Body Wrap Ingredient II: The Seaweed Bladderwrack

The ultimate body applicator is made of active and natural ingredients. Previous blog has unleashed the magnificent benefits of green tea extract from the leaf of Camellia sinensis. While it discussed more about the process how the skin protects itself from external hazards and how green tea extract combats these external hazards, today we will feature another ingredient of the body wrap commonly called as the bladderwrack.

What is the Bladderwrack?

In the body wrap package, you can see it with a name Fucus vesiculosus. It is a brown seaweed that was found on the coasts of the North Sea, the western Baltic Sea, and the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. People already used it for medications including thyroid disorders and iodine deficiency. Others used it as topical treatment for skin diseases, burns, insect bites and aging skin.

How it became beneficial in the body wrap?

The bladderwrack can be taken as whole plant. However, because of a state of the art technology, it was infused in the wrap to be more effective and efficient. What makes Fucus vesiculosus or the bladderwrack an important ingredient of the wrap?

  • This type of seaweed contains fucoidan. It is a sulfated polysaccharide that aid in the retention of the collagen (made of protein that make up the skin). It also decreases the thickness of the skin which will normalize a slackening and sagging skin. A study made by Biological Science Laboratories- a Japanese based laboratory center showed that when a gel made with bladderwrack was applied on the check, positive results were gained.
  • Fucoidan possesses a strong anticoagulant property. It has the ability to prevent blood from clotting. Why it is essential? As you all know the oxygen-rich blood carries the nutrients needed by the skin. However, when there are blood clots, it can't pass through the skin cells. It makes the skin sag and slack due to lack of elasticity and undernourishment. But with the bladderwrack in the body wrap, blood clots will be prevented ensuring a stable and regular blood flow.
  • Fucoidan also provides an anti-inflammatory and revitalizing properties that can help suppress inflammation brought by several external hazards. Its revitalizing property allows fast rejuvenation and regeneration of healthy skin cells.
  • The bladderwrack also helps in the skin's efficient local detoxification process. When the skin gets detoxified, the dirt and unwanted elements are eliminated. The skin has its own way of detoxifying itself but brought by age and the level intoxication, the process may be delayed or slower than regular. With the bladderwrack, the process will speed up to ensure fast renewal and remineralization of your skin cells.
The bladderwrack is an active agent of the ultimate body applicator. Along with other ingredients, it makes the body wrap even more effective. It also contains anti-aging properties that will help eliminate the presence of different signs of aging like wrinkles, fine line and cellulite. It can tighten, tone and firm the skin in as little as 45 minutes. It even promotes an active and healthy lifestyle.
