Seaweed can benefit acne prone skin, and skin prone to hormonal flare ups, due to its anti- bacterial qualities and ability to help maintain sebum control.

Acne can be experienced at any age and the tendency can be to use skin- stripping products. Phoenix & Providence skincare is gentle, natural, and effective, formulated to balance and nurture to skin’s microbiome.

“I’ve been using Phoenix & Providence skincare all week in the evening before bed since we got back from the islands, I suffer with awful acne but haven’t applied foundation for a few days now, coincidental? Don’t think so!’

‘The Nurture Face Oil is my favourite P & P product so far. It is easily absorbed, light enough that it doesn't make my skin feel greasy but rich enough that it feels like a real treat.  I have problem skin and this oil hasn't caused any breakouts like other oils have in the past.’

Why Use Phoenix & Providence Skincare? 

The seaweed used in Phoenix & Providence skincare is grown in the crystal clear waters surrounding the Isles of Scilly, 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall. The seaweed is foraged from the shores of the beautiful island of St. Martin’s, dried in the Scillonian sunshine and infused in organic jojoba oil for a full lunar cycle.

The ingredients used in our skincare are natural, organic, and kind to the environment, all seaweed is harvested by hand and the products made with love, sharing the island ethos of intentional living.
