Seaweed Soap

Here at The Candle Tree we stock a wonderful selection of French soaps, in particular our seaweed soap has extra special skin benefits. All our 100g French Artisan soaps are enriched with Bio Argan Oil, these soaps are without artificial fragrance and colour.

Seaweed soap brings nourishment, exfoliation and a natural source of nutrients to your skin care routine. In this case, nature really does provide everything truly beneficial for your skin. Take a look at these benefits more closely:

• Exfoliation

Seaweed is a natural and gentle exfoliator. This helps naturally and gently remove the dead layers of skin, as well as assisting in removing dirt and oil that can clog our pores. Its inherent exfoliation action rejuvenates and cleanses without using harsh chemicals.

• Elasticity
The vitamins and minerals in our seaweed soap will help to increase circulation and detoxify your skin. This will help to keep your skin healthy, toned, plumped and reduces imperfections such as scars, stretch marks, and cellulite. Seaweed does wonders to aging skin by working to promote tissue regeneration activities in the skin to create skin elasticity.

Hair Nourishment
Seaweed minerals help to nourish the hair by feeding the shafts and the ducts of the scalp with nutrients to help improve the health of the hair. Seaweed has a complete spectrum of chelated minerals, which makes it easy to absorb into your hair giving dull lifeless hair their texture and shine.

• Purifying & Detoxifying
Seaweed extracts are a popular choice for oily or acne prone skin because of it’s ability to work gently to purify and detoxify whilst promoting circulation and healthy skin rejuvenation.

• Hydrating
Seaweed is full of lipids, proteins, minerals and vitamins, which are easy to absorb to deeply moisturize and nourish the skin. Research also shows that nutrients from seaweeds are better able to penetrate deep into the skin more efficiently than other skin care ingredients to help your skin maintain it’s firmness and hydration.

• Re-mineralizing
Seaweed is packed with high concentrations of minerals such as fluorine, magnesium and calcium which will enable you to achieve and restore a radiant skin complexion. The minerals contained in seaweed help to maintain the skins natural moisture balance – which is neither too dry or too oily.

• Anti-inflammatory
Seaweed has therapeutic properties in the treatment of sensitive and allergy prone skin. Seaweed is high in vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12 which is useful in protecting the skins surface and reduction of inflammation. It is a used as active ingredient for many in modern skin care products because of it’s natural tendency to reduce excessive irritation and redness.

• Oxygenating
If you combine seaweed into a skin massage for approximately 10 minutes, the the oxygen content on the massaged areas will increase by up to 15 percent! Lymphatic drainage is also improved since the strokes and pressure on the skin helps in the release of toxins.

• Natural, Organic and Pure
Seaweed in the deep seas is as pure as they come. You can be sure that there are no artificial genetic manipulation or fertilizers used meaning what you are putting on and into your bodies is chemical free.

Our handmade French soaps are infused with many natural ingredients and our seaweed soap captures all the richness of the sea. Add this to your daily skin routine and see the amazing benefits for yourself!
