Years and years of research has caused the cosmetic industry to dramatically shift, especially in terms of the components of their products. Just by looking at your ingredient list, you’ll find that it went from purely chemical-based components years ago to now being mostly composed of botanical extracts and natural ingredients. Meanwhile, the search for quality ingredients that address cosmetic issues, such as stubborn cellulite, are currently being done and thoroughly studied for their safety and efficacy. One such ingredient is seaweed, and many cosmetic companies mix seaweed extracts into topically-applied formulations like creams.
So how does a seaweed anti-cellulite cream work? Made of bladderwrack seaweed (Fucus vesiculosus), clay, plant extracts, and hyaluronic acid, seaweed cream is effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite by maintaining skin elasticity and smoothing out cellulite in turn. It does so by inhibiting collagenase, elastase, and hyaluronidase, which all degrade the skin matrix. Seaweed also has antioxidant properties that delay skin aging and keep it looking smooth and refreshed.
What’s Seaweed Anti-Cellulite Cream?
Detox Cellulite Cream is an anti-cellulite cream for cellulite made by Seaweed Bath Co. that features notable ingredients including bladderwrack seaweed (Fucus vesiculosus), plant extracts such as coconut oil, kukui oil, aloe vera, shea butter, and antioxidant-rich green coffee bean extract, as well as hyaluronic acid.
These amazing ingredients are all packed in a 6 fl. oz. tube. Some product details you should know are that it’s free from gluten ingredients, it’s sulfate- and paraben-free, and is vegan as well. It's also a cruelty-free product as it's not tested on animals. This product is also best to use with Detox Purifying Body Wash-Awaken (Rosemary + Mint) for more optimal benefit.

Detox Cellulite Cream can give you smoother and firmer-looking skin. It’s also best for those who want a visibly improved skin appearance. This firming detox cream has active ingredients with proven benefits against skin imperfections such as the following:
Bladderwrack seaweed (F. vesiculosus) - Seaweeds have properties that can improve the appearance of loose skin, namely, the ability to inhibit collagenase, elastase, and hyaluronidase. These enzymes are the ones responsible for worsening skin imperfections by degrading the skin matrix, resulting in skin sagging and older-looking skin. Additional skin benefits of the nutrient-rich seaweed include its antioxidant properties, its ability to improve skin tone and pigmentation and maintain skin hydration.
Antioxidant-rich green tea extract and green coffee bean extract - Green tea extract and green coffee bean extract contain potent antioxidants which are capable of giving up their electrons to neutralize the free radicals, destructive molecules which may destroy other cells of the body.
Ultra-hydrating hyaluronic acid - Hyaluronic acid helps avoid dry skin and makes skin appear softer and more supple since hyaluronic acid locks in moisture from the skin barrier, thus avoiding skin dimpling. Since it's a part of the skin matrix, it's also capable of making the skin softer, has anti-aging properties, and it also helps in wound healing.
Coconut and kukui nut oil - Coconut and kukui nut oil both can help hydrate the skin by locking in the moisture in the skin barrier. They also have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.
Safety And Efficacy Of Seaweed Anti-Cellulite Cream
Since it's made of natural ingredients and only topically applied, the seaweed anti-cellulite cream is safe for use, with mild side effects by those who may form allergic reactions to some of its ingredients, which may be manifested by rashes.
Creams and other topically-applied cellulite products are also proven to be effective, with a moderate efficacy in thigh circumference reduction according to a meta-analysis. But regardless of these preliminary pieces of evidence, further studies must be done to ascertain the safety and efficacy of this product to ensure that the best interests of consumers will be forwarded.
Other Products And Procedures Used To Get Rid Of Cellulite
Aside from seaweed anti-cellulite cream and other topical agents that promise to get rid of stubborn cellulite on legs and other cellulite-prone areas, there are other procedures and treatments that you may undergo if you aim for skin toning and cellulite removal. These may be home remedies, medical procedures, and QWO cellulite injections.
