Seaweed in skincare rich in minerals, vitamins
I wanted to talk about the minerals, vitamins and amino acids that are loaded in in seaweed. The complex values between nutritional to skincare regimes have known in cultures for centuries. Nice to know we are getting back to basics, however, with the current technology consumers are taking a closer look at their purchasing choices that feature more natural ingredients that support their skin from the inside out.
Did you know there are biological similarities between seawater and human plasma. The balance of nutrients in marine ingredients are similar to what the human tissue needs. This was explained by Angela Eriksen-Stanley, the director of education for Phytomer Group.
Our goal at the salon is to enhance and catalyze the skin’s repair process along with the marine products that will soothe and heal tissue rapidly which we call cell recovery. The process of the new skin cells coming up from underneath what you see on the top takes about 38-30 days. To appear younger and keep our skin younger looking we must work from the inside out by correcting damage underneath the cells will be repaired and smooth out the skin on top with constant renewal. This is why so many medspas and salon facial treatments are effective in removing the dead skin with fruit acids, hyluronic acids to slough off, clean off the dead cells that accumulate their appearing to “wrinkle”. When we constant remove them from the surface, our new skin will move to the top quickly and give our skin the fresh look and more youthful appearance.
Did you know there are over 40,000 species of seaweed? Fascinating. Thousands of types of algae available, product formulators have their work cut out which I have experienced. Every little item that you put into a mixture will have an effect on the result and outcome of the product. One comment was made believing that peptides extracted from green microalgae Chlorella provide amazing anti-aging benefits. the peptides derived from it provide amino acids to the fibroblasts. This helps to make collagen cellulite reduce. The bacteria Thermus thermophilus contain enzymes that help protect the skin itself. This particular bacteria was found on the coast of Japan in 1971 and is extremely stable because of the harsh environment that it was growing in. Though you might find this interesting, as we age Stem cells make repairs to our skin, but as we age they slow and even lose their ability to move around in the tissue to where repairs are needed.
