Our Wildly Natural Seaweed Butters combine our bladderwrack seaweed extract with natural neem oil to moisturize and soothe your skin anywhere, anytime with a mess-free application.
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.
In its natural state, beeswax is firm but pliable. Melted and combined with other ingredients, beeswax adds body to skin care products. Like other beehive products, including honey and royal jelly, beeswax offers anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral benefits as well as offering potential benefits when treating skin irritation.
Neem Oil is cold-pressed from the seeds of the Neem Tree. Neem Oil has been the go-to herb for over 5,000 years for red, hot, or challenged skin conditions. Neem Oil is naturally rich in essential fatty acids that soothe and nourish the skin.
Vitamin E constitutes a family of 8 antioxidants, which include 4 tocopherols and 4 tocotrienols. Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that helps protect cells against damage caused by free radicals.
