Lacote Guam was started by Egidio Siena, an expert in cosmetics and a great lover of the sea. One day he visited the port of Brest in Brittany and discovered that all the wonderful glistening seaweed was an essential ingredient in traditional treatments and recipes for health, beauty, and body care.
For more than 400 years, local fisherman, called “seaweed fishermen,” have collected and laid this seaweed out on the beach to dry and preserve its essential nutrients. Organic (photosynthetic) vitamins, trace minerals, lipids, plant sterols, amino acids, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, antioxidants, polyphenols, and flavenoids are but a few of the nutrients in the algae. Legend has it that this very seaweed was the main cause of the irresistible charm of the enchanted Ulysses.
All Guam products contain this algae collected off the coast of Brittany during the middle of its growth cycle. The young algae is extracted from the bottom of the ocean floor using a traditional instrument called the scoubidou, and then carried ashore to be aerated and dried by the sunlight and ocean breeze for three days.
According to a clinical study from a major Italian University, the algae in Guam products offer many benefits to the body. It has been proven to improve skin firmness, skin color, microcirculation, skin elasticity, and reduce the appearance of cellulite and thigh circumference. It re-mineralizes, detoxifies and firms while regulating the moisture balance of the skin, delaying aging and fighting free radicals.
Lacote Guam is a solar-power generated green company that uses photovoltaic panels to harness the energy from the sun. In keeping with tradition, they extract the algae the same way it has been done for centuries, without the use of fertilizers or pesticides.
