Discover all the benefits of seaweed for your skin as we help you to find the best UK seaweed skin care products for your beauty regime.

     

    Benefits of seaweed for skin

    Seaweed comes in many varieties and is one of the best natural actives for providing the skin with anti-ageing support, skin nourishment and intense hydration.

    These are just some of the benefits you can gain from incorporating seaweed into your skin care routine:

    1. Antioxidant defence against free radicals
    2. Collagen synthesis support
    3. Prolonged polysaccharide skin hydration
    4. An infusion of Iodine and minerals that benefit skin health
    5. Skin vitality vitamins

    Seaweed is one of our founder’s skin care secrets and when growing up in Denmark, Charlotte’s mother would regularly wrap her skin in seaweed scooped fresh from the shoreline to lock this antioxidant algae’s rich nutrient content into her skin.

    As she grew her own natural skin care brand, Charlotte paired her mother’s skin-nurturing technique with her scientific knowledge of phyto actives and went on a journey of discovery that would lead her to innovative seaweed plant cell technologies and to create our selection of science-backed marine algae skin care.

    To help you know how to use seaweed on your skin, we’ve compiled a guide to our best UK seaweed skin care products.

    Seaweed

    Seaweed moisturiser

    Vita Min Fix is one of our best-selling seaweed moisturisers and Fucus serratus is one of the vitamin-rich plant actives that gives this skin-vitality moisturiser its skin-rebalancing potency.

    For those with sensitive skin that seek the benefits of seaweed without added fragrance, this seaweed is also used on our Scent Free Light Day Moisturiser and our Scent Free Anti-Ageing 24-Hour Cream.

    Another sea plant that we use to make our seaweed moisturisers is Sea Fennel. An edible coastal plant, like seaweed, this marine-sourced active is rich in skin-replenishing benefits. Highly antioxidant and intensely hydrating, extracts from the Sea Fennel plant are capable of counteracting the damage caused by free radicals.

    Using advanced stem cell technology, we incorporated Sea Fennel plant into our Tinted DD Moisturiser which give skin a silky soft radiance and pillowy, youthful plumpness whilst also supporting collagen synthesis and providing resilience against pollution.

    To make its effects last even longer, we blend it with Tara Bush seeds which prolong its release for long-lasting skin-firmness.
