Exceptional Ingredients in Sea Active™ Skin Care by Vinni Parrinello
Ingredients that produce results, enhance cellular communication and give skin a youthful, healthy appearance.
BSAB (Biogenic Seaweed Antioxidant Broth)- IS the Sea Active™ Skin Care difference. Our products are not made with purified water being the main ingredient. Instead, our products are made with this “infusion or broth” made from a unique “plant” water, infused with seaweeds, teas, herbs, flowers and fruit extracts that hydrate and nourish the skin. The independent research on our unique Seaweed blend shows these seaweeds to kill human tumor cells by prompting programmed cell death (apoptosis). Nutrients from seaweed can pass through the skin’s barrier (stratum corneum) because its elements (Sodium, calcium, magnesium) are of biologic origin so these elements are more readily assimilated by our system and skin.
Note: Red seaweeds are found deeper in the ocean and it’s noted that these seaweeds contain more advanced forms of nutrients that are best for attacking defective DNA. Sea Active™ Skin Care is the FIRST skin care line that features the rare ™BioAlgin Hyaluronate ™Complex, developed by Vincene Parrinello. This is a unique, proprietary blend of phytoHyaluronic Acid from sea and desert plants that is attached to nutrient rich seaweed sources that replenish DNA compromised skin cells and promote intracellular communication. Seaweeds such as Red Fijian and Red Hawaiian, Polynesian and Icelandic also. Palmaria palmate (dulse) which grows on rocks or kelp is another hero ingredient in this product line, along with our new MCR™ (marine carotenoid retinol™) Complex, a better tolerated and performing form of retinoic acid, however from seaweed, reducing unwanted side effects from retinoic acid use. Our seaweed blend contains high amounts of Vitamin C, B6, B12, Iron, Fluoride, Potassium and Protein (we incorporate a special “washing” of this seaweed to decrease the potassium and sodium so that cardiac patients and those with kidney disease can benefit from our skin care).
This BSAB is an “oxygenated sea broth” that is rich in skin oxygenating ingredients , while imparting vitamins and minerals into the epidermal layer. Thermal imaging showed this absorption to reach the basal-junction layer. An ingredient with its own story to tell.
THE SEAWEED STORY™ and Frequencies of SEA ACTIVE™ Skin Care-
Our Hero Ingredients Tell Their Story of How They Rescue and Replenish The Skin™:
Wakame, a winged kelp seaweed, contains 40% fucoidan. This seaweed has been researched in Japan and is praised for its ability to inhibit tumors, improve skin tone, enhances youthful appearance in the skin and is effective for treatment of dry skin
Kombu is another brown, winged seaweed that is high in fucoidan. This seaweed contains germanium, an important trace mineral and skin-healing nutrient, used for hundreds of years by Asian women to keep their skin looking youthful and combat pigmentation challenges.
Bull Kelp from Alaskan coast, Washington and Oregon is high in calcium, magnesium,sodium, vitamin A, C, D, E and K. As an herbal remedy this seaweed detoxifies the body tissues of heavy metal and radioactive agents, eases lymphatic swellings and inflammation with neuritis, reduces the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation also.
This seaweed also has excellent firming and toning effects on the skin, revitalizing skin’s appearance.
Undaria Pinnatifida Seaweed is a brown algae, rich in phytosterols and fatty acids which is an oily extract that preserves skin’s youthfulness in appearance and fights signs of aging, benefitting all skin types, even oily skin.
The WRACK SEAWEEDS-
Knotted Bladderwrack- Ascophyllum Nodosum, has anti-tumor agent properties
Fucus Vesiculousus (Bladderwrack) is high in Fucoidan, Mannitol, Lysine, Phytohormones, Zinc, Bromine, Antioxidants Vitamin A, C, E, and K. This seaweed promotes healing of sprains and bruises, prevents cancer, reduces cellulite, incredible skin toning properties, offers skin moisturizing properties and firming effects on skin of all ages.
In California another name of for this seaweed is Popping Wrack. Because, this seaweed when it’s washed up on our beaches, invites kids and grown-ups alike to jump on the “bladders of the seaweed” causing a popping sound.
Kombu- Sugarwrack (L.saccharina) and Finger wrack (L-digitita)- from Atlantic Coast and Japanese Coast (Lamonaria japonica). Laminaria is Latin for “thin leaf”, this seaweed is olive brown in color. It is high in Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Protein, Laminarin, Fucoidan, Alginate, Vitamins A, C, D, E, and K along with hosting a complex of B Vitamins. This is powerful anti-aging skin care ingredient as it promotes wound healing via stimulation of collagen production neutralizing free radicals, stimulating the immune system (when taken internally) (through transepidermal delivery we can address the immunity cells in the skin) protects the skin and stimulates skin circulation.
Other seaweeds, to be undisclosed for proprietary and trade secret reasons are resourced from California coastline to the Atlantic coast to the European and French Polynesian waters.
The GREEN SEAWEEDS–
The largest classification of all ocean plants
Sea Lettuce is high in protein, calcium, silica, Vitamins A, B and C. This seaweed helps tone the skin, stimulate collagen and elastin production, a cell regenerating seaweed. Also offers hydrating properties. Sea Lettuce increases circulation by dilating tiny capillaries in the skin’s surface, transporting nutrients and oxygen from deep within the skin’s surface layer. Also increase the appearance of skin brightness and vitality.
The RED SEAWEEDS–
Over 6,000 of these red seaweeds have been identified as of the date of this writing
Rhodiphyta algae is the classification category.
Some of the red seaweeds accomplish their ability to help the body or skin release toxins due this seaweed’s colloidal mineral content.
