Bustle touts seaweed as the next big thing in skincare
With its high nutrient content, the health benefits of seaweed have been lauded in certain communities for generations. As well as introducing more vitamins, minerals and trace elements to your meals, this sea vegetable can also work wonders as an ingredient in skincare products. Recently we reported on the fact that the Duchess of Cambridge herself is relying on this plant to maintain her flawless complexion post-pregnancy. Now, the lifestyle website Bustle has showcased seaweed for its incredible anti-aging abilities.
"Algae has come under the discerning gaze of the skincare industry lately due to its omega-3s, antioxidants, peptides, and its ability to care for itself in demanding environments such as the deep sea floor [and] the sun-soaked surface of the ocean," the source notes.
The outlet reports that a few companies that began investigating seaweed for its potential as a renewable energy source have expanded into cosmetics after discovering compounds in this plant that may facilitate cell regeneration and protection. Seaweed has also been tapped as a way to moisturize and nourish the deeper layers of the skin for a glowing complexion.
But as beneficial as seaweed can be in your skincare regimen, it is even more impressive as a part of your diet. The nutrients in this sea vegetable have been shown to improve blood pressure, bolster weight loss efforts and even support brain health. Seagreens® brown wrack seaweed is sustainably wild-harvested in the Scottish Outer Hebrides and can enhance the nutritional value of your food as well as the flavor as The Mineral Salt and the Culinary Ingredient.
