Seaweed Lotions & Body Care

Do It Yourself spa-like treatments: seaweed lotions and body care

If mermaids had a secret, it would be seaweed, which is very soothing to the skin and helps with skin cell renewal. It is an excellent source of protein, minerals, vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants. It draws out dirt, oils and toxins while adding all those healthy nutrients to the skin.

Seaweed is also known to help reduce the appearance if wrinkles and fine lines by stimulating circulation and replenishing skin moisture. Please enjoy and feel all the benefits of our DIY recipes!
