It was a typical Saturday at Whole Foods. As I was headed to fill up my water bottles, I was distracted by the unbelievable aroma coming from the Seaweed Bath Company’s sample table. A double take turned into a highly intriguing conversation with owner Adam Grossman and his wife about the story behind the company and the great healing properties in seaweed bath products.
Long story short: Adam is a long-time psoriasis sufferer who spent thousands of dollars on ointments and medicines, tried numerous “miracle” treatments, and met with a slew of psoriasis specialist, only to find out that nothing was working. He did notice one interesting avenue for improvement, though: the ocean. Observing the impossibility of hanging out in the sea on a daily basis, Adam brought the healing properties of this natural h2O into a line of healing products. He couldn’t help but share the hope these creations brought, and that is how The Seaweed Bath Co. was born!
I am not a psoriasis sufferer, but I am absolutely smitten with these wildly natural products. I have a few favorites that I must share with you! First up: the seaweed body wash. This has become a shower staple. The best part? I know I am lathering my skin with nourishing oils, and the lavender smell makes my mind escape to my favorite spa.
Obsession #2: the shampoo (eucalyptus scent). Caution: you may experience that perfect bouncy voluminous shine that we thought was only possible in hair commercials (okay, maybe I am being a tad dramatic, but the outcome is pretty darn close!). I would like to rename this as the magical-mane potion because it truly does wonders on your hair! There is something about the seaweed extract + Moroccan Oil + Vitamin E oil combo that gives your locks that fresh clean feeling while giving it body; now that’s hard to come by! Major bonus: my blonde stays vibrant.
Last but certainly not least: I heart the body cream. This amazing-ness in a bottle is a non-negoticable. I admit, I am quite the lotion snob, and this product seriously out-measures my tip top (kind of unfair) standards for body cream. It is super moisturizing, smells so soothing, and contains some of the best natural oils for your skin.
