Living Sea Therapy

Living Sea Therapy is a window on Cornwall’s unique geological past. It includes the underwater voyage of Cornwall, with ancient rock dramas and mysterious kelp forests, which provide us with cobalt water and unique marine minerals. In collaboration with our sister companies, Cornish Sea Salt Co. and Cornish Seaweed Co. and a team of marine biologists, environmentalists and leading therapists, we have developed our Living Sea Therapy® range. Using sustainable hand harvesting and exclusive processes based on the natural sciences, we have developed our miracle ingredient Living Sea Complex®, which combines three vital elements to utilize the restorative powers of the sea especially for you and your skin.

The story begins deep beneath the breaking waves where rich salt and sea minerals, unique to the cobalt water around the Lizard peninsula, have been collected by The Cornish Sea Salt Co. We harvest a few meters from our rugged coastline by hand using a zero-impact, 3,000-year-old craft process and innovative technology. In addition to harvesting delicate sea salt flakes covered with beneficial minerals, we also harvest a mineral-rich elixir known as Cornish Sea Salt Minerals, which enters all our marine cocktails to provide a wealth of benefits to revitalize your skin.

The story continues as we drift through centuries-old kelp forests along the rocky shoreline to enjoy rugged, primitive plants that thrive in one of the roughest environments in the world. We have taken the essence of three of the most hardy, most nutrient-rich species to bring an abundance of natural vitamins, minerals and goodness directly to your skin. Your conscience will also benefit because the sustainable diving and foraging techniques used by our sister brand, The Cornish Seaweed Co., determine the way in which all seaweed is harvested in the UK.

Alle producten van Living Sea Therapy zijn zowel geschikt voor vegetariërs en veganisten.

Cornish Sea Salt

Cornish Sea Salt Co. started almost ten years ago. harvest the mineral resources of the Atlantic Ocean from the rocky shores of the Lizard peninsula. This is how the Salt House team matches a 3000 year old artisanal process with modern techniques while protecting the oceans.

Salt production in Coverack, on the Lizard peninsula in Cornwall, dates back to the Iron Age. Today the Cornish Sea Salt Co. harvest. sea ​​minerals just a few steps away. At the time, seawater was dammed in rock pools and allowed to dry out before being cooked in clay pots over gas fires. It was vital for the preservation of meat, but also in the Cornish sardine industry. With the revival of the extraction of rock salt in Cheshire in the late 19th century, the production of sea salt in coastal towns died.

Fortunately, ten years ago, Tony Fraser, a conservation enthusiast, walked past the Salt Works of the Iron Age in Trebarveth, near Coverack, and had the idea of ​​revitalizing local sea salt production. Cornish Sea Salt Co. started acting and creatively bridged the gap between old, traditional methods and innovative, modern technology. Cornish Sea Salt Co. had developed a technique to sustainably harvest ultra-rich marine minerals by hand at the source, from the pure waters off the Lizard peninsula.

Natural minerals, unique technology

Now, with the help of a highly scientific but zero-impact process, Cornish Sea Salt Co. filters, crystallizes and cuts. Every day 15,000 tons of seawater, produces the world famous sea salt used by chefs, restaurants and food producers around the world.

In the Salt House in Porthkerris on the lizard, just a few meters from the translucent Atlantic waters, seawater is purified and then passed through positively and negatively charged electrolytic plates, the charged ions being moved and relatively higher concentrations of sodium chloride being formed by inverted osmosis. In the crystallization phase the gas fires and clay pots have disappeared. In their place are huge barrels and ultraviolet lights. The groundbreaking process results in beautiful crystals formed on the surface. As with old techniques, the salt crystals are carefully harvested and dried by hand.

“The result is a very clean, efficient and sustainable process,” says Philip Tanswell, Managing Director of CSS. “We take the seawater out and put it back right away, removing only 0.5% of the salt from the water. We have a benign, really ecologically friendly process.”

Cornish Sea Salt is pure and fresh, as nature intended, which means that it retains more of the health benefits while being stripped of extracted salts and sold separately. It is an important reason why we use it in our unique formulas for Living Sea Therapy, including lotions, creams, salt scrubs and washes. It makes perfect sense to say it on your skin, Philip says: “If you look at the mineral profile of our body, they fit exactly with the minerals and salts in the ocean.”

