The Secrets of Seaweed
Algae, aka “Seaweed,” is one of natures greatest gift to skin care. It’s rich antioxidants protects your skin against free radical damage and deprivation of collagen.Seaweed has the ability to soften, hydrate and detoxify your skin while replenishing essential vitamins and minerals. Algae is naturally rich in Alguronic Acid which increases the production of elastin in the skin. Lack of elastin is what gives us wrinkles!
Seaweed Proteins act as collagen building precursors; a key to anti-aging. Seaweed in your skin care actually prevents further breakdown of collagen which naturally leads your skin to produce more collagen.
Seaweed is high in trace elements, including copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc.
Seaweed contains vitamins as well such as; A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B12, C, D, E and K. Since Seaweed lacks a root system it absorbs rich nutrients from the seawater itself. Seaweed is 10 times richer in trace elements than land plants! All skin types can benefit from Seaweed extracts.
Vitamin C Benefits
Topical vitamin C has now been shown to provide up to eight times the skin’s natural protection from UV damage. Vitamin C protects your skin from the sun in ways that sunscreens can’t. Vitamin C can help diminish “age spots” and freckles. How does it work? The Vitamin C penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin where the melanocyte cells are located. These are the cells that produce the protective brown pigment, melanin, which on exposure to U.V. light creates those darkened spots.
