At ishga, we use four types of seaweed in our organic skincare; Fucus Serratus, Fucus Vesculosis, Pelvetia Canaliculata, and Ascophyllum Nodosum. The two types that go into the majority of our products are Fucus Serratus and Fucus Vesculosis, both of which hold powerful benefits for our skin.
We may think of beauty and skincare as a fairly modern development that has only happened in the last 100 years or so. However, if you go far enough back, you can see that caring for our skin has been around for a long time.
Our skin is unique, but skin types are classified into four main groups; normal, dry, combination and oily.
Skin type is based on the amount of sebum (oil) your skin produces. The level of sebum production can change over time and can be affected by factors such as genetics, hormones, lifestyle, diet and stress.
Taking the time to learn what skin type you have can help you choose the right products to reap maximum results, leaving you with healthy, glowing skin! There are ways you can determine what your skin type is, all from the comfort of your own home.
