Growing in the nutrient rich ocean waters, abundant in vitamins, peptides, amino acids, omega-3 and antioxidants, macro-algae like Caulerpa Lentillifera, aka sea grapes or green caviar, are vital for healthy skin.
Sea grapes are delicate transparent green round bubble clusters, sometimes called the jewel of the sea, which hold a small amount of liquid that taste like the ocean.
How are Sea Grapes beneficial for the skin?
‘Fucoidan’ is a compound found in Sea Grapes.
Among the many different types of seaweed, sea grapes are especially rich in fucoidan. Growing in the harsh environment of strong water currents and the exposure of the atmosphere at low tide, can cause damage to the outer layers of the delicate sea grapes. The compound found in sea grapes, fucoidan, promotes the healing function and proliferation of fibroblast cells. Fibroblast cells produce collagen and play a critical role in wound healing. Fucoidan is a vital protective compound for sea grapes.
Sea grapes with fucoidan provides multiple benefits for the skin. It promotes skin renewal and collagen production, strengthens the skin barrier while providing protection from the environment, retains more moisture, and brightens the skin.
