“That is because the algae with special properties that grows there. “

Hutt Lagoon’s iconic colouring comes from the presence of the caroteinoid-producing algae, which is a source of beta-carotene; a food-colouring agent and a great source of Vitamin A.

Dunaliella salina is commonly used in cosmetics and dietary supplements.
