OCEANIUM was recently featured in Cosmetic & Toiletries magazine. Blue beauty continues to sweep the industry, highlighting the shift towards consumers seeking effective, clean-label ingredients from natural, marine sources for skincare.

“Blue beauty can continue to be a key driver of this market shift that brings together holistic beauty, efficacy and sustainability.” – Karen Scofield Seal, OCEANIUM Co-founder & CEO

Seaweed is a remarkably regenerative, resilient, and nutrient-rich marine algae which has evolved protective and restorative mechanisms to survive against the harsh ocean environment.

Elle Magazine’s recent article – ‘This Is How to Use Seaweed in Your Skin Care Routine’ explores the versatility of seaweed, revealing its specific benefits – from firming and brightening to moisturising and soothing, seaweed and seaweed extracts are hero ingredients for sensitive, acne-prone skin, and rosacea with proven powerful anti-redness properties.

“In skincare, seaweed and algae is quickly becoming a sought-after ingredient…Seaweed is full of minerals, salts, amino acids, and lipids. Because of this, seaweed is a great resource for nutrient-poor skin.” – Elle Magazine
