At Grates Cove Studios, we meet people from all over the world. The question we often get is, “How did you start making seaweed lotion?” It all started with a walk along the shores of Grates Cove, Newfoundland after a winter storm. With my wife Courtney and our daughter, we went beachcombing and outdoor exploring, things that have always been a part of how I learn about my environment. A process which ultimately leads me to what I create.
On this particular day, I saw seaweed that had washed ashore after the storm. Picking it up, I started rubbing it on my hands. We returned to our studio, seaweed still in hand so I could continue to learn about it. Over those couple of days, I was fascinated by this ocean plant and continued to rub it on my hands. I noticed that my dry, cracked artist hands got immediate relief from the gel that covered this sea plant. Courtney and I both started researching the benefits of Seaweed for skin and our Seaweed Skin Care Lotion was created in 2015.
