Carragahenin, Carrageenan

Carragahenin, (Chondrus crispus) one of many skin nourishing seaweeds. It has been known for centuries that fishermen who handle carragahenin, also known as Irish moss, tend to have soft skin.

Scientists have since discovered that carragahenin interacts with human carotene to give amazingly soft skin. Used as a natural stabilizer, binding agent and emulsifier. Its anti-viral and anti-bacterial activity have brought this natural botanical to light as a possible compound with potential to kill cancer cells.

Carragahenin is unique in its ability to hold considerable amounts of water. Used in Airbrush Tanning solutions and body care products as a skin nourishing thickening agent, which helps hold moisture in the skin layers.
