This seaweed is an valuable source of important mammalian fatty acids required for optimal health, DHA is an essential fatty acid which must be obtained from the diet or applied topically that our bodies can not synthesize easily, so this lipid must be supplemented.

I am a Beauty Therapist and to be brutally honest,I am quite sceptical about a lot of the so called natural skincare products and their benefits .A lot of my clients would be post chemo patients,and obviously their skin would be very dry,dehydrated and lacklustre,they would also be hypersensitive to strongly scented products.
In brief,I have started to use Dr.Mahers products myself,and on my clients.The results,so far have been excellent.Both the soap and body wash leave the skin feeling clean,without the dry and taut feeling that other products leave.The Liberty Corrective Serum ,which initially appears very thick,glides on to the skin and does not leave an oily residue.The Berry Facial Serum is without a doubt,the best moisturising product I have ever used,within a week of use I noticed a visable difference in my skin,and as an added bonus,it is excellent for scar s.In all of the products,and little goes a long way so they are very cost effective. I highly recommend all of the Dr.Mahers range.

Would it be okay if I used your review as a testimonial on our Facebook page?! Would only put your first name on this.
