If you’re reading this, you probably already know that we here at Sealuxe headquarters consider seaweed a miracle ingredient in skincare.
Seaweed is a rich source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which all go a long way to nourishing and protecting your skin. The marine plant also contains compounds such as fucoidan and alginic acid, which have huge anti-inflammatory benefits.
What you might not know, though, are the different kinds of seaweed and why Sealuxe loves to incorporate them into our products.
Here are the top three types of seaweed found in Sealuxe products:
- Kelp. Kelp is a brown seaweed loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. This combination makes it an excellent choice for hydrating and firming the skin.
- Bladderwrack. Bladderwrack can stimulate collagen production, which can help improve the skin's elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With its nourishing and revitalizing properties, bladderwrack is an ideal ingredient to include in skincare products for a healthy, radiant complexion.
- Wakame. Wakame is also a brown seaweed, rich in vitamins A, C, and E. Not only does it have incredible moisturizing properties, but it also helps protect the skin from environmental damage.
- Dulse. Dulse is a red seaweed rich in antioxidants that help improve the skin’s elasticity while going a long way to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
A study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology in 2018 showed that the 31 female participants who were given a skin care product containing seaweed extract significantly improved their skin hydration levels after four weeks of use.
The team of researchers involved in this study measured skin hydration levels using a device called the corneometer, which measures the skin's moisture content (hello! Where can I buy one of these?!).
Sealuxe uses only the highest-quality, sustainably sourced seaweed in our skincare products to ensure that you get the maximum benefits. But don’t take our word for it – try Sealuxe and see the difference our products can make for your skin!
