This beautiful brown marine algae has so many wonderful properties! Undaria pinnatifida has been farmed in Japan since the Nara Period AD 710-794 and prized for its distinct strong flavor with just a hint of sweetness. The sea vegetable known as wakame contains a compound known as fucoxanthin which studies have shown can help burn fatty tissue. Wakame’s high calcium and iodine content make it popular for nursing mothers. It is also chock full of iron, potassium, and essential B vitamins, and is a rich source of omega-3. In fact, it has one of the higher nutrient-to-energy ratios for omega-3 and is one of the very best vegetarian sources for this metabolism normalizing fatty acid.
You make it sound so delicious, I almost want to eat it!
Well…YAO Beauty brings this nourishment to you in OSEA’s Undaria Algae Oil. In this form your skin will drink in the benefits immediately! OSEA hand harvests the Undaria algae from the pristine waters of Patagonia at the confluence of the Brazil and Antarctic Circumpolar currents. By avoiding the use of polluting diesel ships these waters stay clean and produce the world’s most bioavailable, mineral-rich and nutrient dense marine algae. Harmony with the Earth is so important to us here at YAO and it is our supreme pleasure to bring OSEA products to you!
OSEA soaks the USDA Certified Organic algae in barrels of botanical oils for six months to naturally distill all those healing vitamins, minerals and nutrients into their most potent, purest forms. In addition Undaria algae contains fucoidan-a particularly hydrating compound, and we know especially here in Colorado that hydration can be hard to come by. This glorious algae protects your collagen and prevents the breakdown of hyaluronic acid in the body-necessary to keep skin smooth and firm. Acai, babassu, and passion fruit oils carry all that goodness while bringing their own anti-oxidant magic. Undaria Algae Oil gives your skin the moisture it craves while subtle aromatic citrus and cypress notes transport your senses.
Smooth onto moist skin straight from the shower or bath and this luxurious yet lightweight oil sinks right in. You can also use it as a treatment for dry, itchy, flakey scalp, to keep stretch marks at bay, and to keep tattoos bright and bold, as you can see on the arms of our very own Sherry! She’s says it’s one of her favorite products in the YAO Marketplace and a daily necessity.
