Repêchage CEO and Founder Lydia Sarfati presented Seaweed Rx, which highlighted the science behind Repêchage's number one ingredient: seaweed. Sarfati covered the structure of seaweed and how it's composition is both nourishing and rejuvenating for the skin. As Sarfati stated, "We need to start skincare intensive treatments for the body. For many years we have focused on peeling the skin, but how about rebuilding the skin we have? The skin is the largest orange in our body - it deserves our attention."
