The best thing about GUAM cellulite wraps is that they are free from PEGs, paraben, silicones, synthetic dyes, and paraffin. No harsh ingredients, but only the highest quality natural ones.


But let's have a closer look at the ingredient list to understand what makes GUAM seaweed cellulite wraps work this fast and still stay environmentally friendly.

TOP 4 ACTIVE INGREDIENTS:

guam algae seaweed for body wraps for cellulite removal body wrap

GUAM® SEAWEED ALGAE:
The main ingredient here is the Guam Algae (Seaweed).

Seaweed for body wraps is rich in iodine, calcium, potassium, and iron. It is known to boost the body’s natural immune system and helps in detoxification, effective against orange peel dimpling caused by water retention. Likewise, it also aids in body contouring by shaping the excess skin and making it smoother.
black tourmaline for seaweed body wraps for cellulite

BLACK TOURMALINE:
This is a hero ingredient #2 right after the Seaweed for body wraps.
It is a natural mineral that can alone enhance the process of cellulite removal.

In short, black tourmaline stimulates microcirculation thanks to a physical phenomenon of body heat absorption, which is re-emitted in the form of Far Infrared Rays (FIR). This spike in temperature brings many benefits: it releases tension from the muscles, improves tissue oxygenation, increases microcirculation in the skin, promotes repairing of injured tissues. Last but not the least, the re-emittance of heat allows for better penetration of ingredients into our body.
marine clay for guam mud seaweed body wraps for cellulite

MARINE CLAYS:
In general, marine clays function is to remove toxins from the skin along with getting rid of dead cells.

They are natural cleansers and leave the skin feeling rejuvenated, soft, and flawless.
  • White kaolin clay is the gentlest and thus great for sensitive dry skin.
  • Red kaolin clay has the most absorbing powers of the bunch and is best for oily skin. This is a great addition to acne/detoxifying masks for the face or body.

FUCUS PHYTOEXTRACT:
Another type of seaweed for body wraps is often used by GUAM.
This type of brown seaweed rich in iodine and polyunsaturated fatty acids has 3 main functions:

  • Acting as a potent Astringent, it shrinks body tissues.
  • Increases the body’s response to anti-cellulite treatment by widening the capillaries to increase the blood flow and provides maximum absorption of the mud’s active ingredients through the skin.
  • Helps to alleviate swollen skin with an excessive amount of fluids.

Fucus also contains mucilage, alginic acid, fucodian, laminarin, and polyphenols with emollient and soothing action.

SUPPORTIVE BOTANICAL EXTRACTS:

horse chestnut protects vessels

HORSE-CHESTNUT PHYTOEXTRACT:
It is another valuable ingredient in cellulite treatment.

It strengthens veins, enhances blood circulation, and acts on edemas as well. It is also anti-inflammatory and helps soothe away inflammation caused by cellulite. Furthermore, it also reduces excess fluids in tissue that reduce the swelling that comes with cellulite.
Ivy extract boosts circulation

IVY EXTRACT:
Blood vessels protection and circulation

Ivy Extract is of great use to formulate cosmetic products with stimulating activity on general blood circulation and especially to treat cellulite, products with anti-irritant activity and cosmetic products with purifying and antiseptic activity.

Ivy Extract contains Hederin (Hederine), an active saponin which is responsible for blood vessel protection and permeability decrease. Ivy further helps to reabsorb the edemas present in the initial stages of cellulite.
essential lemon oil firming skin

ESSENTIAL OIL OF LEMON:
It is a crucial ingredient when it comes to cellulite and slimming treatments.

Studies show that it has anti-obesity properties. Its slimming effect makes it perfect for incorporating in anti-cellulite treatments as lemon oil penetrates deep into the skin, transports active principles with localized effects on cutaneous tissue, and boosts microcirculation.

How to Choose the Best Body Wrap?

Thanks for reading the introduction into the seaweed wraps for cellulite, now you have reached the most valuable part of the article - the actual guide on how to choose seaweed cellulite wrap that will fit your skin needs.

1. Seaweed Body wraps for a specific area:

Guam Beauty offers a range of 7 different seaweed body wraps for each area that works effectively in reducing cellulite on legs, buttocks, or stomach. Depending on your area of focus, it works in the following ways:
  • Stomach wrap: fights cellulite on the stomach and helps to tighten the belly skin which is likely to sag after pregnancy or weight loss.
  • Legs and Buttocks wraps: fights cellulite by reducing the “orange peel effect”, improves microcirculation and skin elasticity, removes toxins, and reduce swelling caused by water retention.

2. Body wraps by different formulas (Hot or Cold).

Hot and Infrared Body Wraps
Infrared body wraps are particularly gaining popularity due to their advanced and fats-acting technique. Luckily, you don’t necessarily have to visit a spa and lie under infrared light to reap the anti-cellulite benefits of infrared heat. GUAM infrared anti-cellulite body wraps are manufactured using premium quality ingredients and seaweed harvested from the pure ocean.

Besides powerful botanical and marine ingredients, the formula contains Black Tourmaline, known for its unique infrared properties, that not only fights cellulite but also reshapes your contour by decreasing the fatty tissues under the skin, basically slimming you down.

According to the GUAM product range hot cellulite wraps are the following:

Cold and Draining Seaweed Body wraps.
Generally speaking, we have our cold formulation Body Wraps for 2 reasons:

1) Some people can't tolerate heat due to skin sensitivity, fragile capillaries, or some medical conditions that do not allow them to heat the bottom part of the body (endometrial tissues, for example).

2) Cold formulas and draining cellulite formulas are more beneficial for people prone to swelling due to water retention. Cold formulas contain natural actives helping to flash out extra liquids and decrease swelling caused by water retention.

Here is the list of cold formula body wraps:

Additional tips!

Here are some professional tips on at-home body wrapping so you can match salon-like results.

1. Take a shower.
If you feel like there is not enough heat in your product OR you can tolerate more then making the procedure after the shower is the best idea. Hot water softens your skin and makes it more receptive to the treatment. This tip is also relevant to all Guam cellulite creams.


2. Use a Body Scrub. Use a body scrub while showering. Of course, we have some amazing prep scrubs in our line, but you can actually use any scrub, as removing dead skin and exfoliation is key here. It will make your skin 100% cleansed and ready for the body wrap.


3. Have a rest. As you always need to use the saran wrap to actually cover the product it's not a good idea to walk while using the treatment. The wrap should be pretty tight around the body for maximum potential. So just relax, take a book and enjoy 30-45 minutes of alone time.


4. Use Boosting Gel. Yes, there is an after-wrap Guam gel that actually helps to prolong the anti-cellulite action of your body wrap up to 24 hours. We have a Hot Infreded Boosting gel, as well as a Cold Formula gel if you need to avoid heat. They both also work like everyday anti-cellulite and skin-strengthening treatments while your skin rests from body wraps.


5. Follow the schedule (below). Try to actually follow the schedule first before you will figure your skin pace. Do the first 3 anti-cellulite treatments every day then each other day all next week. Check the full schedule in the Guam Card attached to each Body wrap order.
