For generations, cultures around the world have used the power of seaweed to help soothe irritated, flaking and scaling skin. Today, seaweed-based bath products are an integral part of both Thalassotherapy and Balneotherapy--holistic water-based therapies that help manage the skin conditions associated with psoriasis and eczema.
Today, The Seaweed Bath Co. sustainably harvests fresh bladderwrack seaweed off the coast of Maine to create the highest quality, all-natural products. Bladderwrack seaweed is rich in essential and non-essential amino acids found in your skin. Amino acids can help to hydrate dry skin and alleviate flaking, scaling and red skin often associated with certain skin conditions. Bladderwrack seaweed also contains fucoidan, a potent natural anti-inflammatory, and potassium and iodine, which stimulate the thyroid and help to detoxify the body. The nutrients in bladderwrack seaweed also increase pH alkaline levels in the bloodstream while simultaneously reducing acidity levels in the body and the skin.
Soaking in a seaweed bath allows your body to easily absorb a large amount of valuable nutrients, amino acids and oils that nourish the skin.
"Iodine works to help cure illnesses and balance Ph levels throughout the body. As the skin is the largest organ in the body, the trace minerals and iodine found in this seaweed are conducive to healthy skin and therefore have a positive affect on the conditions that lead to skin irritation."
Dr. Aaron Chadwick Director of Florida Natural Healthcare
"Seaweed is a natural source of Omega-3 fats which are helpful for psoriasis and eczema."