There are more than 60 minerals in the sea around the lizard, which is three times more minerals by type than allegedly found in the dead sea salt (21) and they are all unique to these waters, a designated area with exceptional natural beauty and conservation of the sea Zone. We are able to consistently extract these minerals with the same purity levels in each individual batch. These 60 minerals cover and fill all the cracks of the sodium chloride crystals that our team harvest. They create a rich layer of goodness that reflects the content of the ocean. In the culinary sense, this translates into unique taste and nutrition; while it is in skin care, it offers many health and beauty benefits.

The more well-known minerals in our sea salt are calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and sulfur. These five minerals alone increase blood circulation, reduce inflammation and help heal acne, fight aging and itchy skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Philip adds: “That’s why the blood in the sea is pumped into the sea, your senses are stimulated and your skin becomes hydrated and tighter.”

Living Sea Complex

Our miracle ingredient, Living Sea Complex®, reveals the secrets of our pure Atlantic source through an infusion of Cornish Sea Salt Minerals and wild seaweed extracts, harvested by hand from the cobalt water off the coast of Cornwall.

Unique Geology & amp; Rich in ingredients

During our ocean voyage we bobbed through ancient kelp forests and were on top of the Iron Age sea salt on the Lizard peninsula. The last part of our journey takes us back in time as we marvel at the rare geology of the southernmost peninsula in the UK, where the story of Living Sea Therapy began more than three million years ago.

The Lizard Peninsula is bordered on three sides by the ocean and almost completely separated from the rest of Cornwall by the Helford River. It is a geological anomaly that records an ancient ocean. It is no surprise that this rugged cape is appreciated by researchers and is protected by extensive UK conservation legislation.

It is designated as an Area of ​​Outstanding Natural Beauty, classified as a Special Site of Scientific Importance (for the conservation of nature and geology) and is a Marine Conservation Zone (where nationally important, rare or endangered habitats and species are protected). The Lizard has also been defined by Natural England as a national character area for its landscape, biodiversity and geodiversity.

Rocks and cliffs are home to picturesque fishing villages that are located in picturesque bays and safe harbors. But this rugged coastline is littered with shipwrecks; deserve the nickname: “Graveyard of Ships.” This headland is exposed to the elements, but it is one of the hottest places in Britain. It is clean air and the water is not polluted by industry; and the land is sparsely populated, with a sense of island community. The geology of this promontory, in its turquoise and cobalt water, tells the story of the dramatic past of the planet, deep beneath the seabed.

“The Lizard used to be independent of the UK,” says Mark Sullivan, president of Living Sea Therapy. “An enormous amount of rock rose and changed the landscape more than three million years ago, along with Cornwall. There are only two other places in the world with the same geological profile, which both border on land. ”

The makeup of the lizard has intrigued geologists for hundreds of years. Groundbreaking geological research in the last century shows that the lizard consists of ‘ophiolite’ – a portion of the Earth’s oceanic crust that has been lifted and exposed above sea level. Two of the rock stars in our geological story are the red snake skin-like ‘serpentine’ and the crystalline ‘gabbro’. According to the Geological Society of London (GSL), both clotting rocks are usually found under the seabed, but are unusual to find at a local bay just a few miles from where Living Sea Therapy is located.

“These unusual lizard rocks were originally deep beneath the surface of the earth, below the ocean, but were pushed to the surface when two continental plates collided,” said Natasha Smith, member of the GSL Geography Conservation Committee. “This border between the Earth’s crust and the mantle is usually seven miles below the seabed. Coverack is one of the few places in the world where it can be seen on the surface of the earth.”

The GSL adds that Kynance Cove offers “one of the best and most famous exposures of the lizard serpentine.” Coverack is only a few miles away from Living Sea Therapy headquarters and Kynance Cove is less than 25 km southwest.

