DISCOVERING GUAM ALGAE

IN 1986 EGIDIO SIENA,
THE FOUNDER OF GUAM-LACOTE,

arrived at the port of Brest in Brittany (France) he saw boats full of laminaria algae collected from the cold bottoms of the Atlantic Ocean. The algae were spread over the fields adjacent to the sea and dried in the sun and ocean wind until they lost 80% of their weight. This pure Algae concentrate was then taken to the mills and ground to become a very fine powder called the Alga flower.

GUAM SEAWEED MUD: A WINNING INTUITION

From the great love for the sea and from the experience in the field of cosmetics, the winning intuition was born. Egidio Siena, starting from this flower of algae, prepared a formulation, enriching it with plant extracts and other natural ingredients, to obtain the consistency of a mud to enclose all the special properties of marine algae. To verify its effectiveness, he had a scientific test carried out on a sample of 36 women which involved applying the preparation directly on the thighs and buttocks for 45 minutes a day and for several days.

GUAM SEAWEED MUD
THE ORIGINAL RECIPE

For more than thirty years, the recipe of Guam Seaweed Mud has remained unchanged, the type of seaweed used remains the same, collected in the Oceans using the traditional method. Starting from the month of May, when the algae are young and vital, harvesting begins on board boats with an ancient instrument (the "scoubidou"): the algae are collected and extracted from the seabed without harming the mother plant and then free from the water.

Taken ashore, they are evenly distributed in large fields to be dried and aired in the sun and ocean wind. Subsequently, the algae are ground and mixed with the other ingredients through rigorously cold procedures to maintain the original properties and characteristics unaltered.
