Today we are spotlighting an ingredient known for its anti-aging capabilities:  palmaria palmata.  This plant grows in the Atlantic ocean as well as the northwest Pacific ocean and is often dubbed the ‘red seaweed.’  This botanical actually thrives on the rocks amidst the water.  Its scientific name is “Dulse” (pronounced dullis).

Internal health benefits:

Seaweed is often known for being mineral rich and providing different antioxidants.  It is many times consumed as a healthy snack or topping on prepared foods.  There are a broad range of health benefits from consuming palmaria palmata such as:  improving blood circulation, acting as a digestive aid, boosting your immune system, and lowering blood pressure.

Skincare benefits:

You may be wondering what benefits there are for your skin when it comes to this sea plant.  Just like there are many health benefits for the internal body, palmaria palmata helps turn back the clock on your skin in many ways.  First, it helps to improve blood and lymph circulation to promote brighter skin.  Second, it provides antioxidant support to neutralize damaging free radicals.  Third, palmaria palmata contains a seawater which helps to detoxify and cleanse the skin.  Last but certainly not the least, it contains amino acids and vitamins that help promote collagen production.

The best part about this skincare ingredient is that it contains so many different minerals and vitamins that feed the growth of healthy skin overall.  Not only is it beneficial for anti-aging purposes, but it also aids in the health of your skin.  We love botanicals that feed your internal and external health! Check out this fantastic ingredient in our X-Cell+ brightening serum.
