the beauty elixir from the sea
Aphrodite, born of the sea, owes her beauty to seaweeds.
Should you add this abundant sea vegetable to your beauty routine?
By Felicia Tomasko
Seaweeds, although referred to as “weeds,”
are actually sea vegetables rich in vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and other compounds that benefit our physical health-inside
and out. Throughout history, and in cultures around the world, seaweeds have been used as food, medicine, and in cosmetic
and body treatments.
According to naturopath Linda Rector-Page,
author of the twenty-year-old reference book Healthy Healing, sea greens are some of the most
nutritionally dense foods on the planet. In addition to their detoxifying attributes, seaweeds have important antioxidant
and cell protective qualities; they can also strengthen bones, support weight management, deter cellulite build-up, soften
the skin, help heal scars, and promote thyroid health and balance.
Research studies utilizing
different types of seaweed suggest that these vegetables may be significant contributors to lower breast cancer rates among
Asian women. Eating seaweeds has also been shown to regulate menstrual cycles, protect against viral infections, and provide
a source of antioxidants. Seaweeds are shown to have anti-cancer properties and the gel made from kelp has even been shown
to have soothing, anti-ulcer effects and heal damaged skin. Seaweeds are rich in vitamins A, C, E as well as antioxidant polyphenols.
Grouped by color, brown algaes include kelp, kombu, and nori. They are rematerializing, detoxifying, and help reduce cellulite.
Green algaes, like wakame that are rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants, assist in stimulating collagen synthesis. Spirulina
and other blue-green algaes contain concentrated amino acids and stimulate cellular metabolism. Red algaes soothe sensitive
skin, and white algaes are detoxifying and soothing.
We may think of seaweeds as being salty, but
that salty taste is not solely derived from salt (sodium and chloride), a sea of other vital minerals, including iodine, calcium,
magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, iron, zinc, and selenium, also influence their taste. Seaweeds contain the concentrated
balance of minerals found in seawater, which is similar to the balance found in our own body’s plasma and blood. Seaweeds
therefore nourish and remineralize the body.
Kat James, holistic beauty and health expert,
and author of the annually updated classic The Truth About Beauty, raves about the beneficial properties
of seaweeds. James says they “are one of the most important ingredients in skincare because of their ability (depending
on concentration and the type of seaweed) to stimulate circulation, detoxification, and even collagen production, while at
the same time giving an immediate plump softness to the skin without the irritation and potential harm of daily alpha-hydroxy
Due to this wide range of benefits
provided by seaweeds, whole or extracted components of the plants are used in beauty care products and spa treatments from
wraps and bath salts to exfoliants, masks, and lotions. When absorbed by the skin, seaweeds promote detoxification and nourish
At ocean-side spas, seaweed treatments attract those seeking to draw toxins
from the body. Visitors flock from all over the world to visit California’s famous “grotto at Corona” Glen
Ivy Spa and Hot Springs, and coat their skin with a luxurious mask made of a mixture of aloe and seaweed used in an underground
hydrating cave-like chamber.
Between spa visits, bathing in seaweeds is detoxifying, nourishing, and
rejuvenating. Barbara Stephens-Lewellan, who gathers seaweeds from a pristine stretch of northern California coast for the
Mendocino Sea Vegetable Company, prepares seaweeds especially for bathing by soaking them in infusions of sea salt and lavender.
James also raves about bathing with sea vegetables and using them on the skin to promote lymphatic circulation and detoxification.
She recommends adding some powdered spirulina to your bathwater along with your favorite bath salts and essential oils. Additionally,
James suggests picking up dried kombu, nori, or dulse chips at the health food store, blending them in a Vita-Mix or other
durable food processor/blender, and boiling them in pure or filtered water. After cooling, the resulting mineral-rich water
can be used for bathing or a nourishing rinse.
The buzz around seaweeds has become much more
audible lately. This has led to the proliferation of seaweed-enriched body care products and seaweed dishes on menus. Although
currently plentiful, conservation of seaweed sources, reduction of pollution, and preservation of ocean purity are important
concerns even for those of us who don’t live on a coastline. Organizations, including the Ocean Protection Coalition,
are involved in this conservation work.
Sea vegetables are both farmed (much commercial
nori is grown off the coast of Japan) and collected by hand from the ocean. People who harvest sea vegetables, such as Stephens-Lewellan,
liken their craft to trimming the hair of Grandmother Ocean. This may be a romantic image for seaweeds that lack an attractive
physical appearance, but their importance for health and beauty are unparalleled.
