One of the key active  ingredients in Bonne Foi is seaweed extract. Most of us who grew up in Western Cultures think of seaweed as a nuisance which affects our enjoyment of the beach. It drifts up to shore and wraps around our legs while we try to play in the waves.

For centuries most medical practitioners in the Asian cultures have known seaweed is an organic source of vitamins, minerals, omega-3 and omega-6 and anti-oxidants. Gradually, over time, more and more medical professionals have begun to accept the fact that seaweed and seaweed extracts have a place in our overall health regimens. It wasn’t until in the past two decades however, that scientists discovered the bioactive ingredient in seaweed called FUCOIDAN has powerful anti-aging effect.

It appears that Fucoidan not only has the ability to strengthen the immune systems, it also helps to regenerate cells. Seaweed extracts absorb water and act as hydrating agents. They also work to increase overall firmness in our skin. Today, many top spas are using skin care products rich in seaweed extracts to promote healthier skin for their clientele, either in their facial, mask or therapeutic skin treatment.

Beside seaweed extracts providing a hydrating and firming effect, it also has anti-inflammatory properties that can have a positive effect on wrinkles. Products which contain natural seaweed extract’s rich in antioxidants can  help to rebuild healthy skin without the skin peeling, burning or other painful  side affects caused by harsh chemicals such as Retin A.

In Bonne Foi Beauty Products, the Day Serum and Night Serum both contain this powerful anti-aging ingredient found in highly concentrated seaweed extract.
