Wild fucoidan: Skin nourishment from the pristine waters of Patagonia

Fucoidan is a superstar organic skincare ingredient, backed by more than 1,500 clinical research papers and it is attracting worldwide attention for its incredible regenerating effect on the skin. 

A powerful anti-ageing skincare agent found in wakame seaweed, or Undaria Pinnatifida, Fucoidan protects against the elements — the drying, abrasive effects of sun, wind and salt. 

Our fucoidan is wild harvested from pristine ocean waters in Patagonia. Wild-sourcing is the next frontier of skin nourishment. It guarantees purity, traceability and clean beauty. 

It's no accident that fucoidan is the powerhouse ingredient behind two of our products as it's a source of natural compounds that have a powerful regenerative and anti-aging effect on the skin. 

Rare by Nature products containing fucoidan:

How Fucoidan Works On Your Skin 

Fucoidan is loaded with potent antioxidants which neutralise harmful free radicals that can damage skin cells and contribute to premature ageing. Fucoidan reduces oxidative stress and minimises the appearance of fine lines. It smooths the skin for a more youthful and radiant complexion. 

Hydrating skincare

Fucoidan acts as a natural humectant, helping to hydrate and moisturise the skin. By improving the skin’s moisture content, fucoidan can enhance skin elasticity, suppleness and overall hydration, leading to a smoother and plumper appearance. 


Inflammation is the underlying factor in many skin conditions, such as acne, rosacea and exzema.  The anti-inflammatory properties of fucoidan sooth irritated and inflamed skin, reduce redness, swelling for a calmer and healthier complexion. 

Skin regeneration

Fucoidan supports skin regeneration and wound healing.  It stimulates the production of collagen and can accelerate the healing of damaged or wounded skin. 

UV Protection

Fucoidan protects seaweed from the harmful effects of the sun and studies have found that fucoidan transfers this property to skincare by absorbing and blocking harmful UV rays. This can help reduce the risk of UV induced damage.
