Seaweed Benefits for Sensitive Skin and Rosacea
Calming & Soothing
The Bladderwrack seaweed we use in Phoenix & Providence skincare contains natural anti-inflammatory compounds such as fucoidan, which can help calm irritated skin. Rich in minerals such as zinc, magnesium and selenium, seaweed can help soothe redness and repair skin. Seaweed is also a rich in iodine known to help skin cell regeneration. These properties can reduce redness, alleviate itching, and promote an overall sense of relief for those dealing with skin sensitivity.
Balancing & Clarifying
Seaweed has natural detoxifying properties that can help remove impurities and balance the skin's oil production. This is particularly beneficial for individuals with rosacea-prone skin, as imbalances in sebum production can contribute to flare-ups and exacerbate symptoms. The minerals and amino acids found in seaweed work to purify the skin, regulate sebum production, and promote a clearer, more even-toned complexion.
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.
‘I cannot recommend highly enough all P & P products. I have to be careful what I use on my skin following extensive and aggressive cancer treatments. Phoenix & Providence is the best and the gentlest I have used. Seaweed has such healing properties and it shows. My skin is lovely and soft and supple, I would not use anything else now!’
Free from essential oils and fragrance, our 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.
Light, unscented, and gentle, our seaweed infused Nurture Face Oil is packed with essential vitamins and fatty acids that promote collagen production, brightening, plumping, soothing the skin, and smoothing fine lines. Massage 4 or 5 drops of oil into damp skin, morning, and evening.
Our Soothe Balm is packed with vitamin rich seaweed that helps to soften skin and calm irritation. It is important to keep your sensitive skincare ritual simple, but if you find your skin needs a little extra boost, use Soothe for an occasional overnight treatment.
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.
