Since launching in October 2010, The Seaweed Bath Co. has brought happiness to thousands of loyal customers.

The Seaweed Bath Co. is the vision of Adam Grossman, a long-time psoriasis sufferer, who created his seaweed-based cosmetic products to take control of his own irritated skin without the use of prescribed medications or harsh chemicals.

The Seaweed Bath Co. sustainably hand-harvests wild bladderwrack seaweed off the coasts of Maine and Nova Scotia. We combine our bladderwrack with the highest quality natural ingredients from around the world. These ingredients are both known to be moisturizing and pH-balancing. In fact, many of the ingredients used in our seaweed-based products have been used for centuries by Asian, African and European cultures to improve the skin’s health and well-being. 

Our mission at The Seaweed Bath Co. is to improve the quality of life for severely irritated skin sufferers by offering a constantly-expanding line of high-quality, affordable, all-natural cosmetic products that have soothing, pH-balancing and moisturizing properties.  Additionally, The Seaweed Bath Co. provides opportunities for psoriasis and eczema sufferers to discuss and share information about skin conditions, all-natural products and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

My Description & Thoughts:

I’ve enjoyed having this body wash in my shower. It provides a good clean and has a lovely, zesty, orangey scent. I wish the ingredient list was a bit more recognizable and simplified, but it is ultimately an above average product.

Scent wise, this is a great body wash to keep in a shower for the whole family to use–I believe it would please most.

Argan Shampoo – Lavender Scent

The Seaweed Bath Company’s Description:

“Naturally Strengthen & Volumize Your Hair. Our combination of bladderwrack seaweed with soothing argan oil and gluten-free hydrolyzed barley protein infuses strands with essential nutrients to achieve thicker, fuller, healthier hair.

Pure Ingredients:
AAqua (Water) with Fucus Vesiculosus (Bladderwrack Seaweed) Extract, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe), Sodium Lauryglucoside Hydroxypropylsulfonate (corn & vegetable derived), Decyl Glucoside, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Vegetable Glycerin, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil, Hydrolyzed Barley Protein (gluten-free) Babasuamidopropyl Betaine, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Citric Acid, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Sodium Benzoate (natural version), Lavandula Officinalis (Lavender) Essential Oil, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Potassium Sorbate, Gluconic Acid, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E).”

My Description & Thoughts:

In regards to effectiveness, this shampoo is fantastic. I prefer a shampoo that gives a very thorough clean because my scalp tends to get oily amidst frequent workouts. This product is ideal for me and I’d imagine it would please most active individuals who have similar issues with an oily scalp.

Like with the body wash, I wish this ingredient list boasted more recognizable and organic ingredients. It is an improvement from the typical chemical ridden, drug-store bought shampoo, for sure.

Argan Conditioner – Citrus Scent

The Seaweed Bath Company’s Description:

“Naturally Smooth & Nourish Your Strands. Our combination of bladderwrack seaweed with soothing argan oil and nutrient-rich borage, broccoli seed, and flax seed oils naturally tames and protects your tresses to achieve sleek, shiny, manageable hair.

Pure Ingredients:

Aqua (Water) with Fucus Vesiculosus (Bladderwrack Seaweed) Extract, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Stearylkonium Chloride, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Linum Usitatissimum (Linseed) Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Brassica Oleracea Italica (Broccoli) Seed Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Hydrolyzed Barley Protein (gluten-free), Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Citric Acid, Borago Officinalis (Borage) Seed Oil, Gluconic Acid, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Sodium Benzoate (natural version), Potassium Sorbate, Citrus Sinensis (Orange) Essential Oil, Zingiber Officinalis (Ginger) Essential Oil.”

My Description & Thoughts:

I am always on a constant search for a good conditioner because my hair is so long and tends to tangle easily. This conditioner is very effective in detangling my long hair and leaving it with a healthy sheen.

I feel similarly to the body wash and shampoo in regards to ingredients–would love to see more organic ingredients here.

I would recommend these product to someone looking to take a step up from their current shampoo that doesn’t contain any natural ingredients. Though this line isn’t tops, it contains some nourishing ingredients that are a step in the right direction in establishing a routine with organic products.