Gabbro was used by early settlers to make pottery. Remnants of Lizard clay works are still visible and gabbro clay pots have been found in Africa so far. Serpentine rock is also common in Victorian architecture because of its dark appearance – it was chosen to be chosen by Queen Victoria who mourned for Prince Albert, because it replicated her state of mind.

We know that the rocks in the waters around the lizard produce more than 60 minerals (three times as many as in the Dead Sea), including magnesium, calcium, sodium, potassium and sulfur. A large part of that mineral composition is due to rare rocks such as serpentine and gabbro, which were previously buried deep under the ocean floor.

“The Lizard Peninsula is a unique geological landscape,” says Mark. “Our salt consists essentially of dissolved rocks and in our extraction process we concentrate those minerals to a high level, which results in our pure and natural range of salt crystals.”

Unique combination of Seaweeds – Kombu, bladderwrack and sea spaghetti

These three seaweeds – kombu, bladderweed and sea spaghetti – are some of the oldest and hardest plant species in one of the roughest environments in the world. This is why this magic trio is good for your skin and your body.

Cultures in Asia have been aware of the benefits of seaweed since ancient times. Indigenous peoples from Iceland, Europe and New Zealand have embraced it all, whether they eat it or use it in health-promoting rituals. In the UK we have just started and the Cornish Seaweed Co. has reached the forefront of this initiative, pioneering hand harvesting techniques and paving the way for other British harvesters.

Three of the most hardy, most nutrient-rich species that our team harvest all contain in our formulations, kombu, bladderwrack and sea spaghetti. We have won the natural goodness of these powerful species for our unique Living Sea Complex®, which is used in all our products.

Wild Cornish Seaweed

“These three seaweeds are remarkable,” says Tim van Berkel, co-founder of Cornish Seaweed Co. “They have all the vitamins, minerals and trace elements that your body needs, more than any other plant – I wonder why it has taken us so long to appreciate their benefits in the UK.” Tim and co-founder, Caro Warwick-Evans, since 2012, have been harvesting sustainable seaweed from the cobalt waters of Cornwall by hand and have even helped write the code of conduct with Natural England, an overview of best practices for harvesting. “These seaweeds thrive in one of the most difficult environments in the world,” says Caro. “They grow at shallow depths because they need sunlight and they are exposed to direct sun, wind and rain twice a day during low tide. They are beaten by the waves of Cornwall in Cornwall and survive the sea currents and strong winds. All these things are major stress factors, but they have evolved their processing mechanisms with changes in salinity and temperatures over billions of years, and it is these mechanisms that make them so good for our bodies. ”

Our pharmacy under the sea

Core components that make seaweed so strong are ‘alginates’, which retain moisture. They offer the same effect if you put them on your skin so that it does not dry out. They nourish, hydrate and soothe the skin and soothe dryness, acne, psoriasis and eczema, as well as the removal of toxins and cleansing pores, stimulating a firmer skin tone and improving overall skin elasticity. All three seaweeds in our Living Sea Complex® are full of magnesium, manganese, calcium, copper, iodine, iron, potassium, phosphorus and zinc, essential elements for life. They are also rich in natural vitamins, especially A, B, C, D, E and K.

Atlantic kombu
Also known as kelp, kombu is how most people imagine being ‘seaweed’. You see this large dark brown species washed ashore on the beach or in kelp forests just below the waves. Kombu contains high levels of iodine, magnesium, calcium, iron, vitamins B7 and D.

Bladderwrack – our original source of iodine
You will see this well-known, olive-brown seaweed attached to rocks around the tide line, rising to two meters. This species was the original source of iodine, first discovered in 1811. In the days before modern medicine, bladderwrack was the only source of iodine for medicinal purposes. Iodine is an essential trace element that is essential for normal growth. It removes toxins and heals wounds because it is a natural antiseptic. It is also essential for thyroid health and to ensure that hormones and metabolism remain in a healthy balance. It is also a great source of beta carotene, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron and some of the B vitamins.

