What is Repechage Skin Care?

image1The Many Skin Benefits of Seaweed

Forerunners in sea plant technologies and pioneers in seaweed treatments and cosmetics in the US, Repechage has created a full range of nutrient-rich seaweed-based skincare products featured at top spas globally. Repechage researchers seek out specific seaweeds beneficial for a range of skin conditions and therapeutic needs. The rich blend of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids and anti-oxidants in seaweed makes it the ideal main ingredient for detoxifying, oxygenating, re-balancing, hydrating, anti-aging, and renewing benefits. Our seaweed is harvested from the pure seawaters off the Brittany Coast of France and processed in the USA by our proprietary method to deliver all the nutritive benefits from the sea to the skin.

Where Science Meets Skin Care

At Repêchage, we are always conducting ongoing research for new applications of our seaweed as well as investigating the newest ingredients to help address problems relating to the skin. It is for this reason that we have asked Professor Charles Yarish, Ph.D., professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Connecticut in Stanford, CT to join us as a member of the Repêchage Board of Directors. Below, Dr. Yarish provides interesting insights into the many important applications of seaweed in skin care.

“The marine environment contains a source of functional materials, including polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), polysaccharides, essential minerals and vitamins, antioxidants, enzymes, and bioactive peptides. Marine collagen exhibits antioxidant properties that have been used in skin care products to prevent and even repair the damage caused by environmental factors, such as UV rays and low humidity.” Se-Kwon Kim, Ph.D., Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology
