10 seaweed-infused beauty products for the summer

Where else would we rather be than on an exotic beach on a tropical island in the middle of nowhere this summer? If like us, you’re still working away through the sunshine and want to be somewhere else, you need to read our edit of the best seaweed-infused beauty products and transport yourself on holiday. Plus, they’re packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to help protect, nourish and keep the skin glowing and healthy.

Which are the best seaweed-infused skincare and haircare products?

ESPA's Detoxifying Seaweed Bath is a sumptuously luxurious experience when you need a little detox and indulgence. Made with seaweed, it's extremely rich in vitamins and minerals which help to gently cleanse, stimulate and revitalise the skin.

A blend of spirulina and kelp are infused into this shampoo and conditioner duo to gently cleanse, feed the hair and keep the hair super shiny. They're great summer haircare products as they rid the hair of impurities, sea, salt and sand.

Infused with Japanese seaweed, the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask helps to repair the skin's natural barrier function for improved hydration and long-lasting comfort. It also contains avocado and apricto kernel oils to nourish and protect delicate and dehydrated skin.

Infused with red seaweed and Padina Pavonica, the ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Super Serum Elixir is an anti-ageing serum that helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With the addition of hyaluronic acid and camelina oil, it makes the perfect skincare product for summer when skin is thirstier than usual.

Containing a blend of powerful actives, including seaweed, the OSKIA Super 16 Serum is perfect for those worried about skin ageing from photo damage, leaving behind fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. Rich in antioxidants, it also helps to shield your skin against damaging environmental aggressors to keep it protected and glowing.

Crabtree & Evelyn's La Source Foot & Leg Therapy is ideal for those that exercise and need a little relief at the end of a long day. Not only does it intensely nourish thanks to its blend of red sea algae and green seaweed, it helps to cool the legs and offer immediate relief from sore spots when used as a massaging lotion.

For curly and bohemian beach waves this summer, treat yourself to the Leonor Greyl Algues & Fleurs Curl Enhancer Spray. It contains both seaweed and hibiscus extracts to support and condition the hair, and give it incredible bounce and volume.

Chantecaille's Flower Harmonizing Cream contains seaweed, plant botanicals and essential oils to help nourish, protect and hydrate sun-drenched complexions. Microalgae also work to soothe the skin and keep it glowing healthy.

Infused with organic and sustainably harvested Bladderwrack Seaweed, the Seaweed Bath Co. Body Cream helps to nourish your skin from top to toe, and leave it delicately fragranced. It's a perfect post-sunbathing body cream to soothe and condition.

If you feel that your hair is a little limp, fragile and weak, then you need to cleanse your scalp. A build-up of impurities and oil can wreak havoc on the health of your hair, which is why an effective cleanser is essential to keeping it shiny and bouncy. Aveda's Purifying Scalp Cleanser contains seaweed to shield against damage, and salicylic acid to remove dead skin cells and impurities.
