Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest!
Explore our natural skincare products and food supplements using unique, certified organic seaweed from Iceland (Ascophyllum nodosum, known as knotted wrack).
Why unique? Because our wild seaweed comes from the Westfjords of Iceland, known for having the purest waters in the world. Few people live on its coasts. As well as being pure, its waters also receive a constant supply of valuable minerals from geothermal sources. As these waters are cold all year round, the seaweed grows very slowly and is therefore enriched with minerals, vitamins, amino acids and trace elements – more so than anywhere else in the world.
Ascocell™ seaweed is carefully harvested using special machinery with paddle wheels. The seaweed can only be trimmed above its regeneration zone every four years. This seaweed is washed in natural geothermal sources and gently dried using geothermal energy. The brown seaweed is then carefully ground. Once opened up, our seaweed is ready to give you all of the energy it has to offer.
It all began 15 years ago. We have visited during the harvest many times, meeting the wonderful locals and discovering their sustainable processing methods. Icelanders have been using the seaweed for skin care and as a food supplement for centuries. This gave us the idea of tapping this natural jewel and making it available to you – without any additives, aromatic agents or preservatives. It is PURE seaweed or nothing as far as we are concerned!
Our philosophy is one of fairness, sustainability and happy skin for our customers!
It’s great to have you with us.
