We’re Different from other Skincare Companies. We don’t use Water as a Cheap Additive.
The absence of water means the absence of microorganisms –eliminating the need to use a preservative. It also means we don’t need to use emulsifiers to mix oil and water together, stabilizers so that the mixture stays mixed, or thickeners to avoid a runny-sloppy mess. Our products are pure plant materials from their natural source.
Potent and concentrated products means you use less. Our body butters are up to five times more concentrated than a standard body lotion. A little goes a long way and it stays on your skin, protecting you throughout the day. Lotions typically use 80% water, which dilutes the benefits of the lotion. It doesn’t have any lasting qualities so you need to keep reapplying to get any benefit.
The nutrients in our ingredients we use are more stable in their natural non-aqueous form. We don’t add any extra heat to any of the ingredients we use (aside from soap and candles) which means our ingredients are in their purest state, raw, potent, and easily absorbed by the skin.
The highly concentrated products free from preservatives and other synthetics means they are packed with nutrients making your skin healthier. It also means you save on wasteful packaging, money and shipping costs. You can't beat nature.
Did you know seaweed starts its growing period around Christmas, when Earth is tilted away from the sun in our northern hemisphere?
It’s timely to note the power of nori especially as many people, especially here in SeaLuxe's home base of British Columbia, follow a vegetarian or vegan diet.
How adult we felt when we went to the mall with our friends to buy an Orange Julius with a few quarters in our pockets to sip on as we hung out in the food court! Check out this smoothie recipe for a healthy version, with bladderwrack.
All this talk of how good Bladderwrack is for you has resulted in you guys asking, “I’m game, so where do I find it?” We’re so happy to hear your interest in this wonderful sea green.
Bladderwrack, a brown seaweed often found on our local beaches, contains a powerful anti-inflammatory called fucoidan. In SeaLuxe's experience, this is one of the best ingredients in the battle against redness of the skin.
Brrrr, it's cold out there! But this weather is perfect for warm smoothies! We're delighted to share this recipe for our delicious and filling pear ginger smoothie with you.
The nori industry in Japan was in decline after the Second World War as farmers were having issues with its cultivation. Harvests were unpredictable due to being particularly susceptible to pollution in ocean waters as well as typhoons.
Cleansers have one job – to remove make-up, dead skin cells, dirt and oil. Good cleansers usually are cream or oil-based that come with skin conditioning butters and/or oils that dissolve excess grease and grime.
Alright, seaweed lovers (and soon-to-be seaweed lovers), we have a smoothie recipe for you! We decided to start with using wakame as the sea green because it is widely available from your local health food store and it has fabulous powers.
Like with other sea greens, wakame contains high levels of calcium, iodine, niacin, and omega-3 fatty acids. Studies have shown that it, like other brown seaweeds, also contains fucoxanthin which can help burn fat.
