This St. Patrick’s Day, we’re celebrating the luck of the Irish — Irish moss, of course. One of eXO’s Next-gen natural ingredients, we love Irish moss for its all-natural skin-enhancing properties. Ahead, we’re sharing three facts about this clean and green ingredient; one that harnesses the magic of the ocean for seriously radically results.
- In eXO’s groundbreaking formula, Irish moss plays an important role, helping to fend off free radicals, facilitating cell turnover and targeting fine lines and crepey areas. Most importantly, it assists with collagen production, helping to plump up the skin and to leave it looking oh-so-luminous.
- Irish moss is a nutrient powerhouse! It contains high amounts of potassium, calcium, phosphorus, sodium and iron. It also possesses an array of vitamins, including Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
- True to its name, Irish moss grows abundantly along the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean, near the British Isles as well as continental Europe. It’s basically a seaweed, one that thrives in low water and on rocks.
Luck of the Irish, indeed!
