Seaweed is the new buzzword in the health and wellness industry right now with more skincare products coming to the market every day.
It can be grown all year round in any marine environment, any geographical location, any temperature and depth of water. Seaweeds need no chemicals, fertilisers or pesticides, they require no deforestation or freshwater to grow.
They don’t deplete their own environment of minerals - as over-intensive farming on the soil does Seaweed is rich in antioxidants, amino acids and soothing agents, all of which provide a host of skincare benefits including purifying blocked pores, boosting radiance and protecting from environmental aggressors.
Mark and Kira Walton started out with a Bath house in Strandhill, Co Sligo, offering steamy tubs of sustainably hand- harvested, wild Atlantic Seaweed. They began experimenting with ingredients, hoping to expand Voya into a full-blown, seaweed-infused skincare range.
They believe organic products can now mean “better functionality, better fragrance and better for you and the environment.”
Apart from its ultra-hydrating qualities, seaweed boasts anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits. It's also packed with amino acids, vitamins and minerals, and its anti-bacterial properties make it an ideal ingredient for fighting everything from acne to signs of ageing.
Voya's selection of the best seaweed skincare, beachy body boosters and indulgent marine lotions for luminous summer skin all year round.
One of my personal favourite body products is, VOYA's Effervescence Sugar Scrub which exfoliates with sugar particles, whilst simultaneously nourishing the skin with a natural blend of seaweed oils, almond oil and sunflower seed oil. Organic formulation works to transform tired, rough and dull looking skin with a floral fragrant blend of lavender and rosemary to leave the mind serene, balanced and relaxed. It will leave your limbs brightened and flake-free.
Hyaluronic acid is a molecule found naturally in our own bodies, lubricating our joints, nerves, eyes, skin and hair. As we get older our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid which is one of the reasons our skin starts to wrinkle and sag. Hydra Veil face mask is formulated using the most natural ingredients including natural Hyaluronic Acid. Moisture locking, refreshing and repairing, this treatment will leave your skin feeling hydrated, plumped and nourished. The algae-based formula contains a powerful blend of Phytofuse Renew™ and Sea Buckthorn to restore, while extracts of Jojoba and Squalene hydrate and plump the skin.
To help soothe and reduce redness, eczema or psoriasis, use a seaweed scrub or exfoliator, which are also usually mild enough for sensitive skin types
LUMINOSITY – VOYA's award-winning new enzyme facial exfoliator uses pineapple acids and white willow herb which are natural forms of salicylic acid. This Soil Association certified organic product is very active so it is not unusual to feel warmth and a small bit of erythema/redness while using it. This is completely normal and fantastic for removing dead skin cells and leaving the skin silky soft and perfectly primed prior to using your facial serum and moisturiser.
