The rocky reefs off the western coast of South Africa are home to another forest – the Kelp Forest. Here, the pristine, icy Benguela current sweeps up from Antarctica. The kelp fronds in this forest are kept in constant motion and are bathed by the tumultuous, nutrient-rich ocean. As a result of the constant movement and abundance of nutrients, the forest grows rapidly – the rubbery cell structure of “Ecklonia maxima” enabling it to thrive in the violent wave action.
The flexibility of this plant is the secret of its success in these stormy waters, and the high level of organic gels (alginates) it contains enable true “go with the flow” strength! It is these gels which make this seemingly unattractive, simple plant of great benefit to us, as they are the perfect medium for transferring vitamins, minerals and enzymes from the plant to the skin.
The harvesting and processing of the kelp follows a strict process that is uniquely South African, and which safeguards the beneficial components. The process, known as “cell burst”, preserves the Vitamins; A, B1, B2, B3, B5, and C. The Minerals: Boron, Cobalt, Copper, Fluoride, Iodine, Iron, Manganese, Molybdenum, and Zinc, the Enzymes, and the Amino Acids.
The African Sea Escape treatment is a powerful one, as it serves to activate the metabolism and stimulate detoxification. It has been known to increase the mobilisation of fat, promote weight loss, combat cellulite and assist in anti-ageing – all due to the anti-inflammatory, soothing and anti-oxidant properties of the kelp. The strength of this treatment can be adjusted by adding Micronised Marine Algae Powder, for enhanced detoxification.
In a nutshell, our African Sea Escape is designed to help with the elimination of toxins from the skin, as well as help iron out the lumps and bumps caused by the scourge of many women – cellulite! Your body will be smoother, and the skin soft and intensely moisturised. Fabulous!
