After launching the Benedetta line in February 1996, with exactly 9 authentic preparations, a facial mask was not among them.
We slowly integrated into selling to estheticians and they were the ones that requested that we create a clay mask of sorts. I initially felt that our Rosemary & Geranium Cleanser was all anyone needed to achieve many of the attributes one expected from a clay mask. In fact, there is some clay in that cleanser. Leaving the cleanser on for 20 minutes while massaging congested areas is very exfoliating.
I felt that clay was far to stripping for the skin and would be counterproductive in bringing the skin into balance. I resisted until I was given a pound of some sea veggies that had been micronized (made into flour). Not complete, I added some others, along with Blue green algae, and voila, a Non-Clay Anti-Aging Facial Mask was born. Made fresh with Lavender Hydrosol, you can customize the viscosity to suit your skin.
I am not one to follow trends and run wild with one ingredient as the magic bullet to all your skin care needs. It is not only a system of skin care preparations that work together that matters, but the synergies and collaborative ingredients that form a product.
Benedetta’s Anti-Aging and Anti-wrinkle Seaweed Mask is unique in composition and is suited for most all skin *conditions. Rich in trace minerals, B vitamins and Amino acids, our Seaweed Mask clarifies, detoxes, as it rejuvenates. Part of its unique rejuvenation, when left on for 50+ minutes, is found in the synthesis of collagen and fibronectin fibers which increase skin firmness.
*If you have a medical skin condition or are allergic or sensitive to iodine, please consult your physician before using.

I have never been a fan of sodium laurel sulfates or any of the derivatives of chemically produced soap. When in search for a direct source of Shea Butter, produced in west Africa, I found in so doing that black soap kept coming up. Once finding a reputable, fair trade company, they sent me a pound of black soap. They said that it was approximately 48% shea butter and the saponifier was that of a palm oil and plantain ash variety. I thought I’d give it try. Wow, not bad but a little gritty and definitely dirty. This soap, like shea butter is handmade by women’s cooperatives, usually in crude outdoor areas. In the earlier years I would find shea butter shells, twigs and rocks mixed inside. I would double sometimes triple strain the material to purify it.
The Sacred Soap is intended to cleanse without stripping the skin’s delicate balance as it leaves you refreshed.
Using both local and far harvested botanicals made into hydrosols, along with the right amount of essential oils, the Sacred Soap offers the perfect balance of cleanse and moisture.
I do not formulate for aroma, but for effect, however, as often happens we get many users addicted to the smell, many convinced it has ginger in it, which it does not.
It’s a thinner soap, as we do not use emulsifiers to bind it, I believe this is one of the purest soaps on the market and that uses NO lye!

Can the oil be purchased separately?
Hi Barry! Unfortunatley the bath oil cannot be purchased seperately. It is only sold together with the Seaweed Powder.
other than the skin benefits, how should you feel after the bath. I sweated a lot and felt a little weak after the bath. A piece of fruit helped a lot.
We do recommend people drink lots of water before and after our Seaweed Bath. It is very powerful when it comes to expelling toxins from the body and can leave some people feeling a little shaky. For these reasons, we recommend that pregnant individuals and those with weakened or compromised immune systems NOT use this product.
First of all I have Fibromyalgia, so I'm always looking for something to help with it somehow. In the past I have used Epsom salts baths and c.b.d. bath bombs. Sometimes they work great and other times not so much. That's always disappointing. I bought the seaweed bath a couple of times but hadn't bought it for quite some time. I remembered how well it worked on the pain I experience and I said to myself time to buy more. It's raining where I live today so tonight I'm taking a seaweed bath! I think it works better than a lot of other things I have tried in the past. Last year I bought one for my massage therapist and she loved it. She works and has a large family by today's standards, and she works out. She told me it was the best soak she's ever tried. I hope other customers will try this product and be just as happy as we were with it.
I take a lot of baths with various bath salts, etc. This Seaweed Bath is the very best way I know to detox, de-stress, and feel better. Drink a lot of water afterwards, make sure the water temp. is as hot as you can handle and be prepared to relax.
The Seaweed Bath has saved me from colds and being word down from work for many years. I also ALWAYS travel with it and use it after most flights. Last year the bath really revived me on a layover in Dubai. Now in the age of the pandemic, I am using the bath the boost my immune system.
I love how soft my skin was after I soaked in this bath. At first it did smell like seaweed (which I actually like) but once you add the essential oil it smells wonderful. I’m looking forward to more soaks.
I've been using the seaweed mask for at least 15 years and I really like the way it makes my face feel and look. It feels clean without feeling dry and makes my skin look brighter.
