Ingredient of the month: Algae and Kelp Extract

 ALGAE AND KELP EXTRACTS Seaweedcoverphoto

WHAT IT IS 

Like many of nature’s superpowers, algae and kelp extracts are unassuming to the eye but remarkably potent, rich in both antioxidants and skin-nourishing minerals that work wonders for your health and skin. WHY WE LOVE IT Sea plants and human blood plasma have nearly the same mineral levels, making algae and kelp among the most bioavailable skincare ingredients. When you smooth kelp and algae extracts on your skin, the cells readily absorb their high concentration of magnesium, calcium and potassium to help boost collagen synthesis and prevent wrinkles. As an added bonus these seaweed powerhouses contain trace elements such as zinc, iodine and copper which help combat chronically dry skin and increase elasticity. 287500_10151298437053054_231306213_o Lisa Walsh, Founder of Indigena, diving for Seaweed in our beautiful province FAST FACTS: - Laminaria, commonly known as kelp, contain the highest concentration of minerals of all algae. - Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, laminaria is frequently ingested to treat high cholesterol, blood pressure and other inflammatory disorders. - Seaweed harvesting in Canada is monitored to ensure the waters where it is pulled from are free of pollutants, yielding food grade quality suitable for spa use.
