What is “Seacell”? Seacell is a cellulose based fibre made from seaweed. It’s highly breatheable and very soft. When worn, your skin’s natural moisture will release magnesium, calcium and vitamin E contained within the seaweed. It has anti-inflammatory properties and has been shown to protect the skin.
