Marine plants and extracts are known for revitalising your skin. Sea kelp may not sound particularly glamourous or appealing when it comes to beauty, but this mineral and antioxidant rich seaweed is incredibly nourishing for the skin and is used in my Sea Minerals Collection facial serums, eye creams and body butters and scrub because of its potent anti-ageing properties.
Marine plants are very resilient as they have to survive in extreme, often-changing, environments, which makes them very valuable in skincare and helps prevent damage to amino acids and protects the cell’s membrane.
This further protects against damage caused by free radicals, highly unstable molecules which accelerate the ageing process by attacking healthy cells and damaging collagen. The extract can also ‘re-organise’ the cell membrane to reverse cell damage and restore them to their healthy state.
Sea Kelp contains acids that can bind to toxins in your body, penetrates your skin and draws out impurities.
Natural health proponents maintain that high levels of toxins in the environment overwhelm various systems in the body, including metabolic processes and the immune system.
