I consume so much algae in different forms, I'm not surprised my new favorite natural/vegan skin care line is made out of seaweed... I randomly and impulsively purchased OSEA Malibu's Ocean Cleanser, probably because Malibu and the Ocean was mentioned in their online ad. I figured, worst case scenario, if the product doesn't do wonders, the seaweed would most likely stimulate and improve my blood and lymph circulation.
I could not believe the difference this cleanser made within a few days. It completely changed, revitalized and firmed my skin. You know a skin care line works when you get the "Did you get anything done?" question.
After soaking in a restorative algae bath in Argentina, the vegan 100% natural luxury beauty line OSEA founder Jenefer Palmer was inspired to learn more about the healing properties of seaweed. Her exhaustive search led her to the Sea of Patagonia where she discovered the Gigartina species, an algae known for its astoundingly high content of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes. This is the purest, cleanest type of seaweed available and OSEA works with a local partner to ensure eco-responsible hand-harvesting for their products.
The OSEA products are 100% free of synthetic fragrances, genetically modified ingredients, petrochemicals, parabens and sulfates. The skincare line is certified vegan and biodegradable
OSEA's unique blend of sea nutrients and essential oils provide an active and effective formula for well being, employing the power of the sea and its plant life to condition and balance your skin for a lifetime of results you can see.
Marine algae, more commonly known as seaweeds, come in all shapes and sizes. Algae are not plants, even though they sometimes look like them. Ocean-growing algae, commonly known as sea vegetables, could be one of the most important new therapeutic foods. Sea vegetables contain ten to twenty times the minerals of land plants, as well as an abundance of vitamins and other elements necessary for proper metabolism. They have been sought for thousands of years for their ability to prolong life, prevent disease, and enhance life.
Gigartina is a strain of Red Marine Algae that is particularly well suited for skin ailments because of its high content of sulfated polysaccharides and carrageenan.
Now you can experience the amazing restorative powers of Gigartina without having to travel too far. The Ocean Cleanser, Vitamin Sea Serum, Essential Hydrating Oil, Sea Mineral Spray and the Advanced Protection Cream proved that there is always a BBD (Bigger Better Deal) out there when it comes to vegan/eco skincare.