1) Lifestyle Changes
Although the propensity to develop cellulite is largely attributed to genetics, unhealthy aspects of our lifestyle may also potentially affect and make cellulite more visible. Following these pieces of advice may help prevent exacerbation of cellulite:
Exercise regularly - Exercising helps shed extra pounds and remove unwanted fat from the body. Depending on the type of exercise, it can help tone your body by burning fat or building muscle, leading to a visible reduction in the appearance of cellulite. With the help of exercises like aerobic exercise and strength training, the skin can look smoother and firmer, especially in areas that are prone to building up cellulite.
Hydrate properly - Drinking enough water, at least 8 glasses a day, helps flush out toxins from the body. It can also help improve blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.
Eat healthy - Diet also plays a part in exacerbating the appearance of “orange peel skin” that is characteristic of cellulite. There's no need to follow special diets to do this; you just have to avoid foods that may exacerbate the appearance of cellulite. Some foods that should be avoided so as not to worsen cellulite appearance include sodium-rich foods that can lead to water retention and sugary foods that can weaken the support structures of the skin.
Stop cigarette smoking - Cigarette smoking adversely affects blood circulation towards the skin, causing it to be thinner and appear sagging. This, in turn, makes cellulite more pronounced and more noticeable.
2) Home Remedies
Home remedies aren't really backed up by scientific evidence regarding their efficacy in getting rid of cellulite. However, it won't hurt to try adding them to your skincare routine for healthier skin and an overall better skin appearance. They're also budget-friendly and easy to employ. These home remedies include:
Getting a deep massage - Deep-tissue massage, which can be done at home or by professional massage therapists, can help relax tense muscles. It can also help improve blood and lymph flow throughout your body.
Dry brushing - Every stroke of the bristles of a body brush or strand of a natural plant loofah may help improve blood and lymph flow, remove dead skin cells, and cause new skin cells to proliferate. Best done before or after a shower, strokes from this technique may be long, fluid strokes, or circular motions.
Apple cider vinegar - Diluted apple cider vinegar may be taken orally three times a day to help facilitate weight loss. Alternatively, it may also be applied topically in the skin to also act as an antioxidant for the skin.
3) Medical Procedures
Medical procedures are advanced skin-improving procedures from the latest technology. They're designed through scientific evidence and are performed by healthcare professionals so their safety and efficacy are ascertained. These medical procedures include:
Cryolipolysis - Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive procedure that targets fat cells in the body and freezes them. Freezing causes the fat cells to break down and get reabsorbed by the body. Removal of unwanted fat helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, although several treatments are needed to achieve more visible results.
Ultrasound - Ultrasound is another non-invasive procedure that entails the delivery of sound waves to remove fat, especially in cellulite-prone areas like the abdomen and thighs. It takes 2 to 3 months before results become visible in this treatment and it's also recommendable to combine it with other cellulite treatments for more pronounced results.
Laser and Radiofrequency Treatments - Laser and radiofrequency treatments are minimally-invasive procedures that entail delivering infrared light or diode laser energy to get rid of cellulite. Through the heat energy from these treatments, tough bands under the skin are broken up, making cellulite less visible.
Carboxytherapy - Carboxytherapy entails the delivery of carbon dioxide beneath the skin to improve the blood flow towards the area where carbon dioxide was introduced. Improved blood flow helps you have better-looking skin, along with the reduction of the dimpling of skin associated with cellulite. The desired results may be achieved after 7 to 10 treatments.
Microdermabrasion - Microdermabrasion entails the use of aluminum oxide or salt crystals to stimulate skin exfoliation to encourage the growth of new skin cells.
4) QWO Cellulite injections
The best medical procedure available is the QWO cellulite injections, known to be effective for moderate (with skin that looks like cottage cheese) and severe (with skin that looks like a "mattress"). It's a procedure that lasts only for 30 minutes but with results that may last up to 90 days. It's an injectable type of procedure so minimal side effects are those associated with injections such as bruising and pain at the injection sites. It's also one of the few cellulite treatments that have gained FDA approval.
