Discover Sea Kelp Benefits and Uses with Dermikelp®
Kelp has been growing at the bottom of our oceans for millions of years, and its many different benefits and uses have gradually been realised during that time.
Sea kelp comes in multiple varieties, and each has its own unique properties; some is edible, some can be taken as part of supplements, and some – like the ecklonia maxima that can be found in Dermikelp® products – can have nourishing benefits for your skin and hair.
Here’s a few ways you can benefit from the natural goodness of sea kelp:
Sea Kelp Supplements
Kelp is naturally packed with so many nutrients that it is often included in health supplements. Just some of the minerals that can be found in kelp are iodine, zinc, magnesium, iron and calcium; in fact, some types of kelp contain almost ten times as much calcium as milk, even though that is typically where we know to get this mineral from.
As a result, sea kelp benefits can be plentiful, with these minerals potentially able to help keep your bones and nails strong, regulate your metabolism and aid your digestion, when taken in the correct amounts.
Ingesting too much of some of these minerals can be dangerous, so it’s important to monitor your intake.
And if it’s benefits for your skin and hair that you’re looking for, you’ll be able to get these from Dermikelp® products instead.
Sea Kelp for Skin and Hair
Dermikelp® skin and haircare products contain a variety of sea kelp called ecklonia maxima, found off the west coast of South Africa. It’s sustainably harvested by hand before being turned into a concentrated liquid form of kelp known as CEM-K – its most nutrient-rich form – using our very own cell-burst extraction process, which helps to keep as much of its goodness locked in as possible.
In this form, sea kelp can be used as part of a skincare routine to cleanse, nourish and soothe the skin, and Dermikelp® products have been deemed to be non-irritant during dermatological testing. These three key stages of an effective skincare routine can all be achieved by using the products in the Dermikelp® Body Essentials Starter Kit.
Sea kelp can also have benefits for the hair, with the Dermikelp® Hair Essentials Starter Kit featuring a kelp-based shampoo and conditioner to provide you with nourished, soft, shiny hair.
