Filed Under: Psoothe that psoriasis.
Overview: Body wash and other fine bath products designed to help relieve the discomforting effects of psoriasis and eczema naturally, without synthetic medications and chemicals. The special ingredient in cosmetics by The Seaweed Bath Co. is seaweed, which is abundant in skin-healing amino acids and readily absorbed by the skin, together with other skin-friendly nutrients and oils. Seaweed has been used for its healing properties for hundreds of years among traditional cultures in Europe, Asia, and Africa, and The Seaweed Bath Co. has been introducing North America to the seaweed secret since 2010. Seaweed; skin; think about it: there's a good reason you never see itchy fish
Appreciate: The empathy. The Seaweed Bath Co. is committed to making excellent products to help soothe dry, itching, flaking skin because its founder, Adam Grossman, himself suffers from psoriasis. Like eczema, psoriasis is a skin disease for which there's no cure, but for which hundreds of topical ointments and pharmaceuticals are marketed as being able to relieve. Grossman became concerned that the chemicals in these products were doing more harm to him than good, and so he sought a more natural alternative. He found personal relief soaking in seawater, and founded The Seaweed Bath Co. to help share the healing properties he'd experienced with folks just like him, but who can't take daily soaks in the sea. Which is a fair amount of folks, we'd wager
Know: The seaweed used in The Seaweed Bath Co.'s products are hand-harvested "brown seaweeds" sourced in the waters of Nova Scotia and Ireland. The seaweed is rich in elements that are appreciated by dry, unhealthy skin, including essential and non-essential amino acids, oils, iodine and other trace minerals. Together, these reduce dry, itchy and flaking skin by moisturizing, reducing acidity levels, and increasing alkaline pH levels. Other Seaweed Bath Co. ingredients are also all-natural, and (depending on the product) include Hawaiian kukui oil, Dead Sea salt, and vitamin E
Special Comments: Shown above is the Wildly Natural Seaweed Body Wash, unscented (it's also available in scents like lavender, citrus, and peppermint). The Body Wash will keep you clean while helping soothe the irritated parts of your skin. Many psoriasis sufferers are affected on the scalp, and if that's the itch you need to scratch, consider The Seaweed Bath Co.'s Argan Shampoo's and Conditioners. And, of course, for the full "soak in the sea" treatment in your own bathtub, try their Wildly Natural Seaweed Powder Baths or Ocean-Fresh Whole Seaweed Detox Bath, both of which you combine in warm water to create a true spa-like and healing experience
Cost: The Body Wash is $18.89 for a 12 oz bottle and $5.89 for a travel-size 4 oz; Wildly Natural Seaweed Powder Baths are $14.89 for 2 oz, which should provide enough for 2-4 soaks
