We often hear about seaweed’s super curative powers for our bodies, both inside and out. One of seaweed’s most effective healing and protective features is for our skin. Seaweed draws its vitamins, mineral salts, and protein directly from the ocean, and using a seaweed bath on our skin can effectively harness those benefits from the sea.
First thing’s first: what is a seaweed bath? Seaweed baths are a relaxingly luxuriant way to reap nature’s natural benefits that have been used medicinally not just in Asia, but also in Europe and Africa for centuries. As you bathe, silky oils derived from seaweed among the saltwater begin to work their effects. Some long-time seaweed bathers profess that the seaweed bath’s hot water and seaweed combination help to ease symptoms of rheumatism and arthritis. Others credit the curative powers of high iodine levels in seawater and seaweed.
Most famously, though, seaweed baths offer effective and soothing treatment for the skin. Seaweed-derived skin treatments offer an all-natural alternative to prescribed medications or chemicals found in so many skincare products. Seaweed baths work by balancing pH (acidity) and by deeply moisturizing.
When one seaweed bath convert and long time psoriasis sufferer, Adam Grossman, sought relief in seaweed, he found the solution he had been searching for. After years of experimenting with various medicinal creams, prescriptions and other biologics to treat his itching, flaking and scaling skin, Adam was ready to give up. For those of us who have suffered from eczema, inflamed or sensitive skin, you the know the search for an effective clearing and healing agent can be like looking for a needle in a haystack – between the scores of drugs a dermatologist can prescribe you, over-the-counter lotions and creams, and the myriad other “solutions” on the market, the quest for a cure can be exhausting.
After researching different species of seaweed and spending countless hours in the bathtub experimenting with different seaweed “recipes”, Adam finally found the cure he was looking for, and now brings those same curative benefits to the rest of the world via his product line, Seaweed Bath Co.
