Sustainable Seaweed Extracts - but they're not Scottish!

Posted by Kirsty Morrison on

Based on the Idyllic Pristine West Coast of Scotland, you might expect us to use local seaweed extracts in our products.

However there are few reasons why at Zing Organics we use non indigenous seaweed extracts in our Eco Marine Algae Facial Cleansing Masque.

Just because you use seaweed in a skincare product doesn't mean it necessarily offers any particular skincare benefits. We wanted to use an extract with significant PROVEN collagen boosting function. Developing a ingredient like this is a specialist field which is highly regulated, and way beyond the capabilities and the budget of a small artisan skincare brand. That's why we decided to source a wonderful extract of Italy sustainably grown, purity tested, and skill fully extracted to deliver breathtaking lab proven anti ageing function. This Cylindrotheca Fusiformis extract does the job in terms of tackling wrinkles and enhancing plump, and is also very healing, but does not actually have a particular seaweed aroma. So for the product that we wanted to smell like the sea we turned to Oshadi - a brand we trust from whom we source a heavenly Bladderwrack Absolute of France. This imparts an aroma to evoke the salty mossy smell of a walk on a pristine deserted Atlantic Beach. It's also sustainably sourced and purity tested just like the active Cylindrotheca Fusiformis extract discussed above.

Our Eco Marine Algae Facial Cleansing Masque is a melt style balm cleanser which cleanses the skin gently whilst ensuring the protective acid mantle of the skin is not compromised. It works in harmony with the natural sebum of the skin leaving it soft, nourished and protected. As an anhydrous (water free) product it goes very far and we've had it lab approved like our other Organic Skincare Products to have a long shelf life without the need for drying or irritating preservatives. 

Have you tried our Eco Marine Algae Facial Cleansing Masque in Seaweed, Lavender and Scottish Highland Pine yet?

The active Cylindrotheca Fusiformis collagen boosting extract is also part of the formulation in our Beautific Calm Organic Facial Serum in Calming and Healing Blue Chamomile with Green Mandarin, our Pyjama Pyjama Night Repair Organic Facial Serum in Sandalwood, Palmarosa and May Chang and our Budding Beauty Facial Serum in Restorative Hemp (Cannabis Flower), Bergamot and Rose Geranium..
