PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Instead of animal tallow (sodium tallowate), common to most soaps, we feature a pure vegetable base of palm and coconut oils. Our Seaweed grains’ scrub action, which helps remove hidden impurities, has been a family favorite in shower or bath for many years. In Spain, Seaweed Soap is even used as part of one’s slimming or anti-cellulite routine. It stimulates circulation and helps discharge toxins. It’s a soap both men and women will love. Benefits: 100% vegetable base; added scrub action – great for use in an anti-cellulite program; no animal fats!
Exfoliation – Seaweed soap cleans the body as traditional soaps do, plus it exfoliates the skin. Gritty bits of seaweed within the soap remove dead cells on the skin. This reveals the newer skin beneath, helps unclog pores and reduces acne breakouts.
Gentle on Skin – Even though it exfoliates, seaweed soap does not result in dry skin. In general, seaweed soap is all natural, containing none of the man-made chemicals in other soaps that can cause allergic reactions in some users.
Nourishment – Seaweed contains several beneficial minerals and vitamins that nourish the skin during the exfoliation process, leaving the skin healthy looking and toned. These include vitamins A1, B2, B6, B12, and minerals like potassium, calcium, iron and zinc. Seaweed soap also encourages blood circulation around the skin, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance.
Cellulite/Stretch Mark Reduction – While there are claims that seaweed soap actually results in fat loss, there is little scientific data backing that claim up. However, websites like SeaweedSkin.com acknowledge that seaweed soap can reduce cellulite and reduce stretch marks, but minimally, and only after extended use.
Animal Friendly – Most soap is made with animal fat that reacts with a lye solution to create a cleaning compound. Seaweed soap is not made with animal fat; it is made by blending vegetable oil fats with seaweed. This can make seaweed soap a good choice for people who prefer not use animal products or complex chemicals.
