FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & TODDLERS 2+
Skin issues. It seems like every person I talk to has dealt with some sort of skin problem at one point of their life or another. Whether it be as extreme as eczema or psoriasis, or your typical dry and flaky skin or scalp, no one’s skin is truly perfect. And while there are many chemical-infused products on the market that claim to target these specific issues, many of them actually cause other complications or only temporarily mask the problem.
Fortunately there are companies out there who know that chemicals can cause more harm than good and strive to use the simplest – and yet most effective – ingredients that nature itself has to offer.
Seaweed Bath Co. is one of these companies and has made it their mission to “provide the highest quality, most effective products crafted from gentle, nourishing ingredients”.
THE PRODUCT: Derived from the mineral-rich waters off the Maine coastline, the Seaweed Bath Co. uses sustainably hand-harvested and certified organic seaweed, helping to bring the ocean’s bounty to your bath. By blending pure Neem and Hawaiian Kukui oils for vitamin E and essential fatty acids, plus natural anti-bacterial and emollient protection, their entire product line helps to empower customers with sensitive skin to find relief and take control of their skin.
Born from the belief that healthy hydration is the basis of true beauty, the Seaweed Bath Co. started when the founder, Adam Grossman, discovered the natural wonder of bladderwrack seaweed to help soothe his own dry, psoriasis-prone skin. Steeped in the ocean’s nutrient-rich waters — and a natural inflammation fighter — this wild brown seaweed has the power to revitalize stressed skin of all types and is now the basis for Seaweed Bath Co.’s products.
With a variety of products including a Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash, Body Soap, Moisturizing Lotion, and Powder Bath [Soaks], the Seaweed Bath Co. can help make every inch of you smooth and irritant-free.
HEALTH-WISE: Since seaweed is rich in essential and non-essential amino acids, the nutrients in The Seaweed Bath Co.'s products can help to soothe irritated, red skin by increasing pH alkaline levels in the bloodstream while simultaneously reducing acidity levels in the body and the skin. This is why those who suffer from irritated, dry, scaling, flaking and/or red skin, can especially benefit from soaking in a seaweed bath, as it allows your body to readily absorb a large amount of valuable nutrients, amino acids and oils that nourish the skin.
Furthermore, the Seaweed Bath Co. products are all-natural and do not contain any artificial colors, dyes or fragrances. With every ingredient being of the highest quality and imported from around the globe for a specific purpose, including Bladderwrack seaweed, Kukui Oil from Hawaii, Argan Oil from Morocco, Dead Sea Salt from Israel, Neem Oil from India, Aloe Vera, Beeswax, and Vitamin E, your skin will truly benefit, whether prone to breakouts and inflammation, or not.
As a side-note, some of the natural ingredients in the Seaweed Bath Co. products, including Kukui Oil and Argan Oil, are derived from nuts and therefore may be dangerous to those who have nut allergies. I myself never thought of this before (since I am not allergic to nuts), and so wanted to bring it to others attention in case they or their children are.
*Children 2 years of age and up can safely use all of The Seaweed Bath Co. products as directed and when appropriate. However, if any irritation occurs, please discontinue use immediately. For babies under 24 months of age, it is best to keep the use of any products on the skin [no matter what the brand] to a minimum.
FINAL THOUGHTS: The older I’ve gotten – and the fact that I have gone through two pregnancies – has really changed my skin. Now more sensitive than it has ever been, my skin will immediately tell me if there is an ingredient in a product that it doesn’t like (and therefore one that I probably shouldn’t be using in the first place).
For this reason, as well as the fact that I have become much more knowledgeable about skincare [and all of the ingredients and chemicals that companies throw into it that should not be put anywhere near your body, let alone absorbed into your skin], I have really come to appreciate simple, nature-derived products more than ever. And those from Seaweed Bath Co. do not disappoint.
Originally developed for people with sensitive skin, their products not only smell great, they make my skin, scalp, etc. feel soft and smooth, just like nature intended them to. And I love the fact that I can use them on my toddler too and don’t have to worry about his possible reactions to them, or what the long-term consequences of putting something unknown onto a member of my family’s skin might be.
