Magical Skin Benefits of Seaweed
The scientifically proven benefits of Seaweed are truly miraculous and that is why we formulated our products with this natural wonder from the ocean. Seaweed is the embodiment of our holistic vitality and our multi- tasking approach to skincare. The multifaceted properties within marine algae go beyond physical results, with healing capabilities that extend to the mental, spiritual and wellbeing needs of our Mermaids.
Here are just a few reasons why Seaweed can be a transformative for your skin health and self-care routine:
Seaweed has been a potent ingredient for thousands of years.
As a long-standing earth dweller of millions, possibly billions of years, Seaweed has a primitive history of thriving within oceans, rivers, and lakes as part of the marine algae family. Exceptionally diverse, there are over 10,000 species, with three main types: brown (Phaeophyceae), green (Chlorophyta), and red (Rhodophyta).
Ancient usage of Seaweed has extended across food, medicine and land fertilizer. In Japan’s extensive history of seaweed, it has become popularised as a food staple. With Seaweed’s highly potent composition of antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and fibre, can it be a coincidence that the Japanese are globally renowned for their extended life expectancy and low rates of cancer?
Seaweed is the anti-aging gift from our oceans
Seaweed nurtures. Hidden properties are concealed by their watery, other worldly appearance, waiting to be discovered, their radiance enriching powers are unlocked from the water.
When applied to our skin, the anti-aging benefits of Seaweed are in abundance, due to containing powerful antioxidants which help to protect against external damage caused in our everyday exposure to external factors such as UV rays and pollution.
Our mermaids love the multi-tasking capabilities of seaweed; with its gentle powers to exfoliate remove toxins, reduce skin pigmentation, forma protective layer, improve hydration and elasticity for smoother, ﬁrmer skin with a visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
Seaweed provides anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties
Did you know that inflammation is the route of all skin conditions? The anti-inﬂammatory properties of Seaweed soothes irritation while amino acids plump up the condition of the skin.
In ancient Greek and Roman medicinal practices, they recognised the effectiveness of Seaweed for treating wounds, burns, and rashes. We have seen this healing extended to the modern day, with treatment of skin conditions such as Eczema and Psoriasis.
