Marine Ingredients and Botanicals: Superfood for the Skin

Marine Ingredients and Botanicals: Superfood for the Skin

Giant kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera) grows in a thick forest off the coast of Monterey, California.

At Salty Bath, we have built relaxing bathing experiences that heal and restore the body with our bath soaks that are loaded with mineral-rich salts from the Dead Sea and infused with therapeutic-grade botanicals. Soon, we are branching out even further to bring the powerful benefits of the ocean, and specifically sea water, seaweed, kelp and algae to cleanse, hydrate, protect and replenish the whole body.

The ocean has long held the secrets of youth and anti-aging. Phyto-chemicals and 92+ minerals, micro-minerals and structured water along with polysaccharides and so much more make up the magic of the ocean and her bounteous fruit.

Seaweed, sea kelp, and algae offer superior hydration as well as anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits. Combined with protective antioxidant extracts, nourishing plant oils, and reparative botanicals, regular use in skincare products will keep skin youthful and luminous. 

Seaweed itself has more than 50 powerful minerals and, because of that, people have benefited from long soaks in seaweed baths for centuries. The heavy-duty detoxification properties in mineral-rich seaweed nourish and rejuvenate the skin, fight cellulite, and minimize the visible appearance of wrinkles.

The wealth of essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants in seaweed helps in keeping the skin revitalized, moisturized, and youthful. These elements guard the skin against the harmful effects of environmental pollutants and helps to slow down the skin’s aging process. Scientific research has made it evident that seaweed extracts contain anti-aging properties and are a useful ingredient in the manufacturing of skin care cosmetics. The anti-inflammatory properties present in seaweed are useful in treating skin rashes and wounds. The phytonutrients elevate blood flow and bring a healthy glow to the face. Seaweed wraps detoxify and cleanse the skin by expelling toxins out of the pores. Seaweed baths have also been admired among British and Irish people for ages due to their therapeutic effects. – Organic Facts Article
