Marine Actives™ for Skin

 Scientific research indicates that the earliest living cells emerged from the Sea.  Naturally, the similarities in the compositions of human cell structures with sea plant cellular structures are amazingly strong.

Marine Actives™ are Rich in Essential Skin Nutrients

The cells of our bodies desire an uninterrupted supply of critical minerals to maintain optimum cell function and to maintain a youthful and vibrant appearance. Sea water is rich in all of these same critical minerals.

Sea plants absorb from sea water all the minerals essential to our skin in perfect proportion, including zinc, magnesium, phosphorous, calcium, and a variety of trace elements. Sea plant extracts provide the optimum Marine Actives™ for exceptional skin health and rejuvenation.

Marine Actives™ Benefits

Sea Kind has selected the most effective sustainable Marine Actives™ for its products. Our Actives include these miraculous sea plants extracts:

•  Sea Plants sourced from the Bay of Fundy. The Bay of Fundy has the highest tides recorded in the world. More tide water surges into and out of this Bay than flows into the oceans from all rivers. This rugged environment supplies fresh, cold sea water alternating with exposure to abundant sunlight for photosynthesis. Sea Plants respond to these extreme conditions by producing functional exopolysaccharides (EPS) which are the building block of cell wall tissue in plants and in skin.

•   Organic Ascophyllum Nodosum contains complex sulphated polysaccharides that make up approximately 52% of the dry weight.  This sea plant has unique properties to moisturize, firm and soothe not found in terrestrial plant sources or other common marine plants. We utilize a patented, water soluble extract of this sea plant.

•  Organic Fucus Vesiculosus contains magnesium, protein, fucoidan, retinol and derivatives (vitamin A) with advanced skin rejuvenating properties.

•  Organic Laminaria Digitata contains ascorbic acid (vitamin C), calcium, carbohydrates, iron, laminarins, magnesium, manganese, mannitol, niacin (vitamin B3), protein, riboflavin (vitamin B2), sodium, thiamin (vitamin B1) with intense moisturizing properties.

•  Organic Chondrus Crispus (Irish moss) is renowned for its skin soothing properties.

 Sustainable Sourcing

Harvesting Seaplant from Small Boat

All Sea Kind Marine Actives™ are sustainably sourced. Sea plants  from the Bay of Fundy sourced for our marine extracts are hand harvested from small boats using a harvest cutter-rake. The harevest rake is specifically designed to prune the sea plants encouraging rapid regeneration of the plant shoots. This method is labor intensive but it significantly minimizes disturbance to the sea floor ecosystem.

A four year study of Seaweed Management prepared for the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Nova Scotia determined that the impact on the habitat architecture from hand harvesting procedures was minimal. A subsequent study suggested that these was actually an increase in plant productivity benefiting from the pruning harvest method.
