Palmaria palmata is also commonly called “dulse.” This is a type of macroalgae (seaweed) that is red in color, and grows in the Atlantic ocean off the coast of Canada, and in the oceans of Western Europe, as well as the West coast of Africa
Palmaria palmata contains high levels of folate (vitamin b), magnesium, calcium, iron, and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5). It also has a small amount of amino acids, which are valuable to the skin. These nutrients help stimulate the skin, promote healthy cell growth, and improve skin texture and appearance.
Palmaria palmata is a natural emollient, meaning it can attract moisture from the atmosphere and environment to your skin, protecting it from environmental damage and ensuring your skin always looks smooth and supple
