Research & Development

All of my products are handmade with simple, natural ingredients and inspired by the powerful healing properties of the sea and seaweed.

Here’s how I started developing my seaweed skincare products

My PhD research was concerned with making a synthetic copy of a protein found in seaweed. This protein was an enzyme that could grab useful minerals from the sea. Seaweed is clever stuff.

While researching for this and reading other current studies on seaweed including how it may be used in carbon fixing and nutrition I discovered the incredible cosmetic benefits that seaweed has within its little cells. It is my goal to capture the healing properties of the sea for you to enjoy at home.

I have been testing methods for extracting the most beneficial lipids (fatty acids) from seaweeds and this is what I will be using in some of the future handmade skincare products.
