Seaweed Bath Co.
If you’re the kind of person who appreciates a leisurely spa day but just can’t seem to get away, meet Seaweed Bath Co. Not only will a bottle or two of its scrubs and washes not break the bank, but the luxurious ingredients and refreshing scents will make you feel like you’ve been whisked away on a temporary vacation—even if it only lasts the length of your shower. Bladderwrack seaweed is the key ingredient throughout the entire line, which is organic and sustainably harvested in Maine. This particular type of seaweed is known for its vitamin and mineral content and amino acids. It also may help the skin naturally detox and flush out environmental toxins.
The History of Seaweed Bath Co.
When everyone in Allison Grossman’s family struggled with sensitive skin, she went on the hunt for ingredients that wouldn’t cause flare-ups. Seaweed seemed like a potential solution, so she started experimenting with formulas and handing them out to family and friends. It didn’t take long before her quest became a full-time mission to help gently cleanse and nourish skin from head to toe.
Seaweed Bath Co. Company Mission
This brand’s motto is “sea-to-skin personal care” and takes its cue from the ocean to formulate its best-selling products. The brand is committed to using ingredients that calm and soothe irritated or sensitive skin naturally, without any harsh chemicals.
