Seaweed contains an amazing wealth of components and nutrients with more than 40 active marine ingredients including – Minerals —Trace elements – Proteins – Oligo elements – Vitamins -Essential Fatty Acids including Omega Oils -Mucopolysaccharides.
These nutrients are found in the highest levels in seaweeds (marine algae), some up to 13,000 times what we find in normal food. (This is the reason we have such great results with skin and body therapies.) In fact some are almost a complete food. These vitamins and minerals are
necessary for the proper functioning of our organs to produce healthy skin, hair and nails. The main advantage of Algologie products from the prime seaweed chosen to the advanced extraction process is the natural power of the seaweed drawn from the heart of the ocean. There are 4 groups of seaweed colours, so as to provide for your particular skin type.
These are micro algae’s of which Spirulina is the most
common. This is a freshwater algae, growing in the alkaline
crater lakes of extinct volcanoes in the pristine regions of Hawaii and South America. The distinct advantage of Spirulina is its 70 % content of protein and high content of Vitamin B12.
These are found close to the surface of the ocean The most
popular being “ulva lactuca” lettuce of the sea, with its irregular edges, is rich in vitamin B and iron, which improves micro circulation and firms the tissues.
Found in the middle of the ocean, the most popular being Laminaria, Fucus, and Ascophyllum. Laminaria contains vitamins, amino acids, phytohormones, and iodine. It contains stimulating and slimming properties, and also
provides the skin with incredible elasticity. This is why the Algae Gel mask is excellent for firming a slackening skin.
Fucus Vesiculosus is used for the treatment of skin conditions as a fundamental nutrient boost for the skin cells and in the fabrication of powders used in balneotherapy and wraps. It eliminates toxins and burns
Found at the bottom of the ocean, tiny and small rarely exposed to light. Chondus Crispus rich in vitamin B12 and C, moisturizing, soothing and nourishing. Found in the seaweed soap and capsules. Lithothamnium and Coralina very rich in Iron, Magnesium, and Calcium. Rich in nutrients for well-being and remineralizing.
Seaweed and seawater are infinite sources of minerals and organic substances with exceptional properties. They contain a wealth of vitamins, minerals and marine trace elements that are able to replenish any deficiencies in the skin and body.
Vitamins are essential for proper functioning and balance of the human organism. Minerals regulate our metabolism and are essential for our growth and development. Trace elements are the conductors of the cellular orchestra of life. These elements serve to revive malnourished cells, oxygenating and boosting their rate of regeneration.
