Once upon a time, one billion years ago, a little green algae appeared on planet earth. Little did anyone know that these ancestors of plants would become the beauty secret of ancient Greeks and the treasured ingredient for modern day skincare.
Seaweed & Algae
Seaweed, is a type of algae generally found in saltwater, whereas algae can be found both in freshwater and salt water. Either ways, these underwater plants are exposed to varied temperature fluctuations and stress making them resilient to their surroundings. Simply put, they develop properties to protect themselves from the harsh environmental conditions that surround them, so no doubt they can do the same for our skin!
What’s the Hype?
One of the best sources of vegan collagen, seaweed stimulates the production of this natural protein, which smoothens wrinkles, restores moisture, improves skin elasticity and firmness and makes skin look plump and fuller. A rich source of amino acid peptides, it helps boost levels of elastin and keratin in the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
With powerful antioxidant properties, algae neutralizes free radicals and protects skin from damage due to environmental stress and photo-aging including exposure to UV rays and Blue Light. Seaweed promotes cell growth and renewal, hydrates skin while restoring its natural PH levels and protects skin from pre-mature aging, overall strength and luster of the skin.
Rich in amino acids and vitamin A, B and C, algae helps to reduce hyperpigmentation, fade dark spots, even out skin tone, improve skin’s texture and enhance radiance and smoothen complexion. One of the best sources of vitamin C, red algae is a natural glow booster.
Often used in spas, seaweed masks promote relaxation and help soothe skin. The high mineral content in seaweed draw out toxins from the skin, while draining impurities, cleansing pores, balancing oil production and boosting the skin’s natural defense system. Seaweed also has powerful anti-allergic & anti-inflammatory properties that soothe irritated skin, reduce redness, calm inflammation and promote healing in hypersensitive skin.
