When used in conjunction with our Algae Plump + B3, Earth Marine Water (at night), you’ll get the full Haeckels glow. You can read down below for the all-important science breakdown.

The Science

Actives: Palmaria Serum, Fucus Serum
This reformulated and reimagined Eco Marine Facial Cream is the first product to feature our newly formulated Palmaria serum, which is an ultrasound-assisted ethanolic extraction of Palmaria Palmata, commonly known as dulse. Dulse is collected from the Margate shore, cleaned, dried and milled, before being ultrasonically treated, filtered, and recovered using a rotary evaporator. The extract has been shown to contain crude mycosporene-like amino acids (MAAs) including palythine, which are utilised by the algae to protect DNA from solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) induced damage. Similarly, these MAAs can induce some level of photoprotection from UVR when applied topically and have strong antioxidant activities that help protect against UVR induced oxidization.
The Fucus serum is extracted in a similar fashion, using Fucus serratus, or toothed wrack. This extract has been shown to have antioxidant properties, with the phenols present aiding in the protection from damaging free radicals.
Our reformulated base cream is more versatile than ever, utilising a blend of apricot kernel oil, raspberry seed oil and pomegranate seed oil, with a reduction in water content compared to our previous formulation. It can be applied to wet skin for a lightweight moisturising feel, or for deep lasting moisturisation, apply to dry skin.

Why We Make It

Well here’s the cool thing; we’re growing dulse in our Margate shop. Whilst this first batch is made from Dulse seaweed harvested off the coastline in Margate, the new shop cultivates this and allows us to produce the extract directly in front of you. It’s also the best moisturiser you’ll find.

Why We Love It
