Seaweed offers many health benefits. One of the ways it can be used is in caring for our skin.
Here are five ways to look after your skin using seaweed.
The Essential Fatty Acids in seaweed actively help to maintain skins natural barrier function, whilst acting as an emollient that protects the skin from water loss. This means the deeper layers of your skin are looked after by the barrier layer, resulting in skin that maintains its natural healthy glow.
The minerals in seaweed such as Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium & Iodine naturally help to reduce redness in sensitive skin conditions, such as Eczema, Psoriasis & Rosacea. This means that skin is supported in its natural healing processes, to help with happier skin.
The Amino acids & antioxidants in seaweed help to promote Collagen production in the skin leaving skin brighter, younger, plumper & fresher looking. Collagen is a fundamental building block of our skin, and is therefore essential to our skin’s natural, healthy glow.
Seaweed helps with hyperpigmentation, brown spots & regulates oil production, balancing & calming the skin. This leads to brighter healthier skin.
Polysaccarides in seaweed, lock in moisture & have shown to have a greater hydrating effect than Hyaluronic Acid, which is amazing!
As you may have guessed, we love all the benefits that including seaweed in skincare can have for our skin! We also love that it has these benefits completely naturally, and that it can be sourced sustainably and non harmfully.
Our products contain not only the wonderful benefits of seaweeds (in particular cold water seaweed), but also the benefits of our other, carefully sourced, natural ingredients.
