Questions About Seaweed Bath Co.
Q: Are The Seaweed Bath Co. products right for me?
A: Our products are made for everyone, especially those who suffer from irritated, dry, scaling, flaking and/or red skin.
Q: What are the benefits of seaweed-based products?
A: For generations, cultures around the world have used the power of seaweed to help soothe the symptoms of irritated, flaking and scaling skin. Seaweed is rich in essential and non-essential amino acids, which can help to hydrate dry skin and alleviate flaking, scaling and red skin often associated with certain skin conditions. Soaking in a seaweed bath allows your body to easily absorb a large amount of valuable nutrients, amino acids and oils that nourish the skin. The nutrients in The Seaweed Bath Co.’s products soothe irritated, red skin by increasing pH alkaline levels in the bloodstream while simultaneously reducing acidity levels in the body and the skin.

My Psoriasis Story
My name is Adam Grossman and I am the founder of The Seaweed Bath Co., LLC. I know first-hand about the everyday challenges of psoriasis and eczema, as I am a long-time psoriasis sufferer who struggled daily to find ways to improve the condition of my skin.
Psoriasis and eczema are chronic skin diseases, for which there is currently no cure. The severe skin inflammation and irritation associated with psoriasis and eczema lead to dry, itchy, red, flaking and scaling skin.
After trying numerous “miracle’ treatments and meeting with countless psoriasis specialists, I hopelessly watched as my flaking, scaling, and red skin worsened. Psoriasis took its toll on me both physically and emotionally.
My first psoriasis symptoms appeared on my head. I had no clue what it was. My skin then became very red and started itching, scaling and flaking. Before long, I had moderate to severe psoriasis on my head, knees, feet, elbows, thighs and worst of all, my hands. After getting out of the shower, my skin would literally drip off my hands. I spent thousands of dollars on different creams and ointments to try to get rid of the disease, only to find that my psoriasis symptoms would always come back worse than before. My journey, which ultimately led me to founding The Seaweed Bath Co., was simply fueled by my fear of the long-term damage I was doing to myself using pharmaceutical medicines.
After deciding against biologics, I set out to find natural alternative ways to fight my psoriasis symptoms and soothe my itching, flaking and scaling skin. After all, psoriasis is a chronic disease and I didn't want to spend the rest of my life hiding.
My dermatologists suggested that I soak in the ocean as often as possible. After spending time in the ocean, I always felt and saw a noticeable improvement in my flaking, red skin. Having read many articles and hearing success stories in online community forums and psoriasis and eczema blogs about how the ocean's nutrients improve the effects of psoriasis and eczema for many sufferers, I took note. Recognizing the difficulty I had in finding the time and resources to soak in the ocean every day, I searched for a feasible way to bring the ocean into my own home to treat and soothe my psoriasis on a daily basis.
I focused my studies on two popular natural alternative methods often used to improve scaling, flaking and red skin: Thalassotherapy and Balneotherapy.
Through this learning process, I quickly discovered the substantial benefits of seaweed and how Americans with skin conditions were starting to use it more and more. While seaweed is a relatively new ingredient used to fight flaking and scaling skin in North America, Northern European and Asian cultures have used seaweed plucked from frigid, nutrient-rich waters for centuries to alleviate the conditions that lead to irritated and red skin.
After countless hours of online and offline discussions and research, which included many hours soaking in the bath tub, I found that certain varieties of seaweed effectively and dramatically reduced the redness, dryness, scaling and flaking of my irritated skin. The brown seaweed which we use in all our products is known to be a potent natural anti-inflammatory. We are working with the University of Manitoba in Canada to further their already substantial research on the effects of brown seaweed on skin conditions including psoriasis. My experience was proof enough however. After using seaweed-based formulas for only a short period of time, my flaking and scaling diminished and the redness of my skin faded. Over the course of months, I completely stopped my topicals steroids and have not had to go back on them since.
I was so encouraged by the positive effects of the seaweed on my skin and my overall well-being, I decided to create a line of all-natural seaweed bath cosmetic products to share with other sufferers of skin problems. Today, I am proud to say that The Seaweed Bath Co., LLC offers a variety of affordable, all-natural cosmetic products to help sufferers like you better manage severely irritated skin.

“Dear Adam, My son Felipe has been battling eczema and flaky, scaling skin for years. He is a diabetic and wears an insulin pump. We have tried everything from cortisone creams, to zinc and aquaphor with little success until we tried your product. The immediate results of your Seaweed Powder Bath were astonishing. Felipe went into the bath with red itchy dry scaly skin and came out with incredibly improved smooth soft skin. It was such a relief not to having scratch himself until his skin was raw and such a help for the insulin pump site placement. We have continued using your products and are so happy to have a natural alternative to alleviate his skin sensitivity.

“I just wanted to drop a note of Thanks! I can’t tell you how excited I am that I’ve found these products. My skin condition went from a patch the size of a drink coaster on my left leg to covering both legs from the knee down, elbows and scalp. Then it started showing on the top of my left hand and I knew I had to find something quick. I’m glad to say that my hand has no signs of it (I’ve only had the products for a week) and the rest has stopped itching and the redness has greatly dissipated. Thank you, again!!!

“I was so thrilled with the Wildly Natural Seaweed Powder Bath! After using it I felt like I had been at a spa. I was so totally relaxed. I used to take these wonderful baths in Montecatini, Italy and when I got into the tub with the brown seaweed colored water it reminded me of the mud baths. These products are special!

“Best all over body line for sensitive skin sufferers: The Seaweed Bath Co. My last find of the year is my favorite find. While reading an article about ideas to treat Eczema, which my daughter has occasional bouts with, I stumbled upon a review of a product line called The Seaweed Bath Co. I was intrigued so I put some of the products to the test. Both me and my little girl responded well to the all natural, paraben free and dye free items that include a seaweed powder bath, body wash, hand butter, foot butter and more.
