Guernsey Seaweed Skincare


A collaboration arose in early March 2020 between Channel Islands Liquor Company and Guernsey Seaweed to try and resolve a major problem on Guernsey – the complete lack of availability of hand sanitiser. 

Natural, nourishing, protecting

After many formulations and trials of our product it was realised that the vitamins, minerals and nutrients that are found within the seaweed effectively counteracted the harsh effects of the alcohol and led to the hands being positively moisturised, helping to prevent stripping of the natural oils in the skin’s protective barrier

Over 6,000 litres of seaweed hand sanitiser have been produced and sold in Guernsey up until September 2020 and the sales have continued, with the local population supporting and giving great feedback on a quality, moisturising product.

As a direct result of the amazing feedback we received from users of our unique seaweed hand sanitiser developed two skincare products - our Face and Hand Cream and Super Seaweed Serum. We've now re-branded these popular products and introduced two new ones to our range. 

Daily Moisturiser (previously Face and Hand Cream) – Still our successful and popular recipe - the moisturiser consists of majority seaweed gel that has been blended with grapeseed oil, natural soy lecithin, shea butter and 1% plant based preservative. 

Hydrating Seaweed Serum (previously Super Seaweed Serum) – The purest of our products, containing 98.5% seaweed gel and 1.5% natural preservative and that is it. The seaweed gel is packed full of vitamins and minerals to provide a real boost to the skin. Use before applying moisturiser and make up. Customers report the serum can be effective for eczema and acute skin conditions, including acne.  It can also be used as a soothing after sun application to reduce the effects of burning and soreness. 

Nourishing Night Cream - After the success of our first two products we have developed the nourishing night cream which has a thicker consistency for use at night or when extra protection is required. 

Eye Serum + Vitamin C - Specifically created for hydration and moisture around the eye area as well as brightness around the eyes.  We extract the vitamin C for another local seaweed through a complex method of vacuum distillation which produces a higher proportion of vitamin C than can be found in oranges! 

All these products are presented in a no-air pump bottle which is why we do not need to cram it full of chemical preservatives.
