Because there are such a high number of pollutants in the air, the skin and body are highly susceptible to environmental damage. Air pollutants increase skin aging and conditions such as dry skin, acne, psoriasis, rashes, cellulite, and eczema. The use of seaweed nourishes, protects, and increases circulation making it vital to maintaining healthy skin and body.
Seaweed is loaded with vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and amino acids that are essential in maintaining healthy, fresh and youthful skin. This natural marine wonder helps slow the aging skin process while protecting it from the harsh environmental elements in the air and water. Essential vitamins include: A1, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, E, K, pantothenic acid, folic acid, and niacin.
As well as being rich with antioxidants such as beta-carotene and over 60 trace elements that include potassium, calcium, iodine, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, zinc and manganese, seaweed is a major source of B12. Selenium and ascorbic acid protects the skin from damaging free radicals.
Seaweed also contains fatty acids to combat skin irritation and inflammation.
