Sea Kelp, Algae and Salmon Roe have been buzzwords in the beauty industry for some time. Found in our oceans, these marine-based skincare ingredients are naturally beneficial for skin known for their moisturising, anti-ageing and mineral-enhancing qualities. Meet the brands bringing the secrets of the sea to your bathroom cabinet.
Naturally rich in iodine, sea kelp has been proven to help both decelerate the ageing process in blood cells and regulate thyroid hormones. What’s more, the saltwater in kelp acts as a great hydrator. Applying these qualities to skin has been a mission of the beauty industry for decades but one that celebrated brand, La Mer, has made a great success of with their marine-based skincare since launching in 1965.
Within each pot of its signature, Crème de la Mer (30ml) which starts from £125.00 from Space NK Apothecary is the cheapest than the usual £130.00 saving you £5.00. (Thank us later!). In each pot you’ll find the trademark-protected Miracle Broth™ (read more about La Mer's brand story), a clever concoction of fermented sea kelp, first created by founder Dr. Max Huber through a process of over 6,000 trials. Formed over a period of three to four months, each batch of kelp is infused with light and sound, to stimulate the creation of nutrients. From the process of responsible harvesting to each pot of the iconic Soft Cream or Perfecting Treatment, La Mer’s ‘Sea to Skin’ philosophy continues to prove that seaweed is a natural beauty addict’s best weapon.
With its supple texture and fresh fragrance Supple in texture, La Mer’s Moisturising Soft Cream is good enough to bathe in. But, bear in mind, the potent concentration of Miracle Broth™ in the cream’s formula is highly effective in small doses.
