About Seaweed

Since 1980, Repêchage, meaning "to rescue" or "second chance," has created a full range of nutrient-rich seaweed-based skincare products featured at top spas globally.

Forerunners in sea plant technologies and pioneers in seaweed treatments and cosmetics in the US, Repêchage researchers seek out specific seaweeds, beneficial for a range of skin conditions and therapeutic needs. The rich blend of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids and anti-oxidants in seaweed makes it the ideal main ingredients for detoxifying, oxygenating, re-balancing, hydrating, anti-aging, and renewing benefits. Our seaweed is harvested from the clean seawaters off the Brittany Coast of France and processed by our proprietary method to deliver all the nutritive benefits from the sea to the skin.
