The History of Beauty from the Ocean
Oceans are so rich in life & diversity from the salt water & the sun, that it is no surprise that seaweed has powerful skin caring properties!
Seaweed which is commonly known as Kelp or Ascophyllum nodosum is part of the Laminariales order and grows in cold water oceans.
Can you believe that the ocean has been used to enhance our skin for more than 7000 years!? The Ancient Mesopotamians used seaweed as a lipstick and a Chinese Empress documented how she used ingredients from seaweed & jellyfish in her skincare routine.
Why is Seaweed so special & why it’s vital to include in your skincare routine!
Well, it has rich sources of proteins, bioactive peptides, enzymes, minerals, polysaccharides, fatty acids, 16 amino acids and 14 vitamins including the rare B12 vitamin which cannot be found in land plants.
More Skin Benefits of Seaweed:
- Antioxidants that fight free radicals
- Antimicrobial properties which helps kill bacteria & fungi
- Anti-inflammatory properties that keep rosacea & inflamed skin under control
- Anti ageing abilities that support collagen production & help smooth out wrinkles
There is no wonder why, when seaweed is applied to the skin, it shows vast improvements by keeping the skin hydrated and prevents oil breakouts.
Rawganic Remedial Derma Mask
This bio-active ingredient is one of the best available for your skin, which is why you will find seaweed in our Rawganic Remedial Derma Mask.
When you combine this with certified organic Tea Tree oil (antibacterial properties) & Gotu Kola extract (stimulates connective tissue growth) it makes the perfect recipe to help clear congested skin and prevent breakouts whilst strengthening and healing the skin barrier. The seaweed in this mask is an organic chelator and a rich stable source of iodine. This healing mask is entirely free from artificial ingredients, additives, flavours, scents & colours.
