A Deep-Sea Ingredient That Helps Improve Skin

For most people, a day spent on a sandy beach by the sea is the ultimate in relaxation and rejuvenation. But the benefits of the ocean go far beyond just its mood and wellness-enhancing abilities. For centuries, people have used the nutrient-rich waters of the ocean and the life within for their beauty needs—from exfoliating and softening skin to treating various conditions like inflammation and dryness.

For the founder of The Seaweed Bath Co., the ocean was his answer to a decades-long challenge: severely dry, inflamed and irritated skin caused by psoriasis. Specifically, one ingredient—bladderwrack seaweed—proved to be the miracle that provided the relief he was looking for. Out of more than 25,000 species of seaweed, The Seaweed Bath Co. chose organic Maine bladderwrack for its host of powerful properties. This particular ingredient contains more than 65 vitamins, minerals and amino acids that moisturize, smooth and rejuvenate skin and hair. A high level of iodine helps provide detoxification to the skin and two bioactive compounds naturally found in bladderwrack have been shown to reduce redness and irritation.

This key ingredient forms the backbone of The Seaweed Bath Co. and is infused into all its hair, body and bath products, helping to leave your body smoother and softer.  A special Detox line incorporates additional ingredients like green coffee bean extract and hyaluronic acid for intense hydration and exfoliation that can minimize the appearance of cellulite.

The Seaweed Bath Co. products are not only great for skin, but they’re also sustainable for the environment. The company harvests bladderwrack by hand, cutting it in such a way that allows the seaweed to regenerate and grow back to the same size in less than three years.

As we approach winter, although a beach day may not be in the near future, your skin can still reap the benefits of some of the sea’s most nourishing ingredients.
