Alghe Kombu Essiccate (Laminaria digitata)
This vitamin and mineral-rich powder is made from kombu seaweed. It’s a natural anti-inflammatory that helps to soothe, soften, and hydrate dry skin.
Kombu seaweed (also known as kelp) is well known in Asia, where it’s used for nutritious soups. They can be a few metres long and form underwater 'kelp forests' in the oceans. These are recognised as one of the most productive and dynamic ecosystems on Earth.
The seaweed is a rich source of iodine, which helps to boost the skin’s natural repair mechanism and cleanse it deeply. It also contains vitamin B1, which conditions the skin, hair, and nails, and helps to alleviate fatigue.
Lush buy the seaweed flakes from Ireland, where it is hand-harvested by a family business.
