You may be familiar with seaweed from eating sushi with friends or seeing it wash up on the shore when you are at the beach, but seaweed is one powerful ingredient. We bet you didn’t know that Russian scientists used brown seaweed to treat victims of the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe. The healing qualities of seaweed had been known for several centuries and as such, the USSR government instructed scientists to find an effective and powerful natural solution for the radiation poisoning of those affected. This is just one example of seaweed as a powerful botanical from the sea. Luckily for us, it is also a super ingredient when it comes to skin & beauty!
The first main reason why we love seaweed is for it’s rich blend of 12 vitamins, 18 amino acids and 42 trace elements and minerals. Seaweed is a high concentration of seawater and absorbs these substances from the water. With this being a factor, and having chemists on our team who can extract seaweed in a way that these vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and amino acids are alive and active, your skin can reap the nourishing benefits of seaweed.
The second reason why we love seaweed is because different types of seaweed can address different skin concerns! For example, the seaweed you may see at the beach is different from the different types of seaweed that we retrieve from the Brittany Coast of France. As a matter of fact, there are over 20,000 different species of seaweed worldwide! Whether you have dry, oily or sensitive skin, or are showing signs of aging, there is a seaweed to help! So which kinds do we use and how can they benefit your skin?
