SeaBalance: the world’s first seaweed-based cosmetic emulsifier

Our proprietary process utilizes the world’s most regenerative material to create a natural product that’s healthy to use, and healthy for the planet. This high-performance seaweed-based emulsifier is manufactured  through an extraction process and is PEG-free and COSMOS approved. 


SeaBalance: A Natural O/W Emulsifier with Immediate Impact

20 Megatons of Sargassum wash up on beaches in the Caribbean yearly, resulting in:
* 8.4 megatons of CO2e emitted per year
* 30-35% decline in tourism in Quintana Roo, Mexico alone
* Biodiversity loss and degradation of beach ecosystems, eg. coral reefs

By upcycling Sargassum into eco-friendly products, we restore ocean ecosystems while creating new opportunities outside of tourism for local workforce.

Moreover, we directly contribute to decarbonizing our world: one tonne of Sargassum prevented from rotting on the beach avoids 450 Kg of CO2e from being released into atmosphere.

SeaBalance is a unique all-natural emulsifier that performs particularly well in cold process skincare applications, resulting in a unique and silky skin feel

Our proprietary green chemistry process creates an oil-in-water emulsifier with a very efficient, low-use rate that smoothly blends into your water phase with either hot & cold processes; works with a wide range of emollients; and achieves a smooth and silky texture with minimal oil.




The Future of Plant-based is seaweed

Seaweed doesn’t need land, water, nor added fertilizers to grow – it has everything it needs in the ocean. As such, it is the world’s most regenerative and adaptive plant-based resource.

A seaweed-based emulsifier that delivers on clean labels & nature-based.

Brands are increasingly being held to account for how sustainable they are. SeaBalance not only offers a truly fossil free ingredient for clean-label products, but a larger environmentally friendly story that directly links your brand to climate recovery, ocean cleanup, & social impact.
