Arame-zeewier (Eisenia arborea)
Arame is a type of seaweed that is naturally rich in vitamins and minerals, including calcium, copper, magnesium, iron, zinc and iodine. These are highly beneficial to the skin and hair, making seaweed prized for its ability to cleanse, tone, soften and calm the skin.
The arame that we use is harvested from the coastline of Japan. It is traditionally gathered by women, known as 'Ama', who dive up to 20m without breathing equipment to collect the arame from the seabed - particularly impressive given that they have an average age of 70 years old.
