THALASSOTHERAPY - WHERE TO BEGIN

Screen Shot 2019-02-07 at 4.32.47 PM.png

Thalassotherapy is an ancient therapeutic self-care approach and traditional medicine that utilizes ocean water/sea vegetation, biomimicry/environmental solutions, and marine ingredients to directly affect long-term beauty.


THE SEA WITHIN US


Seaweeds are the vegetation of the ocean, it spends its lifetime floating in the sea soaking up its surroundings. It is a mineral sponge full of slippery polysaccharides that are a gelatin chalked full of iodine (antioxidant), botanical hormones, lipids, natural hyaluronic acid, peptides, fucoidan, fucoxanthin and many other beneficial derivatives. When applied to skin the seaweed/kelps slippery gel facilitates self-regulation of cellular activities that include: recharge mitochondria energy, restore orderly cell death/propagation, manage DNA repair mechanisms and improve protein synthesis. It is both a growth medium and a cleansing agent. This all happens while in the background marine ingredients fortify cellular defense mechanisms (Klotho, NAD+, AMPT) through calorie restriction mimicking. 

Although the practice of Thalassotherapy is ancient, the scientific study of of its efficacy has been a popular subject for centuries. Dr. Richard Russell, whom many consider to be the founder of modern-day Thalassotherapy, validated the efficacy of seawater for health maintenance in the 1700s when he penned A Dissertation Concerning the use of Seawater in Curing Diseases of the Glands. Dr. Rene Quinton later found in the 1800’s that seawater closely mimics our own extra-cellular fluid; our blood serum and amniotic fluid. Current research validates these claims and goes on to further show that marine macro-algae (seaweeds/kelp/algae) offer a potent blend of bio-identical compounds incredible for dermal well-being and cellular rejuvenation. Thalassotherapy treatments assimilate up to 78 minerals and trace elements back into the dermal system to improve mineral in-balances and restore homeostasis.

Simply put, seaweed clears toxins, increases blood flow and improves circulation. This cycle removes inflammation, evens tone and clears anti-aging pathways. A balanced diet of marine nutrients applied to skin it can positively and noticeably affect the look and feel of your exterior.

This is our sea beauty bath that offers a simple beauty solution beyond the face.

After use hang on spigot or in a sunny window to dry. If allowed to dry in-between uses, the bag can be used 5-8 times. If the seaweed smells sour it should be disposed of. SeaTea will only create color and lather on the first use. When you are ready to dispose, dump contents in your compost bin and wash/repurpose bag.
