March Ingredient Spotlight: Irish Moss

March Ingredient Spotlight: Irish Moss

It’s St. Patrick’s Day and we are celebrating the luck of the Irish…Moss, that is!  According to Pinterest, Irish Moss, also known as Sea Moss, is trending and its pinning popularity is up 380%!  Irish Moss is a trend worth keeping as its benefits to the skin are note-worthy and numerous.  And as a skin care ingredient that can create an instant tightening effect of the skin, it would be an appreciated addition to any skin care line.

Irish Moss is actually not a moss but a species of red algae that grows in the cool Atlantic waters along the rocky coastlines of Europe and North America.  It’s quickly gaining a reputation as the next big superfood right alongside Kale and Camu Camu.  Rich in Vitamins E, A, F and K, it supports strong capillaries and the healing and restoration of tissue.  This can help with dark under eye shadows and can increase skin elasticity.

Potassium Chloride, Calcium, Sulfur and a multitude of trace minerals contribute to clear, healthy skin and have been reported to soothe symptoms of psoriasis and eczema. Sea Moss’s jelly-like extract has a natural moisturizing effect on the skin.  It is also edible making it a powerful superfood that can beautify from the outside in…and the inside out.
