Popular Asian seaweed for a fair complexion

From the Alariaceae family and native to the Sea of Japan, Wakame is commonly used as an edible seaweed, especially in Japan.  It was historically believed to present anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antivirus properties. 

Cosmetics Benefits

Wakame is believed to possess skin brightening effects, mostly due to its content in fucoxanthin, known to be able to reduce pigmentation. The extract is intended to contribute to diminishing melanogenesis for a brighter and even looking complexion.
