There’s a new buzzword floating around the skincare community: skin resilience. This new, gentle skincare routine consists of protective, soothing, and strengthening ingredients. The ingredients work together to support the skin barrier and more efficiently repair skin damage.
When we think of the word resilience, one ingredient that comes to mind: Irish Sea Moss. This versatile plant survives in the harsh, salty conditions of the deep ocean. It’s become a popular skincare ingredient due to its high antioxidant levels and anti-inflammatory properties.
Benefits of Irish Sea Moss
Irish Sea Moss is an algae that grows on the shore of Ireland in the Atlantic Ocean. Since it is found in the deep ocean, it is exposed to difficult environmental conditions and must adapt to thrive. Because of its enduring nature, Irish Sea Moss contains some of the best compounds to protect, hydrate, and strengthen our skin. Here are its top benefits:
● Helps to reduce inflammation due to its sulphur and zinc content
● Hydrates and binds moisture into the skin with polysaccharides
● Creates a protective barrier on the skin to keep hydration in, prevent trans-epidermal water loss, and protect against environmental aggressors
● The sulphur found in Irish Sea Moss helps to regulate oil production and prevent excess oiliness in combination/oily skin types
● Although it creates a barrier on the skin, Irish Sea Moss is non-comedogenic and will not clog pores
● Antibacterial properties help to balance the skin’s microbiome
Irish Sea Moss is rich in vitamins and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, Vitamin A, and Vitamin K – all contributing to a healthy complexion.
