The seaweed you may see at the beach is different from the different types of seaweed that we retrieve via deep sea divers from the Brittany Coast of France. Seaweed mimics our own intercellular fluid in vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids and anti-oxidants, making it the ideal ingredient for all skin types. Seaweed is also rich in polysaccharides, enzymes, and bioactive peptides. The bioactive substances derived from seaweed provide a beneficial and functional role at the cellular level, contributing to healthy looking skin, hair and nails. Plus, with seaweed, different types can address different skin concerns. Active ingredients in seaweed can help protect the skin from photo-aging, and have anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, anti-inflammatory, anti-acne, and provide anti-tyrosinase properties. There is a seaweed to help every skin type!
