WEALTH OF SEA ALGAE.
Zanzibar is one of the world's largest exporters of sea algae. Beautiful and clean waters of the island, combined with the appropriate temperature, make ideal conditions for growing "green gold". Sea algae used in the cosmetics industry come from the private Seaweed Center crops located in Paje. Cultivated in natural conditions, they ripen for about 6 weeks and then they are manually collected and dried in the Zanzibar sun, which guarantees the highest quality product.
Sea algae are a very valuable raw material used in cosmetics. They are rich in exogenous amino acids, moisturizing nutrients and proteins and help to rebuild collagen, affecting not only the metabolism of the epidermis but also penetrating into the dermis.
Seaweed Center cosmetics based on algae have a cleansing, nourishing and regenerating effect and help to reduce cellulite thus delaying skin aging processes. They are also effective in treating skin problems by detoxifying it and restoring its natural balance.
