We’re not entirely sure who it was who first spied a big clump of brown seaweed in the ocean and thought, “Hey, I think I’ll eat some of that” or “Wow, let’s boil this down and make some tea.” We do know, however, that sea kelp (also called just kelp) has been harvested from nutrient-rich, shallow ocean waters for thousands of years, like since the Middle Stone Age. And now here we are, putting it in our soups, salads, teas, supplements, body-care products, and much more.
Sea kelp is a natural source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D, and E, and it also contains important minerals like zinc, iodine, potassium, copper, and calcium. (Actually, with 10 times more calcium than milk, sea kelp is thought to contain the highest natural concentration of calcium of any food.)
Organic sea kelp is one of the beneficial ingredients in the Acure Brightening Facial Scrub that’s in the winter Yuzen box. The sea kelp gently exfoliates your skin so the French green clay and organic lemon peel can remove impurities from your pores. The process stimulates cell growth, which leads to fresher, brighter skin! All of Acure’s products are made with the purest natural and organic ingredients available.
