What is marine skincare?
Marine skincare that we look to, is nothing but a centuries-old Greek treatment called “Thalassotherapy” that involves the use of seaweed and seawater for healing and well-being, although it is not restricted to just that. Seaweed, sea minerals, marine mud, algae, and other elements from the water are used in this form of therapy to promote health, wellness, and beauty. All these mystical components embrace a load of properties that heal, hydrate and regenerate your skin. Thalassotherapy is a luxurious and therapeutic combination of marine actives. In short, marine skincare makes use of ingredients found in the sea with a blend of latest skincare innovations for the upkeep of your skin. This form of skincare is great for achieving glowing, radiant skin while it treats your concerns just right!
How is marine skincare different?
Marine actives like Algae and Seaweed have qualities that make them resilient to their surroundings, allowing them to survive harsh conditions and adapt to the changing environment. They are also subjected to extreme temperature fluctuations and salt stress, permitting them to develop their own protective mechanisms to counteract the impact caused by these stressors. These protective, regenerative and restorative properties make them a powerful ingredient for skincare. Rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants, we don’t think that there’s any other ingredient that is more in sync with your skin. These properties of underwater elements are what sets marine skincare apart from the rest. It not only heals your skin but also gives you a soothing feel and makes your skin look fresh and happy on application of products. This skincare is a step closer to nature and more so, to the shore! It’s clean and safe, making it further better for a daily skin routine.
What are the benefits of marine skincare?
Marine skincare comes with great wonders for your skin. Everyone’s well versed with Sea Salt and its power of natural exfoliation and restoring kin’s health but, there’s a lot more beyond just one of the many actives. Have you heard about the other secrets of the sea? Well, you’ll be surprised to know what they have to offer to your skin. Red Algae, a powerhouse of vitamin C is best known for its moisture retaining and glow boosting properties, whereas Golden Seaweed hydrates skin and combats skin ageing. Not only this, but another large seaweed, Norwegian Kelp, is rich in antioxidants and protects skin from free radicals. Spirulina, a blue green algae improves skin metabolism and soothes skin. And these are just a few!
These actives contain:
~Over 65 Vitamins and 92 Minerals
~ Amino Acids, Ceramides & Omega 3 Fatty Acids
~ Phytochemicals and Polysaccharides
~ Peptides and Vegan Collagen
The list of marine ingredients definitely does not end over here, there are plenty more that are used in the personal care industry. All in all, they make your skin look more plump, healthy and supple!
