Ever heard of Phytessence Wakame? If you're interested in good skin care you should have. No, I'm wrong. If you're interested in the BEST skin care products you should be familiar with Phytessence Wakame. Here's why.
It's a very strange substance. It's actually a seaweed from the coast of Japan, or to be more specific, a sea algae. It is eaten as a part of the Japanese diet both dried and fresh and has been a part of their diet for hundreds or thousands of years.
It is no coincidence that the Japanese consume a lot of Phytessence Wakame and they have some of the best skin in the world. It is prized by the Japanese for this reason.
So why is Phytessence Wakame so good for the skin? What does it have that makes it perhaps one of the most important modern ingredients for the best skin care products?
Phytessence Wakame is full of all sorts of wonderful substances that are extremely good for your skin health. Most of the B group vitamins are there, which help so sooth skin inflammaiton. It is very rich in calcium having around 15 times more calcium than milk and it is high in many important vitamins and minerals.
Especially iron and potassium. All these come together to keep the skin healthy. For example they do wonders to maintain the moisture balance of the skin and keep it well hydrated which keeps your skin younger looking and healthy.
But equally important, if not more so, is the ability of Phytessence Wakame to perform a particular function for us that is of enormous benefit to our overall skin health. It helps inhibit the effects of hyaluronidase.
What in the world is hyaluronidase I hear you say? (I have very good hearing.)
Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid in our skin. And hyaluronic acid is very important to our skin. The effect of hyaluronic acid, when combined with elastin and collagen, is to maintain the smoothness and elasticity of your skin right into old age. It keeps your skin toned and looking youthful. It makes sure that your skin not only looks youthful, but is healthy too.
So you need hyaluronic acid in your skin, and if hyauronidase breaks it down you don't want too much hyauronidase. And Phytessence Wakame inhibits the effects of hyauronidase, so that has to be great for your skin.
But you won't find Phytessence Wakame in too many big brand skin care products, (most of them don't work anyway). But you can find Phytessence Wakame in the worlds best skin care products which aren't any of the big brand names. And surprisingly at a very competitive price too.
The reason? Phytessence Wakame is expensive and the big brands don't use it for that reason. However the small niche company that makes the worlds best skin care products does use it, because they don't spend millions on TV advertising, instead they spend big on product quality.
