How it works?
Answer:

Thanks to its remineralising and dermo protective properties that reduce Cellulite* and fat deposits under the skin, GUAM Algae patented formula is uniquely potent working in the subcutaneous level of the skin. GUAM Seaweed Mud is clinically proven to reduce Cellulite* and a 2cm reduction of thigh circumference after the first application.

Scientific research on seaweed proves that when used in muds and baths it helps to fight cellulite and skin ageing. Seaweed must however preserve all the original properties of the plant in order to retain its remineralising and dermo protective properties that reduce Cellulite* and fatty deposits.

Cold mixing and processing methods must be adopted to maintain and preserve the unchanged characteristics of the plants. Guam powdered seaweed formula is mixed with a unique green clay, blended with phyto-extracts of Ivy and horse chestnuts to stimulate the lymphatic system and blood circulation. Essential oils of oregano and lemon are added to increase cell permeability, firming and toning.

Why is seaweed an effective tool against cellulite?
Answer :

The many beneficial properties of Guam Seaweed are recognized by scientific research: seaweed has excellent remineralizing, detoxifying and anti-cellulite properties; it restores the skin’s natural hydrolipidic balance, delays aging.

The topical use of Marine Algae (Seaweed) is on the most efficient approaches of using seaweed to reduce cellulite, mostly in a form of body wraps. A hot wrap urges a human body to sweat, which makes impurities leave the skin and the body.

It also improves skin microcirculation which adds a glow and smoothness to the skin.
Is Guam natural?
Answer :

Yes, Guam products Active Ingredients are proudly all natural.

GUAM Seaweed has always been selected, harvested and processed according to traditional methods so as to retain all the effective properties of the plant that is useful for the body. Seaweed must be harvested selecting the youngest and most vital plants in full respect of the environment’s equilibrium.

GUAM harvests its seaweed during the same period every year and from the same area of the ocean bed. In the month of May, when the seaweed is young, harvesting begins. On board boats, harvesters use an ancient tool known as the “scoubidou” to extract the plants from the seabed and remove all the water from them.

GUAM Seaweed is brought ashore and then laid out in huge fields to be dried and aired by the sun and ocean winds for 3 days. The ocean breeze will eliminate 80% of the water. It is then reduced down to a powder and transported to the factory. The airing and drying processes must take place immediately after harvesting using traditional methods.
