Seaweed Benefits for Dry Skin
Rich in Essential Nutrients
Seaweed is a powerhouse of essential nutrients that are vital for maintaining healthy, hydrated skin. It contains an abundance of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids. These elements work in harmony to replenish moisture levels and restore the skin's natural balance. Vitamins A, C, and E present in seaweed nourish the skin, combat free radicals, and promote cell regeneration, while minerals like potassium, calcium, and magnesium help maintain the skin's elasticity and protect against dryness.
One of the most significant advantages of seaweed for dry skin is its exceptional hydrating properties. The polysaccharides found in seaweed act as natural humectants, drawing and retaining moisture in the skin. This hydrating effect creates a protective barrier, preventing moisture loss and leaving the skin feeling supple and smooth.
Soothing and Anti-Inflammatory
Dry skin often comes with irritation and inflammation, leading to discomfort and redness. Seaweed contains various compounds such as fucoidan and phlorotannins, which possess soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. These elements help calm irritated skin, reduce redness, and alleviate itchiness.
Our gentle Balance Cleansing Oil gently cleanses the skin. The oil turns to a light cleansing milk on contact with water, washing away impurities, SPF and make up. Infused with anti-inflammatory seaweed to help soothe strengthen your skin barrier, and naturally anti-bacterial hemp extract, your skin will be left feeling soft and clean.
