The Power of Seaweed

Adam Grossman used to jump in the ocean to alleviate the discomfort of psoriasis. His skin always felt better after a salt-water soak, and the relief he found in seawater inspired him to learn more about how the ocean's nutrients can help soothe inflamed and irritated skin. Adam zeroed in on seaweed, and his research led him to create a line of all-natural seaweed bath products that are designed to help manage the symptoms of psoriasis and eczema and moisturize dry skin that needs nourishing.

The Seaweed Bath Co. combines seaweed from the nutrient-rich waters surrounding Nova Scotia and Ireland with natural ingredients such as kukui oil, vitamin E, aloe vera and Dead Sea salt. The seaweed comes in different forms. For the Ocean Fresh Whole Seaweed Detox Bath, brown seaweed is harvested by hand and enclosed in mesh (it’s like a tea bag for your bath). Powdered bladderwrack seaweed is combined with healing oils for the Wildly Natural Seaweed Powder Baths, and the Wildly Natural Seaweed Soothing Body Washes mix seaweed extract with kukui and neem oils.

For psoriasis and eczema sufferers, Adam’s products are formulated to help manage the discomfort of itching, flaking and scaling skin. For anyone with dry skin, the naturally soothing ocean ingredients are a great way to moisturize your skin. If you’ve ever wanted to bring a bit of the ocean into your home, the Seaweed Bath Co. makes it easy to simulate a therapeutic salt-water soak, right in your own bath.

Grommet Launch Conversation

    Hi Daily Grommet fans. When I took a long hard look at the possibility of using pharmaceutical solutions for the rest of my life to ease my psoriasis symptoms, I was compelled to find a better, healthier solution. After researching and testing out all sorts of natural remedies, I discovered the healing properties of the ocean and its natural restorative effect on my skin. This led me to bladderwrack seaweed sustainably harvested from the North Atlantic Ocean, which we use in all of our products. You don't have to be a psoriasis or eczema sufferer to benefit from the nourishment of The Seaweed Bath Co. products. All of our products are great for dry skin, anti-aging and cellulite. I am here to answer your questions.

    @Adam Grossman: Ichthyosis certainly has all those symptoms, but I had hoped that someone with that condition might have already tried it.

    It sounds like a great product! I have Seborhea which is kind of like psoriasis on your scalp. Would it work on my scalp - do you have a shampoo?

    @Cindy Wilson: Hi Cindy! We are extremely proud of our products. Our powder baths and Ocean Fresh Detox Bath are a great way to soothe your entire body, including your scalp. When you are in the tub, we recommend soaking your hair in the water.

    Is there any fragrance? Do you smell like seaweed when you are done? Scent would be important factor before I order. I really want to try this product. Thank you!

    @Kelly: Hi Kelly. Our body creams, body washes and powder baths come in a variety of scents as well as in unscented. The unscented has virtually no smell, although some of our customers say they can smell a slight hint of the ocean. The Whole Seaweed Detox Bath does smell like seaweed.

    @Kelly: You should not smell like seaweed after using our products. The lavender and eucalyptus and peppermint scents contain all-natural essential oils that may give your skin a slight scent after use.

    what is the difference between the detox bath and powder?

    Hi Lisa,

    The Ocean Fresh Whole Seaweed Detox Bath is pure bladderwrack seaweed in a netting. Like a bath tea!

    Our Wildly Natural Seaweed Powder Baths contain our powderized bladderwrack seaweed combined with Kukui Oil, Dead Sea Salt, essential oils, aloe vera and vitamin e.

    If you want a traditional, raw seaweed bath experience, than the Detox Bath is the way to go. If you prefer the scent of Eucalyptus and Peppermint instead, the powder baths are the way to go.

    I know you use natural ingredients and extracts. Are they safe to use with children as directed? My 4-yr old has eczema and I worry about using the steroid creams prescribed for his little growing body. ( He weighs 36 lbs.)

    @Ann: Our products are safe to use with children as directed. I recommend the body wash and body cream initially to quell his itchy skin.

    I have also tried everything for psoriasis. Nothing has helped so far. I would love to try your products. How long did it take you to see a difference in your psoriasis?

    @Deb: Our customers usually find soothing relief within a week or two of using our products. I would recommend our bath products if you are going to start with one item.

    I do not see a way to choose unscented when I select the item that I wish--maybe that is further into checkout. Can you clarify how to do it? I am very interested in you products but I prefer to get non scented at this point.

    @Julie: Thank you for your interest. On far right, next to the video clip,, under the Price Range, click the down-arrow next to OPTIONS. Select the item you want, and another option SCENT displays. Click "Unscented". 3 of the products have Unscented options.

    These sound amazing! I find the ocean to be soothing to my skin and my spirit and would love to try some of your products. Do you have any without Aloe Vera? My skin is allergic to it and it would negate all of the benefits of the seaweed.

    Thank you!

    @ A Brown: Our Seaweed Detox Bath does not contain aloe vera. The only ingredient is pure sustainably-harvested bladderwrack seaweed. Thanks for trying it.
