Seaweed extract is a popular ingredient in natural beauty products because it contains a unique and rich blend of vitamins and antioxidants which can benefit a wide range of skin types.

Seaweed is beneficial for acne prone skin 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. 

Here are the Phoenix & Providence products that I’d recommend for your skin type, and why the ingredients they contain are particularly suitable for your skin’s needs.

Renew seaweed and clay face mask


A deeply cleansing, a weekly treatment for congested skin.

  • The anti-bacterial properties of the seaweed detox and balance the skin, acting as a gentle exfoliant.
  • The addition of Bentonite and Kaolin clay naturally draws toxins and extracts impurities; toning, tightening, and leaving skin refreshed and rejuvenated.

‘I bought this face mask because I've been experiencing a lot of breakouts recently, especially around my nose and mouth and lower cheeks (probably because of all the mask wearing), and it's been such a treat for my skin. I've used it several times a week, and not only is it lovely to have an excuse to create a new little self-care ritual and take some time out for myself, it's also been so soothing for my stressed skin. It's definitely helped calm and heal the inflammation of the adult acne without stripping or drying out my skin. A new firm favourite, thank you!’

‘After struggling with regular breakouts for many years, I have been using the Renew Seaweed Mask once a week with amazing results. My skin is appears even and cleansed and it feels so nourished and soft.’

Nurture Face Oil

It is a common (and understandable) misconception that if your skin is oily, you shouldn’t apply a face oil. In fact, a face oil is the perfect product to balance skin.

By stripping your skin of oil and using oil free products, your skin sends messages to produce more sebum. Applying a face oil allows your skin to recognise it can produce less sebum. The molecular structure of plant oils means they can sink in and balance, as opposed to synthetic ingredients that have a larger structure and sit on top of the skin. 

  • Nurture Face Oil is that it is specifically blended with a unique combination of non- comedogenic oils, oils that sink quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy residue.
  • The natural anti- bacterial qualities of seaweed and hemp are specifically beneficial for acne.

‘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.’

Just received the body oil and couldn’t wait to try it. It smells so good and reminds me of being by the sea and is luxurious on the skin. Will definitely be buying again.

The Soothe Hand and Body Balm is perfect for anyone like me prone to eczema. Particularly with so much hand washing and sanitising going on! A little goes a long way, even on my dry hands and it keeps your hands moisturised even during several more washes. For me, it’s great that it doesn’t have irritating essential oils too. I love it!

Trish Peacock

The bath salts are perfect for relocating your soul and mind to a luxurious and peaceful place.


I love using all of your products, but my favourite is the body oil. The smell is sooo wonderful and you only need a small amount. It sinks in beautifully and is particularly good to use just before bed because it is so relaxing.

The Soothe Balm is a must have, just an amazing all purpose magic pot! Great for dry and very dry skin, great for sensitive skin.


I honestly love all of the products, but the bath salts are amazing!!

I’ve used the Soothe Balm on my eczema, heals and some burns and it really calms everything down and is so nourishing, highly recommend 5*

Amy Oliver

I absolutely love the Soothe Balm. I work in hospital (in admin) so obviously my hands can get very dry from all of the hand sanitising gel we have to use. The balm is just so nice and soothing and really does help with my dry skin. I found it so helpful that I brought tins of it for some of my colleagues in Cardiology as Christmas presents- they love it as well.


The body wash smells amazing, and really was lovely to breathe in all of the aromas in the shower. My skin now feels soothed and pampered, thank you so much!

Michelle Gee

I am really enjoying the therapeutic spa like shower gel!

Carolyn Hallet

I adore your body wash which I also use as a bath foam. It smells divine and doesn’t dry my skin. Thank you for choosing sustainable packaging which is always a massive plus.


In love with the Nourish Body Oil, non-greasy, super moisturising, gorgeous scent and all natural. All in beautiful and recyclable bottles. A little bit of luxurious self- care before bed.