Sea spaghetti – immune system booster
Sea spaghetti is also a large brown seaweed, but not closely related to the shells or the wrecks. It grows up to three meters long and can form large dense mats near the Cornish coastline that covers large areas. It contains fewer minerals and vitamins than most other seaweeds, it is rich in compounds that are known to help the immune system. Sea spaghetti contains a lot of magnesium, manganese (good for healthy bones) and calcium, as well as vitamins B2, C, B7 and E.

Cornish Sea Salt minerals

This is how we made a substance with the same salt content of the Dead Sea, but with absolute consistency and three times as many minerals. Since Cornish Sea Salt Co. started in 2008 with the harvesting of salt from the rocky shores of the southernmost peninsula of Cornwall, the team made a powerful discovery. While harvesting the salt, they realized that they also had something unique, a wonderfully powerful by-product with a salt content (salt concentration) that contradicts that of the Dead Sea. The team called it Cornish Sea Salt Minerals, realizing that one day it could have great uses in body care. It is literally ‘a concentrate of the sea’. Mark Sullivan, president of Living Sea Therapy says: “Living Sea Complex contains Cornish Sea Salt Minerals, a unique, scientific concentrate of fresh Atlantic waters found on the Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall. Purified and enriched by a benign process based on reverse osmosis, Cornish Sea Salt Minerals has a salinity of 31.5%, similar to the Dead Sea, while it is nine times more concentrated in minerals than regular seawater, what we have done scientifically and naturally is to create a unique concentrate from the sea, an elixir. ”

Mineral intensity

In terms of composition, it is reported that the Dead Sea contains 21 minerals, while the Cornish Sea Salt Minerals contain more than 60 minerals, partly due to the unique coastal geology of the Lizard peninsula. Moreover, we are able to guarantee the consistency of the product in every formulation based on our controlled purchasing process and our own process. In the culinary sense, this translates into taste and nutrition. In skin care, however, this offers significant health and beauty benefits for our Living Sea Therapy range. Our skin is our largest organ and we absorb about half of the skin care products in our bloodstream, so we have made it a priority to know the precise breakdown of our products. The most important minerals that are concentrated in our salt minerals off the coast of Cornwall are calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and sulfur. Our body uses these minerals in different ways, but mainly to maintain healthy skin. These five minerals alone increase blood circulation and reduce inflammation, while other components remove toxins, hydrate, naturally exfoliate and replenish the skin, thereby providing anti-aging benefits, as well as improving elasticity and texture. In combination with the organic ingredients in our Living Sea Complex®, our products have a powerful impact.

Absolute consistency

The sea is a living environment full of minerals that are vital for the body, good for the mind and essential for healthy living. The sea is the richest known source of skin hydration, protection and renewal, used for centuries for its beauty and health benefits. Salts removed from the Dead Sea have variable mineral consistency because they come from different locations. When we make Cornish Sea Salt Minerals Elixir, we can guarantee the quality and the exact mineral profile of our ‘Cornish Sea Concentrate’. “We have made a product similar to the Dead Sea salt, with three times as many minerals and with much more consistency,” says Mark. “” We came from the sea. “It makes perfect sense to use Cornish Sea Salt Minerals on our skin because our body’s mineral profile is the same as the ocean. Tracey Lawes, Associate Director of Living Sea Therapy, says:” Er are about 80 different types of minerals in our oceans. If you look at the mineral profile of our body, it corresponds to the minerals and salts in the ocean. ”

Pure Essential Oils

It is not easy to capture memories, sensations, moods – that dreamy calm of lying on a sun-drenched beach, the drama of walking along the Atlantic coast and the adventure of diving under the waves. To evoke Cornwall’s bouquet on the coast, from vacation, rest, pleasure and reflection, we embarked on a worldwide journey to pure essential oils from all over the world.

“It’s hard to bottle the scent of the Cornish Atlantic,” says Tracey Lawes, Associate Director of Living Sea Therapy®. “It’s so subjective. Everyone has their own memory of the ocean, whether it’s gorse, salt, seaweed or sea spray. We already had the abundant health benefits of the other natural ingredients. But we really wanted the emotion, the feeling , add the vote. ”

Living Sea Therapy® products combine pure essential oils with wild Cornish seaweed, Cornish Sea Salt Minerals and their panacea, Living Sea Complex®.
