Advanced Protection Cream

1.9 oz

If you’re searching for the ultimate in age-defying moisture, look no further. This is the richest formulation of all of OSEA’s facial hydrators! Neutral in aroma, it uses the intelligence of gigartina, a red algae that both hydrates and firms while also protecting from external aggressors like wind, extreme climates, or air pollution.

#SpruceApproved:Family- and female-owned. Sustainably farmed. Highest quality ingredient sourcing from a small, family-owned farm in Patagonia (home to the cleanest water in the world). Food-grade seaweed. Recyclable packaging. Vegan. West-coast based. Cruelty-free.


After cleansing skin and applying toner and preferred serums, layer on APC as your final step in your skincare routine. 

Spruce Tip:Since this cream is very concentrated, it is ultra dynamic and versatile: Used as is, it has a lovely velvety texture that is dense enough to protect from the elements. When mixed with a mist or a toner, it will take on more of a lotion-like consistency. If you add a few drops of your favorite oil to the cream, it’ll leave your skin with an extra dewy glow. 




GIGARTINA SEAWEED: wild and organic, hydrates and fortifies skin’s natural barrier
AVOCADO OIL: firms skin and helps diminish appearance of wrinkles, rich in vitamin E
DPHP: amino acid compound that visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles and provides an overall smoothing effect
JOJOBA SEED OIL: plumps fine lines and wrinkles, rich in vitamin E
