds or algae extracts as moisturizing or thickening agents or stabilizers have been used increasingly since they also provide the desired safety from environmental resources. Although the cosmetic effect of some of these compounds have been already described in many recent publications and journals, but the majority of biomolecules in algae species have not been yet studied and therefore are not yet used in cosmetics. Besides that, various patents have been registered regarding the beneficial effects of algae extract in many cosmetic products but they don’t explain the type of different algal species that are present in the product. Also the effect of particular biocompound on different cosmetics are not mentioned in the patented products. Thus, the customers are unaware of the real description of actives present in the product. Hence this review article gives an idea of all the biocompounds of algal species that are specifically used in particular cosmetics’ formulations along with their specific activity to the product that gives potential for new researches in near future.
