The Beauty and Skincare Benefits of Native Seaweed Tasmanian Kelp

Leitin Skincare proudly incorporates the essence of Native Seaweed Tasmanian Kelp (Durvillea potatorum) into our products. This seaweed extract is a rich source of bioactive compounds such as loliolide, polysaccharides, sugars, and phenolics, which offer extensive skincare benefits.

Tasmanian Kelp extract is known for its powerful antioxidant properties, protecting the skin from oxidative stress and environmental damage. Loliolide, a terpene lactone found in the extract, activates the AKT/PI3K pathway, enhancing the skin's antioxidant response and reducing inflammation. This makes it effective in soothing irritated skin and combating pollution-induced skin damage.

Polysaccharides in the kelp extract form a gel-like structure that significantly improves skin hydration, creating a protective barrier that locks in moisture. They also aid in wound healing by accelerating reepithelization and providing mucoprotective actions, making the extract beneficial for dry and damaged skin.

The phenolic compounds in Tasmanian Kelp offer anti-aging benefits by neutralising free radicals, supporting collagen and elastin synthesis, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, these compounds help in skin cell renewal and protecting against UV-induced damage, promoting a radiant and youthful complexion.
