Seaweed alleviates the symptoms of problematic and sensitive skin - acne, dermatitis, allergic reactions, hair loss or tame wrinkles. They contain beneficial substances for health and beauty such as vitamins, minerals and trace elements.
The extremely beneficial effects of seaweed on the body are well known. However, algae still have surprising properties that make them highly popular in the cosmetics industry. For example, their high content of minerals and vitamins (iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium, vitamins A, B, C, D, E) has a significant revitalizing effect on the body. The cell wall of algae contains glycoproteins, cellulose and the top layer contains pectins and a substance that ideally filters UVB radiation.
The ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used seaweed for cosmetic purposes. However, the greatest flourishing occurred in the 1970s, when seaweed began to be added to common cosmetic products (shampoos, shower gels, lotions, face masks and creams).
