The seaweed plays the biggest role in getting all these healthy ingredients working together. Seaweed is bio-available which means that the beneficial nutrients in seaweed are easily and readily absorbed by our bodies. Drug companies have been using the bioavailability of seaweed (in particular alginate) to help administer topical drugs like insulin, nicotine patches and others.
Seaweed has been proven to tighten loose skin, minimize the appearance of pores, has the highest concentration of anti-oxidants than any other plant and improves collagen production by 200% in aging skin. It also can moisturize and calm the skin. Seaweed sinks into your skin deeper, because of its bioavailability, where it really can make a difference with healing. Add seaweed to other healthy ingredients and it will pull them into your skin as well -which is why we included a couple of ingredients below:
COFFEE SEED: Toning, soothing and stimulating. Used for centuries for reducing heat and inflammation of the skin.
OATS: Relieves and calms, itching and irritated skin. Balances pH and has anti-inflammatory and anti-histamic properties. High content of proteins, lipids, iron, calcium and vitamin B1- making it soothing and moisturizing to the skin.
VANILLA: It’s main aromatic compound, vanillin, is an antioxidant that brightens, softens and restores the skin. The sugars in vanilla act as a humectant, which forms a barrier on the skin to prevent moisture loss. Also has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties.
SHEA BUTTER: Effective in reducing inflammation and redness. Shea butter contains important nutrients such as vitamins A and E and other valuable phytonutrients vital to the skin’s healing process. In fact, many people report that using shea butter after surgeries helps with quick healing of incisions – more so than any other method.
SAFFLOWER OIL: Contains a high percentage of unsaturated fats, linoleic acid and vitamin E- makes this oil a great antioxidant and ideal for fighting acne and soothing the skin.
