The power of

Seaweed is naturally high in iodine, minerals, salts and vitamins. Together, these properties work to leave your skin feeling smooth and hydrated, while its conditioning benefits work to naturally repair skin. Being of a non-oily nature makes it particularly suitable for oily and combination skin.

Did you know?

Within our skin are oil glands called sebaceous glands, which produce oil called sebum. Sebum travels up to the surface of the skin lubricating and protecting it from drying out. Overactive sebaceous glands produce more sebum than the skin needs. This can lead to skin problems such as spots, blackheads, pimples, acne and blemishes. Our seaweed products have a unique and innovative oil-balancing technology that gives an instantly matte complexion where skin is oily and provides moisture to where skin is dry.
