4 Interesting Ingredients in our Skincare

 

 

Tricia talks ingredients.

"OSEA is the product line we use for our facials.

It is Vegan & Nontoxic & boasts potent ingredients such as  Seaweed.

Seaweed is the main ingredient in OSEA products. With powerful results due to the high amounts of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fatty acids, seaweed absorbs easily into the skin.


But let’s take a look at some other ingredients OSEA uses in their products:

1. Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline   

Otherwise known as DPHP. This plant based amino acid compound brightens, evens skin tone, balances hormones, and visibly reduces hyperpigmentation (the darker spots that naturally occur with sun exposure).

In addition, it is also a great moisturizer. DPHP is found in products such as the Ocean Cleansing Milk and the Advanced Protection Cream.

The Advanced Protection Cream works as a nighttime anti-aging remedy. You can use this on the face, eye area, and even on your hands.

 

2. Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a potent ingredient. For example, it can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, making it super hydrating. Suspended in a gel, hyaluronic acid feels like you’ve applied rejuvenating aloe. 

As a result, the first time you use it, it will seem like a cure-all.

For instance, hyaluronic acid is especially great for mature skin types with a deep loss in moisture. If your skin is very sensitive, mixing this serum with our Gigartina gel soothes the skin during a facial. At home, use with a mist and a moisturizer.

Try the Hyaluronic Sea Serum works for all skin types. However, remember to layer it with a moisturizer or skin mist to help the acid penetrate deeper into the skin.

3. Vitamin “Sea”—Vitamin C

Vitamin C isn’t just for preventing a cold. It stimulates fibroblasts in your skin which produce collagen. As a result, it helps keep skin looking young. Vitamin C also helps fight free radicals and damage caused by sun exposure. In other words, putting it on your skin is just as important as eating it!

Try the Vitamin Sea Serum. It is not only rich in vitamin C, but also contains powerful ingredients such as undaria, vitamin E, ferulic acid (this helps improve the effectiveness of the vitamin C), and turmeric. Therefore, this product helps smooth fine lines, repairs elasticity, brightens, and protects against environmental pollution.

 

4. Pumpkin and Pineapple Enzymesboth of these ingredients are great for a deep exfoliation on the skin, which promotes the regeneration process of new, healthy skin cells, while manually removing dead skin on the surface.


These enzymes instantly brighten complexions and reduce the appearance of fine lines. These ingredients are seen in the Black Algae Flash Mask, which is great for hyperpigmentation, dry, oily, and mature skin. Ask about our non-chemical plant peel.

OSEA uses many other great ingredients that are paraben free, biodegradable, and cruelty-free such as

turmeric,

matsutake mushroom,

and bearberry leaf.
