Fucus vesiculosus

  • History

    Fucus vesiculosus is widespread in the Atlantic Ocean and the English Channel, where it lives attached to rocks along the seashore. It becomes detached from the rocks during the spring tides and washes up on the beach. The people call it "goémon" or "varech", according to the regions, meaning "flotsam". The name "Fucus" is derived from the Greek word "phycos", which means "seaweed". The species name, "vesiculosus", refers to the appearance of the thallus, with its many vesicles.

  • Cosmetic actions

    Fucus vesiculosus contains alginates and minerals (iodine, iron). It has softening, moisturizing and remineralizing properties. Because it has such an exceptional iodine content, it is believed to have a slimming effect by helping to reduce the build-up of fatty deposits. It also plays a role in improving skin firmness and elasticity.
