Our 100% palm oil free, Seagrown branded, kelp infused hand and body moisturising cream was developed in our Yorkshire workshop and is handmade in Malton, Yorkshire from a combination of locally sourced seaweed and premium quality, natural plant oils, each renowned for their skin benefits. These oils include coconut oil and shea butter which form the base of this intense, long lasting, moisturising product.
Unprocessed, dried kelp, harvested by our friends at Seagrown, from the North Yorkshire coast, is infused in aloe vera juice before being added to this uniquely beneficial cream for which we have received an enthusiastic response from both men and women customers.
The key bio-active component, aloin is present in both aloe vera and in even greater concentrations in kelp. Aloin has been cited in several studies as being helpful in regenerating the connective tissues within the skin, improving its structure and appearance and therefore counteracting the signs of ageing. Other compounds present in seaweed act as tyrosinase inhibitors and have hence been shown to have a positive impact on skin pigmentation, including smoothing pigmentation imbalances and lightening age spots. Naturally occurring polysaccharides present in kelp have been demonstrated to retain moisture and act as an outstanding skin moisturiser and humectant, to an even greater extent than the well known skincare ingredient, hyaluronic acid.
We have received a wealth of positive feedback in our trials, from eczema, rosacea and psoriasis patients about the benefits of this cream.
This product contains no added water and hence requires no artificial emulsifiers or surfactants, which are frequently cited in exacerbating skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. Additionally, the absence of water makes this a very long-lasting product; a little goes a very long way. The absence of added water also enables the use of preservatives to be minimised and hence this kelp infused moisturising cream is free from potentially hormone disrupting additives such as parabens, present in the majority of commercially produced skincare preparations.
The gentle, unique fragrance in our moisturising hand and body cream complements the natural, fresh aroma of the kelp and is created from a unique blend of essential oils, made from steam distilled flowers , plants and fruits. No synthetic parfums are added to this long lasting product, which is presented in a fully recyclable aluminium tin.
