WHY SEAWEED?

Did you know that Seawater and blood plasma have an almost identical chemical composition? Seaweed naturally absorbs its nourishment from the sea. As a result, it contains countless minerals, vitamins and beneficial ingredients in high concentrations making it the perfect solution for replenishing the body’s minerals, protecting skin against free radicals, and aids in treating several skin conditions including psoriasis, eczema and acne.

Seaweed naturally cleanses and purifies the skin, helping to improve its suppleness and elasticity, thus improving the signs of ageing by toning, smoothing, moisturising and stimulating skin cells.

 THE BENEFITS

 ANTI-AGING PROPERTIES

Seaweed contains natural anti-ageing properties.

 ANTI-OXIDANT PROTECTION

Seaweed is nature’s most powerful anti-oxidant from the vegetal world. Its abundance of minerals and vitamins are deeply detoxifying, hydrating and nourishing, helping to fight against harmful environmental aggressors and strengthen the immune system.

 IMPACTS THE APPEARANCE OF CELLULITE

Seaweed aids the contouring process by stimulating micro-circulation. Toxins are flushed from the body as the circulation functions in a healthier manner and lymphatic drainage is increased, as a result the appearance of cellulite is reduced.

 IMPROVES SKIN CONDITIONS

Seaweed has been known to be used as an effective treatment for conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis and acne. It contains anti-inflammatory & therapeutic properties that are effective in the treatment of sensitive and allergy prone skin.
