(Fucus serratus)

This olive-brown seaweed is found at all British coastal areas and around the Irish coasts, too. It grows densely on the seashore; each serrated, strap-like frond is about two centimetres wide and originates from a stalk, anchoring it to the seabed.

Alginates of seaweed origins are used to form emulsions, barrier creams and hand creams.

Crude preparations and extractions of seaweeds have been used for their medicinal properties for centuries. They were often used to make cough remedies, soothing lotions and cosmetics.

Toothed wrack seaweed contains large amounts of vitamins, minerals and trace elements, which strengthen the hair.

Seaweed has many culinary uses due to its high nutritional value. It is used extensively in food manufacture as a thickener and binder in ice creams, sauces, sweets, and preserves. These days it is still widely used in toothpaste, medication and toiletries.

We gather toothed wrack seaweed from Poole harbour. We then infuse it in boiled water and add it to the product.

We use it in our Big shampoo to deliver all the nutrients of the seaweed directly to the hair. This works to soften the hair in combination with the sea salt, which improves the condition of the hair and gives greater volume and life.

Our Daddyo shampoo has fresh organic lemon and toothed wrack seaweed infusion to soften and add shine to the hair.
