The sea is a source of beauty for your skin. In the early 20th century scientists discovered a clear similarity between our
blood plasma and sea water, in their respective compositions and concentrations, and it is known that our body requires
trace elements, Vitamins and Minerals which are vital for our health and well being.|
All of the aforementioned can be found in marine Algae, which are the main active ingredients in Rí Na Mara skin and body care range. The greatest diversity of seaweed in Ireland is found on the West coast and the Aran Islands. Rí Na Mara insist sustainable harvesting techniques are practised which consist of cutting only the upper section of seaweed species and leaving lower intact to regenerate quickly.
Ri Na Mara Skincare Products are made with up to 7% seaweed extract - other seaweed products have up to 1% - so the difference is significant in cosmetic terms. Seaweed extract penetrates below the epidermis and gets into the blood stream in minutes. Apart from that the parfum is very light and the texture is luxurious.
The Monks of ST. Columbus ate and cooked with seaweed in the ninth century and offered it as a gift to visitors.
The famous Pirate Queen " Grace O'Malley " from the West of Ireland would bathe in seaweed following her many successful battles at sea. Seaweed has been part of Irish legend for hundreds of years, renowned for its life-enhancing benefits that make us all look and feel better.
