The ocean provides us with so many beneficial nutrients, with everything from anti-ageing to hydrating and soothing properties can be found in the plants that grow within, but also from the marine water itself.
Why is seawater so powerful?
We all know that sea water naturally contains a variety of trace elements and minerals, but what makes sea water special is that these trace elements and minerals are remarkably similar in concentration to what is found in our blood plasma. Seawater contains many minerals that our skin needs including magnesium, potassium, calcium, selenium and sodium. Maintaining these mineral levels within our skin is vital to proper cell function and health. Our body can recognize these minerals in sea water easily, so they can be absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin and put to use straight away.
The benefits of Algae-
There are over 28,000 different types of algae, and each has its own unique makeup, however, as a general rule algae contains vitamins A, B, C and D along with a high concentration of copper, iron, magnesium and zinc. Algae can be a powerful anti-aging ingredient due to its multivitamins, which have the ability to stimulate collagen and elastin within the skin.
Caviar and Oysters are no longer just a delicacy-
Caviar has been seen for years as a luxurious delicacy, but it has multiple benefits in skincare. It contains hydrating elements such as the fatty acids omega-3 and omega 6, which play an important role in helping to maintain proper skin barrier function. It also has antioxidant properties to help prevent collagen and elastin breakdown, making it great for anti-ageing.
Oysters are rich in B Vitamins, along with trace elements such as potassium, zinc, calcium and magnesium. Vitamin B helps to strengthen and nourish the skin cells, and can also assist in regulating oil flow.
Why we should harness the benefits of sea shells
Sea shells have a few surprising benefits when it comes to our skin. They are rich in calcium carbonate which can have a detoxifying effect on the skin. It also helps to strengthen tissue and re-mineralize the skin.
Plankton is the new skincare powerhouse.
Plankton is arguably one of the most beneficial marine ingredients to our skin. It contains necessary vitamins and minerals for skin functioning, while also feeding our skin with micro nutrients, amino acids and essential fatty acids. Fatty acids are the building blocks for healthy skin cells, as they train the skin to hold onto water while also being a source of moisture themselves. Plankton is also high in zinc, which has antibacterial properties and is also necessary for the regeneration of skin cells and can promote stronger, healthier skin.
All of these beneficial ingredients come together to form our unique Celumer Marine Extract, which is ingredient technology exclusive to Dalton and can be found in our all anti-ageing products.
