The variety of cosmetic formulations using bio compounds or algae extracts is increasing since they also provide the desired safe materials from environmental resources. Although the cosmetic effects of some of these compounds were described in recent publications, the majority of biomolecules in algae species have not yet been studied and, therefore, are not used for cosmetic purposed. Besides that, most algae effects in cosmetics are described in patents without considerable explanation about the type of bio compounds or the mechanisms responsible for each cosmetic performance. Thus, this review aimed at a better understanding of the recent uses of algae in cosmetic formulations with potential applications for new research.
