Incredible Sea Moss Soap Benefits For Your Skin

Sea moss has been celebrated for centuries for its vast nutritional content, value, and benefits. These species of red algae have already proven their impressive effects on human health, digestion, and mental well-being.

Packed with the most essential minerals, vitamins, and acids, Irish sea moss is claimed to be able to help you replenish what’s insufficient in just one shot.

But it is all about taking sea moss internally! In this article, we are eager to show you the value sea moss soap brings to the table, how it stands apart from traditional soaps, and how you can make it in your kitchen!

What is “sea moss soap”?

Soap is not rocket science. If you’ve never had a chance to familiarize yourself with the content of the cleansing bar you’re using every single day — soap usually contains oil, water, and lye (the alkaline solution produced by soaking wood ashes in water). When it comes to sea moss soap, the ingredients are not quite different from the original soap, yet with the sea moss gel included.

How is it different from your classic soap?

If you struggle with constant dry–hands problems, it’s more likely the soap to blame. Most soaps damage your skin with high pH levels and hence are not at all suitable for anything except cleansing your hands.

However, if you are looking for a natural, highly organic, vegan solution beneficial for your face, hair, and body — a bar of soap made of sea moss is just the ticket. Here are some of the key sea moss soap benefits for skin:

  • Whitening & regeneration. Packed with zinc, Irish sea moss might help you remove post-acne scars(1), whiten your under-eye skin, and give your skin’s texture a nice touch of smoothness.
  • Hydration. Sea moss is a source of antioxidants and electrolytes. It might improve your skin hydration(2), resulting in a younger look and a more glowy complexion.
  • Collagen boosting. Being an unmatched source of vitamin C, this seaweed can significantly push collagen produced by your skin(3). Collagen is overly crucial for your skin’s elasticity, youth, and health.
  • Vitamin-A bomb. Sea moss is a host for retinol (aka vitamin A) — a powerful antioxidant, known to be effective against acne, inflammation, wrinkles, and skin early aging(4).

Some of our most crafty clients took a chance to experiment with the sea moss on their skin, and shared the results in the interview with us! If you want to learn more about the powerful seaweed, come take a look.

Can you use sea moss soap on your hair?

Now, for your hair, using high-pH soap might not be the best idea. However, you can go straightforwardly and simply use True Sea Moss gels as a hair mask, (or mix our Wildcrafted Gel into your regular hair-care products).

A mask of sea moss can help your hair hydrate, get a gorgeous gloss, and even improve the well-being of your scalp, resulting in more active hair growth.

The only sea moss soap recipe you need

Now, if you’re all things DIY and hungry to cook something that will be holistic, vegan, and beyond beneficial for your skin, here is the ultimate recipe you can go with!

What you need:

  • ½ cup True Sea Moss gel (flavorless or fruit-flavored)
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lye
  • 3/4 cup distilled water
  • Optional: essential oils for added fragrance

How to prepare:

  • Mix the lye into distilled water cautiously and allow it to cool.
  • Combine the coconut oil, olive oil, and sea moss gel.
  • Gradually add the cooled lye water to the oil mix, stirring well.
  • Use a stick blender until the mixture thickens slightly.
  • Stir in essential oils if desired.
  • Pour into molds of your liking, cover, and let it sit for 24 hours before unmolding.
  • Now you can cut into bars and enjoy the baby skin!
