Records indicate that in Ireland people started collecting seaweed or sea vegetables for a thousand years. Due to our unique geographic position, the west coast of Ireland is perfectly situated to produce seaweed in copious quantities. This ideal environment is due to large amounts of dissolved salts, nutrients and minerals from in-flowing rivers and rich tidal up-wellings from the Atlantic Ocean, producing the best quality seaweed in the world.
Historically bathing in seaweed has long been recognised as therapeutic and healing.
They say everything you’re looking for is right in front of you, you just got to look for it. One of the ocean’s greatest treasures is seaweed. This is Nature gift to us. Yes, the same seaweed you get tangled up in on vacation! But when you use it the right way, it can do amazing things for your skin, and your health.
In order to utilise the seaweed to its full potential Mathew and Gabriel established Atlantic Gold Irish Seaweed. Using the wild Atlantic seaweed, they set out to design and engineer a line of beauty and skin care products of the highest quality, aimed to deliver the benefits of seaweed for human kind.
