Natural skin tightening facial mask

Have you thought about a peeling facial treatment but the downtime with flaking skin puts you off? Regular use of the Sea me mask will give you similar results over time without the flaking. We’ve added masses of chlorella (an algae) in the recipe which tightens skin, improves production of collagen, stimulates cells to produce at a faster rate and acts as a skin healer (goodbye acne). Apply a thick layer to your face, neck and décolleté, wash of after 20 minutes for instant radiant results. Chlorella also improves overall skin tone and helps to diminish the signs of aging. I always also add Sea me mask to my head for a scalp massage (best hair day ever) A tip is if you wake up with puffy under eyes, apply a thick dollop of Sea me mask as an under eye mask. Gently remove after 20 minutes with a wet cloth. Et voila, reduces puffiness significantly 👍

Holistic approach to beauty and wellness


Those who know me, know that I’m a big believer in a holistic approach to overall beauty and wellness. What we eat, how we move, what we apply to our skin and what we think is all connected. We have all probably heard about the fantastic benefits of meditation. I’ve tried doing it on my own, apps and websites with guided meditations. I stick with it for a few days but then... Now I’ve found something that works for me that I wanted to share. It still took discipline the first week, but now it’s a habit. YouTube 👍
I like the @thehonestguys for meditation and Suzanne Grace for breathing exercises and clearing your chakras. I have to say, I find myself with a more positive mind. Do you have a favorite meditation method you would like to share?

What happens to your skin when you are sleeping 😴

What happens to your skin when you are sleeping? There is a reason it’s called beauty sleep. When you sleep it gives your skin a chance to restore, repair and recover. There is actually a fair amount of research and science done about the concept of beauty sleep. This is when some of the most significant internal and epidermal revival takes place. When you sleep your body produces collagen which keeps your skin healthy, promotes cell reproduction and minimizes fine lines. Personally I use a silk pillowcase to avoid sleeping marks in my face and it’s also better for your hair. Even if the Algica in our Make my day cream has tested to be UV resistant it’s beneficial to use as a night cream for other reasons. It’s rich in antioxidants and a powerhouse of nutrients. Did you know that your skin absorbs a higher level of nutrients while you sleep ? So go ahead, close your eyes and take that nap 😴 😴 😴

Algae in skincare

Treasures under the surface.
Algae is really hot right now, and with good reason.
It’s the food of the future, in supplements, skincare and even an alternative to fossil fuels. Packed with high levels of calcium, iron, potassium, Vitamin A, C, and K, selenium and magnesium. It’s the future superfood that could feed the entire world. It’s already in dairy and nondairy products, food colorings and spices. We have included it in our Sea me mask, a true Cinderella mask that detoxifies and leaves you with clear, radiant skin. We also have Algica in our Make my day cream. Algica is an algae which is currently being registered in EU as the first future totally natural sunscreen. Algica comes from the sea, so it will not harm sea life. Algae can also be found in numerous supplements. Working wonders with enormous benefits for the whole body. I’m especially grateful for the excellent dental health a specific algae supplement brings. The versatile algae is entering an extremely exciting phase in its history and I believe we will see it in all sorts of products and industry.
I’m telling you… algae is the future.

A new totally natural UV block from algae

In our Make my day we have included Algica 


The algae-based silica material with unique and powerful properties developed by nature.

  • Cleanses the skin by absorption of impurities, sweat and bacteria
  • Efficient carrier material that enables efficient uptake of vitamins and nutrients by the skin
  • Improved moisture retention by its ability to bind water, similar to hyaluronic acid
  • A future natural, non-toxic and environmentally friendly UV filter
  • COSMOS Certified Organic
  • Transparent on the skin
  • Completely odor-free
  • The dry form is long-lasting and does not require preservatives
  • Rheology modifying properties
  • The material also shows promise for anti-pollution (currently testing)
  • It is available as a dry powder and as a water-based cream. The dry material is preferable for oil-based formulations and serums, while the cream is easy to formulate into lotions and face masks

These properties have been tested in scientific studies

More on the properties and origin of the material

The algae’s unique porous shell has evolved for millions of years to ensure survival. The shell is naturally designed for uptake and release of chemical substances such as nutrients, vitamins and minerals. The abundance of hydroxyl groups, comparable to hyaluronic acid, also helps the algae to efficiently regulate moisture and water levels.

Algica solves the two major skin care issues: moisturizing and cleansing. These shell’s natural traits can be utilized in moisturizing creams to boost the delivery of active ingredients such as vitamins and minerals to the skin. The remarkable absorptive properties are valuable in cleansing face masks, for efficient uptake of sweat, bacteria and other impurities from the skin.

Additionally, the material efficiently blocks harmful UV light. This has been confirmed in scientific studies by our team and other scientists, including a publication in the elite journal Nature. We are conducting tests to approve this algae material by the EU as an environmentally friendly UV-filter for use in sunscreen.

Diatom shells originate from the sea and are thereby completely safe for oceans and sea life. It is of great importance today to protect our fragile oceans from harmful and unnatural chemical substances that endanger life in the oceans.
