I had to have more of that seaweed.”  Read on to learn more about Jenefer's process and the incredible skin benefits of organic sea algae.

  • Follain-nantucket

    July 4th is one of my favorite holidays. There’s nothing more wholesome than relaxing outdoors with family and friends. Honestly, who doesn’t love picnics and fireworks?? I also like that the holiday encourages us to honor our freedom and independence—which we all probably take for granted the remaining 364 days of the year.
