Why Seaweed

The conversation of skin needs to start with nutrition!

Skin is the largest organ in the body and serves as an indicator of harmony within the systems. When we remove dead skin cells, dirt, and toxins, it gives way to optimal cellular performance, and the systems simply work better!

WHY uSE SEAWEED FOR SKIN HEALTH

All life comes from the ocean. There is a flowing chemistry between the ocean and the human body. Our blood plasma, our embryonic fluid, sweat, and tears are all less than one molecule different from ocean water. 

Seaweeds do not have root systems. Instead, they absorb nutrients directly from water that is almost identical to the fluid in our human bodies. Absorbing and alchemizing essential nutrients directly from ocean water, seaweeds are packed with vitamins, minerals, alginates, and unique bioactive that nourish & revitalize the skin, naturally. 

In fact, these amazing natural ingredients contain levels of essential vitamins and minerals much higher than any land plant or other botanical ingredient. This means one of the main benefits of seaweed is the unparalleled nutrition it offers our skin and bodies.

Healthier Skin

During Seaflora’s Thalassotherapy Treatments, mass osmosis permeates malnourished and dehydrated dermal layers with a wealth of essential minerals and nutrients. This action flushes toxins from the system, stimulates cellular activity, and resets molecular longevity pathways preserving youthful skin for all skin types.

Simply put, our seaweed products will make you look and feel younger and more energized!

Let’s talk about the overlap of the health benefits and skincare benefits of seaweed products and how they promote whole-body health.

The unique benefits of seaweed in your skin care routine are endless. Many of these bioactive compounds are wonderful alternatives to the chemical-based disruptive ingredients commonly used in skincare. By developing unique methods that draw out and retain these special compounds, Seaflora has uncovered the gift of nature.

Anti-Aging Properties

Seaweed skincare products are trending for their amazing anti-aging abilities. Seaweed can help smooth lines, lock moisture in and keep skin hydrated to reduce wrinkles and dryness for an enviably healthy glow and youthful-looking skin.

Because seaweed is packed with vitamins and minerals, it will also boost your skin’s production of hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for plump, hydrated skin and that coveted dewy finish.

Protect Skin and Repair Skin Barrier

The skin barrier is made up of several layers of cells called keratinocytes, which produce a protein called keratin. These cells are held together by lipids, which are fatty molecules that help to create a barrier. It protects you from bacteria, toxins, and other harmful substances that can cause illness or injury. It also prevents moisture loss and regulates body temperature.

Environmental pollution, friction, sun damage, medical conditions, and other common every day occurrences can wreak havoc on our skin’s protective barrier. Seaweed works to repair the skin’s barrier to prevent long term damage.

Detoxifying Benefits Of Seaweed

Seaweed is a fantastic detoxifier! It works to flush out toxins to allow for improved circulation and skin cell regeneration. This cleansing ability even helps allow moisturizers, serums, and other conditioning skin treatments to penetrate more deeply, allowing even better results.

This combination of deeply clarifying skin and improved penetration for skin products will rejuvenate dull skin and give you a youthful, glowing complexion within just one use.

We continuously work to produce exquisite products that detoxify and nourish the body through our largest organ, the skin. Seaweed is especially helpful for modern living because they remove toxins caused by environmental pollution and free up detoxification pathways. This promotes circulation and acts as a catalyst for cellular functions within the body.

Healing Properties

One of the best things about seaweed skin is the healing benefits of seaweed and seaweed bioactives. These miracles in a bottle are beautifully gentle on sensitive skin, while the anti-inflammatory benefits of seaweed make it uniquely effective for difficult and painful skin conditions like eczema, rosacea, and acne-prone skin.

Prevent And Solve Hyperpigmentation

Many people don’t know that seaweed has amazing brightening capabilities. Skin pigmentation is a natural but too much of it can cause hyper-pigmentation (those pesky dark spots).

Seaweed helps to balance melatonin production and reduce hyper-pigmentation for brighter skin and a more even skin tone for smooth, flawless skin.

Natural Antioxidants And Amino Acids

Seaweed, marine algae, and kelp have been used for centuries as a natural source of proteins, amino acids and essential fatty acids. These natural minerals and seaweed polysaccharides when used in a skincare routine will fuel skin repair, fight signs of aging, soothe, calm inflammation, and so much more!

Seaweed VS Fruits & Vegetables

We love natural botanicals for our self-care rituals, and seaweed is at the top of that list. Unfortunately, there are many pressures in our society to look a certain way, and when we struggle with skin concerns, it can have a devastating effect on our confidence and self-worth.

This can not only affect other areas of our lives, but a negative self-image can also put us on a path that accelerates the degenerative process. Because of this, we will begin to feel and look older much more quickly. Too often, we are taught that we need medical-grade, harsh and invasive solutions to preserve our youth. This is far from the truth.

It is entirely possible to achieve healthier skin quickly with proper nutrition and skin fitness programs that utilize the healing power of Seaflora’s Organic Thalasso Skincare products and spa treatments.

Compared to fruits & vegetables seaweeds have

  • The richest mineral source boasting 10 – 100X higher concentrations than any land plant.
  • Higher levels of vitamins A1, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, D, E, K and folic acid. 
  • Offer all essential amino acids offering complete proteins to build collagen.
  • Unique bioactive compounds of laminarin, alginate and fucoidan not present in fruits or vegetables.
