There is a specific red seaweed that has been proven to clear the scalp and calm the inflammation process that could cause the annoying scalp flaking condition. It is a rare seaweed growing in Ireland since the 1930s when a scientist with a great passion for seaweed, called Maureen De Valera, successfully set up a seaweed farm in Connemara. The name of the seaweed is Asparagopsis armata.

The best way to extract this seaweed is to gather it fresh from the shore, blend it immediately with oil and perform an ultrasound assisted extraction at a certain wavelength and frequency for about 10 minutes.

The filtered oil will be clear and quite dense, due to the content of organic silicon. The filtrate (by-product) can be used as ingredient in soaps, as ingredient with anti-inflammation property.

Seaweed Hair Shampoo has the power to balance the hair condition, is suitable for sensitive skin and fragile hair, especially the type with no essential oils added.

Seaweed Hair Shampoo with added Lemongrass essential oil (Cymbopogon citratus) is acting as insects repellent and can be particularly useful to prevent the head lice infestation, quite common problem in primary school children. The scent of Lemongrass or Bergamot are unpleasant for lice and ticks and may prevent even more dangerous side effects as complications cause by parasites.
