Student-developed seaweed skin lotion wows at the Assembly in Northern Ireland
One of the key ways to ensure increase innovation and environmental awareness in the years to come is to instill these values in younger generations. This week, a showcase held at the Northern Ireland Assembly in Belfast accomplished just that. At the event, students from six higher education institutions across the country had the opportunity to display their handiwork before Northern Ireland's leaders and a host of expectant press.
"Young designers modeled their latest designs on the catwalk in Parliament Buildings, as students displayed a prototype disease-busting, hands-free pedal bin for hospitals alongside devices for use in film, broadcasting, sports and renewable energy generation," The Belfast Telegraph reports.
Among the inventions on show was a rejuvenating skin lotion that was derived from nutrient-rich seaweed. The award-winning creation illustrates a willingness among younger generations to reevaluate how we see natural resources that have long been taken for granted or overlooked altogether.
This isn't the first time seaweed has been tapped for its potential role in skin care. The Duchess of Cambridge herself, Kate Middleton, was the recipient of a highly anticipated seaweed lotion concocted by the cosmetic masterminds at Lancôme earlier this year.
Many of the benefits of seaweed that make it such a powerful anti-aging agent can also enhance your health in other ways. Seagreens® seaweed, wild-harvested in the Scottish Outer Hebrides, is rich in vitamins, minerals and trace elements, and can easily be incorporated in your diet as Food Capsules, The Mineral Salt and more.