Nori-Porphyra umbilicalis has the appearance of a waving palm in the water. This seaweed contains high levels of proteins, amino acids, calcium, Vitamins A, B and C and is known red seaweed found to suppress chemically induced tumors.
Porcheria hornaminyahae contains a natural cytoxin chemical that kills cancer cells
Irish Moss from Scotland and Ireland coasts is also known as Carrageenan, Sea Moss, Pearl Moss, etc. This seaweed has been used for generations to treat eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and decreases acne scarring while promoting healing of skin rashes from unknown origins. This seaweed has extraordinary anti-aging effects on skin cells. Firms and moisturizes the skin.
Dulse– is very high in Vitamin K. Another name for this seaweed is Palmaria palmate. Vitamin K is supportive of capillary function and circulation. This seaweed has been shown to permeate the epidermal layer (which has no blood vessels) to the blood vessels located in the basal junction layer.
Knotted Bladderwrack is an anti-tumor agent, this seaweed is also known as Ascophyllum Nodosum.
Pacific Northwest Kelp is the richest kelp flora in the WORLD. Their extracts such as Fucoidan, Fucan, Laminarian and Ligans, especially through the Fucoidan, protects skin by inhibiting cancer-cell clustering or attachment, or multiplication of the cancer cells, preventing tumors from making new blood vessels, clinically shown to reduce tumor sizes by at least 50%.
Red Marine Algae is high in Carrageenan, a potent anti-viral agent, that stimulates collagen and elastin production, regenerating skin cells.
THE VALUE OF SEAWEED–
Research has showed us that the air in several major U.S. cities can contain as many as 50,000 germs per cubic meter. Comparing this to sea air, which is virtually sterile, containing an average of 15 gms per cubic meter, helps us understand why the Japanese have developed an ocean-inspired respiratory treatment to re-create the “sea-air” benefits in a therapeutic setting. They call this the Japanese Salt Room, where an effective salt-spray system incorporates moist air, dispersion of essential oils and sea salt.
SEA ACTIVE™ Skin Care is the FIRST skin care line to deliver seaweed benefits in a unique delivery system for immune challenged skin, especially, this special developed ingredient offering the “Sea” benefit from our skin care formulations to challenged skin begins in our Biogenic Seaweed Antioxidant Broth™ (used instead of water as the primary ingredient of 98% of the Sea Active Skin Care products). Seaweed holds nature’s secret and possesses the “secret to life”. Its unique nutritional elements are unlike land-based vegetation and provide the perfect balance of vitamins, minerals, and other beneficial components that research now confirms to be health promoting and disease preventing. Seaweed provides some of the most powerful remedies on earth with the newest classification being developed by our company, a Super Seaweed of sorts.
Remember that our human life began in the womb, surrounding by amniotic fluid, which is very similar to sea water. It makes sense that we gravitate to the oceans coastline for the welcoming rhythmic surf and energy charged beaches. The perfect balance of life, energy and well being in its raw power. Did you know that the air you breathe close to the shore carries healing iodine, anti-bacterial, mineral-rich salt water, as well as healthy negative ions? When the ocean Waves crash on the shorelines and rocks, they create electrically charged atoms (ozone) that are energizing and mood elevating (lightening does the same thing, could be why we have storm chasers). Negative ions encourage you to take a full, deep breath and are known for relieving stress, easing headaches, irritability, muscle tension, depression, lethargy and fatigue. The iodine in saltwater particles from the air relieve lung congestion, clear the breathing passages and regulates body metabolism. Sea ozone even helps calm your mind.
Other important ingredients in the SEA ACTIVE ™Skin Care products other than those already discussed:
AGAR from various onshore seaweeds off the Atlantic Coast, Pacific Northwest, South Pacific and Pacific Southwest coasts gives our cleansers and gel products the gelatinous texture. This ingredient also helps the skin retain moisture levels in the vulnerable epidermal layer that prevents premature moisture loss and topical dehydration that can be one of the greatest contributing factors to cell damage and death caused by injury, pollutants/airborn chemicals or UV radiation.
Dubosia Leaf Etxract inhibits elastase, stimulates collagen synthesis. It’s also an excellent microbial, anti-inflammatory ingredient for use in skin care products.
Amino Acids are crucial for any healthy based skin care product formulation, without these potent building blocks of proteins there is a grave missing link and will most definitely separate winning the anti-aging skin care formulas from the less effective anti-aging fomulas/brands.
Amino acids are chain link molecules (great carriers) they are protein structures excellent for transporting a desired skin treatment to a specific place of concern in the epidermal layer. Here are some of the Amino Acids used in SEA ACTIVE™ SKIN CARE:
Proline- gives the skin a beauty and radiance, a healthy glow builder
Lysine- conditions the skin, aids in cellular and tissue repair. Needed for collagen production
Serine- important for formation of cell membranes
Alanine- important for protein synthesis
Threonine- important for the formation of collagen and elasin
Glycine- repairs damaged tissue and promotes healing
Leucine-protects against muscle protein breakdown
Glutamine- helps prevent muscle and tissue breakdown
Histidine- protects cells from radiation causing cell breakdown from UVA/UVB radiation exposure. This amino acid is also known as an antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals helping to prevent skin cell damage.
Arginine- speeds up healing of skin cell damage and tissue repair
Isoleucine- important to protein synthesis and tissue repair
Tyrosine-helps moisturizing properties penetrate optimally. Cells convert tyrosine into melanin protecting the skin from harmful UV radiation
Valine- important for muscle and tissue strength (helps maintain skin resilience and prevents that falling appearance seen in the cheek areas of aging men and women)
