[Global] “You know what I really feel like doing today? Putting seaweed on my face…” said nobody ever. There’s just nothing glam about that slimy stuff you try to avoid stepping on at the beach—unless it happens to served to you at an upmarket sushi joint. But let’s be honest—none of us thought we’d ever be putting charcoal or blood plasma on our faces, and here we are!
Yep, it’s official: seaweed is the next big skincare superfood. Marine-sourced ingredients like kelp and algae are rich in antioxidants, amino acids and nutrients, which do everything from protecting your skin against free radical damage, unclogging blocked pores and giving you a radiant glow. And we promise they won’t even make you look like this:
Asarai Response Theory Serum
This powerful serum utilises Chondrus crispus (a potent form of seaweed packed with antioxidants) to fight back against free radical damage and stimulate skin cell repair. It also contains soothing ingredients like oat extract, chamomile and kakadu plum for a baby soft complexion.
Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing Lotion
Everyone is obsessed with Mario’s aloe products, but we say it’s the seaweed that’s the unsung hero! This cleansing lotion uses its anti-inflammatory properties to relieve sensitive skin, while the mild witch hazel removes pore-clogging debris.
Peter Thomas Roth Blue Marine Algae Intense Hydrating Mask
Rubbing algae all over your face may not feel as glamorous as a gold or pink clay face mask, but it could be even better. This one combines the rejuvenating properties of blue marine algae with protective Arctic glacial antarcticine with hydrating Korean Juju Island tea. Yep, this is one exotic face mask!
Estee Lauder Micro-Algae Pore Minimising Hydra Lotion
Infused with a nutrient-dense micro-algae blend of Chlorella, Spirulina, and Laminaria saccharina, this lightweight face lotion keeps the skin glowy and hydrated all day long.
The Body Shop Seaweed Oil-Balancing Clay Mask
This clay mask purifies and balances the skin, leaving it feeling fresh, revitalised and practically pore-less!
