How Seaweed Benefits Your Hair and Skin

Posted by Caitlyn Bruszewski on

The ocean is restorative to your mind, soul, and body. We don’t just mean this figuratively, marine extracts are literally known for their ability to restore and revitalize your hair and skin. With a dose or two of sea greens, you’ll be glowing inside and out.

Regardless of what troubles you’re facing -- acne, lackluster hair, tangles -- seaweed is your best defense. It might be slimy, sludgey, and no, it won’t win a beauty pageant, but seaweed is packed with unusually high concentrations of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants. The ocean has a lot to give, and we’ve managed to almost fit the entire thing in our new product line.

Benefits of Seaweed for Skin

Marine extracts, such as seaweed and sea kelp, have often been seen as the golden standard in the skincare world. And there’s a good reason for that. From cleansing to toning, moisturizing and repairing, these extracts provide every defense against unhealthy skin.

Look at it this way: plants that live in the ocean can survive extreme conditions and often adapt to changing environments, which gives them potent powers for renewing the look of your skin. In the fight against pigmentation, our seaweed-infused body wash is the weapon you want on your side for glowing skin.

This resilience and restorative ability make seaweed and other marine extracts so valuable when talking about skincare. Sea kelp is one of our prime ingredients. The plant can actually regenerate itself at a rate of up to two feet per day. When used, it can bathe the skin in moisture and calm sensitivities.

Don’t be afraid if people start asking you where they too can find the Fountain of Youth.

Benefits of Seaweed for Hair

Your skin drinks in seaweed’s fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, but so does your hair. Think of it as green juice for your hair. Marine extracts can help your hair to rebuild itself and grow twice as strong as before.

Blue Green Algae, or Spirulina, is an extract that will help your hair recover from damage while also soothing scalps. Spirulina is high in Vitamins B1, B2, B3, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, and all of the essential amino acids. Its anti-inflammatory properties help nourish and calm even the most sensitive and irritated skin. A moisturized scalp leads to the growth of much healthier and thicker hair.

With more than 25,000 seaweed species in the ocean, we specifically chose organic Bladderwrack seaweed for its powerful properties. It can be found in our new product line of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash!
