What is it? Irish Moss (Carrageen or Rock Moss as it's known in Ireland) belongs to the Red Algae family. It's commercial importance is due to its use as a natural thickening agent & emulsifier in food & personal care products. Irish Moss grows submerged in & around the rocks in the unpolluted coastal waters of Ireland & the shores of the North Atlantic. Irish moss also varies in colour from reddish-brown to purplish-green.
What's in it for you? Irish Moss is a naturally hydrating topical skin & hair food composed of a variety of nutrients like: Chlorophyll - a brilliant source of Vitamin K used in cosmetics to fade uneven, blotchy skin tones & discoloration.
Carotene - which converts into vitamin A, traps active oxygen molecules and prevents free radical damage.
Potassium - adds moisture and prevents dry skin
Sodium - nutrient rich skin & scalp tonic, exfoliator and detoxifier.
Calcium - controls the thickness of the epidermis and regulates tissue cell division.
Manganese - without manganese you would have skin problems, premature greying and stunted nail and hair growth.
Sulphur - a natural component of various foods such as fresh fruits, vegetables, dried beans, milk, eggs, tea, coffee, garlic, dried horsetail herb, chocolate, seafood, meat (approximately 2% sulphur), amino acids (L-methionine, L-cysteine, L-cystine & taurine), wheat germ & whole grains. Purported to promote hair growth & cell tissue regeneration. Necessary for the production of collagen and keratin - required protein for the health and maintenance of skin, nails and hair.
As well as iron, iodine, copper, vitamins and protein. Irish Moss does not have roots therefore water and nutrients are transported directly through the cell walls.
