Seaweed Bath Company Wildly Natural Seaweed Detox Cellulite Soap contains:
- Kukui Oil: Brought to Hawaii by early Polynesian settlers, the Kukui Nut Tree is so embedded in Hawaiian culture that it is the state tree of Hawaii. The Seaweed Bath Co.'s pure Kukui Oil, rich in oleic, linoleic and linoleic acids, is a potent natural moisturizer that helps soothe dry, flaking and scaling skin.
- Coffee arabica (Green Coffee): Green coffee beans contain a variety of potentially healthful components, including chlorogenic acids and related compounds, which have antioxidant and other protective effects on cell functions. Some of these compounds may be converted by intestinal bacteria into different compounds with similar effects. Chlorogenic acids and related compounds found in green coffee extract also have stabilizing effects on blood vessel function, and regulating effects on body fat metabolism.
- Bladderwrack Seaweed: For generations, cultures around the world have used the power of seaweed to help soothe irritated, flaking and scaling skin. Today, seaweed-based bath products are an integral part of both Thalassotherapy and Balneotherapy--holistic water-based therapies that help manage the skin conditions associated with psoriasis and eczema.
Today, The Seaweed Bath Co. sustainably harvests fresh bladderwrack seaweed off the coast of Maine to create the highest quality, all-natural products. Bladderwrack seaweed is rich in essential and non-essential amino acids found in your skin. Amino acids can help to hydrate dry skin and alleviate flaking, scaling and red skin often associated with certain skin conditions. Bladderwrack seaweed also contains fucoidan, a potent natural anti-inflammatory, and potassium and iodine, which stimulate the thyroid and help to detoxify the body. The nutrients in bladderwrack seaweed also increase pH alkaline levels in the bloodstream while simultaneously reducing acidity levels in the body and the skin.
Soaking in a seaweed bath allows your body to easily absorb a large amount of valuable nutrients, amino acids and oils that nourish the skin.

History of The Seaweed Bath Co.
Adam Grossman, founder of The Seaweed Bath Co., LLC., knows first-hand about the everyday challenges of psoriasis and eczema, as he is a long-time psoriasis sufferer who struggled daily to find ways to improve the condition of his skin.
Psoriasis and eczema are chronic skin diseases, for which there is currently no cure. The severe skin inflammation and irritation associated with psoriasis and eczema lead to dry, itchy, red, flaking and scaling skin.
After trying numerous "miracle" treatments and meeting with countless psoriasis specialists, Adam hopelessly watched as his flaking, scaling, and red skin worsened. Psoriasis took its toll on him both physically and emotionally.
Adam's first psoriasis symptoms appeared on his head. He had no clue what it was. His skin then became very red and started itching, scaling and flaking. Before long, he had moderate to severe psoriasis on his head, knees, feet, elbows, thighs and worst of all, his hands. After getting out of the shower, Adam's skin would literally drip off his hands. He spent thousands of dollars on different creams and ointments to try to get rid of the disease, only to find that his psoriasis symptoms would always come back worse than before. His journey, which ultimately led him to founding The Seaweed Bath Co., was simply fueled by his fear of the long-term damage he was doing to himself using pharmaceutical medicines.
After deciding against biologics, Adam set out to find natural alternative ways to fight his psoriasis symptoms and soothe his itching, flaking and scaling skin. After all, psoriasis is a chronic disease and he didn't want to spend the rest of his life hiding.
Adam's dermatologists suggested that he soak in the ocean as often as possible. After spending time in the ocean, he always felt and saw a noticeable improvement in his flaking, red skin. Having read many articles and hearing success stories in online community forums and psoriasis and eczema blogs about how the ocean's nutrients improve the effects of psoriasis and eczema for many sufferers, he took note. Recognizing the difficulty he had in finding the time and resources to soak in the ocean every day, he searched for a feasible way to bring the ocean into his own home to treat and soothe his psoriasis on a daily basis.
Adam focused his studies on two popular natural alternative methods often used to improve scaling, flaking and red skin: Thalassotherapy and Balneotherapy.
Through this learning process, he quickly discovered the substantial benefits of seaweed and how Americans with skin conditions were starting to use it more and more. While seaweed is a relatively new ingredient used to fight flaking and scaling skin in North America, Northern European and Asian cultures have used seaweed plucked from frigid, nutrient-rich waters for centuries to alleviate the conditions that lead to irritated and red skin.
After countless hours of online and offline discussions and research, which included many hours soaking in the bath tub, he found that certain varieties of seaweed effectively and dramatically reduced the redness, dryness, scaling and flaking of his irritated skin. The brown seaweed which The Seaweed Bath Co. use in all their products is known to be a potent natural anti-inflammatory. They are working with the University of Manitoba in Canada to further their already substantial research on the effects of brown seaweed on skin conditions including psoriasis. Adam's experience was proof enough however. After using seaweed-based formulas for only a short period of time, his flaking and scaling diminished and the redness of his skin faded. Over the course of months, he completely stopped his topical steroids and has not had to go back on them since.
Adam was so encouraged by the positive effects of the seaweed on his skin and his overall well-being, he decided to create a line of all-natural seaweed bath cosmetic products to share with other sufferers of skin problems. He am proud to say that The Seaweed Bath Co., LLC offers a variety of affordable, all-natural cosmetic products to help sufferers like you better manage severely irritated skin. Today, Adam travels around the US speaking to groups of sufferers and their loved ones about the natural ways that they can take control of their skin condition..
(from the Greek word thalassa, meaning "sea") involves ocean-based treatments, which often utilize seaweed, salt water and marine mud. While people have recognized the healing powers of the ocean for thousands of years, Thalassotherapy was developed in the seaside towns of France during the 1800's to take advantage of these benefits. Today, common treatments offered at spas including seawater baths, marine mud baths, seaweed wraps and massages. Thalassotherapy takes advantage of the minerals found in seawater, seaweed and marine mud, including magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium, and iodine. Theses minerals have been shown to be beneficial to the skin and a person's general health and well-being. The salt water soothes dry skin and fights acne, psoriasis and eczema.
(from the Latin word balneum, meaning "bath") involves the use of natural thermal and mineral water to alleviate skin conditions and improve a person's general well-being. Treatments generally take place in bathtubs, pools or natural bodies of water. The benefits of Balneotherapy have been recognized for thousands of years. Early Roman and Green civilizations often used mineral-rich hot springs to treat various ailments. Today, Balneotherapy can involve either hot or cold water and encompasses a wide range of spa therapies. Balneotherapy can be used to treat a variety of illnesses and ailments, including psoriatic arthritis, acne, dermatitis, psoriasis, and eczema. The water used in Balneotherapy often contains a high content of minerals and nutrients. Minerals that can be absorbed through Balneotherapy include silica, sulfur, selenium, radium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, lithium, potassium, manganese, bromine, and iodine.
