The skin is an essential element of our outward projection of beauty, with important physiological and psychological roles. As we age, our skin becomes thinner, fragile, and progressively loses its natural elasticity and ability to maintain hydration. Other skin changes associated with chronologic and photoaging include dryness, the development of fine lines and wrinkles, and irregular pigmentation. These changes prompt individuals to seek cosmetic remedies that can reverse the features of aging skin - restoring radiance and moisture levels, while improving the skin’s overall look.
There continues to be growing public interest in the use of marine-derived, natural resources for development of skin care products. Consumers are increasingly demanding organic, environmentally friendly and innovative cosmeceuticals, that are safe, effective and ethical.
Clinical studies in patients have shown that seaweed-based cosmetics are effective in reducing the signs of skin aging and boosting skin vitality - diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin hydration, and enhancing skin tone; resulting in a smoother, firmer, brighter, and more youthful looking appearance. The natural, bioactive ingredients obtained from seaweed promote beneficial physiological changes in cells, which are necessary for healthier and rejuvenated skin.
