Add some ocean goodness to your bathtime routine with our sustainable seaweed kit. With Epsom bath salts and organic Fucus serratus from Ireland, you’ll finish your evening soak feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Our seaweed is a species called Fucus serratus. It’s farmed in Donegal, Ireland, where it’s sustainably harvested by hand from wild Atlantic waters. The seaweed in our bath kits has a high mineral and vitamin content. It’s been used for centuries to promote healthy skin.
Our Seaweed Bath Kit includes:
250g of Fucus serratus seaweed
A 300ml glass bottle of soothing Epsom salt
An organic cotton mesh bag to add the seaweed to your bathwater (unless you want it to be floating around!)
A handy linen bag to put everything in
What is Fucus serratus?
There are many different types of seaweed. Some can be eaten and others, like our Fucus Serratus, are instead ideal for bath and skincare products.
Fucus Serratus is also known as Toothed Wrack or Serrated Wrack. It’s found in the North Atlantic and survives by filtering the water for nutrients. As a result, it has a high mineral and vitamin content. The natural oils that are extracted when you add it to a warm bath include antioxidant compounds that promote anti-ageing, conditioning and moisturising effects on the skin, hair and face.
The Benefits of a Fucus serratus Seaweed Bath
Studies have shown that Fucus serratus improves Type 1 collagen production in the skin.
This seaweed contains the carotenoids fucoxanthin and beta-carotene, and Vitamin E.
Fucus Serratus has been shown to encourage the synthesis of new collagen and prevent the breakdown of existing collagen, in turn becoming a foundation of many anti-ageing treatments.
This seaweed is not edible.
