Marine Source of Life

Scientific research indicates that the earliest living cells emerged from the Sea. Once we recognize the seas as the original source of life, the continuing similarities between ocean waters, sea plants and micro algae with human fluid and skin cells seems essential and obvious. Since live cells originated within the sea, it is logical that sea water contains the nutrients and minerals required to sustain life.

An article in Skin Magazine titled The Future of Skin Care provides a valuable overview of the relationship between skin cells and the nutrients provided by sea plant extracts. The article describes how “sea plants absorb and concentrate nutrients beneficial to the human body.” The growth of marine biotechnology science has made these nutrients, not accessible from any land-based source, available for our skin cells through development of highly potent sea plant and micro-algae extracts.

“Researchers have noted the similarities between human skin and various seaweed species, and have found ways to use marine extracts to improve many skin conditions.”

The article Marine Ingredients In Cosmeceuticals published in Inside Cosmeceuticals also concludes that “seaweeds have exceptional properties for protection and enrichment of skin.” The science behind the use of sea plant and algae extracts is described in detail. The evidence is overwhelming. Read the full article here.

Marine Based Skin Care Products

The unique benefits of sea plant extracts have been clearly established and recognized for many years. Some very well known and highly-prized product lines are based upon marine-derived extracts. These products include La Mer™ and Repêchage™.

Beauty Built on Science
Prepare to be Amazed!

The benefits of the Marine Actives ingredients in every Sea Kind product are based on science and confirmed with In Vitro laboratory tests and In Vivo volunteer studies. Examine the scientific research papers supporting our amazing Marine Actives ingredients:

Marine Actives-AN:

Antarctica derived glacial micro-nutrients promote the growth of collagen, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and significantly minimize skin roughness. Increased production of skin elastin keeps skin resilient. The result is firm, youthful and smooth skin. Study the Research.

Marine Actives-HN:

Fermented extracts from sea plants harvested off the coast of Brittany dramatically increase induction of Hyaluronic Acid. HA is essential for skin hydration and firmness and is the key to anti-aging properties.  Study the Research.

Marine Actives-HD:

Fermented micro-nutrients harvested in the Douarnenez Bay of Northern France provide deep skin hydration for intense anti-wrinkle effect and long-term moisture retention.  Study the Research.

Marine Actives-SC:

Fermented extracts from Antarctica dramatically increase induction of collagen and improve skin texture. Visible results include reduction of difficult lip wrinkles.  Study the Research.

Ascophyllym Nodosum; Chondrus Crispus; Fucus Vesiculosus; Laminaria Digitata:

Sea Plant extracts sustainably harvested in the Bay of Fundy. These extracts are renown for increasing skin hydration and reducing irritation.  Study the Research.
