Seaweed is a sea vegetable high in nutrients and has played a major role in the diet of millions of people in coastal areas around the world.

The benefits of eating seaweed is that gram for gram it packs more nutrition than any other vegetable. It has extremely high levels of vitamins A, C and B-12, iodine, calcium, sodium, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, copper and selenium making it one of the healthiest fat free and low calorie natural food on our planet. All these life-giving nutrients are absorbed into the seaweed surface as a result of the wave action generated by ocean currents.

Seaweed skin benefits

The treasure trove of natural minerals and nutrients found in seaweed is highly beneficial for the promotion of healthy skin and is a vital component in many skin care products especially when skilfully blended with organic and essential oils.

There are many different varieties of seaweed, but the range of seaweed products we offer are made from a sustainably hand harvested variety known as Fucus Serratus, a native of the North Atlantic Ocean.

Some of the benefits of seaweed derived from the use of this natural plant can be summarised as follows:

  • The anti-oxidant properties act to stop all the free radicals caused by exposure to the sun and chemicals.

  • Helps to restore the natural hydration of skin cells thus slowing or preventing the signs of ageing and preventing the formation of wrinkles.

  • The anti inflammatory properties combat the toxins and other agents in the blood which cause skin conditions such as psoriasis, acne, blemishes.

  • Provides natural cleansing of skin by opening up the pores thus restoring healthy clear skin.
