Eggwrack seaweed benefits of skin

Egg wrack is a large, common cold-water seaweed, that is the only species in the genus Ascophyllum and grows solely in the Northern Atlantic Ocean. It has long been used as an organic and mainstream fertiliser for many varieties of crops due to its combination of both macronutrients and micronutrients. Studies have also shown the seaweed contains betaines, mannitol, organic acids, polysaccharides and amino acids which have been proven to benefit the skin. These bioactive components assist in free radical scavenging for anti-oxidation effects, keep the skin hydrated, with the minerals in this brown kelp being found to stimulate elastin and collagen production.
