CARRAGEENAN _______

(PRONOUNCED: KAR-UH-GUEE-NAN)

MADE FROM RED AND PURPLE SEAWEED
HERE'S WHY IT'S AMAZING _______

It's seaweed-derived and vegan.

Carrageenan is made from seaweed (so it's natural and vegan-friendly). Most of the carrageenan used in commercial products comes from farmed seaweed, not seaweed found in the wild.  

Farmers tie seaweed "cuttings" or "seeds" to lines and the seaweed grows around the line. It can then be harvested, dried (normally by the sun), and then sold to be processed into carrageenan.

It's zero carbon footprint.

Carrageenan is considered to be one of the world’s most sustainable crops. It grows quickly and requires no fresh water, land, or fertilisers.  

Even better, seaweed helps combat climate change. Just like trees, it sucks up CO2 through the process of photosynthesis, acting as a carbon offset. It also reduces the acidification and deoxygenation of the ocean, helping to fight the impacts of global warming on our seas.

It supports small-scale farmers.

Most seaweed cultivation is carried out by small scale farmers in countries like Indonesia, the Philippines, and Tanzania. Seaweed farming doesn't have high capital or technological requirements so can provide a livelihood for coastal communities who have few other employment options.  

It's also an industry where women contribute. In the Philippines 44% of seaweed farmers are women, and in other countries, women help tying the seeds and with harvesting.

What else is in our drops?

Carrageenan is combined with other plant or synthetic ingredients; we never use anything animal-derived (e.g. gelatin) as we are a fully vegan brand. So they look their best (and so we can tell which product is inside), we use cosmetic grade dyes to give them their colour.

What do they feel like?

Small but strong; they feel firm and plump, a bit like a blueberry. They are robust enough to carry around your skincare but will biodegrade when you're finished with them. Either dissolve them in boiling water or add them to your compost bin and they'll disappear. Learn more about how to dispose of them here.
